T.I. and his wife discuss previous issues in their marriage on the next episode of “Red Table Talk” with Jada Pinkett-Smith. The clip was shared on Instagram for the world to see Tiny explain that she has never stepped out on their marriage for another relationship.

Tiny got a chance to discuss how their marriage had a shift after T.I. went to jail for one year in 2010 and then later served 11 months for a probation violation.

“Once I got on my own two feet, I felt like I should have a voice, too, and that voice was a little different from what he was used to,” Tiny explained. “So that, to me, is what caused the issue. It wasn’t because I’m just being outlandishly disrespectful.”

She added: “If you recall, you could not move, you could not go anywhere, I was still in the house like I was on probation doing all the things. But because I had a voice that was not so timid — to me, this is my outlook on it — I feel like he felt like, ‘This is not the woman I left and this is not what I want. I want someone that, if I tell her this, she’s gonna listen and she’s gonna do this the way I want her to do it.’”
