AceShowbiz - T.I. has forbidden his 18-year-old daughter Deyjah from having sex and to make sure she's still virgin, he has been taking her to gynecologist every year to check her hymen. The rapper made the shocking revelation as he talked about parenthood in an interview on "Ladies Like Us" podcast.
"Deyjah's 18, just graduated high school now and she's attending her first year of college, figuring it out for herself," he said. When asked if he talked to her about sex, he replied, "Not only have we had the conversation, we have yearly trips to the gynecologist to check her hymen."
One of the hosts called his daughter "prisoner," but T.I. defended himself, "I think that most kids in hindsight, looking back, they always thank their parents for not allowing them to damage themselves as much as they could have."
The hip hop star revealed that they usually went to the doctor after her birthday. "This is what we do. Right after the birthday we celebrate," he explained. "Usually like the day after the party, she's enjoying her gifts. I put a sticky note on the door: 'Gyno. Tomorrow. 9:30.' "
As the doctor refused to share any information without the patient's consent, T.I. had to coax his teen daughter to sign the waiver. He opened up, "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.' "
When the doctor lectured him about other ways for hymen to get broken besides sex, "like bike riding, athletics, horseback riding, and just other forms of athletic physical activity," he insisted on getting the virginity exam done, "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.' "
"I will say as of her 18th birthday, her hymen is still intact," T.I. claimed. And he's not too worried that she would attract suitors because "who wants a virgin? Like, really? All that work," he said.
T.I. also has sons but he was not so strict with them. "I will definitely feel different about a boy than I will about a girl. And that's just the God's honest truth. I don't think there's any father out there who'll tell you any different," he claimed.
Deyjah is very popular on Instagram, amassing over a million followers. Earlier this year before her birthday, she told her online admirers, "I just want to quickly say that just because I'm turning 18 in June…that doesn't mean 1. that ya'll will even get the chance to lmaooooooo 2. more importantly, that still doesn't make it right for you grown a** men to try and get at me…"
She added, "I will still be A TEENAGER!!! if you're not ok with someone your age tryna get with your daughter, sister, niece, etc. then don't think it's ok with me."
