T.I. Seemingly Apologizes To Daughter About Hymen Controversy In Response To Kobe Bryant's Death

TI apologizes to daughter Deyjah in response to Kobe Bryant's death.

Like many, T.I. has been greatly affected by Kobe Bryant’s tragic death.

One day after the devastating helicopter crash that took the lives of the NBA legend, his 13-year-old daughter Gianna, and several others, the rapper took to Instagram to pen a special message to his daughters in which he apologized for his “imperfections.”

Under a series of photos of himself with his 18-year-old daughter Deyjah Harris and his stepdaughter Zonnique Pullins, the 39-year-old wrote:

“I love you girls more than my vocabulary will allow me to express. You have grown so much right before my very eyes & blossomed into strong, brilliantly opinionated, independent young women. I’m so proud of you both and I love you to no end, more than you’ll ever know.” 

He went on to apologize for past “misunderstandings” — an apparent reference to the controversial comments he made about obsessively getting Deyjah’s hymen checked to ensure she was still a virgin. 

The Grammy winner continued:

“Please forgive me for any and all imperfections that cause misunderstandings between us…. Charge my mind, not my heart. You see Life may throw us curveballs & deal us some pretty bad hands at times. But rest assured, you’ll NEVER find yourself in a place too high or low for me to be there to catch you when you fall. I just Can’t let another second go by without letting you know while we’re still here in this life together…. You have ALL MY LOVE FOR ALL MY LIFE…&AFTER @princess_of_da_south@zonniquejailee.”

Awww. That’s the silver lining of any monumental tragedy like this: it reminds us how precious life is.

T.I. went on to share a touching tribute to his wife, Tiny, writing: 

I know I’ve had my moments, but… despite all my shortcomings & transgressions the fact remains….You Give me a thousand choices & I’d choose you every time. I couldn’t imagine living in a world without you…or leaving you and the kids to have to live without me. I’m determined to make you happy by any means necessary… LIKE IT OR NOT!!! To love, cherish, protect, provide, & whatever df else it takes… Forever!!!”

The performer didn’t forget about his other children. In a message to his sons Messiah, 19, Domani, 18, Clifford, 15, and Major, 11, he wrote:

“I’m so proud of each and every last one of you guys. You each somehow represent different parts of me that you’ve made your own. I’m impressed by your growth & maturity & honored to lead,guide& direct you as you learn to master your destiny… Regardless of our discrepancies & misunderstandings, trust and believe I’ll do any and everything possible to help you perfect your gifts. You’ll NEVER have to go at it & figure shit out alone!!! Love You All So Much!!!”

Last but not least, the star posted a tribute to his 3-year-old daughter, Heiress, writing:

“Since I know you can’t read yet I’ll just post one of my favorite videos of my baby girl & big girl Violeta!!! Love you both to no end & I don’t know where I’d be without you”

The love was returned by most of T.I.’s kids. Zonnique replied to her stepfather’s post, writing:

 “I love you pops????.”

Deyjah, however, is still not following her famous dad on social media after the hymen controversy last year. Hopefully, they hugged it out in person!
