T.I.’s jailhouse visit with Tiny leads to trouble, but Tiny’s drug case dismissed

Troubled rapper T.I. is in more trouble. This time the charge is something like Romance in the First Degree.

Imprisoned in Arkansas after being busted with drugs in Hollywood while on parole for a weapons charge, the artist known in legal circles as Clifford Harris received a visit from his wife, Tameka “Tiny” Cottle.

That wasn’t the problem. The visit went well. Maybe a little too well.

T.I. and Tiny apparently got carried away -“frisky” is the word TMZ used while All Hip Hop reports it was a “sexual act” that got the two busted – and now T.I. is in a more secure holding area, with less freedom.

Meanwhile on Thursday afternoon, TMZ reported that the drug case against Tiny has been dismissed.

“The L.A. County District Attorney’s office tells TMZ the case was dropped because Tiny completed 24 sessions of a certified drug diversion program in Georgia,” the site said.

For a feature called “The Buzz,” this is absolutely news “Kiljoy.” Give me a break. The Buzz is where readers will find the latest celebrity news. IT’S CALLED THE BUUZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.
And what picture would you propose to post “IamME?” The story is about these two “getting their freak on” in jail. I think it’s fitting. Keep up the good work Ms. Brett.

And he still hasn’t learned his lesson…she is the problem. He needs a woman that will stand behind him for all the right reasons. Moral of this story,seen by a lot of people who do things for all the wrong reasons; Stop doing things just for the kids, and don’t be co-dependant….

To all those saying “they are married do your thang” and all the other comments that is supporting their actions, you are wrong. It goes to show that T.I. have not changed nor learned his lesson. He cannot follow a simple rule nor control himself for 11 months. He disrespected himself and his wife by having her to do such an act at the prison. Once he gets out he will get locked up again because he is impulsive and stupid but for some reason you people hold him on a pedestal. The black community will not move foward if we don’t stop supporting stupidity and set higher standards for ourselves and our kids. Just because a person “got a little money” does not mean they are a good person or a good role model. I heard it on V103 this morning, that grew are such hypocrites. One minutee Frankie wants to preach to you, the next him and Wanda and now El Duncan are acting like buffons and promoting nonsense that they wouldn’t let their own kids listen to. There is no such thing as a black owned radio or TV station anymore except maybe that Ophra Network. bet and those radio stations are owned by corperate america and the first thing they did was fire tavis Smiley, Bev Smith, Ed Gordon and the ended Video Soul with Donnie Simpson and Sherry Carter and real hip hop show like MTV Raps and In the Basement and only flood the youths minds with trash on 106 and Park and all those stupid reality shows, “Come On Man”. Like Spike Lee said at the end of “Do The Right thing”. “WAKE UP”.

Oh, good-freakin’-grief!!!! In jailhouse visits, “frisky” can be described as holding hands, or a quick kiss on the lips! It is not like they had a mini-conjugal visit in the visiting area — the guards wouldn’t let that happen. During prison visits, the prisoner must sit with his hands on the table, at all times, and no physical contact is permitted. So, if TI gave his wife a hug or a kiss, he would be in violation of the rules and, thus, punished for being “frisky.” If I were TI, it would be a violation I’d be willing to make. No biggie, people.

Having a loved in Federal Bureau of Prisons (FOB)…I can not believe that she would make his time there harder by doing that…now he can possibly be moved, privilidges taken away, and overall the hassle from guards and other inmates..In their relationship it is not always about being a “down azz wife” but being a responsible woman and standing by your man and helping him to come home. Prayers go out to them for better judgement..but who are we to judge!! bottom line if we dont care dont read it or listen…I read, heard and now Im done with. ♥

@ Stacie is correct. The media, and some of you morons are making to much of this. I seriously doubt that TI and Tiny did anything more than hug or kiss. There is NO WAY any other type of physical contact would have been allowed in a prison public visiting area. The guards don’t play that. TMZ and other trashy sites are playing this up to be more than it is. Blech!

@ Stacie the simple rule is A Hug and Kiss at the begining and a hug and kiss at the end of visitation, that is all the contact you are allowed. Hands should be kept in sight not under the table. In Iraq and Afghanistan if a husband and wife are stationed at the same base it is unlawful for them to have sexual contact. Most follow that rule and spend time talking and getting reacquainted. They are away from the kids and can get some real quality time while off duty. I served with a few married couples that did just that. A rule is a rule, T.I. broke that one and others in society. After getting out of prison he thought it was cool to ride around LA and make an illegal U Turn while having drugs in the car. he thought it was cool to break the law by getting those illegal weapons, He thought It was cool to be a drug dealer. When is enough is enough. He obviously think he is above the laws and rules and regulations. He must think he is special because people like you keep supporting his foolishness and telling him he is special. I am not hating ‘Just Keeping It 100″. Thats the BIGGIE.

TI is running out of time. When he gets out he will be watched. How long before he violates probation. Any rapper with real potential unrealized. He needs a lady with bit more class. She will help him in his own downfall. I liked his music but can’t support it. Where are the conscious rapper/?

Why does the AJC open ANY stories (negative or otherwise) about African American? Really? It is just an opportunity for the myriad of cowardly racists, who hide behind the anonymity of their keyboards to come on an make ignorant racist comments! You just know that these very same people are smiling and yukking it up with their black colleagues and co-workers, while secretly coming on this board and spewing hate. Sad, really.

So what? That is their business. They are the ones going through this, not any of us. Leave them alone. He broke a rule & he pays the price for it. She stands by him through whatever – she’s a ride or die chick. Whatever they have going on, it seems to work for them in their worlds – only God can judge them. Was it stupid? No, more like poor judgment on their part, but none of us are perfect & we all make mistakes. I don’t think this should have been reported to the media at all. Please leave them alone already!

Trash and Trashy but our so called black leaders like Andy Young want to call them role models and model citizens when will the black community wake up and stop looking at the TI’s, Lil Waynes and atheletes as role models. I remember in the 70’s it was an embarrasment to go to jail now it is earning your street cred.

Well he is in prison, which is not supposed to be an enjoyable experience. I’m not sure why any of you think the prison owes it to a convicted felon to let him have sex with his wife.

Vince- he’s not in jail for being a former Grammy Winner he’s in jail for “being busted with drugs in Hollywood while on parole for a weapons charge”. They don’t describe Charles Manson as a “former songwriter and muscician”.

Stacie- sounds like you are a little too familiar with the way jailhouse visits work. Might want to rethink who you surround yourself with. Also, I don’t know about the rest of you but I would not describe holding hands as “frisky”.
