Don't Ef With Tangy Talley!+T.I. Claps Back About Child Support Case+Boris & Ciara's Magazine Pics

​ ​ ​ ​
Ciara and Boris Kodjoe are looking hot in the new issues of Maxim and Uptown magazines, respectively: Both were shot by famed photographer Derek Blanks. A few days ago reports hit the net that Lashon Dixon, the mother of 2 of T.I.'s sons, was taking him back to court for more child support.  It was reported that T.I. was paying $2000/month for both children and clearly Lashonda couldn't make ends meet on that child support amount.  However, T.I. has come and cleared the air with some insight.  Apparently, this chick Lashon doesn't work at all and lives solely off the child support payments.  And in addition to the 2k/month, T.I.P. is paying for both sons' private schooling, insurance, clothes, food, extras, gifts, everything.  That 2k was going straight to Lashon only.   And now chick is demanding more.  Womp womp!  I see I need to start a Wack Ass Baby Mamas category.  Here's a snippet of T.I.'s statement: "A lot of deceiving information has been reported regarding my recent child support proceeding. It is unfortunate that the media has been used to manipulate the circumstances and distort the facts. Those that know me, all know that there is nothing more important to me than my children. I have always supported all of my children financially, emotionally, and spiritually. This has always been the case and I will continue to do so in the future as this is my responsibility as a parent. To clarify the recent reports, in addition to the $2000 per month I pay in cash to Lashon Dixon, the mother of my sons Domani and Messiah, I also pay for their private schooling, medical insurance, clothing, food, gifts, birthdays and extracurricular activities. Their extra-curricular activities have included football, basketball, baseball, acting lessons, summer camp, and any other activities that they express a desire to be involved in that will contribute to them leading balanced lives and developing into well rounded individuals. I have also made an attempt to help Lashon with additional payments that have included a down payment to purchase her home, purchase of an automobile for her transportation and other financial obligations. These expenses are documented and are far in excess of the $2000 cash payment that is being paid direct to Lashon. She has chosen not to work and to live 100% from her child support receipts. This is the reason for her difficulties in making ends meet for herself.

When will baby mamas understand that child support is not shopping money for their asses? I just don't get it. More when you read the rest... Tangy T. Talley is NOT trying to play with y'all.  Somebody sprayed champagne all over his outfit while he was at a Fashion Week show last week and dude flipped out on the divo (yes, divo) Madea tip: ANDRE Leon Talley, the 6-foot-8 Vogue icon, cuts a flamboyant figure even when he's calm. Imagine when he's frantic. Talley was early for the Stephen Burroughs fashion show on Friday and sitting in the vestibule of the designer's West 38th Street showroom when a man opened a bottle of Piper-Heidsieck champagne and it sprayed all over Talley. The drenched fashionista screamed, "Look what you've done! I've got to wear these clothes all day!" And when the clumsy sprayer tried to towel him off, Talley yelled, "Get your hands off me!"

I wonder if it was the same day he was rocking his open toed velvet slippers.  That could get real sticky.  I would have paid money to see this ish.

T.I. not only pays for the

T.I. not only pays for the child support, but he noted that he pays for their private schooling, medical insurance, clothing, food, gifts, birthdays and extracurricular activities. He pays enough. It's sad that some women think that they don't need to get a job. They are not together so it's not her option to just not work. Tiny is a different story because they are together. She can either work or not. Believe me, it is so hard to be a single parent and take care of kids. I have 2 kids and get nothing because their father passed away but you know what, I am doing well because I worked my ass off for it, so I wish I could get a extra $2000 a month!

Fed Up, You are 100%

Fed Up, You are 100% correct. All women with children should raise their children and not hand them off to someone else. The men are supposed to support their wife and child. What is wrong with that? God said for women to submit to their husbands and for the husbands to love their wives the way Jesus loved the church, for which he DIED. Wouldn't you treat your husband with the utmost love and respect if he treated you the Jesus loves us? Do any of you really believe that a babysitter will take care of your children the way you would? Do you think the babysitter checks your child's diaper on the hour? They wait until the diaper is SOAKED and SOILED before changing the child. Do you think they feed your child when he/she is hungry or on a schedule? How much do you pay your babysitter? $500 per week? How much do you need to be paid to stay at home with your own child? Animals don't have their litter(?) for another animal to raise. Why are we doing less than animals? I don't understand what we have become. A job is just a job when it comes to taking care of your child. When your child is 18 they are gone. Are you going to wish you worked more on your deathbed instead of having watched your child grow, take first steps, or speak their first words? Why is that bond not priceless? This is only for those who choose to work, not those that the husband has left or died. We can all do without the extras that are luxuries, our children cannot do without one parent that is always with them, watching them, and showing them their love. Aren't children priceless? Why do we treat them so badly?

