'Please Forgive Me': Rapper T.I. Apologises To Daughters Following Kobe Bryant's Death
Following controversial comments he made about his 18-year-old daughter Deyjah’s virginity last year, rapper T.I. has now shared a heartfelt Instagram post dedicated to his daughters in the wake of the Kobe Bryant tragedy.
Seemingly reacting to the tragic event, in which the basketball legend, his 13-year-old daughter Gianna and seven others were killed in a helicopter crash in Calabasas on Jan 26, the rapper -- real name Clifford Harris -- took a moment to express his love for daughters.
“I love you girls more than my vocabulary will allow me to express,” T.I. began.
“You have grown so much right before my very eyes & blossomed into strong, brilliantly opinionated, independent young women. I’m so proud of you both and I love you to no end, more than you’ll ever know.”
“Please forgive me for any and all imperfections that cause misunderstandings between us…. Charge my mind, not my heart,” he wrote, sharing several photographs of the girls.
"You see Life may throw us curveballs & deal us some pretty bad hands at times. But rest assured, you’ll NEVER find yourself in a place too high or low for me to be there to catch you when you fall.”
“I just can’t let another second go by without letting you know while we’re still here in this life together…. You have ALL MY LOVE FOR ALL MY LIFE…&AFTER‼️” he concluded.
Stepdaughter Zonnique replied to the post, writing “I love you pops.”
Last year, the "Live Your Life" rapper received major backlash after he revealed during an interview on podcast 'Ladies Like Us' that he would take “yearly trips to the gynecologist” in order to check on the status of his daughter’s virginity.
Addressing the drama days later on Jada Pinkett Smith's 'Red Table Talk', T.I. apologised to his daughter.
“She did have a problem with me talking about it however, and I understand that, and I am incredibly apologetic to her for that,” he said at the time. “She understands my intentions and she knows who I am, who I’ve always been.”
