Rapper T.I. has a doctor check his daughter’s hymen every year to ensure she’s a virgin

Published

Rapper T.I. has made the shocking revelation that he accompanies his 18-year-old daughter to the gynecologist every year to ensure that she is still a virgin.

Appearing on the Ladies Like Us podcast, the 39-year-old stressed how important it is to him that his teenage daughter Deyjah Harris has not had sex yet, admitting that he accompanies her on her annual gynecological checkup to confirm that her hymen isn’t broken.

‘I will say as of her 18th birthday, her hymen is still intact,’ he said.

‘Deyjah’s 18, just graduated high school now and she’s attending her first year of college, figuring it out for herself,’ said the star, who also has a three-year-old named Heiress.

‘And yes, not only have we had the conversation [about sex], we have yearly trips to the gynecologist to check her hymen.’

Lest the podcast hosts Nazanin Mandi and Nadia Moham think he was joking or exaggerating, T.I. then went into more detail about their doctor visits.

‘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 said.

‘Usually like the day after the party, she’s enjoying her gifts. I put a sticky note on the door: “Gyno. Tomorrow. 9:30.” 

Of course, doctors can’t share patient information without the patient’s consent, so T.I. cajoles his daughter into giving it. 

‘So we’ll go and sit down and the doctor will come and talk and the doctor’s maintaining a high level of professionalism,’ T.I. explained. 

‘He’s like, “Well, 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.”‘ 

Deyjah just started college, but T.I. says he makes her annual gynecologist appointment and meets with the doctor

The doctor has even explained that there are many other ways for a hymen to break besides sex, and in fact, many virgins no longer have hymens intact — but T.I. doesn’t care. 

‘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.”

T.I. defended his actions, explaining that he thinks a lot of people wish their parents had been more protective of them.

‘I think that most kids in hindsight, looking back, they always thank their parents for not allowing them to damage themselves as much as they could have,’ he said.

‘I don’t want any of my children to have sex before it’s time for them, but who’s to say when it’s time?’ he said, adding he [feels] different about a boy than I will about a girl’

But he went further, admitting he doesn’t want guys to take the time to woo his daughter even though she’s now an adult.

‘They’re no fun. Who wants a virgin?’ he asked. ‘Like, really? All that work.’  

The hosts of the podcast laughed hysterically throughout T.I.’s story, but also called Deyjah a ‘prisoner’ and told the rapper he was encouraging men to be ‘vultures.’ 

T.I. is not nearly as worried about the sexual activities of his 15-year-old son, King — who is already sexually active.

The teenager admitted in June 2019 episode of the family’s VH1 reality show that he is already doing the deed — and T.I., while clearly not totally thrilled, laughed it off.

‘I don’t want any of my children to have sex before it’s time for them, but who’s to say when it’s time?’ he said.

‘However, I will definitely feel different about a boy than I will about a girl. And that’s just the God’s honest truth. I don’t think there’s any father out there who’ll tell you any different.’

His possessiveness over the sexual activity of the women in his life does, however, extend to his wife Tiny, 44.

According to MadameNoir, in a recent episode of T.I.’s ExpediTIously podcast, he told Tiny that he was owed sex in their marriage contract.

‘What’s yours is mine and what’s mine is yours. That means that little thing you got, that little sex box you got is half mine,’ he said. ‘So you pick which side you want, and that’s yours. The rest of it is mine. We can split it right down the middle of the…What do they call it? The, the, the, is it the, “Uvula”?’

He seems to have been referring to the vulva.

‘What I’m saying is, it’s half mine. And my half is on the inside.’ 

Meanwhile, Deyjah — who has 1.4 million Instagram followers and appears on the family reality show, T.I. & Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle — isn’t a stranger to male attention, even if her father has confirmed that she’s limiting her engagement with the opposite sex.

Just before she celebrated her 18th birthday in June, she warned older guys to back off.

‘I just want to quickly say that just because I’m turning 18 in June…that doesn’t mean 1. that ya’ll will even get the chance to lmaooooooo 2. more importantly, that still doesn’t make it right for you grown a** men to try and get at me…’ she wrote on social media. 

‘I will still be A TEENAGER!!! if you’re not ok with someone your age tryna get with your daughter, sister, niece, etc. then don’t think it’s ok with me.’

PM woos voters in Grimsby saying Jeremy Corbyn has ‘betrayed’ them on Brexit

Published

on

By

Boris Johnson stepped up his campaign to smash Labour’s ‘red wall’ of Leave-voting heartlands as he visited Grimsby today.

