T.I. Calls His Wife Twice a Day From Prison
T.I. may be locked up but that’s not stopping him from communicating with his lady love, Tameka ‘Tiny‘ Cottle. According to Tiny, the newlyweds keep in touch with one another ever day via email and telephone. “He called me checking in,” she told Atlanta radio station V103. “He told me to tell you thank you and everybody ‘thank you.” I told him I was coming up here so he wanted me to tell everybody thank you for going out to buy [his new album, 'No Mercy'] and getting in and supporting him. He had to make other calls so he had to jump off with me really quick.”
Tiny also said that she gets a phone call from Tip twice a day, alongside sending emails, which is the extent of his access to the web. “He can’t, like, go on the internet and look at websites like that,” she explained. “He can only email people on his list.”
As previously reported the 29-year-old is serving another one-year sentence for violating his probation after being caught with drugs back in September. In a candid letter to his fans via his website, T.I. expressed his frustration behind his recurring prison bids, vowing to make a change in his actions. This time last year the father of six was released from the same Arkansas prison where he is currently detained, and transferred to an Atlanta half-way house, before getting busted with ecstasy pills while driving in Hollywood with Tiny. The two were both taken into custody but later released on bail. For her part in the ordeal, Tiny has been slapped with drug possession charges. If convicted she could face up to a year in jail.
T.I.’s ‘No Mercy’ hit stores Dec. 7. A video for the title-track surfaced earlier this week on MTV2.
