Jada Pinkett Smith has discussed some of the toughest aspects of parenthood on her Facebook Watch series “Red Table Talk,” and is ready to chat with rapper T.I. about his unconventional method of keeping an eye on his 18-year-old daughter, Deyjah.
“My next big guest is Tip. T.I. is coming to the table. Yes indeed,” Pinkett Smith revealed to ET. “And of course, he’s going to address the controversy that has been swirling.”
T.I. — whose real name is Clifford Harris — received heavy backlash after admitting on the “Ladies Like Us” podcast that he accompanies his adult daughter to the gynecologist to ensure her hymen is still intact.
“I put a sticky note on the door: ‘Gyno. Tomorrow. 9:30,’” Tip explained to podcast hosts Nazanin Mandi and Nadia Moham. “I say, ‘Deyjah, they want you to sign this,’” regarding the release form every adult must sign to share medical information with others. “’Do you have, is there anything, is there anything that you would not want me to know? Oh, okay. See, Doc, ain’t no problem.’”
“I say, ‘Look, Doc,’” he went on. “‘She don’t ride no horses; she don’t ride no bikes; she don’t play no sports — man, just check the hymen please and give me back my results. Expeditiously!’ I will say, as of her 18th birthday, her hymen is still intact.”
Deyjah has since unfollowed her father on social media.