The PM chatted happily with workers at a fish market in the key target seat after delivering a stark warning that Jeremy Corbyn has ‘betrayed’ Brexit supporters.

Mr Johnson laughed off boos and cheers as he posed with some of the produce, and for selfies.  

The visit came as the premier embarks on a blitz of Labour’s northern heartlands, just three days before the crucial election showdown.

Another poll today suggests the Tories still have a significant advantage, with Survation research for ITV’s GMB putting the party 14 points ahead of Labour.

But experts have warned that the result is still on a knife edge, and victory for Mr Johnson will depend on him winning over voters who have not backed the Tories for generations. 

On his tour today, Mr Johnson will criticise the Labour Party for sneering at their values and ignoring their core supporters.

He will accuse Mr Corbyn of sticking ‘two fingers up to the public’ as campaigning ramps up ahead of Thursday’s General Election.

Over the next 72 hours, Mr Johnson will visit every region of England and Wales, including West Yorkshire, Cheshire, Leicestershire, East Anglia, North Wales and the South West.

His aides believe these to be the areas that will decide the outcome of the election.

Mr Johnson will return to key pledges he made during the 2016 referendum campaign – including that of ending ‘uncontrolled and unlimited immigration’.

But his central message will be a condemnation of Remain-backing MPs who vowed at the last election to deliver Brexit but ‘shamefully did the exact opposite’.

‘Parliament has bent every rule and broken every convention as it has delayed, diluted and denied Brexit,’ he will say. ‘They won their seats on a false prospectus and then stuck two fingers up to the public.

‘Now they are proposing another referendum – this time rigging the result by extending the franchise to two million EU citizens.

‘It’s been the Great Betrayal, orchestrated from Islington by politicians who sneer at your values and ignore your votes.’ 

As the election campaign entered the home straight:

  • One poll showed the Conservative lead narrowing to eight points – leaving Mr Johnson perilously close to a hung parliament;
  • Senior Tory officials fear bad weather and a low turnout could help deny them a majority;
  • John McDonnell admitted Labour’s anti-Semitism crisis could cost them votes;
  • Labour set out radical plans to put workers on the boards of nationalised industries;
  • SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon said Labour would not ‘turn their backs’ on her party if Jeremy Corbyn forms a minority government;
  • Mr Johnson set out details of his immigration policy and pledged to reduce numbers after Brexit.

Although still ahead in the polls, Tory strategists argue the election is ‘closer than many people think’.

They said Mr Corbyn would become prime minister if the SNP and the Lib Dems pick up a handful of extra seats.

Sunderland is a Labour citadel but six in ten voters supported Leave in 2016. It was one of the earliest declarations on referendum night – and gave an early sign that many traditional Labour areas were backing Brexit.

There Mr Johnson will say: ‘It’s now been 1,264 days since Sunderland’s roar was heard on the night of 23 June 2016 – 1,264 days in which Parliament should have delivered what you voted for, taken us out of the EU, and addressed all the reasons you voted so decisively for change.

‘You voted to leave the EU because you wanted to stop sending the EU money we could spend at home, to end uncontrolled and unlimited immigration from the EU, to take back control from an unelected elite in Brussels – and to force politicians in Westminster to listen to you, not just London and the South East.

‘Instead we have had 1,264 days of dither and delay, prevarication and procrastination, obfuscation and obstruction.’

The Prime Minister is trying to storm a ‘Red Wall’ of around 80 constituencies – stretching from North Wales to Yorkshire – that have voted Labour for decades.

He will warn that if there is another hung parliament, Mr Corbyn and Miss Sturgeon will ‘conspire to frustrate Brexit again’.

In the South West, where he will end the day, he will warn that voting for the Liberal Democrats is a vote for ‘further paralysis and delay’ and will help Labour win the keys to Downing Street.

Labour would not ‘turn their backs’ on the SNP in the event it formed a minority government, Miss Sturgeon said yesterday.

The Scottish first minister said Mr Corbyn would need the support of another party to implement its policies and the SNP was willing to step in – on certain conditions.

She said she did not believe Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell’s insistence that Labour would go it alone – ‘no negotiation, no deals, no coalition’.

Nigel Farage suggested yesterday that his Brexit Party could be transformed into the ‘Reform Party’ if the UK leaves the EU.

He said he had already registered the name in a move ‘to campaign to change politics for good’.

The new party would work to abolish the House of Lords and seek a proportional voting system. Asked what would happen to his party after Brexit, Mr Farage told Sky News: ‘It’ll have to reform into the Reform Party, it’ll have to campaign to change politics for good.’

