The Harris family continues to make headlines ever since King Harris and his superstar dad, “T.I.” Harris, were seen fighting some weeks ago.

It was said that King became angry at his parents for not agreeing with his assertion that he was living in a lavish mansion and was therefore “in the streets.”

T.I. and Tiny agreed with fans’ opinions that King was raised with a “silver spoon” in his mouth, but the Xscape singer recently disclosed the factor that set her son King apart from the other Harris kids.

On Friday, Tiny shared a post to her Instagram from what appears to be a family friend who once caught young King “in the hood standing on business.”

But Tiny thought otherwise about her 19-year-old son, whom she shares with T.I., saying that King has “always been my sweetheart but a terror at the same time.”

“I’m incredibly fortunate to have mine”, Tiny said, adding, “But every parent with multiple children knows it’s always that one!” She went on to mention King and his elder brother Domani Harris’ song, Father Like Sons.

“The music of my two sons tells their story. “#FatherLikeSons @domani, stand with our kings,” she wrote in closing.

Following her post, King uploaded an old clip of himself challenging another child to a slap-fight while “standing on business.”

Over the years, King has come to be associated with a rather negative connotation. He has faced criticism for his alleged out-of-control behavior during his time in the spotlight. These incidents include an altercation with Waffle House staff, being arrested, and convincing a homeless man to accept the Paqui One Chip challenge. A 14-year-old boy was tragically killed by the viral trend back in September.

Fans harbored sympathy for King despite his contentious actions, as they discovered that he was raised primarily at his grandmother’s home.

In an interview with Funny Marco, the Drip singer disclosed the information, saying that he visited his parents’ home only to record an episode of their reality show, T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle.

Social media users conjectured that Tiny’s mother, Dianne Cottle-Pope, was the grandmother King was staying with, although King never mentions this.
