T.I. discusses controversial hymen check comments on 'Red Table Talk'

T.I. and Tiny sat down with Jada Pinkett-Smith and her mom, Adrienne, for a "Red Table Talk" discussion on Monday to talk about what T.I. said on the "Ladies Like Us" podcast a couple weeks ago. 

T.I. was the center of controversy after saying he tags along with his now 18-year-old, Deyjah, to the gynecologist each year to ensure she's still a virgin by the doctor doing a hymen check.

"I came to clear up any misconceptions that have been surrounding how we interact and parent and what is appropriate and inappropriate," T.I. starts off by saying.
