Boosie Badazz has opened up about his daughter Poison Ivi coming out as a lesbian, saying he and his family are struggling to “accept” her sexuality due to their religious beliefs, but still love her regardless.
The Baton Rouge native joined DJ Vlad for another explosive interview, where he reflected on the moment he learned about his oldest daughter’s sexual preferences even though he has vehemently bashed homosexuality in the past.
“Even though it won’t be accepted as far as — because I don’t want nobody in my other family to think it’s okay,” he explained. “But what she does, we’re gonna love her to death. But at the same time, our Southern family has never been that way.
“It’s never been accepted. But at the same time, she’s grown and she can do what the hell she wants. She’s old enough to know what she wants and that’s her.”
Boosie continued: “I learned of it through social media. Like you, I woke up to it… She never came to me and talked to me about relationships.”
“It’s sad how y’all trying to force this gay stuff on the world,” he said in 2021. “It’s sad, bro, how y’all tryin’ to ban artists. Y’all sad, bro. It’s sad, bro. In 10 years, it ain’t gonna be normal for a kid to be straight.
“Y’all tryin’ force it on these kids. You pushin’ it on the artists, push it on all the biggest artists. You know why? ‘Cause the kids love those artists.”
The 40-year-old’s daughter, Poison Ivi (real Iviona Hatch), who is also a talented rapper, came out publicly to confirm her relationship with her girlfriend for the first time in January.
