Lil Wayne‘s ex-wife, Toya speaks to HoneyMag about what she has learned from her past-relationship with Wayne, how she and their daughter, Reginae feel about Wayne in prison, and how they keep in touch regularly.
Toya, what have you’ve learned from your relationship with Lil Wayne?
I learned a lot. I watched Wayne go into different phases. Each phase I learned something new. As far as his love for women; he’s not really a one woman man. I had to deal with that. I am kind of happy because he made me stronger. No BS. I learned a lot from being Lil Wayne’s wife. As long as I’ve held grudges I’ve learned to let it go.
Lil Wayne is incarcerated right now. What are your thoughts on that? How are you feeling?
No one wants to see anyone in jail, especially their kids’ father and husband. Wayne and I have a great relationship. That’s just not anywhere that I want to see him. He’s never not been accessible. As long as we’ve been talking or dating I’ve never not been able to pick up the phone and call him no matter what is going on in my life. Now he’s locked up and it’s not like that anymore. As far as my daughter, her and her father have a great relationship. She talks to him every day after school. She can still talk to him but now it’s on a schedule with calls. It’s going to be a change for these 8 months.
Did you call on Tiny to help you deal with your feelings? She went through the same thing with T.I.
Tiny has been very supportive. From watching her situation with Tip and with me being there for her, she just talked to me telling me to write him, go visit him, help him get through this. That’s what they need; letters and pictures and visits to help them make the time go by faster. That makes it easier on the baby, everybody. I had my daughter write her first letter yesterday.
How is Reginae dealing with the whole situation?
She’s saddened by the whole situation but we talk to her about it. Her dad talks to her. When he was going back and forth to court, we were all there: me, his other baby mamas, and the kids. Just being there for him, supporting him. This last time we didn’t go because it was so back and forth. We’d get there and he doesn’t go to jail. So this last time I didn’t let my daughter go because she was just up and down. It was like an emotional roller coaster for her. She was like, ‘I just wish I could have seen my dad.’
Also, season 2 of Tiny‘s and Toya‘s reality TV show will be premiering on April 13th at 10PM on BET. Do you want LilWayneHQ to start posting each episode on here when they air, or not ❓ Leave a comment below letting us know.
