Deyjah isn't siding with her dad (Picture: princess_of_da_south – Getty) T.I. is catching major heat for his admission that he takes his daughter to the gynaecologist every year to check that her hymen intact. And while the rapper claimed that his daughter Deyjah was willing for her father to know if her hymen was intact (which means nothing, by the way), the 18-year-old's Twitter likes tell a different story. Deyjah has liked tweets about her father being 'possessive and controlling' following his comments on the Ladies Like Us podcast. The college student – who T.I. shares with ex Ms Niko – showed her appreciation for a number of tweets replying to posts of T.I.'s quotes claiming he accompanies his daughter to the doctor each year to ensure she is still a virgin. Deyjah liked three tweets – one reading: 'That is just possessive', another reading: 'This is disgusting, possessive and controlling *whew*', and the last which said: '"give me my results" first of all mf, those are HER results!!
Deyjah, who began college this year, has yet to comment on the drama elsewhere, but her Instagram comments have been flooded with debates over her father. – real name Clifford Harris – said on Ladies Like Us: 'Deyjah's 18, just graduated high school now and she's attending her first year of college, figuring it out for herself.

'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. added: 'I will say as of her 18th birthday, her hymen is still intact.' When the hosts told the Blurred Lines star that men would be like vultures around Deyjah, he responded: '[Virgins] no fun.