I totally agree w you I

I totally agree w you I wonder if you have children Ms ybf (Natasha) as women we are so quick to jump on these n*&&@$ side. Just like w 50 cents babby momma, women are always doing these men so wrong(wtf) it is starting to look like alot of women are jealous they are not the baby mommas. I bet if they were they would knock down the door of the court trying to get some more money. So I wish women would stop chewing out all of these baby mommas and find them a rich man and get knocked so they can get some money and quit acying like these men are daddy of the year and the women are just out to get them. Black men especially are not doing the job they need to do as fathers they are sticking their d*^&s wherever and making babies that they are half ass taking care of, I love TI but i wonder how many football practices he makes it to or how many dr appt so how I feel is f*$% these crybaby a$$ N*$$%@.

[quote comment="205538"]To all that don't know all Lashon is doing is taking Tip back to court for modifications based on his current worth. he probably has been paying this amount for awhile and as we all know a person in that line of work's income changes year to year. She asked that the court take a look to make sure that her kids are getting the amount they are entitled to. i dont see whats so bad about that. And to all who say she should get a job, i ask does Tiny work? What is wrong with Lashon staying home to raise her children. i respect the fact that she is not demanding a certain amount but just that they take a look at it. Don't believe TIP's hype! 2000 cash for 2 kids when you going on daily shopping sprees worth 20,000. He thought he had a fool thats all. Which she is if she's not stacking and investing what she can with plans to own her own business some day. Majority of the girls on here dont even have kids so they would not understand. just because thay relationship has soured does not mean those children dont still deserve the best.Hell he can afford it and it won't hurt him.[/quote]

$2000 is not a lot of money.

$2000 is not a lot of money. What about mortgage. Due to the high profile nature of TI's job, his sons need a particularly secure environment. Ladies, think about it- if the situation was reversed and you made 10 mill a year.That is over $800,000 per month. These are your children- your flesh and blood. Increasing payments from a measly $1000 per child (plus school and health care) is the least that TI can do. He should definitely provide more than that.

I am educated and very

I am educated and very informed on the media. But you can't truly take care of the children without taking care of the mother. Two thousand dollars a month is not enough money to take care of T.I.'s kids when he is worth well over a few millions. He should get sole custody of the kids if he doesn't want to give her extra money. She doesn't have to get a job when she has two sons by T.I. Her job is to make sure those kids are raised the best way possible. You must be black because we are the only people that see things differently. Our black men expect black women to work to the end. Even when they can afford to take care of their families they still have a problem with it. White men and Latin men do not put as much pressure on their women about working as black men do. If all the women stayed at home and took care of thier families and the men went to work and provided for them, it would be a much better society. Kids are not getting the proper attention because both parents are distracted by having to work. I'm an old school chick and I think that working should be your choice if you are able to have someone to provide for you. As far as Tiny is concerned, she needs to go to work too. Don't think he won't treat Tiny the same way. And if Tiny was a real woman T.I would not go thru the BS that he does. Because a smart woman knows how to get in a man's ear and make him listen to what is right. Yes, he should increase her child support. Maybe not to 20,000 dollars but for crying out loud the woman needs more than 2,000 dollars for two kids!!
Fed Up's picture

That's where you are wrong.

That's where you are wrong. TI is not currently with nor is he attempting to be with his other baby momma so he is not obligated to take care of her. You wouldn't want your baby's father to house and support his other baby's mother. That will be just wrong and that comment you mad is just plane stupid. He is obligated to his children only and if and when he is done with Tiny he will do he the same. Take care of his children NOT HER! HIS MUSIC IS ONLY MUSIC...U NEED TO UNDERSTAND THAT ARTIST MAKE SONGS SO THEY CAN SELL. OVER 50% OF THE TIME THAT IS NOT THEIR LIFESTYLES THEY LIVE. GET EDUCATED ON THE MEDIA HYPE.

