‘I’m Not Me Without Him:’ Karrine Steffans Speaks On Strange Relationship With Lil Wayne And Leaving Her Husband
Karrine “Superhead” Steffans, the notorious video vixen who has had no qualms about publicly discussing her former relationships with high profile rappers since the release of her 2005 tell-all, Confessions of a Video Vixen, seems to have no issues with discussing her current ones either. In a recent interview with Vibe Vixen, the three-time New York Times bestselling author held nothing back as she discussed her multiple marriages, her divorce, and her ongoing relationship and love for Lil Wayne.
On still being in a relationship with Lil Wayne although she’s a married woman:
We were together up until a couple of months ago, while I’m still married to my second husband, while I’m still in Vegas with Lil Wayne. All this is going on at the same time.
On remarrying her current husband to get away from her ex-hubby, Darius McCrary:
My first husband [Darius McCrary] and I were good friends for like eight years before we started dating, then we got married and that marriage was tumultuous. It ended in divorce but we were still living together after our divorce, then all of a sudden I up and married someone last year unbeknownst to [Darius], just so I could end that relationship. The person that I’m married to now, I don’t even know this person. It was really just for show… It was very difficult to break those ties. But that didn’t even work because my first husband came back.I can’t shake Darius to save my f***ing life. Wayne has been in my life this whole time.
the status of she and Wayne’s current relationship:
Wayne and I have kept a relationship through my two husbands, his three kids, three additional baby mamas, three of his albums, three of my books, three of his arrests, one year in prison and three engagements on his part. We are indestructible and I find it fascinating. I’m in constant contact with this person every day, every other day. He is a part of my being. I’m not me without him. He makes me very happy, [but] I couldn’t be with Wayne. I couldn’t live Wayne’s life… That relationship is everything to me, but it’s not what people think it is. It’s not sexual and it’s not financial. It is very spiritual and he’s like my battery pack. When I’m down, when I’m in a really rough space, he always pulls me out of that and he has no idea what he’s done for me.
Although the reformed video vixen says she couldn’t “be with Wayne” it is interesting that she left her husband and not long ago, Lil Wayne told MTV‘s Sway that he plans on seeing himself “happily married in the near future.” I wonder how his alleged girlfriend/fiancee feels about this “spiritual” relationship Karrine has with Wayne.
What do you think about Karrine talking about Wayne all the time?
