We've heard of dads cleaning their weapons in front of their daughters' boyfriends in an attempt to discourage certain types of affection. But this right here is next-level parenting that's quite cringe-worthy. Rapper T.I. wants to make sure his daughter is a virgin -- so much so that he admittedly accompanies her to her annual doctor visits to make sure her hymen is still intact.

Wait, what?

  • While on the 'Ladies Like Us' podcast, T.I. confessed he does the most to ensure his now 18-year-old daughter, Deyjah Harris, is still a virgin.

    In addition to Deyjah, T.I. has a 19-year-old son named Messiah, and 18-year-old son named Domani from previous relationships. The rapper and his longtime love and wife, Tameka "Tiny" Harris, have three children together: son Clifford "King" Joseph, 15, son Major, 11, and daughter Heiress, 3. Tip is also a stepdad to Tiny's 23-year-old daughter, Zonnique.

  • "... Not only have we had the conversation [about the birds and the bees], we have yearly trips to the gynecologist to check her hymen," he admitted.

    "So it's this one time we go, I think this might have been after her 16th birthday. This is what we do. Right after the birthday we celebrate," he added.

    The celeb dad continues:

    "Usually like the day after the party she's enjoying her gifts. I put a sticky note on the door: 'Gyno. Tomorrow. 9:30.' 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 they want you to sign this so we can share information. Is there anything you would not want me to know? See doc? No problem.' And so then they come and say, 'Well I just want you to know that there are other ways besides sex that the hymen can be broken like bike riding, athletics, horseback riding and just other forms of athletic physical activity.' So I say, 'Look doc, she don't ride no horses, she don't ride no bike, she don't play no sports. Just check the hymen please and give me back my results expeditiously."

  • Welp, as excited as the rapper dad is for his daughter's hymen is "intact," the internets aren't here for it.

    Facebook comments

    The reaction is super clear: People do not like knowing about Deyjah's hymen, and they do not like T.I. going into her doctor's visits to make sure his child is still a virgin.

    And honestly, we can't say we disagree.

  • Too much, T.I. -- too much.


    Honestly, we're at a loss for words. We've heard of strict parenting before, but getting your child to sign off so a doctor can give you the receipts she's not sleeping with anyone?

    Yeah, that's a little TMI and too much for us.
