T.I. Supporting Tiny Heiress After Her Bodyguard Tragically Passes Away
This is a difficult time for Tameka “Tiny” Harris.
The singer’s security guard, Big Rio, sadly passed away last week.
While it’s been an extremely emotional time, the 42-year-old is leaning on her husband T.I. to deal with the pain.
The mother of four revealed Big’s passing on Instagram in an emotional post.
“We lost one of my favorite security guards last night,” she wrote on Sunday, December 3.
“He was definitely more like family to me! Used to look forward to going home to talk to @jusbigrio.”
She continued, “The house want [sic] be the same without him!! We will truly miss Big Rio!!”
The good news is she is spending time with the “Live Your Life” rapper.
“Tiny has been shattered by the loss of her bodyguard and she has been leaning on T.I. for strength during the sad time,” a source told Hollywood Life.
“Tiny has been trying to carry on with work and her tour but has been struggling with grief at the same time.
The source continued, “She has been crying on T.I.’s shoulder and is grateful for his love during tough times like these.”
Though the pair has had some rocky moments throughout the years, they have always been there to support one another.
“Thanks to T.I.’s love, support and daily communication, Tiny has been able to persevere,” the source said.
“She gains strength from his love and has been able to continue with her tour despite being rocked by the loss of her dear friend and protector.”
Our thoughts and prayers are with Big Rio’s family and friends.
