Last year, TI daughter Deyjah Harris was in the news after her dad shared some personal stories about her during an interview.
The rapper told the podcast Ladies Like Us that he took his daughter Deyjah Harris to the gynaecologist for "hymen checks" every year. T.I. said he was trying to make sure that Deyjah is still a virgin. The rapper’s comments caused immense backlash, which then caused the podcast, Ladies Like Us, to issue an apology and take the episode down.
During the podcast, T.I revealed,
"This is the thing. Deyjah’s 18, just graduated high school now and she’s attending her first year of college, figuring it out for herself. And yes, not only have we had the conversation, we have yearly trips to the gynecologist to check her hymen. So we’ll go and sit down and the doctor will come and talk and the doctor’s maintaining a high level of professionalism. 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 would not want me to know? See doc? No problem.’"
"And so then [the physicians] come and say, ‘Well I just want you to know that there are other ways besides sex that the hymen can be broken like bike riding, athletics, horseback riding and just other forms of athletic physical activity.’ So I say, ‘Look doc, she don’t ride no horses, she don’t ride no bike, she don’t play no sports,'" he tells the podcast hosts. "Just check the hymen please and give me back my results expeditiously.'”
T.I. later joined Jada Pinkett Smith on Red Table Talk to try and explain what he really meant by the controversial remarks. The rapper said,
What is the purpose and place of a father in this society? Because a father like myself, who just wants to be as involved and attentive as possible, we could draw the conclusion of, we just donate sperm and come pay for things and we don’t get to have no say in how things are handled.
