It’s official! Clifford “T.I.” Harris Jr. married longtime girlfriend Tameka “Tiny” Cottle in a secret ceremony at a Miami beach courthouse earlier today, according to TMZ.
The couple has reportedly been dating since 2001 and is raising six kids together. When asked by Rap-Up in a previous interview whether Tiny, 35, was his best friend, Tip said, “Yeah, absolutely.”
The Atlanta rapper, 29, said he wanted to keep the wedding private when it did happen. “We talked about wanting it to be our event instead of it being everyone else’s event, so we just keep it to ourselves whatever we do.”
While they already have a full household, T.I. would be happy to welcome more children into his big family. “I’ll have as many kids as I can,” he said.
Their marriage license obtained in Miami-Dade County can be seen below.
UPDATE: The couple is planning a three-city celebration for their nuptials. They will wed again Saturday on a small private island near Miami, according to UsMagazine.com. They will then return to Atlanta for a reception Saturday afternoon, before heading to Las Vegas where the party will continue.
