In an interview with Nazanin Mandi and Nadia Moham on the Ladies Like Us podcast, the rapper admitted that he makes a habit of accompanying his daughter Deyjah Harris to the gynecologist.
When asked if T.I. had the "sex talk" with Deyjah, he said, "Not only have we had the conversation. We have yearly trips to the gynecologist to check her hymen.... Yes, I go with her."
T.I. mentioned that on her 16th birthday, he "put a sticky note on the door: 'Gyno. Tomorrow. 9:30.'"
"So we'll go and sit down and the doctor comes and talk, and the doctor's maintaining a high level of professionalism," T.I. continued. "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.'"
Before you point out that a hymen can be broken without sexual penetration, you should know that T.I. is well-aware.
"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,'" he said. "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.'"
Proudly, he concluded, "I will say, as of her 18th birthday, her hymen is still intact."
Of course, the revelation has not been met with positivity on social media. Read some responses to the story below.
as a mother, ain't no fucking way I'd let my husband, father of my child, whatever take my daughter to the doctor every year for a fucking hymen check? I'd knock all this shit over.— KH (@thecoolestmama) November 6, 2019

Rapper T.I. says that he takes his daughter to the gynecologist to make sure her hymen is still intact!
Even after her 18th birthday (not that it makes it ok before her 18th birthday)
Horrifying https://t.co/hQwSSsqJER pic.twitter.com/59rSMTDKfz
T.I. is an abusive misogynist. He demands his daughter's gynecologist disclose the results of an annual "hymen check" to him so he can ensure she's still a virgin. When it comes to his wife, "that little sex box you got is half mine." This isn't over-protective. It's abusive. https://t.co/Muv8mLCrp8— Jill Filipovic (@JillFilipovic) November 6, 2019
This T.I. thing is so gross. And just because her "hymen is intact," it doesn't mean she hasn't been giving and receiving dat mouf or booty work, ole narrow-minded dirty fool.— Nichole 🍞🍯 (@tnwhiskeywoman) November 6, 2019
