Instagram User Gets Shock Of Her Life When She Criticizes Christina Milian For Dating Lil Wayne On Her OWN Page, And Milian Responds
What are the chances that as an everyday person, you would make fun of a celebrity on your social media page, only for them to find out and respond? One woman got the shock of her life when she took a dig at Christina Milian and the women of “the circle.” The circle, according to this individual, is the group of women who all know each other, get along (for the most part), and oh yeah, either have children with Lil Wayne or have dated him. She posted a collage of all of the women, including his ex-wife Toya Wright, Nivea, Lauren London, Sarah Vivian and of course, Milian. She shared it with the caption, “These hoes love Wayne!!! #IJS #AllHisBabyMommas #ChristinaAndNiveaBothHaveBabiesByDream #TheCircle” In essence, she was trying to call the women, specifically Christina Milian, messy.
But things didn’t go the way she planned, because Christina Milian actually ended up being tagged in the collage, saw it, and responded with something short and simple: “Sho do.”
Once the woman saw that Milian had responded, she tried to backtrack on her statements: “@christinamilian no offense boo. its all love.”
But it was too late. Once Milian ended up commenting, her fans went on attack mode and started insulting the woman’s looks and calling her everything but a child of God. She eventually had to make a whole new post to defend herself.
“Post made #TheShadeRoom quick. Probably only because @christinamilian commented but now my neck is being chopped over it. Simply because I used the word hoes instead of females. Lmao. I really didn’t mean they were “hoes” but okay. Wayne refers to all his females as hoes but that dude is loved. Feeling like Wendy Williams right now. Lol. People claiming I got 5 seconds of fame. Lmfao. It’s IG. This ain’t sh*t.”
While I personally wouldn’t date a man who has a child with a woman whose ex-husband I used to be married to and whose children call my daughter their sister (waaaaay too complicated), people need to let these grown folks live. But what do you think of all this?
“I Had Fans Spray Paint My Car…Scratch It Up”: Toya Wright On What Being Married To Lil Wayne Was Like And Successfully Co-Parenting
At this point in time, Toya Wright is happily married to Mickey “Memphitz” Wright, and they will celebrate four years of marriage next year. But 10 years ago, she was married to rapper Lil Wayne, whom she had first met and fell for when she was 13 (she got pregnant with their daughter Reginae when she was 14). She says that those years weren’t easy. In an interview with VLADTV, the beauty explained what it was like dating Lil Wayne back when they were just teenagers, and how all the girls and young women they grew up with in New Orleans were willing to do battle with her for the up-and-coming rap star.
“It was a lot. I had to deal with a lot of females. I was put out of school for fighting. There was a lot of drama with dating a young rapper that was very popular in the city. Back in the day he was charming. He had his little pimp ways with all the girls and they just used to come for me. It was crazy.
It’s been some crazy stories. One time a girl spray painted my car pink. I used to just have to deal with so much. I had to get out of the city. I was like, ‘It’s time for me to leave.’ I had fans spray paint my car, they would scratch it up. All kinds of crazy stuff. Put stuff in the mailbox…it was just weird.”
And once he obtained mainstream fame after they were married, things got worse. After a while, she realized that they were on two totally different pages.
“It was a mutual agreement. We just knew we couldn’t do it. We wanted two different things in life. I’m a person that’s very family-oriented. I do a lot of things with my family, my daughter. His career is totally different. His lifestyle just didn’t match what I was looking for.”
But she says the decision to go their separate ways was for the best, because they get along a lot better now.
“We’re grown. We’re friends. I’m married. He’s in a relationship or whatever…his little situation. And we’re good friends. We do a great job co-parenting. We laugh about this stuff now.”
Check out Wright’s chat with VLADTV below:
We already know how Nivea feels about Lil Wayne dating her ex-husband’s ex-wife, Christina Milian. Now, Wayne’s ex-wife, Toya Wright, is also commenting on the messy love web.
