T.I. and Tiny’s “Family Hustle” Reality Show Gets Canceled
(AllHipHop News) It was reported in January that executives at U.S. network VH1 were on the brink of cancelling the estranged couple’s reality TV series “T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle” after its fifth season ended last year, but producers had managed to convince them to air one more series.
Now, VH1 bosses have now confirmed the upcoming sixth season will be the last in the series.
“VH1 is incredibly proud of this long running series and our partnership with Tip and Tameka,” said Nina L. Diaz, executive vice president at VH1 and MTV, in a statement.
“For six years, they have opened their home and shared countless family moments with us. Reaching 100 episodes is a milestone and we couldn’t be more excited to bring viewers the highly anticipated final season.”
TMZ.com reported in January that the series would document their divorce after Tiny filed paperwork to end their six-year marriage in December of 2016 but it has since been revealed their divorce proceedings are on hold because she failed to formally notify the 36-year-old rapper of the legal action.
The case was due to be heard at a court in Georgia this month but it has been shelved by authorities until the former Xscape singer provides proof she served him with divorce papers.
The TV series, which debuted in 2011, also documents the estranged couple’s efforts to co-parent their sons King, 12, Major Philant, eight, and daughter Heiress, who celebrates her first birthday later this month.
T.I., real name Clifford Harris Jr, is also father to three children from a previous relationship, while Tiny is mother to Zonnique Pullins from a prior romance.
Since the divorce news, the couple, who began dating in 2001, have remained on amicable terms and have been spotted on together on several occasions, including Valentine’s Day.
