Petty or Nah? Tiny Harris Makes It Clear She Was Famous Long Before T.I.
Tameka "Tiny" Harris, who recently reunited with her girl group Xscape, is clapping back at critics claiming her estranged husband T.I. helped make her famous.

The pint-sized singer appeared to respond to the remarks in a post on Instagram.

Tiny was already famous before she even started dating Tip and some even claim she helped him further his rap career. 

Harris took to social media to share a photo that appeared to address the rumors. 

She posted a side-by-side photo of her hairstyle, writing in the caption, "It's crazy how things repeats themselves ...my hair in the like 95 same 2017 moral of the story... I been doing this [expletive] 😏 on my own 🌊💨💨."

Her fans picked up on the shade thrown at her estranged husband and weighed in with their thoughts in the comments section:

User brittanynichelle_loveless wrote, "That part. Its like you upgrade a [expletive] and they act like you shouldn't have yo feet kicked up somewhere. You a prize @majorgirl. You helped him get to where he is. No matter [expletive] he says."

Follower elizabeth_is_who_i_am commented, "@majorgirl yes you have! And don't allow yourself to think that you needed help from anyone! You have always been on the grind and earned your stripes in the game! much love tameka! keep your chin up and them heels 6 inches high... 😊😊😚"

Some fans of the couple appeared to believe that Tiny was simply the woman married to rapper T.I..However, Harris was famous long before her marriage to Tip. Tiny was a member of the multi-platinum R&B vocal group Xscape and won a Grammy Award for her writing contributions on the TLC hit song "No Scrubs". 

Tiny's other accomplishments include an American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers award in the R&B and Pop Music categories for "No Scrubs", as well as the ASCAP Rap Award for her work on the Sporty Thievz track "No Pigeons". Cottle has also worked with T.I., 8Ball & MJG, Lil' Kim and Bow Wow.

Back in December when Tiny originally filed for divorce, a fan claimed the singer would be nothing without Tip. Harris clapped back by writing, "Sorry but T.I. didn't make me I was already made when I met him. You're clearly too young to know that. But you should do your homework on me first before you come talking [expletive]. Google me babe...been lit since 93."

Harris is currently gearing up for her reunion tour with Xscape, also set to star with the ladies of the group on a reality show.
Tiny is reportedly moving forward in her divorce with T.I., after the couple appeared to reconcile last month. Harris admitted they were off-and-on nearly weekly, but admitted there is still a lot of love between them. 

Tiny and T.I. have been together since 2000 and they married in Miami Beach, Florida in 2010. They have two sons together - King Harris (born August 25, 2004), Major Philant Harris (born May 16, 2008) and a daughter, Heiress Diana Harris (born March 2016). Their daughter Leyah Amore Harris was stillborn on March 22, 2007, six months into her pregnancy. Tiny also has an adult daughter, Zonnique Pullins, from her previous relationship with Zonnie "Zeboe" Pullins. Tiny is also stepmom to Tip's children from previous relationships - stepsons Messiah Ya'Majesty (born 2000) and Domani Uriah (born 2001), and stepdaughter Deyjah Imani Harris (born 2001).

Insiders claim that Tiny and Tip are giving it their all to remain amicable during the divorce for the sake of their children.
