Rumors of their demise have been greatly exaggerated (at least that’s what they want you to think)!
A few days ago a huge rumor broke out that Clifford ‘T.I.’ Harris and his wife Tameka ‘Tiny’ Cottle-Harris were calling it quits.
It all started with a cryptic message Tip posted as the couple were in L.A. enjoying Grammy week, where he implied that his life was about to change.
Tip mentioned things were about to change but he’s since deleted the post. He’s also publicly acknowledged the ‘rumor’.

President Barack Obama delivered his annual State of The Union Address last night (January 28, 2014).
During his speech, Obama identified areas where he felt he and Congress could work in unison while also making note of issues that distinguished the Democrats from the Republicans.

A winter storm has paralyzed metro Atlanta and other parts of Georgia and prompted Gov. Nathan Deal to declare a state of emergency for all 159 counties in Georgia Tuesday afternoon (January 28, 2014).

As everyone left work around the same time, it only took a few hours for traffic in Atlanta to come to a complete halt, stranding hundreds on icy roads and interstates.
Any hope of a winter wonderland was crushed by the miserable reality that it was dangerous ‘black ice’ coating roads and preventing cars from moving at all. By late Tuesday evening, hundreds of vehicles had been abandoned as many were still stuck on interstates and side streets throughout the metro area.
