NEW YORK CITY -

Rapper T.I. is speaking out about his controversial comments made about his daughter's hymen.

The rapper defended himself on Red Table Talk, saying it was all a joke.

Earlier this month the rapper disclosed on the “Ladies Like Us" podcast that he goes to the gynecologist with his 18-year-old daughter every year to make sure her hymen is "still intact."

He and his wife Tiny were featured in Monday’s episode of Red Table Talk where he said he has since apologized to his daughter for his comments, which received massive backlash from Planned Parenthood and many others.
