The late legend's estate won millions of dollars after alleging the songsmiths stole their single from Marvin's Got To Give It Up.

Prior to the official statement, stories about the rapper's alleged cheating surfaced online. The reports went on to describe how Tameka intended to be a single parent to their 4-month-old and six other children.
Debunking the salacious rumors, the couple's rep stated:
"Tiny has read so much about her marriage in the past few weeks that it's time to set the record straight and really educate everyone on the facts. Certain blogs have 'reported' that she's going to be a single mom, she's getting a divorce, she has a new residence and everything in between. On behalf of Mrs. Harris, this is the truth – Tameka and TI are good. They love each other and they have a beautiful family with seven amazing children. For them, it will always be family over everything."
Phew! We're glad there's no truth to the tabloid reports!
Stay strong, you two!
