Nivea is opening about her former relationship with Lil Wayne and unlikely friendship with Lauren London, who was pregnant with the rapper’s child at the same time she was also carrying their son.
In an interview with VLADTV published on Wednesday, the Grammy-nominated 'Don't Mess with My Man' singer first explained that she and Lil Wayne (né Dwayne Michael Carter Jr.) got back together following her divorce from Terius “The-Dream” Nash in 2007. The two had previously dated and gotten engaged in 2002, but Lil Wayne called off the engagement a year later.
She said on the day it was confirmed that she was indeed expecting, she learned that Lauren London was also carrying Wayne's child, just three months ahead of her. Initially, Nivea said she was accepting of their situation, but after a while, it began to be too much and ultimately, it led to the demise of her relationship with Wayne. However, she and Lauren are close friends now.
“It was very crushing, then she and I became very close, ironically, after he and I decided to let it go,” she said. “She was a real good friend to me during my mother’s death. I know that sounds weird, but we were two people going through something that was along the lines of humiliating. It felt like, who else could you share this oddly unique situation with?”
