T.I. and Tiny’s marriage woes have played out in the headlines and on social media since the rapper was caught getting handsy with “Greenleaf” star Asia’h Epperson. As such, an entertainment website reported the couple’s issues will be chronicled on a revived version of “T.I. and Tiny: The Family Hustle.” But according to Tip, that’s not the case.
“To whom it may concern… if it ain’t come from me or @majorgirl it ain’t real. Family Hustle On Ice until further notice. Thx,” the rapper said on Instagram in response to a July 9 report from the Jasmine Brand.
The website cited sources who claimed the VH1 reality show, which was canceled in 2016 with its final episode airing in 2017, would begin filming new episodes this month. The insiders also alleged fans will once again get a glimpse into the couple’s professional and family life and that they’ve been offered 10 episodes.
Aside from chronicling the spouses and their six children, sources also said the new “Family Hustle” will feature appearances from Tiny’s pals. They include Shekinah Jo, Monica, Toya Wright and her daughter Reginae Carter.
But according to T.I., the sources got things wrong and fans have been bummed out to hear his confirmation.
“Ohh, shucks not real, it is on ice until further notice😣”
“I wish it were true, loved the show!”
“Damn I got excited.”
“Awe man! I love that show! I wish it was coming back.”
“Damn I was just happy @majorgirl @troubleman31 come on and show the world how human ppl go thru good and bad in life and still be solid.”
T.I. and Tiny’s marriage has been on the fritz after the rapper was spotted with Epperson last month. Since then, Tiny has spoken out on social media against being disloyal, while Tip has kept quiet.
Most recently, Tiny posted the following on her Instagram story, providing insight into her thought process as she mulls divorcing her husband of nearly 8 years.
