When asked about his relationship with Tiny, Tip states:
?There is no beef [with Tiny]. We good. We straight. Everyone else got the problem.
We see each other. We speak. We talk. We spend time together.
That?s still one of the best friends I have in the world. I can just be a better best friend than a husband.?
For the record, it’s no secret around?Atlanta that the couple have lived apart for years now but managed to save face for the sake of their VH1 reality show.

If you recall, T.I. once rented a huge “bachelor pad” miles away from the “family home” (click?HERE?if you missed that), and soon, Tiny purchased her own mansion a few miles away from the home they shared on the show.

But I digress…
In the interview, Tip?adds that marriage isn’t necessarily his strong suit, stating:
Marriage is going to distract me and deter me from taking my family onward and upward.
And that could be selfish, but ultimately, I?m the patriarch of this family. And it?s my responsibility to take us onward and upward. I just have a purpose and I don?t always have the time to do the thoughtful and considerate things that a husband should do.
In response to Tameka deserving alimony and child support for their 3 biological children, Tip said:
?Money is not an issue, I don?t care about that. Alimony pales in comparison to the potential of what I can produce if I?m focused and pushing forward.?
The final season of ?T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle? premieres Monday, April 17, 10 p.m. EST on VH1.