Asked about Thursday’s poll, he predicted ‘a turnout much lower than the pundits expect because people have lost faith in politics’.

  • The Observer newspaper failed to give Labour its wholehearted support in a full-page leader column yesterday.

The Left-wing Sunday newspaper condemned Mr Corbyn’s ‘disgraceful anti-Semitism crisis’ and said he had ‘displayed a staggering lack of contrition or empathy’.

The editorial urged readers to vote ‘as their conscience allows’ for a ‘pro-referendum, progressive candidate’ who is most likely to lead to the Conservatives’ defeat.

Its stance comes after Left-wing weekly the New Statesman also refused to endorse Mr Corbyn last week and branded him ‘unfit to be prime minister’. 

Tory lead sinks to just eight points as Remainers target key seats

The Conservatives’ lead narrowed yesterday, putting them just eight points clear of Labour.

With three days to go until the election on Thursday, the polls tightened – putting the Tories on course for a 14-seat majority.

Fears were also growing that a tactical voting campaign could cost Boris Johnson his majority after Remainer groups said just 41,000 voters could swing the election.

The Savanta ComRes poll for The Sunday Telegraph now shows the Tories on a similar figure to where they were at the start of the campaign.

Floating voters revolt

Left-wing activists have launched a campaign called ‘Votey McVoteface’ to oust Boris Johnson and other Tories from marginal seats by calling on canal boat owners to vote tactically.

The drive, named after a failed bid to name an exploration ship Boaty McBoatface, had urged people to register if they had ever moored in the PM’s West London seat of Uxbridge and South Ruislip.

It is funded by the Joseph Rowntree Reform Trust, whose website says it has given the group £12,922.

Those without a fixed abode still have a right to vote as well as those who live on a boat. Messages on the site suggest the group is in touch with Labour, the Sunday Times reported.

The group’s Facebook page calls for people to ‘support the parties which are most likely to get the Tories out’, whether or not the person lives there.

Almost half of those surveyed said that they would feel worried if they woke up on Friday to find that Jeremy Corbyn was the prime minister. Some 38 per cent said they would feel worried to find that Mr Johnson was to remain in No 10, the paper reported.

The poll puts the Tories on 41 per cent and Labour on 33 per cent, matching a Telegraph poll published at the beginning of the campaign.

The Tories have dropped by one point and Labour have gained a point since an earlier survey published by the paper last week.

The Liberal Democrats remained on 12 per cent and the Brexit Party’s support stayed steady at 3 per cent.

Insiders have identified the main danger to the Tories as T’n’T – which stands for ‘turnout and tactical voting’ and could tip the balance by more than 30 seats. It came as a report claimed that Mr Johnson would be denied a majority if just 41,000 people voted tactically in 36 seats.

Today, pro-Remain group Best for Britain will launch a report showing that tactical voting could swing the election if an average of just 1,131 Remainers in each of the 36 seats switched their vote.

Its survey of almost 30,000 voters found the Conservatives are on course to win 345 seats in the House of Commons, giving Johnson a majority of 40.

However, analysis for the group – which is campaigning for a second EU referendum – found that in 36 seats the Tory candidate could be defeated if 2,500 or fewer Remainers decided to switch their vote.

Overall, the campaign group said that as few as 40,704 pro-EU tactical votes in these seats could produce a hung parliament, which could in turn deliver a second referendum. According to the poll, Mr Johnson’s majority has been more than halved since a similar survey was conducted by Best for Britain a fortnight ago.

The campaign group said if Remainers were prepared to ‘hold their nose and vote for the party with the best chance of stopping the Tories’ then Mr Johnson could still be deprived of overall victory.

Jeffrey Epstein’s ‘pimp’ Ghislaine Maxwell ‘plans tell-all interview on US TV’

Published

on

By

Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged ‘pimp’ Ghislaine Maxwell is in talks with a major US television network for a tell-all interview, it is claimed.

The British socialite, accused of procuring young girls for the paedophile financier, wants to defend Prince Andrew after his disastrous Newsnight interview.

Maxwell has been in hiding since billionaire Epstein was found dead in his jail cell in August and is under investigation by the FBI. 

She is expected to say Epstein’s former sex slave Virginia Roberts, now Giuffre, is lying about having sex with the duke three times as a teenager.

It comes after a photo emerged showing Epstein, Maxwell and disgraced film mogul Harvey Weinstein together at Princess Beatrice’s 18th birthday party in 2006.  

