When Brelyn wedded the groom, Tim Bowman Jr - a gospel artist, she presented her father the 'certificate of purity', after undergoing examination by a doctor who proved her hymen had not been broken.

The photo of the bride and father posing with the certificate went viral, and she was called out by some angry social media users who felt she was showing off.
