T.I. and Tiny just pulled a “Paris.”
The honeymoon is over for newlywest rapper/actor T.I. and his wife — ex-R&B girl bander Tameka Cottle. The Atlanta couple were arrested in West Hollywood overnight on drug charges, according to Los Angeles Sheriff’s Deputy Mark Pope.
LAPD officials say the arrests for possession of a controlled substance came late Wednesday night during a traffic stop. Officers pulled the pair over on Hollywood’s glitzy Sunshine Blvd. after they smelled what they thought was marijuana wafting from their Maybach. T.I. — whose real name is Clifford Harris Jr — and Cottle, a 36-year-old mother of three, were immediately booked at the West Hollywood Sheriff’s Station.
Bail has been set at $10,000.
The arrest came at the end of what had been a blissful few weeks for one of hip-hop’s royal couples. After a more than seven year courtship that included a son, a miscarriage, and a reality show on BET, Tiny and T.I. tied the knot in a lavish ceremony in Miami earlier this summer.
In March, T.I. — who joins Idris Elba in last weekend’s box office winner Takers — was released from a federal prison in Arkansas after serving several months for illegal firearms possession and possessing a gun as a convicted felon.
