Tiny is taking fans down memory lane in a recent interview where she opened up about the physical altercations that occurred between Kandi Burruss and her Xscape group members.

It's been two decades since the all-female R'n'B group Xscape split back in the '90s, but fans are still wondering what happened to the musical divas who sold seven million albums worldwide.

Tameka "Tiny" Harris sat down with DJ Vlad and recalled how the break-up was a long time coming and ultimately the right decision for herself, Kandi Burruss, and sisters Tamika and LaTocha Scott.

In the interview uploaded to VLAD TV on YouTube, Harris explained that the group had not been getting along for a long time because of past unresolved issues that eventually escalated over time.

The "T.I. & Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle" star added that ego played a huge part in the disintegration of the group, as well as input from outside forces that caused tensions to grow.

Harris also revealed that the animosity between the group members eventually led to a physical altercation between herself and Burruss and a fight between Buruss and LaTocha. She admitted:

"I was pregnant, so you know, it wasn't that bad, but [Kandi and I] did have like a little slap here and there. We got into it a little, and then, Tocha and Kandi finally got into a fight as well."

The heated feud between the former members of Xscape continued for almost a decade after the group broke up and the singers blamed each other for it.

The climax came when Tamika accused Burruss of sleeping with their label head Jermaine Dupri and his father during an interview on New York radio station Hot 97 in 2007.  Although Burruss admitted that she had crossed the line with Dupri, she denied being with his father and was hurt by the allegations.

By May 2018, the Xscape group members put their differences aside to protect their legacy. When news that an outsider was planning a documentary based on the group, the four ladies rallied each other and decided to film their docuseries. In 2017, Burrus told Essence:

“We caught wind that somebody was doing an unauthorized movie about us and we felt it was important for us to tell our own story..."

The group enlisted the "Love and Hip Hop" franchise producer, Mona Scott Young, and started working on their biopic. At the same time, the group focused on their music and held their first performance at the 2017 Essence Festival in New Orleans.

Shortly after their reunion, the group, now known as XSCAP3, signed with CAA and began working on new music. However, they were one member short as Burruss refused to rejoin the group.

The "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" star said she was willing to tour with the group and perform their famous hit, but she was not interested in making new music. The star said that she did not want to risk tarnishing the group's reputation with mediocre records.
