T.I wife, Tameka “Tiny” Harris has finally broken the silence on her husband’s controversial comments about attending his daughter’s gynecologist appointments to “check her hymen.” to ensure its intact.
National Sportslink gathered that the 44-year-old reality star shared a photo of her and T.I to Instagram on Tuesday, which she captioned, “Mi amor por siempre…,” which translates to “my love always.”
While Tiny’s support for her husband, who has yet to release a statement about his troublesome remarks, was obvious, the same can’t be said for her support of her stepdaughter Deyjah.
After a fan commented on the Instagram photo, asking if Deyjah was OK, Tiny simply responded with multiple eye-rolling emojis: “🙄🙄🙄🙄.”
T.I’s wife’s comment came shortly after Deyjah pulled the ultimate social media move, unfollowing her dad, Tiny and her stepsister Zonnique Pullins. While the 18-year-old college student has yet to publicly address her father’s comments directly, she has liked a number of tweets that called his remarks “disgusting,” “possessive” and “controlling.” Deyjah additionally tweeted, “I loveeeeeee yalllllll” after receiving messages of support from fans.
National Sportslink recalls that during a recent podcast interview, T.I. spoke about visiting the gynecologist with Deyjah to ensure that she’s a virgin. “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,'” the “Whatever You Like,” rapper told the co-hosts.
“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?'”
“I said, ‘Look doc, she doesn’t ride no horses, she doesn’t ride no bike, she doesn’t play no sports,, man, just check the hymen please and give me back my results, expeditiously,” T.I. recalled, laughing. “But I will say, as of her 18th birthday, her hymen is still intact.”
T.I.’s comments sparked outrage on social media, with celebrities like Chrissy Teigen and Iggy Azalea voicing their disapproval on Twitter.
Following the backlash, podcast hosts Nazanin Mandi and Nadia Moham released a joint statement denouncing Tip’s comments and apologizing for their “knee jerk reaction to the uncomfortable topic.”
Several celebrities, including Chrissy Teigen Y Iggy Azalea, have also reacted to the comments of T.I. “I really wish the women who interviewed him had said something to him,” Azalea wrote in a tweet that was deleted. “He has serious control problems with women in all aspects of his life and needs therapy.”
