Nivea Continues To Lash Out At Christina Milian For Dating Lil Wayne, Says It’s Not “OK To Confuse The S**t Out Of Your Kids”
We told you last week that The-Dream and singer Nivea had some words for Christina Milian because of her choice to date Lil Wayne. If you’ll recall, these four individuals all have children in common, as Nivea has a son with Lil Wayne and kids with The-Dream, her ex-husband. Of course, Milian was married to The-Dream, and they have their daughter, Violet, together. In case you missed it, The-Dream said this about her decision to date the rapper even though they’re all connected:
“I think that’s what everybody was thinking when the news broke. Well, everybody was thinking that but supposedly Christina. She wasn’t thinking of that at all. I have no idea how she could NOT be thinking of that…”
And to make matters worse, Nivea agreed (reposting The-Dream’s statements), and went on to call Milian a “scarecrow.”
Fans of Milian didn’t take too kindly to Nivea’s comments and threw shade her way, but she had no problem responding back to them on Instagram. She had this to say to people so quick to defend Milian:
“Ppl ppl ppl… Its actually hilarious that the ‘offeneded’ ones believe its “cute” or “ok” to confuse the sh*t out of your kids To not know about the history we already share, with kids as half siblings…nevermind, smh but u DON’T HAVE TO COMMENT…duh”
Another individual told Nivea that Milian never did anything to her and that age the age of 35 (they were just throwing a number out there) she should do better. Because of her comments, that person said that they were no longer a fan. Nivea responded to them with this:
“awe I hate to lose a fan! Don’t care abt the other bs u said but I’m 32 lol please don’t rush my age I’m old enough as it is.”
Again, Milian hasn’t bothered to comment on these statements, and again, Nivea didn’t share this same confusion or irritation with Lil Wayne, who is also well-aware of the perceived messiness of his relationship with Milian. As I said before, it takes two to tango. But then again, this isn’t the first time Milian has called out a girl Lil Wayne is interested in. Back in 2009 she took to MySpace (throwback!) to call YMCMB singer Shanell “the background sl*t that sings with lil wayne” and “a piece of trash not to be respected!” for smiling in her face while getting involved with Weezy behind her back. Clearly she doesn’t play when it comes to this man, but then again, she DID have that song, “Don’t Mess With My Man”…
The-Dream And Nivea Criticize Christina Milian For Dating Lil Wayne Since They’re All Connected By Their Children
During a recent chat with Vlad TV, singer-songwriter The-Dream was asked his thoughts on his ex-wife, singer/actress Christina Milian, dating Lil Wayne. Of course, Lil Wayne has a child with Nivea, who is The-Dream’s other ex-wife, so all four individuals are connected by the children they brought into the world. In that interview, The-Dream said that when he heard about the news of Milian getting close to the YMCMB head, he joked, but said it was, and still is, awkward.
Interviewer: “How is that dynamic between the three of you?”
The-Dream: “Super dynamic, that’s pretty good, right? But uh, I think that’s what everybody was thinking when the news broke. Well, everybody was thinking that but supposedly Christina. She wasn’t thinking of that at all. I have no idea how she could NOT be thinking of that…”
Nivea went on to post his chat with Vlad TV on her Instagram, and had this to say: “Hmmmm.. drops mic.. #She’sAScareCrow”
I must be old-school with my disses because I have no idea what makes someone a “scarecrow,” but word is, such a comment is referring to the fact that a scarecrow has no brain. But whatever Nivea was trying to say has folks talking on her page. Some think this budding relationship is backwards, but just as many are saying that Nivea needs to sit down somewhere and focus on her music. Milian has not responded to either comments, and it’s probably best that she doesn’t, especially if Lil Wayne doesn’t have to respond to such criticism (it takes two folks)…

According to the rumor mill, Christina Milian and Lil Wayne have been an item for quite some time now. However, Christina has denied being romantically involved with the Young Money rapper. Now, there’s a new rumor to refute: Christina is pregnant by Wayne.

Last week, a few gossip sites reported that the “Dip It Low” singer is with child. But she quickly took to social media to dispel those rumors.
“I am NOT preggos #MTO. Lol, where do you guys get this stuff?
At least she’s laughing off these rumors. Since her split from Jas Prince, Christina seemed to have a bit of a short fuse. She snapped at fans on social media on multiple occasions for commenting on her personal affairs. Well, we’re glad to hear that Wayne hasn’t added a new woman to his gang of baby mamas.

