Tiny, pictured above arriving at T.I.’s court appearance on Friday afternoon decked out in Gucci and gold, was all smiles as she made her way up the stairs at the Richard B. Russell Federal Building.
Her relaxed demeanor was later replaced with raw emotion after U.S. District Judge Charles Pannell Jr declared that her husband of less than six months “has had about the limit of second chances” and was sentenced to serve just under a year behind bars for a violating probation. Although the rapper has plans to appeal the ruling I guess its safe to say the honeymoon is officially over.
Shouts out to the homie Miss Info for summing it all up without putting everybody to sleep:
Sources at the Atlanta Federal Courthouse and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution report that a judge has revoked T.I.’s probation, and ordered him to serve 11 months in following his arrest for drug possession in Los Angeles on Sept 1, 2010.
In that incident: T.I. and his wife, Tiny, were pulled over in their Rolls Royce after an illegal u-turn on Sunset Blvd. And as a result: “…a U.S. probation officer alleged that T.I. committed three violations of his supervised release from prison: possessing ecstasy, testing positive for opiates and associating with a convicted felon.” (source: AJC)
Two days before his big day in court, Clifford The Big Red Dog stepped in to aid police negotiators trying to talk a man out of jumping to his death from a 22-story Midtown building Wednesday afternoon, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports.
And the winner for Most Elaborate Hail Mary Attempt At Not Becoming A Booty Warrior goes to . . .
It all went down earlier this afternoon — when cops responded to a 911 call about a man who was threatening to jump off a building in downtown Atlanta … the same building where the Ryan Cameron Radio Show is based.
We’re told T.I. heard about the jumper on the radio — and called Ryan Cameron to see if there was anything he could do to help out with the situation.
Ryan Cameron tells us … he told T.I. to roll over to the building, where the rapper met with police and recorded a heartfelt video message which cops then played for the man on the roof.
It doesn’t help that he looks good in State Property Burnt Orange, either.
Hip-Hop star T.I. failed a drug test with his probation officer and tested positive for marijuana and codeine, the active ingredient in the illegal drink “Sizzurp.”
T.I. was stopped around 10:40PM on September 1st for allegedly making an illegal U-turn on the Sunset Strip. When officers searched the car they found ecstasy on the rapper and his wife, Tameka “Tiny” Cottle.
T.I. and his wife were released on $10,000 bail and could face up to a year on the possession charges in Los Angeles.
But things could be more serious for T.I., because he is on three-years supervised probation, after he was convicted of attempting to purchase machine guns with silencers before the BET Hip-Hop Awards in 2007.
Now T.I. must face the judge who cut almost nine-years off of his original prison sentence and allowed the rapper to serve just one year, due to his celebrity influence over teens.
T.I. probation officer listed three possible violations of his probation, including the ecstasy charge, associating with a convicted felon named Cortez Thomas and testing positive for opiates on September 2nd.

No, really. Let’s all take a break from the zest overload that is ATL Black Pride Week for just one itsy bitsy, Brian White’s teenie weenie peen (Google is your friend) moment. In his latest video Kid Fury dishes some much needed advice to Mr. and Mrs. Clifford Harris. Preach preacher!
Really, Clifford? You out of all people? After how many second and third chances? At this current phase of your career? It’s too early in the morning for me to wrap my head around this (the current time is 5:36 AM) so I will give it a go when the sun comes out.
GO DIRECTLY TO JAIL. DO NOT PASS GO, DO NOT COLLECT $200.
The honeymoon is over for T.I. and his wife Tameka Cottle because TMZ has learned they were arrested tonight and booked for the alleged possession of a controlled substance.
Law enforcement sources tell us L.A. County Sheriff’s deputies pulled over the multi-platinum selling rapper and his wife in a Maybach on Sunset Boulevard around 10:30PM. Deputies say they smelled marijuana, and after searching the vehicle they arrested T.I. and Tameka.
“I had my opinions about elements of the show — how my personal life was made public on so many levels. But, the show itself never did anything to me. At the end of the day, I think [Tiny] calculated her pros and cons and came to the conclusion it was time for her to move on.”
“I, myself, I am not interested in reality television; just me, myself, speaking. I would love to continue to support [Tiny] in whatever she decides to do. I just don’t think there is a place for me in that world.” (BET.COM)
Minus the beauty supply store eye contacts (people, let Shar Jackson do Shar Jackson) all signs point to a clean diagnosis. Tameka’s Curious Case of the Cottles has been cured! Run laps around the church house and do a jig if you please. I already have.
