Tameka “Tiny” Harris is responding to rumors that she and her rapper husband T.I. are headed for divorce.
According to a rep for the “T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle” stars, Harris, 41, “has read so much about her marriage in the past few weeks that it’s time to set the record straight and really educate everyone on the facts,” reports People.
“Certain blogs have ‘reported’ that she’s going to be a single mom, she’s getting a divorce, she has a new residence and everything in between. On behalf of Mrs. Harris, this is the truth — Tameka and T.I. are good. They love each other and they have a beautiful family with seven amazing children. For them, it will always be family over everything.”
As fans know far too well, it’s been a trying year for the pair. In May, a man was shot and killed at T.I’s New York City show. In June, Harris’ 20-year-old daughter Zonnique was apprehended at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport for carrying a weapon through security. Most recently, the rumor mill has been buzzing with gossip of infidelity (on Tip’s part) as well as marital strife to which T.I. initially weighed in via Instagram in July. “Lies will be told … but Truth will be seen!!!” read the caption. “I feel no need to address gossip or respond to peons.”

The couple has been together since 2001, and tied the knot in 2010. With seven children between them, T.I. and Tiny welcomed their newest addition, daughter Heiress, on Saturday, March 26, 2016. “[We’re focused on] staying together, staying friends, being understanding of one another and continuing to care,” T.I., 35, told PEOPLE earlier this year.
