T.I.'s Daughter Unfollows Him in the Wake of "Hymen Check" Controversy
Deyjah Harris no longer follows her dad on Instagram or Twitter
Published Nov 11, 2019T.I.'s daughter Deyjah Harris has unfollowed her dad on social media.
Following some seriously cringe commentary last week from the rapper about his daughter's annual "hymen check," the 18-year-old is distancing herself from her father online — by unfollowing him on Instagram and Twitter.
As E! News points out, Harris's unverified Twitter account liked a handful of tweets last week that referenced her father's creepy obsession with her virginity. Some of the posts called the situation "possessive" and "controlling."

T.I. went on the Ladies Like Us podcast last week and admitted to making his daughter Deyjah go to her gynecologist every year on the day after her birthday to check if her hymen is intact.
"So we'll go and sit down and the doctor comes and talk," T.I. said in the episode, "and the doctor's maintaining a high level of professionalism. 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 would not want me to know? See, Doc? Ain't no problem.'"
Despite being well-aware of the myriad ways one can break their hymen, T.I. insisted that Harris continues to get the check.
"And 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.'"
Podcast hosts Nazanin Mandi and Nadia Moham later apologized for the episode, saying that they "support and love women and feel that their bodies are theirs to do as they wish."
