Grammy-winning rapper T.I. doesn’t play around when it comes to his family and how they’re covered in the media. The King of the South has stepped up to address gossip publication The Shade Room and its decision to dig into his daughter Deyjah Imani Harris‘ social media posts.
TI Blasts Shade Room
On Monday, the rap heavyweight hit up his Instagram page and fully went at the popular rumors-driven publication’s online presence. He also took things further by sharing a private message he had with his daughter over TSR’s focus on her.
“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 ✊🏽” -T.I.’s Instagram
Monday afternoon, T.I. responded to The Shade Room focusing on a social media post Deyjah. The rap star even suggested TSR went way too far and created a misleading post.
“@theshaderoom Y’all reaching. Every adult felt this way as an adolescent at some point in life. Only difference here is…she’s TI’s daughter. Let he LIVE Cuzz…. she finding her place in the world & doesn’t deserve to be under the microscope every step of the way. I can handle that pressure & I welcome it,so apply it to ME… leave her tf ALONE please. Sincerely, A loving Father” -T.I.
