T.I.'s step-daughter spoke candidly about the rapper's parenting style and revealed that he treats his daughters differently from the way he treats his sons.


Zonnique Pullins opened up to Hollywood Life about being the step-daughter of rapper T.I. and how his parenting time can be a bit overbearing for the women in the family, she revealed:

"Now that I’m a little older it's gotten a little better for me. But he is definitely super overprotective."


In their blended family of six children, T.I and Tiny Harris both have children from previous relationships. Zonnique admitted that since she and her sister Dejah Harris are older, she is worried about her youngest sister, Heiress.

She told Hollywood Life that she hoped T.I. would be a bit more lenient with Heiress than he was with her and Dejah, but she suspects that his overprotectiveness would probably be worse.


Zonnique revealed that growing up in the Harris household, she dealt with a lot of double standards from the rules set by her step-father, she explained:

"[T.I. has] always been super protective over the girls. And it always seemed like the boys could just do whatever."


Zonnique shared that T.I. gets a lot of pushback from Tiny over his differential treatment of their children.

She said they have often argued about him allowing his sons to have their girlfriends over at their house when his dating rules are a lot stricter with his girls.

T.I faced backlash when his style of helicopter parenting was made public in comments he made about

to make sure she was still a virgin.

In November 2019, he went on an episode for the podcast "Life Hack' and admitted that he asks his daughter's doctor to check that her hymen is still intact. After public criticisms, he apologized and explained his statements.


Zonnique is currently in a serious relationship with a rapper named Bandhunata Izzy and revealed that both Tiny and T.I. like him.

However, she said T.I. does occasionally take her boyfriend aside for long talks, and she feels that he is always keeping a close eye on him.
