T.I. married Tameka "Tiny" Cottle late last month, and they celebrated in three cities (Las Vegas, Miami and Atlanta) with family and friends, including Usher, Bow Wow and Nelly. Tip hasn't commented publicly about his nuptials, and this weekend at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills, during a press event for his upcoming film "Takers," the King of the South explained his silence.
"You know me, man. I try to keep everything personal, personal," Tip said. "I will say this: I'm happy."
Not only is the Bankhead, Georgia, music icon overjoyed about his personal life, but his career's not too shabby either. His seventh album, King Uncaged, comes out in September, and "Takers," which he starred in and produced, hits theaters August 27.
"I'm happy to be at a place where I can present this film to the world," he told MTV News. "[I'm happy to be] working hard on this album, doing everything I can to continue to add on to the good."
In the film, Tip plays the suave-but-deadly Delonte "Ghost" Rivers, a bank robber who helps orchestrate an elaborate heist not too far after a long prison bid.
"I wanted to play a more interesting, challenged villain," Tip said. "I think Ghost, in the end, is the villain, but initially he's the guy you feel sorry for. Like, 'Why you doing Ghost like that?' He got shot; he went and did time. Now they don't want to do his job. Why not? Later you find out why. He's a bit of a complex character."
