TI On Being Overprotective: I Need To Protect My Girls From Heartbreak

Publish date:

During a recent episode of T.I. & Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle, the rapper opened up about why he is so fiercely protective of his daughters.

T.I. has repeatedly faced criticism for having double standards when it comes to the rules he sets for his sons versus those set for his daughter, but he explained why he does what he does.

"To be honest with you, I only feel the need to protect the girls from heartbreak," he shared. So for me, it's about making sure that my daughters grow up as happy and unencumbered by outsiders tweaking their emotions as possible. That doesn't mean that I don't want my daughters to date or have experiences. It just means I know that they will hold onto those experiences and I don't know how that will translate when they come out of it."
