Speculation about T.I. and Tiny's parenting has resurfaced after the rapper appeared to engage in a heated altercation with his 19-year-old son, King Harris, at an Atlanta Falcons game, per Atlanta Black Star.
On Sunday (November 26), footage circulated on social media showed King and his parents disputing over his upbringing at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.
King, an aspiring hip-hop artist, claimed that he didn't grow up with a silver spoon in his mouth but instead was raised by the streets outside of his parent's gated community.
The 19-year-old previously noted that he was raised by his grandmother and was only with his parents during filming for their reality show, T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle. At one point during Sunday's exchange, Tiny appeared to confirm King's claim, saying he would cry to be with his grandmother as a child.
Tiny also appeared to taunt King for using a pacifier until he was 12 years old. The joking led to an altercation between T.I. and King that went viral online. The footage led to speculation resurfacing over the couple's family life.
Social media users pointed out that King's older sisters, Zonnique Pullins and Deyjah Harris, have previously been critical of aspects of their childhood. In February, Zonnique, 27, said she felt abandoned by her mother at times.
“What hurt me is, honestly, my mom being with Tip all the time. Like, even now, today that’s how it is. They’re just tied to the hip," Zonnique said in an interview.
In September, Deyjah also seemed to hint at a fractured relationship with her parents.
“Having a parent that always thinks they’re right is exhausting lmaooo," she tweeted.
