"She says I am overprotective," Iman told Porter. "But I told her, this can all wait, it isn't going anywhere. Have a life that is private while you can, because one day soon it is going to be public, so enjoy this."
In February Lexi followed in her father's footsteps by posting a song she had written on Instagram.
Even though she was "absolutely terrified to post" it, she said in the caption: "I keep going back and forth between hating it and liking it but f—k it.
"So here's a snippet of an untitled, unfinished, very drunken rough take of a song I'm proud of on a good day."
