Lil Wayne's Baby's Mamas 'Really Cool' With Each Other

With Lil Wayne having four different kids by four different women, you might think there’d be a lot of personalities to manage. But luckily the superstar hasn’t had any baby mama drama, according to his ex-wife Toya, the mother of his eldest child, Reginae.

Wayne’s other seed-bearers: actress Lauren London, singer Nivea and Sarah Chapman

"At this point it’s not about none of us," Toya told VIBE. "It’s about the kids and I would go beyond for my daughter just to put a smile on her face. I would do whatever to have her around her brothers and just be cool and cordial. That’s what people don’t get... I been knowing Nivea for a long time and Lauren’s been around for a long time. We just never really talked like that until [her] baby was born."

Toya added that her own experience not knowing her brothers and sisters has a lot to do with how she manages the relationships.

"I didn’t grow up with my dad’s kids and I don’t even know half of them and I don’t want that for Reginae," said Toya. "I want her to have a good relationship with her brothers and be able to see them whenever, go to their house, they come to my house and that’s the kind of relationship all of us have."

Although the situation might seem odd from the outside, Toya said it’s not weird for the parties involved. "Me, Lauren and Nivea are really cool and Sarah, we just met Sarah like this year. She’s cool and she bring her son over and all the kids just mix together. People just find that to be very strange and I don’t get it," said Toya.

"It’s not like I want Wayne. Some of us are really over him. We just put that to the side. We having time with the kids with their daddy. The whole situation isn’t ideal so we just gotta make the best of it. 'Oh I don’t like having my kids around her?' Nah. He just lucked up to have baby mothers that are just not on no real ignorant stuff."

To that end, Toya had nothing but kind words about Nivea’s recent video, "Love Hurts," which features a cameo from the currently incarcerated Wayne. "When we was in New York going to court with him, Niv showed it to me when we were on the plane," said Toya. "I thought it was really hot. Niv is very talented and I wanna see her come back out." —Clover Hope

Tory Lanez Sued For Alleged Attack In Miami Nightclub

Tory Lanez is facing legal trouble over an alleged altercation that went down inside Miami’s LIV nightclub last year. Christopher “Prince” Harty, an up-and-coming artist and Miami promoter who appeared on Love & Hip-Hop: Miami claims that Lanez attacked him last November.

The onetime reality star alleges that Lanez, along with his entourage and security team, punched and attacked him in the nightclub. According to reports, Prince claims to have suffered blunt force trauma to his head, neck, and chest, in addition to contusions, bruises and anxiety, as a result of the incident. He is suing for unspecified damages.

“They backed me into a corner, and once I was there, they started stomping on me, jumping me,” he recalled to NBC Miami.

He believes that the friction stemmed from an Instagram post about music. “They felt that I was insinuating that they stole the record from me, and I was just like, no, I would never do that, that was never my intention. I had no issue with him at all.”

A portion of the incident was captured on cellphone video. Prince stated that he knew Lanez prior to the run-in, and helped get him into clubs before.

His attorney, Marwan Porter of Porter Law Firm, called the violent incident “a chronic problem” with Lanez who is accused of shooting Megan Thee Stallion in July. The 28-year-old recording artist has yet to publicly address either incident.

Cardi B Opens Up About Filing For Divorce From Offset

Cardi B took to Instagram Live on Friday (Sept. 18) to air out a few things about filing for divorce from Offset.

The Bronx rapper made it clear that she didn’t file for divorce as a publicity stunt to promote her upcoming album. “I’m not doing it for clout and on top of that I don’t need stunts to sell music,” she said. “I’m not [trying to] brag but don’t ever say I’m doing anything for clout. My first album is three-times platinum and I didn’t need no stunts to do that. My [“Wap”] single is no. 1 worldwide why would I need stunts to sell music? I don’t need stunts — [especially] when it comes to family — to sell anything, so don’t play yourself.”

As for the reason for the divorce filing, the estranged couple simply grew apart. “Nothing crazy out of this world happened, sometimes people really do grow apart. I been with this man for four years. I have a kid with this man, I have a household with this man…sometimes you’re just tired of the arguments and the build up. You get tired sometimes and before something happens, you leave.”

“I just wanna' be a free bird,” Cardi said after questioning whether people secretly want infidelity to be the reason for the split.

“I am the f**king clout,” she added. “I never needed anything. I never needed no stunts to sell sh*t.Why would I need anything to sell my next album?”

Speaking of the new album, Cardi has been indecisive about choosing her next single because “WAP” did so well. “That means that my second single has to be even better.”

Towards the end of her venting session, Cardi reiterated that she’s focusing on her work, and revealed that she's starting new business for her daughter Kulture.
