Rapper T.I. made some interesting comments about his daughters’ virginity, that set the internet on fire.
On a podcast, T.I., revealed that he goes to the gynecologist every year with his 18-year-old daughter, Deyjah to ensure her hymen is still “intact.”
He says, "So we’ll go and sit down and the doctor will come and talk and the doctor’s maintaining a high level of professionalism." He continues, "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 wouldn’t want me to know? Oh, ok. See doc, no problem.'”
When the host of The Real tackled this sensitive topic, Jeannie Mai was the only host to agree with T.I. She states, “I support what T.I. is doing because I understand how hard it must be to communicate with an opposite gender, a daughter, especially in this time, especially with what he must have seen and known, you know, of what boys are like. For me, I was a very wild girl. I didn’t like rules, I rebelled a lot.”
Once social media got wind of her comments, she began to face a lot of backlash.

I can’t believe Jeannie Mai is siding with TI. Is it bc he’s friends with Jeezy? Like what the hell she sounded crazy trying to explain why too. How is this of all things going over her head?!
