Tameka “Tiny” Cottle, who has been married to the rapper for nearly eight years, celebrated her 43rd birthday Saturday, and she was showered with gifts from her husband. 

The Xscape member and reality star took to Instagram to show off a black convertible ride loaded with shopping bags from Louboutin.

“Thank you so much Mr. Harris @troubleman31 for showing up on MY ACTUAL birthday & showing out! I really really love this car & all the other nice gifts & I just wanted to tell u how thankful I am,” she wrote in the caption. 

In December 2017, Tiny reportedly filed for divorce. A hearing was scheduled for March 2017, according to People. However, it was removed from the calendar once court officials learned T.I. had never been served with divorce papers.

For months, the two have been spotted together at several public events and family outings. They have three children together, including a two-year-old daughter.
