AceShowbiz - Tameka Cottle a..k.a. Tiny finally breaks silence on T.I.'s "distraction" remark. In an interview with Essense Magazine's "Yes Girl!" podcast, the former member of Xscape also addresses the state of her marriage to the "Dead and Gone" rapper.
Tiny begins by admitting to being confused by Tip's recent remark. "I had to...like how could he just ...like, a distraction?" she said, before revealing that her estranged husband still doesn't get why his comment might come across as offensive.
"He cannot understand what in the world did he say that wasn't right...like, 'I don't get it.' I'm like, 'You don't get it?' [He said,] 'Like, I don't get it. I didn't say anything bad about you,' " she shares. "And I'm like, 'That doesn't make sense...That's a cop out, pretty much. Like you're too old for that. A distraction?! Boy, you've been married for seven years going on now, and you've been in this relationship for 15 years now. Okay? ' "
During the interview, Tiny neither addresses the reason why she and Tip seek an annulment nor confirms any rumors of infidelity. However, she does say that all of the women after her estranged husband make it difficult to be married to him.
"It's crazy because they don't really care," Tiny explains. "Women today they don't really care that it's just for a night. So how can a man...they keep throwing it and keep throwing it. Like, how are they supposed to stay normal and just faithful when this is going on all day, all night? It's a lot."
Despite their failed relationship, Tiny says that she and Tip are still the best of friends. "We still talk all the time," she reveals. "We're still together all the time. I don't know... it's a crazy thing. But, we definitely had it out about that. On the show, you'll see more about it."
Tiny addressed similar issues while appearing on "The Wendy Williams Show" on Thursday April 20. Of her marriage to Tip, she said, "We just cannot keep it together." The mother of five added, "I guess, entertainment, life, everything...it's just a lot. They call him a sex symbol, I guess."
