T.I.’s Son King Addresses Heated Exchange With Parents: ‘I’m A Grown Ass Man Now’

ATLANTA, GA – T.I. and Tiny’s son King Harris is once again making headlines, this time for an altercation with his parents that was caught on camera during their attendance at the Atlanta Falcons and New Orleans Saints football game on Sunday:

The incident unfolded during an Instagram Live session that King was hosting, initially appearing as a lighthearted conversation about his upbringing. However, the tone quickly shifted as the problematic 19-year-old began defending himself against claims that he had a privileged childhood.

“I used to have to run to my grandmomma’s house ’cause I was getting into fights,” King alleged, expressing his desire to be out in the neighborhood rather than confined to the gated community where they reside.

His parents countered his statements, claiming that he used to throw tantrums to go to his grandmother’s house. Tiny, King’s mother, elaborated on this point, stating that King would suck a pacifier until he was 12 years old at his grandmother’s house, a behavior he didn’t engage in at their own home. T.I. chimed in, adding that King would “cry like a baby” when he didn’t get his way.


The situation rapidly deteriorated into a shouting match, with King accusing his father of lying. “You capping. I know you, you capping,” King exclaimed. However, his mother intervened, trying to calm the situation by telling him to “shut the f*** up.”

“What’s wrong with y’all? Why is y’all doing that to me? Y’all know me. You know I stand on business, why are you even letting somebody play me like that,” King argued vehemently. Although Tiny insisted the exchange was a joke, King was already consumed with rage. 

“You are embarrassing yourself and your family! You are embarrassing yourself!” T.I. told King before seemingly putting his son in a headlock. 

King responded with frustration, shouting, “Get off me n***a!” to which T.I. allegedly retorted, “You can’t do nothing with me! There ain’t sh*t you can do with me!”

In the aftermath of the altercation, King took to Instagram to express his feelings, sharing a series of posts that seemed directed at his parents. However, these posts have since been deleted.

In one post, King asserted his independence, writing, “I stand on business don’t give a f*** who u are.” He continued, “[I don’t give a f***] who [you] are, [Motherf******] can’t play [with] me [in] my face. [I’m] not goin for [that], [I’m] a grown ass man now.”

King also questioned his parents’ motives, writing, “If [I’m a] mistake say [that] stop making [the] world think [you f*** with] me when [you] dont.” He accused his parents of “faking [an] image for [the] internet” and declared, “N****s be faking [an] image for [the] internet & it aint me.”

He concluded with a message of support for his grandmother, sharing a photo of himself as a baby in her arms, accompanied by the caption, “As long as you stay by my side.”


This incident marks another instance of King’s involvement in controversial situations. In September, he faced social media backlash for challenging a homeless man to participate in the “One Chip Challenge” without providing him with water.
