T.I.’s wife, Tameka “Tiny” Harris , may have gotten the MC into some more trouble during her recent jail visit, but she’s managed to avoid a harsh penalty for the last time the two misbehaved together.
A spokesperson for the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office confirmed to MTV News that a judge dismissed a misdemeanor drug possession charge against the songstress stemming from a September drug arrest on Thursday (January 6) after Harris provided evidence that she had completed a drug diversion program in Georgia.
Harris was charged with a single count of misdemeanor drug possession in October, one month after she and her chart-topping spouse were arrested in Los Angeles after authorities found Ecstasy after pulling the pair over. The incident led to T.I. getting hauled back to jail in November for probation violation, months after he wrapped up a prison bid for a felony gun case.
The former Xscape singer has sidestepped further legal trouble just days after Tip was reprimanded and moved to a “special housing unit” after getting “frisky” with his longtime love during a visit.
T.I. has been keeping in touch with fans from prison through letters, thanking followers for their support and maintaining that he’s ready to turn over a new leaf during his latest jail stint.
“It’s a relief to know that there still are people who see a man with a life and not just another headline in the news,” he said in a letter in December. “Most of you sound very concerned and optimistic at the same time about my situation. Let me assure you all that I am definitely keeping my head up. I don’t consider myself done by far. Also many of you are convinced as I am that God has a plan for me that he’s preparing me for. How do you tell God Almighty that all you wanna do is LIVE LIFE ??? What if all you wanna do is be a father to your kids, a husband to your wife, and son to your mother while providing insightful motivation through music and lending a helping hand when possible to those who need it most. Well guys…That’s the topic of discussion between me and the MOST HIGH at the moment. I’ll keep you posted on how it turns out.”