If T.I. can take care of Tiny

If T.I. can take care of Tiny unattractive self, he can take care of his other baby mama. Tiny is a baby mama too. She doesn't have to get a job, so Lashawn shouldn't be required to get one. T.I. is not married and he is definitely not making a positive impact on our society. I don't blame the chick for trying to get xtra because he might end up in jail again. I can't believe some of the comments on this site. You guys support a dude that makes a song "You can have what ever you like" for these tricks in the street. But his baby mama has to take him to court to live a better life style. Please, grow up Girls and Boys. Stop listening to the radio and think for your self!!!!! T.I. is a dumb trick!

Karma is a boomerang that

Karma is a boomerang that will bust you in the eye. BabyMomma will end up getting more money - really she will...but in the end the children are "knowing" their "worth" per their Momma. You have to know that this woman is talkin' about all this ish in front of the children. They will realize that their Momma sees them as a meal ticket/$$$. BTW: $2000 a month + all the other "dividends" and "side $$$" she was getting = up about $6,000+. She's gonna end up with less cash.... Watch.

[quote comment="205630"]When

[quote comment="205630"]When will women learn that having a baby will NOT keep a man if he's not interested, and child support payments are not a form of retribution! It's disgraceful! Use protection! Nine times out of ten, dudes are looking to have a good time . . . not create a damn family! Then chicks get mad when he ups and leaves them for someone else. So you get pregnant and then try to use the damn baby as a pawn for making him pay for your stupid a** mistake of getting pregnant thinking you could keep his ass. Get real, ladies. It's '08. If you going to do it, be smart. Every man you meet is not your husband, much less the person to be your child's father. So make him wrap it before he taps it, and we won't have these issues with people wanting to use child support to clap back at a dude. I am not hating on women or anything, but I've seen this ish way too often. I've had people tell me, "Well, it don't matter if he wants to be in his/her or life or not, cause I am taking his a** for child support. So, it don't matter. I'ma get my money." Ignorant ass shit. It takes two to make a baby, and it takes two to raise one. Stop the madness...for the kids' sake.[/quote] THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!! FINALLY SOMEONE WHO HAS SOME DAMN SENSE!!!!!!!!

Boris is So Damn Sexy! "TI

Boris is So Damn Sexy! "TI Case" The media do in fact blow everything out of proportion just to have a story. They want to see if someone break and give into the temptation to make an ass of their selves. I don't understand why everyone is trying to make it hard for these men who actually give a fuck. Coming from where I'm from I see no good baby daddy's as well as ignorant ass baby mommas. But this heffa is selfish, she only want more because she know that there is a probability that she can get more.TI is honestly doing more than enough if you really want to be technical.He is doing his part, although it takes two to raise children and obviously she feels as if she don't have to contribute. That's one definition of ignorant ass baby mommas. Lets be fore real now...What have she been doing if he was still that TIP hustling on the streets? Her ass would be working, though it sounds like she would be on welfare. I Applaud TI and everything that he is doing. Hopefully he will come to his senses while he is incarcerated and decide to gain custody of his children. He might ass well, then he wont have to deal with this ISH!!!

If it was, she would've taken his ass to court for child support since she tried to make it seem like that baby was his. In actuality, the baby was video director Benny Boom's.

[quote comment="205739"]My sister is 1 of T.I.'s sons' mom best friends. He does give her $2k a month, but that's all. The clothes, food, gifts, etc. are all at his home, not hers(which is bad b/c they live w/ her). He is a good dad to his sons, but for those saying he has them all the time, please tell how that's possible when he is always traveling for work and they are in school most of the year? I guess we should go with the pics he takes with them during the summer months... There are a lot of people saying $2k is plenty, but when you are making millions per year, that is bare minimum. She doesn't walk around in expensive clothes/jewelry, drive expensive cars...she wants the kids to live like his other children (and even one who is not his) who live with him lives, and I don't feel anything is wrong with that. I don't have any kids, but i'm sure it's hard for a her to look at how he throws money to Tiny(who from what I hear from HER "friends" shops like SHE'S making the money), while Lashon has to chase him down for money to buy her sons something simple like a bicycle. And for those who feel she should "get a job" to help should know that she was going to school, that's why she wasn't working. Such a shame, b/c they are both great parents. I hope all works out, b/c in the end it's the children that matter.[/quote] It is ridiculous that there are so many women ready to jump to a celebrity's defense when he's "taking care" of his kids. Taking care of kids and being a father is more than just providing money. But if your child's father is wealthy, then the laws of the land say your child deserves a portion of his income. If you go to court, instead of either having to plead for money for this, that and the other, you can get an assessment based on income that correlates to what both parties bring to the table. It is true when you think about it, for a multi-millionaire to be paying $2,000 a month for two sons is nothing. It may be better than what the average dude can do but T.I. is not making and average dude's money. If he taking care of other things, fine, HE SHOULD BE. He is the children's father. Even helping their mother get a house - after all, his children are living there, what's the problem? If you are a man that has multiple children, then that's what you take on. Yes, there are greedy baby mamas (and daddies) out here, but oftentimes, going to court means things are settled and no one has to argue about anything financial anymore. That's why Kim Porter went to court, and that's why when Misa, Diddy's other baby mother, found out what she was getting, as opposed to what Misa and Diddy unofficially agreed to, she went to court, too. It's all about getting what the law allows you to.

