Wire Talk: T.I. & Tiny Heading to Jail?

Rumor has it that Rapper Clifford “T.I.” Harris is going back to Jail to serve three years & that his wife, Tameka “Tiny” Cottle will be doing a year. According to a statement released by Atlanta U.S. Attorney Sally Yates, the self proclaimed “King Of The South,” could be going back to the place he was in just a couple of months ago.

U.S. Attorney Sally Yates told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution in a statement released Friday:

“We are very disappointed in Mr. Harris’ recent conduct, we will make our sentencing recommendation at the revocation hearing.”

The rapper and his wife, Tameka “Tiny” Cottle could face up to a year in California state prison, after they were found with ecstasy in West Hollywood on September 1st.

To make matters worse, not only did T.I. fail a drug test when traces of codeine were found in his system, but he was also traveling with a convicted felon named Cortez “C-Rod” Thomas.

All infractions are violations of the terms of T.I.‘s three-year probation for attempting to purchase machine guns and silencers just before the BET Hip-HopAwards in October of 2007.

This is what MediaTakeOut.com stated:

MediaTakeOut.com has some SAD NEWS to report. While nothing is set in stone a person close to Tiny told us that both SHE and her new husband TI are making preparations to GO TO JAIL . . . for an EXTENDED TIME!!!


The insider explained, “At first I though they were just making plans ‘in case’ they both [got locked up]. But no, they’re acting like they’re both going away.” The tipster continued, “Tiny’s already got a drug possession case in Georgia, and the lawyers told her that they hand out jail time in LA like it’s nothing, so she’s preparing herself.”


Who gets custody of the children if and when the couple get LOCKED UP. The insider explains, “Tiny’s mom.”


This is such a sad story. We don’t even feel sorry for TI or Tiny, it’s the kids who will be

WITHOUT parents for months and possibly years that we feel bad for.

T.I. faces possible prison time for drug arrest

Grammy-winning rapper T.I. is headed back to Atlanta and may soon be ordered to face the federal judge who signed off on an extraordinary deal that shaved years off a potential prison term.

T.I.’s arrest Wednesday night in Los Angeles for suspicion of possession of methamphetamine could trigger a motion by his probation officer. The officer could ask U.S. District Judge Charles Pannell Jr. to revoke some of the remaining probation on T.I.’s federal sentence stemming from his arrest on gun charges three years ago. T.I’s probation expires in 2013.

“T.I. is going to be back on his way to Atlanta in the next 24 hours,” Don Samuel, one of T.I.’s lawyers, said Thursday. “It’s almost certain he’ll end up appearing before the court here. But without knowing all the facts, it’s premature to speculate what the court is likely to do.”

Ed Garland, another member of T.I.’s legal team, said the rapper quickly notified the U.S. Probation Office of his arrest, as the conditions of his probation require. The probation officer has instructed T.I. to report to him when the rapper returns to Atlanta, Garland said.

During T.I.’s March 2007 sentencing hearing, the rapper told Pannell he was sorry for what had happened and vowed to become a changed man. The first-of-its-kind plea deal had required T.I., before going to prison, to perform 1,000 hours of community service telling kids and fans across the country not to emulate his old lifestyle of drugs, guns, gangs and violence.

In March, T.I. was released after serving three months in an Atlanta halfway house. This followed a seven-month term in an Arkansas prison.

Wednesday night, 29-year-old T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris Jr., and his wife, Tameka “Tiny” Cottle, were arrested in West Hollywood during a traffic stop.

“Deputies smelled a strong odor of marijuana emitting from the vehicle,” the Los Angeles sheriff’s department said. “A narcotics investigation ensued” and resulted in the arrests.

T.I. and his wife were released from jail at about 4 a.m. Thursday after each posted $10,000 bail.

T.I. was arrested in October 2007 by federal undercover agents in a Midtown parking lot trying to buy machine guns, ammunition and silencers. But his legal team brokered the extraordinary plea deal with then-U.S. Attorney David Nahmias, who is now a justice on the Georgia Supreme Court. At the time, the plea deal came under sharp criticism as an example of celebrity justice.

During T.I.’s sentencing hearing, Andrew Young, the former U.N. ambassador, Atlanta mayor and civil rights leader, told Pannell he wholeheartedly endorsed the deal. Young, who officiated the recent wedding between T.I. and Cottle, said he and the rapper had forged a close relationship. Young said T.I.’s anti-drug and anti-violence message had reached legions of fans.

Pannell told T.I. he thought the “experiment” had turned out well. But he also told T.I. if he had failed during his time out on community service, “I would have simply sent you to prison.”

The question now will be whether Pannell will do that if T.I. is found to have violated his probation.

The terms of T.I.’s probation say he cannot possess or use any narcotic or controlled substance or frequent places where drugs are “illegally sold, used, distributed or administered.” He also cannot associate with anyone engaged in criminal activity, the terms of his sentence dictate.

Atlanta lawyer Tim Saviello, a former federal defender, said T.I.’s probation officer has two choices. First, he can ask T.I. to agree to modify the terms of his probation by requiring him to take drug counseling, such as attending Narcotics Anonymous classes. He may also be required to take more frequent drug tests. Pannell would have to sign off on such an arrangement.

This is what typically happens in a run-of-the-mill case in which a probationer tests positive for drugs or is found to possess a small quantity of marijuana, Saviello said. “But this is not your run-of-the-mill case,” he added.

The probation officer also has the option of filing a notice to revoke some or all of T.I.’s probation, which expires in 2013. This will require a court hearing, with Pannell deciding on whether to send the rapper to prison.

“It seems unfortunate T.I. would put himself in that situation,” Saviello said. “Certainly it’s unfortunate for him considering the nature of the deal he got.”

