Rumor has it that 31 year old R&B singer/baby maker Nivea is with child once again. And the streets are saying that it’s Lil Wayne’s baby. Well, maybe it’s not so much the streets as it is Nivea herself. Supposedly, at Nivea’s recent birthday celebration, someone overheard her telling another guest that Wayne was excited about the new baby. If this is true this will be Nivea’s fifth child. She has three from her marriage to The Dream and one from Lil Wayne born in 2009.
You may not remember but Nivea was actually with Lil Wayne before she married The Dream. Back in July 2003, she told Sister2Sister Magazine how Wayne proposed to her around Christmas time in 2002:
[He said] ‘I got your Christmas present with me and you’re gonna love it. It’s gonna make you smile. He got down on his knee and he was like, ‘I know I’m young, but I’ve been through enough relationships to know and understand the meaning of what love is.’ He was just perfect. He told me that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with me and he loved me. It was snot and tears at the same time.”
She went on to tell the magazine that if she didn’t marry Wayne, she would die a single woman. But that’s not exactly how it went down. When Wayne called off their engagement in December of 2003, to rekindle his relationship with ex-wife Antonia Wright (Toya), Nivea moved on and ended up marrying The Dream in 2004. The couple had a daughter in 2005 and twin sons in 2006. They divorced in 2007 when The Dream claimed that he “didn’t want to take this person [Nivea] and treat them a certain way based on what I was changing into, based on being bitter.”
Severe side eye.
After that, Nivea reconnected with Wayne, though he had gotten his ex girlfriend, Lauren London pregnant. After Nivea gave birth to their son Neal Carter in 2009, the couple got engaged again. And broke it off in 2010. On her Myspace page, she confirmed that Young Money singer Shanell Woodget was the reason behind their split. “Mood: betrayed Wanting everyone to know that Shanell (the background Slore that sings with Lil Wayne) is a piece of trash and not to be respected!”
Man what a story. This is certainly a VH1 movie…