A source told The Sun: ‘Ghislaine is in hiding and knows the only way to stop being hunted is to speak on her own terms.

‘She will do a sit-down interview with a big US network and defend the duke. Apparently, she’ll say Virginia Giuffre is lying and Andrew never had sex with her.’

The 57-year-old daughter of disgraced tycoon Robert Maxwell is said to be in constant contact with the prince.

Last week it was reported that the pair have been communicating by phone and email through the scandal over the prince’s links to the convicted sex offender. 

They claim there is an ‘unswerving loyalty’ between the pair, who both deny any wrongdoing despite their close relationships with Epstein. 

Mother-of-three Ms Roberts, 36, has stated that Maxwell should be ‘rotting in jail’. 

The photo of Epstein, Maxwell and Weinstein was taken in the grounds of Windsor Castle.

At the time of the party, hosted by Andrew, US police had already raided Epstein’s Florida mansion and prepared an arrest warrant for him to answer child-sex allegations.

Andrew, 59, has said he was not aware of the investigation or the warrant when he invited Epstein to Beatrice’s party, adding that he had been invited as socialite Miss Maxwell’s guest.

But the photo, which was published in the Sun on Sunday, raises fresh questions about the prince’s relationships with the rich and powerful and his apparent willingness to invite them into the heart of the British Establishment.

Hollywood mogul Weinstein’s rape trial is due to start next month. The 67-year-old has denied the charges against him, including a sexual assault in 2006 – the same year as Beatrice’s party. 

The Duke of York was forced to step back from his public duties last month following a disastrous television interview about his friendship with Epstein.

A lawyer for several Epstein victims told The Sun on Sunday that a ‘fairly extensive investigation’ was under way into the financier’s depraved abuse of teenage girls by the time of Beatrice’s coming-of-age party.

Jack Scarola said: ‘It is absolutely certain that at the time of the Windsor Castle gathering, Jeffrey Epstein was aware an investigation was going on – a search warrant had been executed on his home.

‘I will leave it to others to judge whether it goes to the heart of concerns about the conduct of Prince Andrew.’

Several women want Andrew to be called as a witness over their claims they were abused by Epstein. They say the duke saw young women giving massages at Epstein’s homes in Florida and the Caribbean.

He has denied he saw anything suspicious and has repeatedly denied claims by one of the women, Virginia Roberts, that she was forced to have sex with him when she was 17.

The scandal forced the prince to resign from his patronages and royal duties, although there were reports yesterday that he planned to make his first public appearance on Christmas Day, by joining the Queen and other Royal Family members at the church service at Sandringham in Norfolk.

A Buckingham Palace spokesman told The Sunday Times: ‘The Duke of York is still part of the Royal Family and you can expect to see him at family occasions.’

The Palace refused to comment on the photograph of Epstein, Miss Maxwell and Weinstein at Beatrice’s party, which was a ‘private event’. The Queen threw the £400,000 party at Windsor for her granddaughter, although she and Prince Philip did not attend.

Some 400 guests were invited to the Victorian-themed masked ball, including Prince Edward and wife Sophie, and Peter and Zara Phillips.

Beatrice posed for a formal photograph with her father Andrew, mother Sarah Ferguson and younger sister Eugenie, taken against the same backdrop as the Epstein photograph.

Beatrice wore a £10,000 blue taffeta gown designed by Georgina Chapman, who later married Hollywood producer Weinstein.

Weinstein, who wore formal evening dress, has since been accused of sexually abusing and harassing several actresses and aides. He denies the allegations.

Epstein, who wore a US Navy dress uniform to the party, was found dead in his prison cell while awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges.

His former girlfriend Miss Maxwell, who was pictured wearing a gold mask and feathered red head-dress, was invited to meet Andrew at Buckingham Palace earlier this year. During his disastrous Emily Maitlis interview on Newsnight, the duke denied they had discussed the Epstein scandal or Miss Roberts’ claims that she was forced into having sex with Andrew.

Miss Roberts, now a married mother-of-three, gave an extraordinary interview to the BBC’s Panorama – aired last week – in which she said she was ‘abused’ by Andrew and left feeling ‘ashamed and dirty’. 

Her lawyer Mr Scarola said: ‘We want Prince Andrew to give evidence under oath and tell us all he knew about Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell.’

Andrew has said he would co-operate with law enforcement authorities ‘if required’. 

How Duke of York’s meetings with Epstein including after he was sent to jail caused Prince Andrew decades of trouble 

1999

Andrew first meets Epstein, reportedly introduced through his friendship with Ghislaine Maxwell, the daughter of newspaper tycoon Robert Maxwell.