“I think that’s a hot mess,” Toya told Vlad TV when asked how she felt about the relationship. “I think that is a hot mess, if you want my honest opinion. That’s just too much.”
Toya went on to say that while she’s doesn’t involve herself in Wayne’s love life unless it pertains to their daughter Reginae, it’s completely unreasonable for him and Christina to think that it’s okay for them to date, considering that he has a child with Christina’s ex-husband’s ex-wife.
“It’s too many other women out there to date your son’s mother’s ex-husband’s girl. It’s just too much. It’s a lot to explain to your kids. I feel Nivea on that.”
Though she agrees that people can’t help who they fall in love with, she expressed that the pair should have taken all things into consideration before they even decided to get romantically involved.
“You can’t help who you fall in love with, but you can avoid certain things before it even gets to that point.”
At this point, I think we can all agree that Wayne’s relationship with Christina appears to be a train wreck waiting to happen.
Watch Toya’s interview below.
For almost two years now, K. Michelle has said time and time again that Memphitz, her ex boyfriend and Toya Wright’s current husband, put his hands on her. You may remember, in a meeting with Rasheeda she kept saying, over and over again, ‘He beat my ass.’ She screamed it, tears streaming down her face.
And in 2012, during an interview with The Breakfast Club, she detailed the incident.
I wasn’t just sitting there innocent, but I didn’t hit him first. I did not. I didn’t do anything. He blacked out. It wasn’t just a restraining. I was smothered with a towel. He hit me in the head with a water bottle. It wasn’t nothing small. I was bruised up and bleeding. What shocked me the most was the smothering. I was crawling and climbing to get away. Once I got away he was doing it again. He yanked me. I had carpet burns. I looked in his face and it did not look like him. I was screaming, “It’s me”. After that I left.
He was texting saying “I miss you, I’m sorry, I made a mistake. I really couldn’t forgive it because then he started saying “I made you”. When he started saying he made me then I started getting mad because I did not press charges because I loved him and I didn’t want him to get in trouble. I didn’t want him to lose his job. I still loved him. I just didn’t want to be with him. It got bad when R. Kelly came in.”
And that same year, in an interview with Rolling Out, she said:
“I also hope that they are mature within their situation to let me tell what happened to me. Because you’re at a point where you’ve got it together now. When I was there, you didn’t have it together. So, you know, I’m happy. I kind of feel like Build A Bear. You build a nigga up, you get punched by him and then the muhfucka go…and you build him up, he’s a better person.”
She said it flippantly but it does represent an inconsistency in her story.
Naturally, Memphitz didn’t like being accused of domestic violence and felt it was having a negative impact on his career. So he sued K. Michelle, Mona Scott-Young’s production company and Viacom. Memphitz is asking that K. Michelle pay his attorney’s fees and cost of litigation for his troubles.
In a recent deposition, obtained by Bossip, K. Michelle detailed the incident.
‘I Was Married To Him:’ Toya Wright Feels Disrespected When People Call Her ‘Lil’ Wayne’s Baby Mama’
We were first introduced to Antonia “Toya” Wright as the mother of Lil’ Wayne’s oldest daughter; however, since her initial introduction, the reality star has gone on to marry producer Mickey “Memphitz” Wright and establish her own identity, apart from her daughter’s famous father. Though Toya and Wayne seem to have this co-parenting thing down to a science and appear to have a wonderful relationship, she recently revealed that it bothers her when people continue to refer to her as “Wayne’s baby mama,” for quite a few reasons. For one, Toya says that he has a football team of baby mamas and unlike them, she was actually married to him.
“It does [bother me] to a certain level, but I totally get it,” Toya said during an interview with Streetz 94.5. “That’s how I was introduced to the media, but it’s also a form of disrespect. For one, I was married to him. If you gonna say anything about Lil’ Wayne, don’t say baby mama because he has like what, like four of those? Say ‘ex-wife.’ Don’t address me as his ‘baby mama’ because I wasn’t that.”
