Jeannie Mai of â€œThe Realâ€� recently shared her thoughts on T.I.â€™s decision to check his 18-year-old daughterâ€™s hymen to ensure that she is â€œstill intact.â€�
On an episode of â€œThe Real,â€� the co-hosts discussed T.I.â€™s statements which he made during an episode of the â€œLadies Like Usâ€� podcast. He said he goes with his daughter, Deyjah, to her gynecologist appointments to â€œcheck her hymen.â€�
Mai responded by agreeing with T.I.
â€œI support what T.I. is doing because I understand how hard it must be to communicate with an opposite-gender daughter, especially in this time and especially with what he must have seen and known of what boys are like,â€� Mai said.
She continued by saying, â€œFor me, I was a very wild girl. I didnâ€™t like rules; I rebelled a lot.â€�
Mai also said that T.I. should speak with his daughter about his sexual health concerns.
â€œIs it the STDs? Is it that she doesnâ€™t understand what love is? Does he need to know who the boys are? Why doesnâ€™t he trust her? Whatever it is, he needs to speak it with her,â€� Mai said.
Following T.I.â€™s statement, â€œLadies Like Usâ€� podcast apologized and removed the episode. T.I. has yet to respond to the backlash.
