Last November, the “Live Your Life” rapper admitted to going to his 18-year-old daughter’s gynecologist’s appointments with her to confirm that her hymen was still “intact” to ensure she was a virgin.
“So we’ll go and sit down and the doctor will come and talk and the doctor’s maintaining a high level of professionalism,” T.I. told the “Ladies Like Us” podcast hosts. “He’s like, ‘You know sir, I have to, in order to share information’… I’m like, ‘Deyjah they want you to sign this so we can share information. Is there anything you wouldn’t want me to know? Oh, ok. See doc, no problem.’”
After receiving major backlash from social media users, the rapper eventually apologized for his comments. Deyjah, on the other hand, remained mute until now.
On the new season of “T.I. & Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle,” the teenager finally broke her silence about her father’s remarks and how it impacted her. She said in the new trailer, “After all of this, it’s changed, honestly.” Her stepmother and T.I.’s wife, Tiny Harris, said that her husband “has a way of taking things a little too far.” Another scene showed T.I. saying that nobody can tell him how to “raise” his children.
“She did have a problem with me talking about it and I understand that and I am incredibly apologetic to her for that,” he said on the Facebook series.
Despite T.I. apologizing to his daughter, fans are looking forward to hearing Deyjah’s side of things.
“Poor Deyjah, Tip so incredibly narcissistic it’s disgusting. I’m waiting to see what she says. We finally get to her side of the truth 🗣”
“Only story I wanna hear is Deyjah’s … Your story always the same TI 😭 “
“Idc hes sick to me. It’s cool if you don’t want her having sex young but at some point you have to realise you’re just shaming her. and it’s probably damaging their relationship, cos if anything ever happens to her he’s gonna be the last person she tells”
“Oop mama tip wasn’t with it 😩 no one is telling him how to parent they just saying don’t tell your kids business to the world 🙄”
“This is going to drag out forever I feel bad for his daughter bc that was really unnecessary. I wanna hear what she gone say”
“Friends and Family Hustle” airs on VH1 on Monday, April 13 at 9 p.m. ET.
