Over the weekend, T.I. was caught briefly in the rumor mill that was quickly squashed. Apparently, the gossip blogs posted a photo of Tip and a beautiful woman whom they reported was his alleged sidepiece at an NFL function. But this was not the case.

Although T.I.’s rep clarified the situation when it happened, the Atlanta rapper himself jumped on his Instagram account to officially put the rumors to bed. In the photo above, you can see Terrence J, Trae the Truth (who is now Vice-President of Grand Hustle Records), Angela Yee, T.I. and Rap-A-Lot founder J. Prince.

But the caption really tells the story. “I was telling Angela Yee watch where she stand cause anybody I stand next to ends up being my side piece...Y’all lame as hell,” he wrote.

Again, T.I. is referring to the photo down below where he's standing next to a gorgeous woman. Many gossip blogs speculated that she was Tip's sidepiece, but they were wrong. The woman beside him is Kristen Ingram, the Director of Affiliate Marketing at NFL Network.

Hopefully, this clears everything up and people can now move on with their lives.
