The highly-anticipated episode of Red Table Talk with rapper T.I. had his wife Tiny by his side, was expected to address the controversy surrounding comments about the “Top Back” rapper’s daughter. Part two of the episode will be just as dramatic as part one, as the couple addressed life after T.I. returned home from prison.
In clips posted to the Red Table Talk Facebook page, T.I. and Tiny are seen in a second part of their now infamous “hymen gate” episode taking on the topic of how their relationship dynamics changed after the Atlanta rapper came home from prison. It is no secret that both artists have had their run-ins with the law. According to People, in October 2007, T.I. was arrested before the BET Hip Hop Awards in Atlanta Georgia and charged with two felonies: possession of three unregistered machine guns and silencers and possession of firearms by a convicted felon.
He was sentenced to one year and a day in prison. He reported to prison in May 2009 but was released seven months later. Then in 2010, both T.I. and Tiny was arrested on drug charges, which led to his 11-month sentence, which he served from Nov. 2010 until Aug. 2011.
“When I went to prison I guess she felt like, ‘Well now I have to figure out what I’m going to do. Because I don’t have you here to continue the protocols and practices that we established in the fundamental stages of this relationship.'” He said. “So when I got back the world was upside down. She kinda had an air like, ‘It’s my time.’ I thought we were going to hit the ground running and get back to things being the way they were.”
In a second clip, Tiny, who did not speak much in the first part of the episode, seemed to take offense to her husband’s perspective on her newfound voice.
“Once I got on my own two feet, I felt like I should have a voice too,” Tiny said, “and that voice, it was a little different than what he was used too. And that to me is what caused the issue. It wasn’t because I was being outlandishly disrespectful.”
T.I. attempted to interject, but his wife wasn’t having it.
“If you recall,” she continued, “you could not move, you could not go anywhere. I was still in the house [because] I was still on probation doing all the things, but because I had a voice that was not so timid; to me this is my outlook on it.”
“This is her perspective,” host Jada Pinkett-Smith said as T.I. continued trying to interrupt.
“He felt like ‘this is not the woman I left,” Tiny said, “‘this is not the woman I wanted. If I tell her this she’s gonna listen and she’s going to do it the way I want her to do it. He went and found somebody where he could be like ‘hey, don’t move. Do that,’ and I was not her.”
In 2018, footage leaked online appeared to show the once self-proclaimed “King of the South,” cheating on Tiny. The couple addressed the video on their show The Family Hustle.
The dramatic episode will air Monday on Facebook Watch.