Andrew welcomes Epstein to the Queen’s private Scottish retreat in Aberdeenshire. Andrew later says he sees Epstein ‘infrequently’, adding ‘probably no more than only once or twice a year’.

2000

Andrew and Ms Maxwell are seen on holiday with Epstein at Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Florida.

Epstein and Ms Maxwell attend a party at Windsor Castle hosted by the Queen to mark Andrew’s 40th birthday, the Princess Royal’s 50th, the Queen Mother’s 100th and Princess Margaret’s 70th.

2001

Virginia Roberts claims to have had sex with Andrew ‘three times, including one orgy’, with the first encounter allegedly taking place in Ms Maxwell’s London townhouse. Ms Roberts claims to have had sex with Andrew on two more occasions, at Epstein’s New York home and at an ‘orgy’ on his private island in the Caribbean.

Andrew says he never had sex with Roberts and does not even remember ever meeting her. 

No one but Roberts has gone on the record to verify her claims about Andrew specifically but she is among a group of Epstein victims  now demanding apologies and answers from anyone who was associated with his lifestyle. Her ex-boyfriend from Tony Figueroa has said he knew of the photograph of them.  

2008

Epstein admits prostituting minors and is sentenced to 18 months in prison.

He had negotiated a deal for himself which involved pleading guilty in exchange for just one year of prison time, during which he was allowed to leave to go to work everyday.  

2010

Epstein is released from jail. Andrew is photographed with the disgraced Epstein in New York’s Central Park.

Years after the visit footage emerged, reportedly shot on December 6 2010, showing him inside Epstein’s Manhattan mansion, from where he is seen looking out from a large door of the property waving a woman goodbye after Epstein leaves to get into a chauffeur-driven car.

Andrew said in his 2019 BBC interview that he went to visit Epstein to end their friendship. 

‘I took the judgement call that because this was serious, and I felt that doing it over the telephone was the chicken’s way of doing it, I had to go and see him and talk to him,’ he said. He previously described the trip as ‘a mistake.’

Buckingham Palace denies Andrew has committed any impropriety after he is named in US court documents related to Epstein. A woman, later named in reports as Ms Roberts, alleges in papers filed in Florida that she was forced to have sex with Andrew when she was 17, which is under the age of consent in the state.

At the World Economic Forum in Davos, Andrew, in his first public engagement since he was embroiled in the allegations, responds, saying: ‘Firstly I think I must, and want, for the record, to refer to the events that have taken place in the last few weeks.

‘I just wish to reiterate, and to reaffirm, the statements that have already been made on my behalf by Buckingham Palace.’

In April the claims against Andrew are struck from US civil court records following a federal judge’s ruling.

Newly released legal documents show that Johanna Sjoberg, another alleged Epstein victim, claimed Andrew touched her breast while sitting on a couch inside the US billionaire’s Manhattan apartment in 2001.

Buckingham Palace said the allegations are ‘categorically untrue’.

Epstein is found dead in his jail cell on August 10, having killed himself after being charged with sex trafficking.

Later that month a pilot on Epstein’s private jet claims Andrew was a passenger on past flights with the financier and Ms Roberts.

The Sun newspaper reported that David Rodgers said in a testimony released in August that Epstein, Andrew and the-then 17-year-old travelled to the US Virgin Islands on April 11 2001.

Buckingham Palace describes the evidence statement as having ‘a number of inconsistencies’ and said that Andrew was on a different continent in some cases.

Following Epstein’s death, a statement from the palace says that Andrew is ‘appalled by the recent reports of Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged crimes’.

Breaking his silence on the issue for the first time since 2015, Andrew then releases a statement on August 24 saying: ‘At no stage during the limited time I spent with him (Epstein) did I see, witness or suspect any behaviour of the sort that subsequently led to his arrest and conviction.’ 

In November Andrew spoke publicly for the first time in a ‘no holds barred’ interview about his relationship with Epstein – denying he ever had sex with the financier’s ‘sex slave’ Virginia Roberts. 

The Duke of York faced questions on BBC Newsnight where he maintained he did not recall meeting Miss Roberts and did not spend time with her at Tramp Nightclub in London on March 10 in 2001 after which she claims the pair first had sex.

The duke denied he slept with her on three separate occasions, saying the encounter in 2001 did not happen as he had taken his daughter Princess Beatrice to Pizza Express in Woking for a party, and they spent the rest of the day together.
