T.I. praises model daughter Deyjah for defending her brother like a boss in viral footage
T.I’s oldest daughter Deyjah Harris is mostly perceived as shy and easygoing, but she proved recently that there’s a Knight-In-Shiny-Armor side to her as well, and her rapper dad couldn’t be prouder.
The “Dime Trap” rapper took to Instagram a day ago with a clip showing Deyjah, 17, defending her 14-year-old brother, King Harris.
The kids were shopping in a store when Instagram comedian Funny Marco tried to pull a prank on them. The joke involved Funny Marco approaching random shoppers and accusing them of doing something wrong.
“What you did was rude and disrespectful,” Marco said to King.
Last November, T.I and Tiny had a meltdown in Deyjah’s comment section
“What?” the confused teenager asked as his sister looked their way. Deyjah had been squatting to check out some items but couldn’t help noticing something was wrong.
She stood immediately, adopting an unmistakable no-nonsense posture as she asked the comedian: “What you talking ‘bout? What did he do?”
When Marco only repeated that King was rude and disrespectful, Deyjah asked in a stern tone:
“But what did he do, is the question.”
A proud T.I. shared the clip on his page where it has since garnered over three million likes, and raved in the caption:
“My baby @princess_of_da_south DONT PLAY u hear me?!?!?! @funnymarco u was gin get your unadulterated issue from this bunch sir!!! #UgotTheRightOnesBabyyyyUhhhHuhh -RayCharles voice.”
Deyjah is T.I’s daughter from a previous relationship with ex-girlfriend, Ms. Niko. The rapper also has two sons, Domani and Messiah, with another ex.
Together, T.I and his wife, Tiny Harris, have two sons, King and Major, and one daughter, Heiress. Tiny also has an older daughter, Zonnique Pullins, from a previous relationship.
Zonnique previously gave fans a hint into Deyjah’s fiery side when she picked out the teenager as most likely to defend her.
In a promotional clip for “T.I. and Tiny: Friends and Family Hustle,” Zonnique revealed that if she ever needed someone to fight for her, she’d call her sister, Deyjah.
“Deyjah seems really quiet. She seems shy, but she’s not at all,” said Zonnique. “She knows how to fight because all of her life, she’s had to fight all her brothers, and I’ve seen her fight.”
But besides being feisty, T.I’s daughter is also a stunning model that advertises numerous fashion brands on her Instagram page where she has over one million followers.
Last November, T.I and Tiny had a meltdown in Deyjah’s comment section after she posted a picture of herself in a crop top and matching skirt.
While tons of followers could not help observing how much the teen has grown, her father and stepmom were thinking the same thing.
“Lord have mercy. Father time, please slow down,” commented T.I, and Tiny added: “Why are u so [expletive] gorgeous.”
