Chrissy Teigen Was Just As Weirded Out By T.I.’s Comments About His Daughter’s Virginity As Everyone Else

T.I. dropped a bombshell on this week’s episode of the Ladies Like Us podcast, when the rapper freely admitted to the entire world that he accompanies his (now, 18-year-old) daughter Deyjah to annual gynecologist visits to ensure that her that her hymen is still intact, supposedly confirming that she is still a virgin. (The episode appears to have since been removed.)

However instead of accepting his Father of the Year award, T.I. must have been gobsmacked when his name began trending for this reason, as people slammed his heavy-handed control over his daughter’s sexual health. Not to mention, his unscientific argument that virginity is directly related to an intact hymen or the lack of one.

To the surprise of no one, the prolific and outspoken tweeter Chrissy Teigen weighed in on the subject. “Def did not think we would be talking about hymens today, or T.I.,” she first tweeted, echoing what everyone else was thinking.

Later that night, after the discourse had been completely exhausted Teigen followed up with another couple of tweets. “Alright it’s time to mute ‘hymen,'” she wrote. Shortly after, she responded to another tweet about how people’s parents found out they lost their virginity. “Actually I have IVF babies so maybe I have never had sex ever,” she quipped.

T.I.’s former mentoree, Iggy Azalea, also commented on the controversy in a series of since-deleted tweets. “Unfortunately, he is dead serious,” she tweeted, for anyone who thought the rapper’s comments might have been made in jest.

“Really I wish the women who interviewed him would have said something to him. He has serious control issues with women in all aspects of his life & needs therapy,” she continued. Azalea and T.I. cut professional ties in 2015, and there has recently been drama between the two.

For anyone who missed T.I.’s full remarks, it was quickly evident that he was indeed definitely not joking when he explained his “logic” to the podcast hosts, as you can see from the following transcript:

“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 wouldn’t 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.’”

I wish it ended there, but he continued and said, “I will say as of her 18th birthday, her hymen is still intact.” And in case all that wasn’t bad enough, he then shamed virgins because “they’re no fun” and nobody would want to be with his daughter if she’s still a virgin. He concluded, “Who wants a virgin? Like really? All that work.”

Meanwhile, someone thought to check in with poor Deyjah in all this mess, and well, her Twitter likes do indeed say it all.
