It’s probably safe to say that Deyjah Harris is over the embarrassment that her dad-mandated hymen check has caused her, once her father spilled the news all across the Internet for the world to see.
While we have heard what people are saying about his comments both on and off-line, few have heard what T.I. has had to say about his comments.
Jada Pinkett Smith is one of the few that have.
Pinkett Smith, the host of Facebook’s hit series Red Table Talk, revealed to Entertainment Tonight that she plans to have the rapper on the show.
“My next big guest is Tip. T.I. is coming to the table. Yes indeed,” Pinkett Smith revealed. “And of course, he’s going to address the controversy that has been swirling.”
There is no word on whether or not, Pinkett Smith’s mother, Adrienne Banfield-Jones or daughter, Willow will be on the episode. What was revealed is that T.I. will not by himself around the now infamous red table. His wife, Tiny, will also appear to talk about their marriage.
“We just shot that [episode of Red Table Talk] today,” Pinkett Smith shared. “And then he and [his wife] Tiny sit down and talk about how they survived, in regards to their marriage. So that will be next Monday.”
It is great that T.I. is speaking out. Still, that does not dismiss how Deyjah feels about this entire ordeal.
First rapper T.I.‘s daughter took her frustration out by unfollowing her dad, step-mom Tiny and sister Zonnique Pullins on Instagram. Complex reports that she has now deleted her own social media altogether.
Before she deleted her social media, Deyjah did thank her fans for their support. She also reportedly liked a series of tweets that called her father’s actions “disgusting,” “possessive” and “controlling,” before leaving Twitter.
Recently, rapper T.I. sparked public backlash after admitting in an interview that he accompanies his 18-year-old daughter to her gynecologist to make sure her “hymen is still intact.” Recently Deyjah was spotted in Mexico with the daughter of another famous rapper, Lil Wayne’s daughter, Reginae Carter, probably getting away from all the chatter about her private parts.
The blowback from the hymen controversy all started when T.I appeared on a podcast and revealed a little too much information.
“Right after the birthday, we celebrate… usually the day after the party. She’s enjoying her gifts. I put a sticky note on the door: ‘Gyno, tomorrow, 9:30,'” Tip said on the Ladies Like Us podcast.
“We’ll go and sit down, and the doctor will come and talk, and you know, the doctors maintain a high level of professionalism. He’s like, ‘Well, you know, sir: In order for me to share information…’ I say, ‘Deyjah they want you to sign this…so we can share information. Is there anything that you would not want me to know?'” He then recalled asking the doctor to “just check the hymen please and give me back my results, expeditiously.”
T.I. appearing on the show Red Table Talk will be epic for the show’s rating. This week, the show featured Robyn Crawford who spoke about her intimate relationship with Whitney Houston.
