Rapper T.I. will marry his longterm girlfriend TAMEKA 'TINY' COTTLE before he begins his prison sentence in May (09), according to a new report.
The Live Your Life hitmaker, real name Clifford Harris, Jr., is due to report to authorities by 19 May, when he will serve a year and a day for his conviction on illegal weapons possession charges.
The punishment relates to his 2007 arrest, when he was caught attempting to purchase an arsenal of guns from an undercover FBI agent.
And according to MediaTakeOut.com, T.I. will head to jail a married man - the website claims he will marry former Xscape singer Cottle in the coming weeks.
A source close to the couple claims they have been "thinking about" exchanging vows for a while.
The insider adds, "They're having a small, intimate ceremony... It will be private and it will happen before T.I. (enters prison)."
A spokesperson for the couple couldn't be reached for comment as WENN went to press.
The stars have been dating since 2001 and share two children together, sons Major and King. T.I. also has three other kids, while Cottle has a daughter from a previous relationship.
