"I Didn't Wanna Ruin The Fun For People I Was Hanging With"

T.I.’s daughter, Deyjah Harris, did not go to her prom. The Friends and Family Hustle star recently revealed how strict her parents were when she was growing up in a series of tweets.


“I’ve never been to a football game, went to a REAL party (not birthday parties), prom, or any other dances during high school,” Deyjah revealed. “My parents were pretty strict,” the young adult continued. “If I did get permission to go somewhere, it would kinda be like a ‘someone/security needs to go with you.’ I didn’t wanna ruin the fun for people I was hanging with or have them feeling like I thought I was better than them because of it.”

Fans saw a bit of T.I.’s parenting practices on display earlier this year. T.I. and Deyjah were challenged to hash out their differences in front of the world after the infamous “hymen-gate” scandal.


Friends and Family Hustle showed Deyjah struggling to view her father in the same light after he shared private information about her during a podcast interview. Deyjah and T.I. ultimately worked through their differences after he received a lecture from Deyjah’s mom, Ms. Niko, during a radio show segment.

Deyjah Harris has been a strong advocate for mental health since graduating high school and celebrating her eighteenth birthday. It was just a few months ago that Deyjah shared an update on her YouTube channel meant to encourage those dealing with mental struggles.
