Fresh off an appearance at the BET Hip-Hop Awards, TV star Tameka “Tiny” Cottle recently gave an update of her husband’s current condition and the tragic violence that’s hit her inner circle.
Earlier this month, Tiny’s former Xscape bandmate and Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burrus lost her fiancée Ashley “AJ” Jewell. His death was the result of injuries sustained in a fight at an Atlanta strip club.
Coupled with the brutal shooting death of former boxing champion Vernon Forrest in July, Cottle revealed that T.I. urges her to remain close to home to prevent becoming a target.
“I talk to him about a little of everything, just things going on. He hears things and we talk about it,” Tiny explained to AllHipHop.com. “He wants me to stay out the way, me being out of harm’s way. I know it’s a lot of crazy things going on so I try to stay in as much as possible because I don’t have him here. So I come out only when it’s necessary. I stay out the way. But he even said it was a terrible situation that AJ had to lose his life like that. Him not knowing the situation and what’s going on he really can’t speak on it.”