It seems Lil Wayne’s high flying is costing him. The rapper and his company Young Money Entertainment are being sued for more than $1 million for unpaid airplane rental.
The Signature Group has sued Dwayne Michael Carter Jr. (aka Lil Wayne) and his “putative” company Young Money Entertainment in Miami-Dade County Court for bills racked up while “jet setting around the globe.” Signature Group has some opinions about entertainers and the “good life.” In court documents, the company says:
“As with many such artists, Mr. Carter appears to enjoy the finer things in life: expensive cars, a mansion in La Gorce Country Club on Miami Beach, and private aircraft travel for himself, his agents, and members of his entourage, to worldwide destinations of his choice.”
The complaint continued:
“Naturally, the enjoyment of such luxuries is not free, and Mr. Carter and his putative Florida limited liability, defendant Young Money, have failed to live up to their obligations and now owe plaintiff, Signature Group… The nature of this dispute is straightforward and there are dozens of written communication from Mr. Carter’s agents, not only attesting to the existence of this debt, but also promising payment if plaintiff foregoes taking action against defendants. Simply put, Mr. Carter can choose to use the proceeds that he earns to live the life of a hip-hop star – but he has to pay his bills just like the rest of us.”
Dang. The lawsuit seeks money it says Signature is owed along with damages for breach of contract and unjust enrichment, reports Court House News.
With a net worth reportedly at $135 million, we think Lil Wayne can afford to fly commercial if necessary.
“Get It Right Boo!” Christina Milian Slams IG Followers Accusing Her Of Dating Famous Men For Songs And Money
In the past few years, there has been a trend in the type of men Christina Milian has dated (most of them have been in the music or entertainment industry, including Nick Cannon), and for some reason, that has caused some people to question her intentions when it comes to finding “love.” There has been Andre Lyon from the production duo Cool & Dre (he worked on her album, So Amazin’ back in 2006), The-Dream, whom she married (they first started working together in 2009 on her album Elope, which was scrapped after they split), then she was engaged to Jas Prince (son of Rap-A-Lot Records CEO James Prince), and of course, she’s now been spotted with Lil Wayne, who has publicly called her his “baby” (and he signed her to Young Money Entertainment). Turns out, Milian has heard these comments about her before (including from ex-husband The-Dream), and when one young woman following her on Instagram stated that she moved on too fast from Jas Prince and is with Lil Wayne for more than his personality, she finally decided to fire back.
Only Milian knows how much money she has and where it comes from, but are you feeling her response to her detractors? Talk about it below.
What better athlete to represent your brand spankin’ new sports venture than the piping hot fútbol star Cristiano Ronaldo? Lil Wayne’s tapping the Portugese soccer great to launch a sports management agency, MTV reports. Watch your back Jay Z. Weezy’s comin’ for you!
Lil Wayne’s friendship with Ronaldo couldn’t be more advantageous for the New Orleans rapper who’s been eyeing a new athlete-focused enterprise. Just how close are they? Well, Ronaldo tweeted a group photo (with the Prime Minister of Japan and other politicians) throwing up the Young Money/Cash Money sign — that close.
— Cristiano Ronaldo (@Cristiano) July 24, 2014
“My homie Christiano Ronaldo got the President of Japan throwing up Young money! He too real 4dat! Young Muulah baby!” Wayne tweeted in response, according to Rap Up.
With Ronaldo, the second-highest paid athlete in the world, as his first client, the New Orleans rapper is giving Jay Z’s RocNation Sports, home to Skylar Diggins and Kevin Durant, a run for its money. Reportedly trademarked as “Visionaire Sports Group,” Wayne’s agency is partnering with PolarisSports (an affiliate of GestiFute and the CAA, which represents Carmelo Anthony).
Now that Ronaldo is on the roster, what will Visionaire Sports Group be responsible for? TMZ explains:
“Wayne’s company will handle Ronaldo’s sports management affairs in the United States — everything from branding to marketing and endorsement deals. Even modeling.”
So we’ll get to see more of Ronaldo? No one’s complaining!
Wayne’s new venture is one of his many business manuevers. Besides being the founding father of YMCMB, Tunechi has launched a cigar, shoe, watch, headphone, and clothing line — and even a book!
In the words of Lil Wayne, “Young muulah baby!”