T.I. has a key role in the current top box office movie “Takers,” an action film about an armored truck robbery that goes bad. It was released last week and topped the box-office chart.

The multi-platinum rapper, who is known as the “King of the South,” has been working on a new album, “King Uncaged,” which may be released this year.

T.I. & Tiny Arrested for Drug Possession

T.I.

T.I. has had a run-in with the law once again. The King of the South and his wife Tameka “Tiny” Cottle have been arrested for alleged possession of a controlled substance.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ that L.A. County Sheriff’s deputies pulled over Tip and Tiny for making an illegal U-turn while they were driving in a Maybach on Sunset Boulevard around 10:30 p.m. on Wednesday (Sept. 1). After officers smelled marijuana in the vehicle, the couple was taken into custody in West Hollywood, Calif. They remained in custody as of press time and are scheduled to make an appearance at the Beverly Hills Municipal Court on Friday. Bail was set at $10,000.

Police stated that they discovered a controlled substance in the car, which, under California law, constitutes methamphetamines, ecstasy, and a form of codeine used in Sizzurp. Inside of T.I. and Tiny’s car were Styrofoam cups, the cup of choice for those who drink the popular Southern concoction, but cops are now claiming that they may have found X pills in the whip.

The Atlanta MC is currently on probation after pleading guilty to weapons charges. He served seven months behind bars at a Federal Correction Institution in Arkansas last year.

T.I. and Tiny were married on July 30 and the rapper-turned-actor is fresh off the success of his film Takers, which debuted at No. 1 over the weekend.

Music News: Ciara & Keri Hilson Beefing?

Fans of both Ciara and Keri Hilson are all too familiar with the artists’ feud, which seemingly began through songs that featured the singers taking lyrical jabs at one another. But the R&B powerhouses reportedly stepped out from behind the mics recently and experienced a heated exchange. During Power 105.1’s “Power Live” concert in New York this past weekend, Ciara and Keri may have come face-to-face, causing verbal blows to follow.

The Atlanta songstresses were both scheduled to perform at the concert, which featured such acts as J. Cole, Diddy-Dirty Money, Fat Joe, and Rick Ross. According to the New York Daily News’ Gatecrasher gossip column, Hilson backed out of her time slot after she and the “Ride” singer were involved in a minor tiff backstage.

Sources for the newspaper then changed their stories when both artists’ publicists stepped in to do damage control. Reps for Hilson claim the ATL native wasn’t even present at the concert. Unfortunately, it seems one of the camps is withholding information. A set list sent to the publication by the publicity firm handling the “Power Live” event had Keri Hilson scheduled to perform from 8:55 p.m. to 9:15 p.m. and Ciara to go onstage from 10:05 p.m. to 10:35 p.m.

Keri has denied beef with Ciara in a previous radio interview. When asked by Rap-Up TV in May whether her song “Basic Instinct (U Got Me)” was taking shots at her peer, Ciara simply responded, “That record right there is a song that I dedicated to my haters, and I also dedicate it to my fans though.”

UPDATE: Organizers for “Power Live” have released a statement addressing Keri Hilson’s absence from the show.

Keri Hilson had been booked to perform at the Power Live Show On NYC’s Governor’s Island Sunday, August 22nd but was unable to perform due to matters out of her own control. Hilson, a professional who has always been a pleasure to work with, and her management, gave Power Live fair warning that she would be unable to perform. Power Live looks forward to having Keri Hilson on our bill at future events. Any statements or stories made toward issues backstage with any of our performers are false and without merit.

According to Pop On The Pop we don’t need to worry about her new relationship, Matt’s agent Dave Stewart says he was never abusive to Felisha Terrell.

“Matt dated Felisha about two years ago and decided to end their relationship. She chose to file a complaint and shortly thereafter, on her own accord, decided to drop it based on the fact that the statements made within were false. She has very recently said that she has no issue whatsoever with Matt and that she and Matt consider this to be a non-issue.”

A representative for Felisha also cleared the air by saying during the relationship “there was a restraining order filed by Felisha but it had nothing to do with domestic violence and to be clear Matt was NEVER physically abusive to Felisha, nor did she fear for her life. The restraining order was subsequently vacated.”

“I’m a huge fan of Rihanna, but I’m not going to lie when I heard about her new man “Matt Kemp” possibly being abusive, I was a bit worried for her. She really doesn’t need another one of these episodes in her life. She’s young and deserves to be happy. She’s back and ready to blow us all away with her beautiful music. Keep up the good work and I wish her the best in everything she does.”

Rihanna May Be Dating Another Violent Abuser…

Rihanna has been dating LA Dodgers player Matt Kemp for around one month. The couple have been playing grab-ass on rented yatchs, and playing coy with the media. According to new reports, Kemp may have just as nasty a temper as Chris Brown.

Music News: Kanye West Does It Again!


The outspoken rapper Kanye West interrupted Taylor Swift‘s acceptance speech for Best Female Video at MTV’s 2009 Video Music Awards, declaring Beyonce‘s music video should have won the moon-man.

“Beyonce had the best video,” he said, taking the microphone from Swift.

Swift, looking taken aback, left the stage following West‘s outburst.

I think Kanye really over-stepped his boundaries as an artist. What he did was not cool one bit. It was rude and very unacceptable. I feel that as an artist at his magnitude of stardom, should have had more respect for Taylor Swift and given her that chance to receive her award for a work well done.

I’m sure that if that if someone who have interrupted his acceptance speech and said that someone else deserved his award more than himself, he would not have been to thrilled.

According to sources, Kanye and Amber Rose were escorted out of the VMA‘s.

Since the incident, Kanye has than posted an apology on his blog by stating the following…

“What are some of your thoughts about what happened at the VMA’s?”
