TI discusses annual check-ups on his daughter’s virginity

By | Published on Thursday 7 November 2019


Rapper TI has said that he takes his eighteen year old daughter to the gynaecologist annually to ensure that she’s still a virgin. And if you think that sounds awful, wait until he tries to explain it like it’s a normal thing that any parent might do.

Appearing on the ‘Ladies Like Us’ podcast, the rapper was asked if he spoke to his children about sex. He answered by talking about his daughter Deyjah, saying: “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. Deyjah’s eighteen, 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 gynaecologist to check her hymen”.

Expanding on what, exactly, that means, he goes on: “Right after the birthday … usually, like, the day after the party [when] 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 adds. “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 wouldn’t want me to know? Oh, OK. See doc, no problem'”.

Sure, no problem. Why would that be a problem? Of course, the hymen can be broken through activities other than sex, but TI’s thought of that. He’s apparently made sure that the annual test remains accurate by stopping his daughter from doing any of those things. “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'”.

So there you go. This, let us not forget, is the rapper who appeared on ‘Blurred Lines’. And now, like him, we know way more than we should about his daughter.
