Nivea has been adamant about the fact that Lil Wayne was her first big love. And while nobody has ever really questioned that, she recently decided to go into more detail about her relationship with the legendary rapper, explaining how she wrongly believed that she could handle the situation — only to realize that she could not.
Many others thought so too at the time — but their relationship ended up falling apart in the end.
According to Nivea, she was pregnant with Lil Wayne’s child at the same time as Lauren London — and that was part of the reason for her being overwhelmed by the situation.
In a new interview, she said: “Nah. It wasn’t at first. Not at first. It was very crushing. Then she and I became very close, ironically. She was a very good friend to me during my mother’s death.”
She added: “I know that sounds weird, but we were two people that were going through something that was along the lines of humiliating. It felt like who else could you share this oddly unique situation with. And in that, we connected as friends. It’s still a testament to the type of man he is because all of his baby mothers, we’re all friends.”
The R&B singer went on to share: “And then I found out the day I was confirmed pregnant with our son that he had another one three months ahead of me that should be expected three months ahead of ours. So, I’m like,’ Wow!’ Then my momma died. So, you know life.”
Later on, Nivea started dating The Dream and even went on to marry him, having three of his children.
Her marriage with The Dream was not too dreamy in the end, though, as it also ended in shambles.
However, there was a silver lining for Nivea — she managed to get back together with Lil Wayne after the whole incident, and the two were getting along just fine at that time.
Lil Wayne himself was actively interested in giving the relationship another shot, even though many believed that it was Nivea who initiated the renewal.
In any case, many of her fans kept actively following her through the whole ordeal, and though things are fine for her right now, the journey was not without its issues.
Nivea, who was absent from the public scene, is back with a new album with the support of her fans.
