The infamous daughter of former Xscape member Tameka "Tiny" Harris, with a protective step-father T.I., Zonnique Pullins may have been arrested for that one incident in 2016 and caught up in some plastic/cosmetic surgery whirlwind, but other than that, she's a very level-headed, mature and responsible daughter.
And add to that, her love life is also something her raising parents are quite proud of, even though T.I. might give a side look at her boyfriend at times. Don't worry, they both are fond of their potential son-in-law. And their relationship has been going as good as it would've since the very beginning.
Zonnique Pullins has been dating her boyfriend Bandhunta Izzy since June 2018 as they celebrated his birthday in December 2019, and her parents are proud of Izzy's choice to make it as a rapper on his own. He's refused to appear on T.I. & Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle. The pair have even moved in together and had to squash a pregnancy rumor.
In the beginning stages of their relationship, the celebrity daughter Zonnique Pullins and her boyfriend Bandhunta were rarely seen together, but when they were, it was apparent they were so full of love. One of the first times they were seen cozying up was in September 2018 during a party and then at his meet-and-greet in October.

It was all well and good as they celebrated his 21st birthday in December 2018 in the Bahamas, which got quite the love from the fans, until someone came up with a wild theory that she was purposely hiding her belly on her social media pages. As you can see, there's no baby yet.
Although, it might've been stemmed from the fact that she did prank her fans in February 2018 that she might be bearing a child. "While Y’all been waiting to hear from Kylie, ya missed my whole pregnancy," she'd written on her Instagram post.

Still, when one use demanded to see her belly in the comment sections of a photo she put up in late January 2019, Pullins fired back at the user, and her mother joined in to back her up.
"Ya'll do know it's winter time right? I'm not hiding anything from ya'll get over it," the daughter old the user who asked to show her stomach, and Harris backed up with, "Right 😠." Of course, there were tons of support from other fans as well.

Yeah, it was a whirlwind moment back then.
Fast forward a year later, the whole family was celebrating Izzy's 22nd birthday in late December 2019. And it was a beautiful surprise for anyone who knew when mother Harris labeled Izzy her "new son" as she's found her daughter the happiest when with him.

But what about Tiny's husband? Well, T.I.'s always been super-protective of his girls since such a young age, but Zonnique believes it's been a little easier for her as she's gotten a little older. But she is assured he also likes her boyfriend and is just watching them with a side-eye, giving him a hard time, just for the sake of it.
This is the first relationship that Zonnique's been open about in all her life, and she's not even thinking of hiding any of the details. During the promotion of her two new singles in April 2020, she revealed that it is the "most serious relationship" she's had as she explained how T.I. overlooks at their relationship and how Bandhunta wants to make it on his own than appear on their show.

Revealing she's moved in with him, she told Hollywood Life, "And both my parents actually seem to really like my boyfriend. But pops still pretty much does the same thing. He still has to take him outside to talk for an hour or whatever. But I feel like my boyfriend now is kind of like his match. I feel like he sees a lot of his younger self in my boyfriend. So, even though he likes him, like he’s kind of always watching him with the side eye."
It was always unlikely that her boyfriend would ever appear in their family reality show, T.I. & Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle. On why that is so, she explains, "My boyfriend is a rapper, he's an artist, so he doesn't want to come on our show and seem like he’s trying to catch some type of fame from it. He never comes with me if I have to film. ... Now my boyfriend's like 'I don't want anyone to think I'm trying to get clout off you'."
So yeah, he's been trying to be as independent as possible. You gotta applaud the man for that.
According to sources, she's been in at least three other relationships in the past, one of whom had no problem appearing on the VH1 show.
