Nivea opens up about her rocky relationship with Lil Wayne.
It’s no secret that Wayne and Nivea didn’t have the perfect love story. The two started dated back in 2002 and share two children together. The two were engaged to be married but things took an interesting turn.During a recent interview on Kandi Burruss’ On The Note, Nivea reveals that Lil Wayne convinced her to quit music at the height of her career.
“He said, ‘come be with me. I got you,'” Nivea recalled. She explained that she eventually sent in a letter to her label letting them know that she would be quitting music entirely as Wayne promised he would take care of her. “I’m just sitting there, like, being a housewife… and you know, Reginae for very young,” she said. “All of a sudden — this is kind of funny — he was like, ‘I ain’t never stay in an apartment before. Let’s get an apartment.’ So we move out the house and get an apartment but I never realized he did that to move Toya back in the house.”

Both Lil Wayne’s other baby mothers, Toya Wright and Lauren London showed Nivea love after this interview. Even his daughter, Reginae, chimed in. She says, “I just love you so much. One of the strongest people I know.”
