T.I Takes To Red Table Talk To Explain Hymen Statement
Remember, that earlier this month, T.I sparked major controversy by saying that he takes his daughter for annual hymen checks at the gynecologist’s.
“I began, from a place of truth, I began to embellish and exaggerate,” “People took it extremely literal. If you put any of my reputation about who I am as a father and who I’ve been, I honestly thought people knew me better than that.”
It all started during an episode of Nazanin Mandi’s Ladies Like Us podcast, T.I. said that he goes to the gynecologist regularly with his daughter to make sure that her hymen was in place. “We have yearly trips to the gynecologist to check her hymen. Yes, I go with her.
While T.I. has been tight-lipped about his comments regarding his daughter, his wife Tiny was also not commenting openly about the controversial remarks. “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 had said on the podcast. He added that as of her 18th birthday, she still had her hymen intact. The episode in which he made this claim has now been deleted.
But T.I. finally decided to open up about the remarks during an episode of Jada Pinkett Smith’s Red Table Talk where he appeared along with wife Tiny. Tip said that he feels sorry about making such comments about his daughter without her consent but a lot of things were misconstrued and assumed wrongly.
