Now that the hymen conversation is out of the way, T.I. and Tiny are opening up about their marriage.
In the second part of their ‘Red Table Talk’ conversation, T.I. reveals he felt inadequate after returning home from prison and finding that his wife, singer Tameka “Tiny” Harris, had become head of the household.
“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,’” T.I. told hosts Jada Pinkett Smith and Adrienne Banfield Norris.
He continued, “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.”
“That was an acclimation period that I had to make it through,” T.I. admitted. “Me just coming back and not being in the position that I was in, it left me feeling lesser than, so I had to figure out ways to make myself feel proper and adequate again. And that led to things that led to things that led to things.”
