TI admits to joining daughter at gynecologist, requests hymen exam
By Robert Banks
T.I. gets heat on social media for saying he takes his daughter to the doctor every year to, “check her hymen”.
Actor, producer and Hip-hop artist T.I. went on Ladies Like Us, a podcast that is hosted by Nazanin Mandi and Nadia Moham, on Tuesday’s episode (since deleted). On the podcast, he admits that he recently took his 18-year-old daughter, Deyjah Harris to a gynecologist to have the doctor perform an examination of her hymen. It’s something that he accompanies Deyjah every year, in fact.
"“So we’ll go and sit down and the doctor comes 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? Ain’t no problem…’”"
In response to the idea that this hymen-checking might be an incredibly misguided and even harmful idea, T.I. stated:
"“And so then they 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. Just check the hymen, please, and give me back my results expeditiously.’"
As of the most recent exam, TI proudly touts that the examination produced the results he desired.
"I will say, as of her 18th birthday, her hymen is still intact.”"
After the interview social media was quick to check T.I. for “controlling” his daughter. She was not too happy about the revelation either. She started to like tweets that were in direct disagreement with her father’s actions in the situation. Some even called the father-daughter visit disgusting.
With this said what do you think of T.I. comments? Do you see where he is coming from or is he out of his mind? Leave your thoughts down below.