Hubby was paying child support for his daughter, mother decided to take him back for a modification (to get more money). He shows up with receipts for clothing, extracurricular activities, insurance, hell everything. The courts basically told him those were considered 'gifts' and could not be used for child support assessment. WTF?!?! Well, everything but the insurance, he did get credit for that. But God don't like ugly because ole' girl still got her face broke when they gave him credit for having another child (our child together) and then she started getting LESS than what she had before. HAHA!!!!![/quote] What a spiteful bitch you are. Your laughing because she tried to get more money and ended up getting less for his other child which is your childs sibling? SMH. Thats not funny and God sure dont like ugly and thats why your "hubby" is probably still freakin his other BM. HAHA to that wit ya childish ass![/quote] This is what most of these cases become, battles between the mom & dad, or the BM and the current. I agree a bit with Bianca, I don't know how much hubby was paying, but some clothes and hoop lessons are gifts. Child support is to make sure the children have a roof over there head and food on the table EVERYDAY!! These stupid ass stories make it hard on the real single mothers. For Wifey you shouldn't be too proud of this situation, if something happens to your marriage and you end up on the other side, Hubby and the new wifey might be trying to take your child so he can avoid child support. I don't know what type of man he is, but the type of woman he chose to have children with may be a clue, and the relationship he carries on with her is an even bigger clue. I don't know this woman and she may be a jealous bitch, but most mothers just want what they need to care for their children. And good fathers put the well being of their children, not pleasing the new wife infront of their checkbooks.[/quote] Never hon' will I be on the other side because 1) I know what I need to do to take care of mine (most women need to get a clue about this) and 2) I know for a fact what CHILD support means (most women have no clue about this either). **scanning my post** I don't quite recall saying he got custody to AVOID child support. We have custody because mom no longer wanted her and that makes my husband a bad father why? And if he was a dog ass dude he would have reciprocated the favor by going to get child support on her. But, no, my husband is a MAN and didn't do that. He figured he would give her time to get on her feet. 9 years later and that still hasn't happened. **still scanning my post to see if I said he did ANY of this to please me** Nope, don't see that either. Why is it so hard for some women to realize that there are some real men/fathers/husbands out here. Oh wait, because y'all have yet to meet one. So sorry for you but my life doesn't suck like that. Not once said it was a battle because it wasn't. To be honest all other things were paid for because she ASKED!! If it was a battle it would have been 'bytch I pay child support' but no the reply was 'how much'. My daugter is in her 3rd year of college and doing the damn thing. Y'all can't tell me NOTHING![/quote] And there it is...Do your thing, mami! Too many women get caught up in the bullshit and don't handle their business for their babies. Instead of worrying about what he is doing for his wife, she needs to take care of her seeds because when it comes down to it..yeah, men are the parents too but WE ARE MOTHERS!.....Real talk!

If you are a man with your

If you are a man with your children's best interest at heart, you are not going to sweat a few racks when you make plenty. As for the Babymomma going to the media is going to cause resentment from the father, so the approach is key to getting to most for your child. T.I. should make is it so all of his children have a stay at home mom, because that is what is best for them. If another 12-20 grand will make the life of your mothers children happy and comfortable do it. Its not like you are going to suffer financially. Check Russell and Kimora's agreement it's about the children not making the ex suffer because things didn't work out. Now this may not be his legal responsibility but it's what is best for the children. Just because you want to have your order reviewed doesn't make you a gold-digging lazy broad trying to live off of your ex. and just because your baby's mother wants a review doesn't mean you are an uncaring dead beat dad. But child support orders protect both parties, and the children.

