“My mom identified the bodies and I just got numb,” she said. “It’s a pain I don’t think I’ve ever felt in my life.” In a recent interview with People, Wright condemned gun violence while going through her shock. “It was the worst news ever,” she said. “Murders happen every day and this is another dark night in New Orleans. You hear about stories like this all the time, but it doesn’t really hit you until you get that call. It hits so close to home.”

Wright also gave insight on Lil Wayne’s battle with Birdman and their possible chance at romance.
