The Internet exploded when T.I. appeared on the Ladies Like Us podcast and revealed he takes his 18-year-old daughter Deyjah Harris to the gynecologist every year to “check her hymen.”
After tons of backlash, Tip hit Jada Pinkett Smith’s Red Table Talk to address the viral moment opening with “I was hoping to offset some of these opinions on me.”
Jada Pinkett Smith did not take it lightly on T.I., however, he states that it was being said in a joking manner filled with exaggeration. “I think this surrounds a conversation I was having in a very joking manner,” T.I. suggests.
“From a place of truth, I began to embellish and exaggerate. I think people kinda took it extremely literal, because if you put any of my reputation, who I am as a father, who I been… I honestly thought people knew me better than that.”
