T.I.’s Girl, Lil Wayne’s Ex Star In ‘Tiny & Toya’ Reality Show

Former Xscape singer Tameka “Tiny” Cottle and Lil’ Wayne’s ex-wife Antonia “Toya” Carter are set to star in a new BET reality series, the network announced this week.

 

Tiny and Toya will chronicle the two women defining their purpose and building a brighter future for themselves.

 

Based in Atlanta, the new show follows the lives of these two young women, who in addition to co-parenting two of Hip-Hop’s biggest stars, also happen to be best friends.

 

Tiny and Toya will follow the two as they strive “to find inner-strength, peace and purpose,” a description of the show says.

 

Both women are also seeking to be defined outside of the shadow of the men in their lives.

 

Despite her success with 90s R&B group Xscape and being a Grammy and ASCAP Award winning songwriter, Tiny is best known for her ongoing long-term relationship with rapper T.I.

 

The two have two sons together, the oldest of which is now four.

 

The couple made headlines yesterday (May 27) when, on the day after T.I. started his jail sentence on federal gun charges, a source close to the family announced that they were in fact married.

 

However, today (May 28), T.I.’s publicist Sydney Margetson dismissed the reports as “absolutely not true.”

 

Toya Carter is the mother of Lil’ Wayne’s eldest Reginae Carter.

 

Five years after the birth of their daughter, Wayne and Toya got married on Valentine’s Day 2004.

 

However, they divorced two years later.

 

A year later, in 2007, Toya made headlines when she spoke to Vibe Magazine about the relationship after her ex had denied in interviews that they were ever in love.

 

The first Tiny and Toya 30-minute episode will debut at 10pm on June 30.
