T.I.’s wife tells TMZ that multiple prison officials actually saw the tour bus that picked up the rapper yesterday, and even took photos with T.I. in front of it, and nobody raised an issue.


T.I., who was moved to a halfway house last week after months in prison, was locked up again at a federal penitentiary, with his lawyer citing a flap over using a luxury bus to report to the halfway house.


The Federal Bureau of Prisons website Friday shows the rapper at the Atlanta penitentiary with a release date of Sept. 29.


The 30-year-old T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris, was released from a federal lockup in Arkansas on Wednesday and made the 375-mile trip to Atlanta in a gleaming motor coach.


His attorney, Steve Sadow, told The Associated Press late Thursday that federal officials moved T.I. because of an issue involving his transportation to Atlanta.


T.I. had been serving time for violating probation in a weapons case. As previously reported, the warden ordered T.I. back into custody after he made the trek to his halfway house, claiming T.I. only informed officials he would be traveling in a van, not a luxury tour bus.


Tameka “Tiny” Cottle tells TMZ that the tour bus arrived at the Arkansas prison yesterday, and prison officials “walked him over, took pics and told him good luck in life.”



According to Tiny, “This is a bunch of bulls**t… they should have said something before he got on the bus… T.I. would have politely gotten into a van.”


She adds, “T.I. is one of the strongest individuals I know … and they just trying to break him in more ways than one and it’s not gonna work! ‘Cause what God got for him, can’t no man take that away… period!”
