Lil wayne was a cunning fox when it came to his relationship with his ex-girlfriend and R&B singer Nivea.
According to the singer, Weezy became interested in her after watching the video for her 2002 hit “Don’t Mess With My Man”. the Young Money Leader contacted his record company for a meeting to collaborate on a song, but Wayne had other plans for Nivea.
“He said, ‘I don’t want to do a song with you. I just want your number,'” she recalls.
Eventually Nivea and Wayne “just clicked” and started dating. The 39-year-old artist added that Wayne had convinced her to quit the music industry and be in a relationship with him. “He said, ‘Come with me, I’ve got you.’
Nivea agreed and sadly sent a letter to her label Jive informing them that she is quitting music. Wayne also promised to help manage Nivea’s career, while “I’m just sitting there as a housewife,” she added.
Then, while the couple lived in a house in New Orleans, Weezy decided he wanted to move into an apartment. Unbeknownst to Nivea, Wayne wanted her to live in the new apartment so that he could move Toya Johnson and their daughter Reginae back to the house.
“We move out of the house and buy an apartment. I didn’t know he did this to get Toya back into the house, ”she said. “I was heartbroken,” Nivea continues. “I was screaming and insulting him.”
Despite the breakdown of their relationship, Nivea was able to befriend Toya as well as Wayne’s other former girlfriend. Lauren London. The couple bonded to each other when Nivea was pregnant with Wayne’s son, Neal, who was around the same time Lauren was also pregnant with Wayne’s son, Kam.
