As many know, the “Live Your Life” rapper came under fire last November after making some interesting comments about his daughter Deyjah’s virginity. He admitted to going to the teen’s gynecologist’s appointments with her to confirm her “hymen” was still intact to ensure she was virgin.

T.I. later apologized to his daughter on Jada Pinkett Smith‘s “Red Table Talk.” He said on the Facebook series, “She did have a problem with me talking about it and I understand that and I am incredibly apologetic to her for that.”

On the current season of “T.I. & Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle,” Deyjah finally broke her silence on the entire incident and how it’s impacted her life. She said on the trailer, “After all of this, it’s changed, honestly.”
