ATLANTA (AP):

Tameka 'Tiny' Harris, wife of rapper T.I., has filed for divorce from the hip-hop entertainer.

Henry County Court records show that Harris filed for divorce after six years of marriage to the 36-year-old rapper, whose real name is Clifford Harris Jr.

Tameka Harris was a member of the defunct '90s multi-platinum R&B group Xscape.

She also won a Grammy Award in 2000 for co-writing TLC's hit single No Scrubs.

Records show that the 41-year-old singer filed for divorce on December 7.

T.I., Tameka and their children starred in the VH1 reality show T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle, which debuted in 2011. They have three children together.

Tameka had an older daughter, Zonnique Pullins, from a previous relationship.

A representative for T.I. has not immediately responded to an email for comment.