I don't normally post more

I don't normally post more than one comment, but I must clear up that his sons' mother is not one who has never had a job. She decided to focus on her education so that she could earn/do more for herself and children. It is absurd how many leave comments about her being a bitch, gold digger, hood rat, etc. Many of you are leaving these comments solely because you are fans of his. She is nothing more than a mother who wants the best for her children, isn't that what we as a people should want for our kids? We have this thought that if you get pregnant you "do what you gotta do". We slander the female, whether she deserves it or not. The point is, if you are making over $10 million a year, why should you not give more than $1000 per child, per month? This is whether you pay for school and health insurance or not. I feel he will do the right thing in the end, but it is not for us to judge either of them. It's about what's best for the CHILDREN...period.

TI needs to start wearing some condoms.[/quote] If he can afford to care for his kids, he doesn't need condoms! Folks kill me saying what others need to do. He's taking care of ALL of his kids, his family, girlfriend and even the kids' mother... and still has more money than most of us. He obviously has his ish together, we don't need to worry about what he should be doing.[/quote] I understand your position, however, money isn't everything and does not make him a better person than us. Second, this is an opinion blog. That's what we are here to do.

[quote comment="205803"]@round the way girl For some reason what you're saying does in fact sound correct. How in the hell does he have the children most of the time when he is working. I even heard he has three nannies..wtf do you need with 3 nannies if YOU ARE taking care of the kids???? Another thing is this, many people seem to forget that Tip is about to go to jail for a year, so who's going to be taking care of the children then? Answer: THE MOTHER If something happens to him in jail, then what?? And let's not forget about the other times Tip was in jail (2 years before Urban Legend album) and at that time he wasn't even making the type of money he's making now, and he had 3 kids at that time (the 2 boys with LaShon and a daughter by another woman). There is nothing wrong with making sure that things are properly in order for her children.[/quote] She can ensure that by getting a JOB and doing her part.

[quote comment="205478"][quote comment="205455"]I hoep this works out for T.I. Me and hubby are far from being rich but had a similar situation. Hubby was paying child support for his daughter, mother decided to take him back for a modification (to get more money). He shows up with receipts for clothing, extracurricular activities, insurance, hell everything. The courts basically told him those were considered 'gifts' and could not be used for child support assessment. WTF?!?! Well, everything but the insurance, he did get credit for that. But God don't like ugly because ole' girl still got her face broke when they gave him credit for having another child (our child together) and then she started getting LESS than what she had before. HAHA!!!!![/quote] What a spiteful bitch you are. Your laughing because she tried to get more money and ended up getting less for his other child which is your childs sibling? SMH. Thats not funny and God sure dont like ugly and thats why your "hubby" is probably still freakin his other BM. HAHA to that wit ya childish ass![/quote] WOW!!! This has GOT to be the dumbest thing I've ever read. The woman was clearly being greedy. Her husband was paying child support and then some, so she had no reason to ask for more. Child support is supplemental and for the child. It's not meant to make life better for the parent. If he was doing his part with the child support, and still providing for the daughter in other areas financially, this chick had no reason to ask for more. She deserves what she got because she was being spiteful. Clearly, you are one of those women who would do such a thing.

I think that both parents are

I think that both parents are equally responsible for taking care of the children. Therefore, if TI contributes money into the household then so should the babymother. Why should he be the only one taking care of her household while she does not work. I do think that the money he gives should be based on his income though so she may end up getting more money after they go to court. For those that say that Tiny doeasn't work so why should the babymother? Newsflash! The babymother is not with TI, maybe she should get a man to support her so that she doesn't have to work either. TI is only responsible for HELPING support his kids NOT the babymother too.

It shames me when women take

It shames me when women take advantage of a situation. Here you are recieving $2000 a month for child support and you choose not to work and request an increase as if he is not already doing more than his part and yours. Lashon needs to get off her ass and get a job, in the words of TI POINT BLANK PERIOD. She need sto be thankful that he is a MAN first and foremost and takes care of his responsibility. I hope the judge rebukes her demands and informs her that she needs to get a JOB. Not only did she pick the perfect timing, but isn't TI going away for a while, I guess that's why she feels she needs more. I despise coniving women, I despise people who take advantage of others willingly. Also, I am major TI fan, so of course I am on his side, but look at the matter at hand, she is just wrong. Get up Get out and Do something . . . Damn, I should just find someone with potential and have a baby that seems like the American way nowadays, no need to work, just have a baby it will answer all of your prayers. Oh wait, make sure it's with someone with funding . . .is that what goes through your head. Not let ME eductae myself, let ME handle business, let ME provide for my family, let ME appreciate my baby father cause he could be a deadbeat, hence ME, maybe I am too independent . . . shame on ME. It irritates me ultimately. Keep doing you TI you (expect nothing in return for your good deeds) will only be BLESSED abundantly.

