T.I. made a rather shocking revelation during a recent conversation with the “Ladies Like Us” podcast. While speaking about his daughter Deyjah Harris, he revealed he accompanies her to the gynecologist to make sure her hymen is still intact.

“I will say as of her 18th birthday, her hymen is still intact,” Tip said. “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 [about sex], we have yearly trips to the gynecologist to check her hymen.”

Although podcast hosts Nazanin Mandi and Nadia Moham initially thought Tip was joking, they quickly realized he was more serious than a heart attack as the Hustle Gang boss went into even more detail.



“So it’s this one time we go, I think this might have been after her 16th birthday,” he explained. “This is what we do… Usually, like the day after the [birthday] party, she’s enjoying her gifts. I put a sticky note on the door: ‘Gyno. Tomorrow. 9:30.’ 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, ‘Well, 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.’”

Tip added the doctor tried to explain there are other ways to break the hymen, but he said all he wanted was the results.



“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.’”

He wrapped up his commentary with, “[Virgins] — they’re no fun,” he said. “Who wants a virgin? Like really? All that work.”

Naturally, Tip’s confession has yielded strong reactions on Twitter. They range from shock and disbelief to outrage, especially when it appears T.I. has a double standard when it comes to his sons.



“I don’t want any of my children to have sex before it’s time for them, but who’s to say when it’s time?” he said, as reported by UK’s Daily Mail. “However, 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.”

Meanwhile, Deyjah is behind the scenes “liking” several tweets about how “possessive” her father’s actions are.
