Chef stirs drama at T.I. and Tiny's baby shower

A disgruntled chef almost ruined a baby shower organized for rapper T.I. and his pregnant wife Tameka 'Tiny' Cottle.

The hip-hop star, real name Clifford Harris, Jr., and his wife Tiny gathered their family and friends, including singers Monica and Kandi Burruss, for the party at the suitably-named The Royal Harris Castle in Atlanta, Georgia on Sunday (06Mar16).

The bash was a lavish affair, but the celebrations were almost ruined after a chef they had hired to take care of the appetizers showed up two hours late - and then stormed off with the food after complaining about a lack of work space.

Tiny tells TMZ.com the tardy caterer, Chef Kool, became annoyed the cook in charge of the main course had taken over the kitchen, and he promptly walked out of the event, despite previously accepting a $1,000 deposit.

Chef Kool claims he only stormed out after being told he wouldn't get paid.

However, Tiny refused to let the drama overshadow her big day, and she has since shared a series of photos from the bash on social media.

The former Xscape singer is due in April (16). The couple, which wed in 2010, already has two sons together, King and Major, while Tiny gave birth to a stillborn daughter, named Leyah, in 2007.

T.I., 35, also has three children from previous relationships, while Tiny, 40, is mom to another girl from a past romance.
