TI and Tiny have found themselves and their relationship thrust into the spotlight yet again this week. Floyd Mayweather recently visited Drink Champs with Noreaga to discuss the 2014 altercation with T.I. in which the rapper tried to fight Mayweather over an alleged affair with Tiny.
Now, the couple is finding themselves at the butt end of Twitter users jokes after an interview on T.I’s podcast expediTIously with married actors Boris Kodjoe and Nicole Ari Parker.
Wanting to know the secrets to their marital success and how they’ve managed to keep their marital problems on the low, TI started the conversation with a question….
T.I. :“ Speaking from a married couple that has been as good as keeping your problems in house…how do you make it look so easy, how do you guys look so perfect? It’s the cat eyes ain’t it? It’s the damn cat eyes.”
Married 15 years compared to T.I’s and Tiny’s decade of marriage together Kodjoe and Parker have made very few headlines concerning their personal lives compared to the numerous headlines for marital indiscretions of Mr. and Mrs. Harris.
Boris: “Life is not easy but it is simple…If you make some right choices life can be simple. There might be some challenges and adversity that might come up, that you’re not in control of — which is the not easy part but if you have a solid constitution with values and principles and made some good choices you can get over those challenges and if a relationship I think its the same thing when you are willing to give the other person the space to f*ck up..you have to be willing to give your partner chance to fuck u up and not run for the hills.”
T.I. was definitely feeling this as he said his f*ck ups have helped Tiny become the person she is today. Meanwhile Tiny was wondering, “how do you keep it where you know it stays inside, stays in the house Ti chimes in…you mean the f*ck ups? “ Where the singer replies, “Yeah I mean I haven’t heard any dirt on them.”
Appearing not to know what to say next Nicole stammers a bit before Boris answers, “ I don’t think it’s a lot of major dirt but we’re also private and we also respect each other enough that um… I would never want to embarrass myself or her or the kids or anybody.”
T.I.: That’s so sweet. You making all of us look bad.
Boris: Well, you asked me a question. What do you want me to do, lie?
T.I.: (Jokingly) Show’s over, man!
Tiny: Laughs That is a good man.
T.I.: I’m just joking but I admire that.
The couple also discussed their early years of dating, relationship rules, as well as sharing and comparing hilarious stories of raising their families and how to keep the bedroom lit.
