Rapper T.I. made headlines when the rapper revealed he goes to the gynecologist with his 19-year-old daughter, Deyjah Harris, to make sure she’s a virgin. Now, his daughter is opening up about the embarrassment she suffered at the hands of her father. Breaking down crying in his week’s episode of the family’s reality show, “T.I. & Tiny: Friends and Family Hustle,” the VH1 star let her emotions show while opening up about “shocked” and “hurt” she was that her dad revealed it to the world.
“Things are completely uncomfortable for me right now,” Deyjah Harris said in the confessional on Monday’s episode while revealing the family was away on vacation together “so I have to see my Dad and be around him.” Adding “we’re in a foreign country so it’s not like I can leave and get away.”
Telling the cameras she was on Twitter when she noticed she was tagged in a post, T.I.’s daughter recalled, “The only word that I saw was ‘gynecologist’ and I didn’t even need to read the whole title ’cause I just knew. My heart sank — very shocked, hurt, angry, embarrassed.”
Speaking about the incident with her cousins, Deyjah Harris told them she was “embarrassed,” but “trying to put it in the back of my mind so I’m not really thinking about it. I know it’s not healthy. But I’ve been doing that since I was a child.”
Saying that T.I. has been going to the gynecologist with her “since I was 14 or 15,” she “couldn’t have said no” to him joining her even if she wanted to.

T.I. previously addressed his controversial comments on Jada Pinkett Smith‘s “Red Table Talk,” telling her, “I came to clear up any misconceptions that have been surrounding how we interact and parent and what is appropriate and inappropriate.”
Saying that people took what he said at face value, the rapper continued, “From a place of truth, I began to embellish and exaggerate and I think a lot of people took it extremely literal.” T.I. went on to clear up any confusion about Deyjah’s gynecologist appointments.
Claiming he used to attend her gyno appointments when his daughter was younger, he added that no one had “any” objection about him going with her but that didn’t mean he should have talked about it.
“She did have a problem with me talking about it however, and I understand that, and I am incredibly apologetic to her for that,” T.I. told Jada Pinkett Smith. “She understands my intentions and she knows who I am, who I’ve always been.”
