Rapper T.I.’s daughter Deyjah is back in action weeks after her father caused controversy with his virginity test admission.
18-year-old Deyjah reappeared on Instagram posting a short video of herself. In the snap, she shows off her new blue hair, tagging the stylists behind the color. She tagged herself as hanging in Washington D.C.
The post comes weeks after Deyjah was dragged into the public eye with T.I.’s comments about taking her to a gynecologist annually. He dropped the bombshell while on the podcast “Ladies Like Us.”
T.I. said he checked to see if her hymen was still intact every visit. He believed it would tell him if she was a virgin or not. The rapper even admitted making Deyjah sign medical releases to allow him to see her tests.
In the days after the controversy, Deyjah stayed quiet amid the scandal but did show where she stood with liked tweets. She liked messages that commented on T.I.’s comment, “this is disgusting, possessive and controlling whew.”
Another read, “That is beyond possessive.” Deyjah’s liking of the tweets would make one think she agrees with their views. She liked the message, “I hope your truly ok. Him telling the world your personal business medically and your choices as a woman to do or not do a personal and special moment in your life is never right.”
The hosts of the podcast “Ladies Like Us”, issued an apology for not criticizing T.I. in the moment, “, “To everyone confused, angry and hurt by the recent episode of “Ladies Like Us”, we want to start off by saying that we sincerely apologize for our knee jerk reaction to the uncomfortable topic. We were completely caught off guard/shocked and looking back, we should have reacted much differently in the moment.”
Planned Parenthood fired off this message, “Some people think you can tell if someone’s had sex before if their hymen is stretched open. But that’s not the case. Say it with us: YOU👏CAN’T👏TELL👏IF👏SOMEONE’S👏HAD👏SEX👏BY👏THE👏WAY👏THEIR👏HYMEN👏LOOKS👏OR👏FEELS.”
T.I. spoke on the issue with Jada Pinkett Smith on Red Table Talk. He apologized for the comments and said he learned a lot after catching heat.
