Diana Ross Dishes Advice to T.I.

It’s not every day a showbiz veteran dishes advice. So when the legendary Diana Ross offered some words of wisdom to T.I., he took heed.

The rapper has remained tight-lipped when the topic of marriage comes up, preferring to keep his relationship with longtime girlfriend Tameka “Tiny” Cottle private. “Why offer people the opportunity to have an opinion about something they shouldn’t have an opinion about?” he asked Power 106’s Luscious Liz.

Tip, who starred in 2006’s ATL alongside Ross’ son Evan Ross, revealed that it was Evan’s mother who told him to keep his personal life private. “One thing Diana Ross told me, she said you’ve got to keep something to yourself,” he shared. “I just feel like that’s something private, that’s between us.”

One thing T.I. has no problem discussing is his new album King Uncaged, which has been moved from August to a September 28 release date.
