Earlier this month, T.I. revealed on the "Ladies Like Us" podcast that he takes his daughter, Deyjah, to the gynecologist each year to "check her hymen." "Deyjah's 18, just graduated high school now and she's attending her first year of college, figuring it out for herself," T.I. said on the podcast. "And yes, not only have we had the conversation, we have yearly trips to the gynecologist to check her hymen. Yes, I go with her."
No surprise, people found it weird and controlling. The podcast episode has since been taken down, but the ensuing backlash is something T.I. now refers to as "hymen-gate."