TI, I commend you for that. I

TI, I commend you for that. I also like the way you said it's you responsibility as a parent. A lot of fathers turn their back on their other children when they are in a relationship with someone else, other than the mother so I commend you for doing your part. Much respect!

[quote comment="205749"]DAmn how about BUILDING black families? I take no sympathy with either of these coons. Stop sleeping around with strangers when there's no committment. End the whole baby mama/daddy culture, it's not cool and no one will ever respect you. And for those taking sides with them, stop it. Condemn the fact it was their irresponsible and dumb and ghetto to do this shit. No wonder we're looked down upon. Fools like this. I'm soooooooooo glad I'm not into these fakeass thugs and into REAL men who are well educated and considerate. Too many black women wanna mess round with thugs, cuz they think an educated brother is too "corny" or got no "swag" (STFU with that lameass word!). Its their own damn fault. These ghetto ass fools get no love from me.[/quote] But from what someone previously stated they were high school sweethearts. It's not like she was a jump off. Besides, their union produced not one but TWO kids. So I think women that don't have children need to use these lessons as food for thought. I know I am.

[quote comment="205688"][quote comment="205575"]A friend of mine here in ATL has been fooling around with TI for a couple of years now. She is a lot cuter than Tiny, (NOT THAT IT TAKES MUCH TO BE CUTER THAN TINY) but she told me that she feels that Tiny is just on TI's arm because she used to take care of him financially prior to him making it big so he feels obligated to be there for her and all of them kids.[/quote] Oh, I don't doubt that at all. Personally, I think she got some shyt on him. Plus, the fact that I don't think she minds the other women...I heard she used to pick em out for him...I know...[/quote] lol...I can't believe I'm reading this dumb fucking bull shit...girl tell your friend that she's a dumb ass but I guess when you live in the hood, no education, have a big ass and your pussy to sell to get by who am I to judge really.. T.I. don't want her and if she think she's more special than tiny then she's a bigger fool. Men will tell a woman anything he feels she want to ear to get what he wants. I'm pretty sure if T.I. wanted to leave he would kids or no kids or tiny..

[quote comment="205739"]My

[quote comment="205739"]My sister is 1 of T.I.'s sons' mom best friends. He does give her $2k a month, but that's all. The clothes, food, gifts, etc. are all at his home, not hers(which is bad b/c they live w/ her). He is a good dad to his sons, but for those saying he has them all the time, please tell how that's possible when he is always traveling for work and they are in school most of the year? I guess we should go with the pics he takes with them during the summer months... There are a lot of people saying $2k is plenty, but when you are making millions per year, that is bare minimum. She doesn't walk around in expensive clothes/jewelry, drive expensive cars...she wants the kids to live like his other children (and even one who is not his) who live with him lives, and I don't feel anything is wrong with that. I don't have any kids, but i'm sure it's hard for a her to look at how he throws money to Tiny(who from what I hear from HER "friends" shops like SHE'S making the money), while Lashon has to chase him down for money to buy her sons something simple like a bicycle. And for those who feel she should "get a job" to help should know that she was going to school, that's why she wasn't working. Such a shame, b/c they are both great parents. I hope all works out, b/c in the end it's the children that matter.[/quote] I respect your comment wholeheartedly but I have one comment. My sister has a child's father that does absolutely NOTHING. They've known each other since before puberty but still...NOTHING. Still, she works full time (overnight), attended GA State full time in the day (just graduated & starting grad school in Jan),and only makes $35K/yr. Plus, she just signed a contract for her first home. Her car was paid off last year. She's done all this on her own. No welfare, no foodstamps, no boyfriend money, etc. She has medical & life insurance. I'm not saying everyone is the same, but the fact that T.I.'s ex is in school isn't an excuse not to work. Thats all. But I feel like you conveyed your message very well.
