Ask any of Lil Wayne‘s three baby mamas what they think about his paternal skills and you’ll receive the fixed answer: “He’s really great with his kids.” So then why is Weezy’s first child, 12-year-old Reginae Carter not allowed to visit her daddy on Father’s Day?
“That’s no place for a kid to go,” says Wayne’s ex-wife LaToya Carter. “[Wayne and I] just decided not to let her go [to Riker’s Island] period. She’s never been. He makes sure he talks to his daughter everyday, talking and writing is enough.”
Though Wayne’s toothy-grinned daughter won’t be heading over the East River anytime soon—or ever—that doesn’t mean the father of four will be left empty-handed for the holiday.
“[Reginae’s] writing her father a letter and she took pictures for him. When I go visit, I’ll bring it to him,” says Toya. “We may spend [the day] with my father or just together.” —Tracy Garraud