So are Lil Wayne and Christina Milian really dating? We told you yesterday that the two showed up looking real chummy for Wednesday night’s ESPY Awards. And they were first spotted out and about in a more than friendly manner after hitting up a BET Awards after-party together. But the rumors hit overdrive when they were spotted holding hands as they made their way to their seats during the ESPYs.
So what’s really going on?
According to sources close to both Milian and Lil Wayne who spoke with TMZ, they’re not dating. Instead, they were just enjoying one another’s company publicly to get Milian’s face out there in order to promote upcoming music projects she has in the works (she is signed to YMCMB and signed with the music group in 2012). According to TMZ, the sources said that Weezy brought her to the show for press sake, but that’s about it.
If they were a couple, that would be very interesting considering the fact that she’s his artist as the founder of the popular record label. And oh yeah, it would also be interesting because of their exes. Milian used to be married to, and has daughter Violet with The-Dream. The-Dream used to be married to Nivea, and has three children by the producer and singer. Nivea also was involved with Lil Wayne, and has a son by him. Six degrees of separation anyone?
But what do you think of the possibility of them being an item? Considering that she just ended an engagement with Rap-A-Lot Records CEO Jas Prince, I would say that Lil Wayne is just a rebound, but who knows? Could be true love. Now that would be interesting…
Last month, Christina Milian announced that she ended her engagement to fiancé, Jas Prince. While she didn’t offer an explanation for the split, her response to an Instagram follower fueled rumors that infidelity was the final nail in the coffin of their relationship.
“You should’ve told HIM not to slip up. But everyone’s really caught up in what they see only on Instagram,”Christina told a fan who encouraged her to work things out with Jas. “I can make everything ‘appear’ perfect to the world, but my truth is still the truth.”
Shortly after that, rumors began flying that Christina had already moved on and was pursuing a relationship with Lil’ Wayne. Initially, the rumors were sparked after Christina was seen leaving a BET Awards after-party with Wayne. While it all seemed a bit sketchy, we gave them the benefit of the doubt, as Christina is signed to Young Money Cash Money Records. But when Wayne showed up to the ESPYs last night with Christina as his date, it became obvious that whatever they have going on is worth looking into. Not only did the two walk hand-in-hand while heading to their seats, but they were also looking extremely cozy throughout the night.
Reps for Christina have yet to confirm whether or not the rumors are true, but at this point I’m not sure if we really need a confirmation. If they are true, then all of this drama will probably make great material for her new reality show, which was initially supposed to focus on the planning of her wedding to Jas Prince. Only time will tell what’s really going on.

This past Sunday, we caught Lil Wayne and his daughter, Reginae bonding during the 2014 BET Awards. While viewers were captivated with how fast Reginae grew into young woman, it was revealed how much of a grown woman Reginae has become this week. Proud Papa Weezy introduced his first born as the newest edition to his Young Money music label while on his “Weezy Wednesday” webisode. Lil Wayne publicized Reginae’s first music video: “Mind Goin Crazy!”
Following in her business-oriented parents’ footsteps, (her mother Antonia “Toya” Carter became a household name for her BET “Tiny And Toya” reality show), Reginae gained an endorsement deal with Hairfinity, a hair growth product. She’s featured the product in her first music video, and her first documentary “Becoming Reginae” will be produced by the company.
The 16-year-old was originally apart of Xscape singer Tiny’s OMG Girlz girl group but opted to depart from the group in 2010. In the upcoming future, Reginae will release a book alongside Bria Williams who is the daughter of Cash Money’s CEO and rapper Birdman. Below is her debut music video and first episode of her documentary, “Becoming Reginae!”
When we hear Nivea’s name we immediately think of the chorus “Been so loooong…” from one of her most notable features on Mystikal’s “Danger” back in 2000. Though the R&B singer dropped other singles after that time, it wasn’t long before she faded from the limelight and people started referencing her more for her relationships with Lil Wayne and The Dream than her smooth singing voice.
Last week we uncovered the 32-year-old singer in Atlanta and got to ask her everything we’ve been wanting to know for the past 10 years, like why her career didn’t take off as well as some of her competition back in the day, how she feels when people refer to her and the other mothers of Lil Wayne’s children as random baby mamas, what does she think about The Dream’s domestic violence allegations, and does she still consider Weezy the love of her life. Check out our candid interview with the mother of four and hear her plans for the next chapter in her life in the video above. Do you miss Nivea?
