The “U Don’t Know Me” rapper held a Valentine’s Day segment on his “Expeditiously” podcast in which he, his wife Tiny Harris, Kodjoe and Parker discussed dating, family and marriage.
While referencing the challenge for him and Tiny to keep their marital issues private, T.I. asked the “Soulfood” twosome how they keep their “problems” in-house.
“Speaking from a married couple that has not been as good at keeping your problems in-house, how do you make it look so easy and how do you guys seem so perfect?”
Kodjoe responded, “Life’s not easy, but it’s simple. … You have to be willing to give your partner a chance to f–k up royally and not run for the heels, but to stick it out and grow through the process.”
“That’s how she got to be such a good human by me f–king up so much, so you’re welcome,” T.I. said of his wife.
Tiny then asked Kodjoe and Parker, “How do keep it where it stays in-house? The f–kups. I haven’t heard any dirt on them.”
“I don’t think there’s a lot of major dirt, but we’re also private and we respect each other enough where I would never want to embarrass myself or her or the kids or anybody,” Kodjoe replied.
T.I. joked with the “Addicted” actor, saying he made all men “look bad.” The father of six added, “I’m just joking I admire that.”
Twitter and Instagram users felt T.I. was wrong for assuming that Kodjoe and Parker had “dirt” or “problems” in their marriage.
“‘She’s a better human because of all my fuck ups’ …..Wooow. I dont want to be a ride or die. F–k that s–t. I hate how he (TI) try to normalize his bs 🙄‼️ Tiny so damn bamboozled it’s sad 🤦🏾♀️ all men don’t cheat”
“I’m listening to TI’s podcast and he got Tiny on there with Boris Kodjoe and Nicole Parker. And TI asked them how they keep their ‘dirt’ on the low and Boris said ‘i respect my wife and kids enough not to embarrass them 🥴”
“Give them the other space to fuck up doesn’t mean cheating 🤦🏽♂️🙄. Tiny done let this 🤡 make her part of the circus. Long story short Boris doesn’t cheat bc he actually loves his wife 😇”
“T.I. doesn’t realize you don’t *have* to have dirt??? What a clown. Whew throw the whole man away. Stop cheating on your wife smh”
T.I. and Tiny will have been married for 10 years this year. The Xscape singer revealed late last year that her husband cheated on her in their marriage and publicly humiliated her with other women. After filing for divorce twice against the rapper in 2016 and 2017, Tiny reconciled with T.I. in early 2018. They pair have been seemingly working on their marriage since.
