Rapper T.I. recently made an appearance on the Red Table Talk and explained his comments regarding his daughter’s hymen.
“I began to embellish and exaggerate and I think a lot of people took it extremely literal,” T.I. says of his infamous hymen statements.
“I honestly thought people knew me better than that,” he complains. His wife, Tiny, was there to support him.
“My intentions have been terribly misconstrued and misconceived,” T.I. claims.
“I never said I was in any exam room, that is an assumption, that is a falsity,” he adds.
“I never said it was being done present day, as an 18-year-old,” T.I. asserts. “And I never said that her mother wasn’t present.”
“Her mom was present,” he clarifies. “This false narrative has just been sensationalized.”
“She did have a problem with me talking about it and I am incredibly apologetic to her about it,” T.I. confesses.
He explains: “She understands my intention, she knows who I am and who I’ve always been.”
“The outside, the noise is distracting, it’s confusing and it’s hurtful and embarrassing, he complains.
T.I. tries to clarify: “I’m not there to protect virginity, I just know that is a big move.”
He explains: “Once you make that move there are things that happen that follow, you have to be equipped and I don’t know if you’re equipped.”
“Awareness is my first line of defense,”: T.I. claims. “That’s different, that’s education,” Jada tells him. “You only have so much control.”
