Ok….I spoke to my baby @princess_of_da_south & the rest of the Harris Clan in our family group chat about the @theshaderoom’s re-post of my baby’s tweet. So since our very public mishap (we comically refer to as”hymengate”??‍♂️) @theshaderoom reposts all my baby girl’s tweets and IG posts and casually insinuates or assumes she’s referring to me. We usually just dismiss it or laugh it off cause only WE KNOW WHATS UP WIT US‼️ But this time my baby expresses aggravation to us about it so with her permission I’m sharing our exchange. FYI Deyjah Pooh is obviously Deyjah, Money Man is my son @domani (he’s been saved in my phone as that since he first got his phone at 9-10yrs old?)…& my msgs are in blue. I’m sharing this with you all in hope of creating context that will redirect the agendas & intentions of @theshaderoom and their followers when they think of me&my baby girls relationship. That shit still on YALL MINDS… WE MOVED ON LONG AGO… Hopefully now you can too. Love and Respect ✊?

The Shade Room reposted the tweet and assumed Deyjah was talking about her father. The 19-year-old makes clear in her father’s post that she doesn’t respond to the outlet’s inquiries about her family life because they purposely takes her comments  out of context.

“I’m sharing this with you all in hope of creating context that will redirect the agendas & intentions of @theshaderoom and their followers when they think of me&my baby girls relationship,” T.I. wrote. “That sh*t still on YALL MINDS… WE MOVED ON LONG AGO… Hopefully now you can too. Love and Respect”

Tip is referring to comments he made last November when he revealed that he used to accompany Deyjah to the gynecologist for virginity testing.

His daughter later sparked rumors that she was sexually abused when she was 11-years-old. 

Deyjah shared her emotions in a post on social media, in which she criticized Black families for ignoring childhood abuse and protecting the abusers, SandraRose reported. 

“Ok I’m so tired of how the black community doesn’t speak up on the things that happens in the family …………… stop protecting the men and women that touch children (sic)!!!!!,” she wrote. 

Her comments prompted speculation that someone in the family sexually abused her. Many have been side-eyeing T.I.
