The rapper appeared on the Ladies “like Us”podcast where he detailed how he makes sure his daughter is not sexually active. “We have yearly trips to the gynecologist to check her hymen,” T.I. told the two female hosts. “Yes, I go with her,” he said when the hosts questioned if he was serious.
“Right after the birthday, we celebrate, you know, usually the day after the party she’s enjoying her gifts, I put a sticky note on the door, Gyno tomorrow 9:30,” he continued. He went on to tell a story about how the doctor always maintains a level of professionalism and made his daughter, Deyjah sign a document so that her health information can be shared with her father. “Is there anything that you would not want me to know?” T.I. said to his daughter at the time. “See doc, ain’t no problem.”
T.I. defended his actions by saying he thinks a lot of people wish their parents had been more protective of them. He went on to suggest that his daughter will look back on his actions and be grateful that he was so involved.
He said: “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 hosts of the podcast laughed and said his daughter is a “prisoner” and that T.I. is encouraging men to be “vultures.”
T.I. admitted though that he isn’t that strict with his 15-year-old son King, who is already sexually active. He said: “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?
