Miss Deyjah Harris, the bright college student who happens to be T.I.’s daughter, has decided to address the controversial comments he made about her virginity a few months ago.
The 18-year-old model and role model appears in the reality series, T.I. & Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle, where she spoke about the eye-popping interview for the first time.
Last November, Tiny Harris’ husband was bashed for saying that he used to go to the gynecologist with Deyjah for a hymen check so he could be sure that she was still a virgin.
The over-controlling rapper said: “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’s like, ‘You know sir, I have to, in order to share information’… I’m like, ‘Deyjah, and 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.’”
After receiving major backlash from social media users, the hip-hop star was forced to apologize for the remarks. On the new season of T.I. & Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle, Dejah said: “After all of this, it’s changed, honestly.”
Tiny added that her husband “has a way of taking things a little too far.” In another scene, T.I. is screaming that nobody can tell him how to “raise” his children.
Deyjah is back on social media, and she is doing a phenomenal job as a mental health advocate, she recently shared a helpful video with great tips for those battling depression and anxiety and fans are praising her.
One of them said: “Thank you so much for this video! I felt HEARD! So relatable & comforting! You’re definitely going to be the voice for our generation regarding Mental Health. Well said❤️ , I genuinely felt that you cared & were intentional about what you shared. You’re amazing! Please continue what you’re doing🥰 THANK YOU AGAIN!!!”

although it took forever😩, the mental health video has finally been uploaded on youtube. no matter what challenges you deal with, no matter where you are with your recovery, no matter how flawed you might be, there is nothing that needs to be added or taken away from who you are as a person. you can be happy and prosperous in all aspects of your life and STILL struggle. mental illness doesn’t discriminate. you’ll never be the exception to recovery so just remember to treat yourself warmly. eventually, every experience will get you exactly where you’re destined to be and it’ll all make sense. we’re going to get through this. again, i don’t have all of the answers, i’m simply here to give light to wherever there’s darkness and connect with you all. you are never alone. it’s okay if your strength looks different this season. i hope you all learn to embrace everything that comes with you and your being but most of all, as much as some of you might say i inspire you, i hope your own life inspires you. thank you so much to anyone who showed me love and support, it’s more than appreciated. enjoy 🧚🏼♀️. link is in my bio