The former “Tiny & Toya” star went on to say that in addition to all of that, she’s married to someone else now.
“I’m someone else’s wife now. But that’s how you pump the story up. I guess it looks better because Lil’ Wayne went to jail, so now his baby mama went to jail,” Toya said, referring to her recent run-in with the cops over a speeding ticket. “So I guess that’s what makes more sense. But sometimes yes, that annoys the hell out of me,” she continued.
No argument here. We get it, Toya.
Watch her interview on the next page. Do you agree that people should stop referring to her as “Wayne’s baby mama?”
None of us really want to go to jail. But if you have to go, you want it to at least be for a substantial crime. So I know Toya Wright is probably really hot right now for getting arrested for something as petty as an unpaid speeding ticket.
There aren’t a whole lot of details but apparently, Toya was pulled over in College Park, GA yesterday. And during the stop, the officer noticed that there was a warrant out for her arrest for failing to appear for a court date.
Toya’s manager told Rolling Out that it was all a misunderstanding. According to the publicist, the speeding tickets had been paid but had yet to be cleared out of the system. He added that they’re reviewing the situation with lawyers.
Sadly, the day she was arrested was also her husband’s Memphitz’ birthday. She was released on $290 bound around 1:30 am this morning.
TMZ is reporting that now Toya is speaking about her experience and vowed that she would never go back to jail because she was so traumatized by the things she witnessed while there. She didn’t give details but says her fellow inmates were treated inhumanely. She says, “I wouldn’t wish jail time on my worst enemy. What I witnessed was so bad that I don’t even want to leave the house right now.”
But Toya is hoping to turn a negative into a positive. Now, she wants to advocate for better treatment of prisoners.
Is it an accessory or a necessity? These 15 celebs prove that although they may wear weaves out in public, they actually have a head of beautiful hair underneath it all.
Actress Sanaa Lathan is known for her high-end hair extensions but over the summer, the Best Man Holiday star decided to switch things up. Posting a photo of herself on Facebook sans a weave, Lathan revealed a thick and full head of hair. Lathan added the following caption: And the weave is out! #yesihaveALOTofhair #sandybrown #ineedatrim #ilovemyscalp
Celebrities are constantly changing their hair from the style to the length to even the color, so it makes perfect sense for them to invest in the billion dollar industry that is hair. Hair extensions have become a beauty staple that women all over the world enjoy. It is a market that doesn’t have many women or African American leaders, but the tide is starting to change. Click through this list of 15 celebrities who have made waves in the hair extensions world.
Tami Roman has stepped back into the weave game, this time around including her two daughters, Lyric and Jazz. The TR Collection specializes in three types of curly hair and Tami had this to say about her new venture, “Over the past few years, I’ve had the opportunity to work with some really great hair companies (Glamluxe, Indique), in which I’ve learned a lot about what it takes to offer above grade quality hair. So, I’ve decided to try again with my own CURLY hair line called the TR Hair Collection.”
Reality TV is like kryptonite to relationships, both romantic and platonic, which is why recent rumors that gal pals Tiny Harris and Toya Wright weren’t totally unbelievable. Thankfully, it appears that there was no truth to the rumors. During a recent interview with Streetz 94.5, Toya slammed speculations surrounding their alleged deteriorating relationship. She also touched on a few other things including when we can expect a little Memphitz and the latest news on her reality TV project. Check out her interview highlights below.
On the current status of her reality TV project with hubby Memphitz:
“Me and my husband shot a pilot, but he has some other things going on with the network. So it’s kind of like, if it happens, it happens, if not, I’m not tripping. I’m still working.”
On if she and Memphitz will be having a baby soon:
“I’m trying to finish everything up. I’m working on my second book, I just got a new book deal with Cash Money Content. So I’m finishing up my second book. I’m tryna get that out of the the way first. Once we get the business out the way, yeah, them babies gon’ come– later.”
On her relationship with Wayne and the mothers of his other children:
“That’s my family. They’ve been my family forever. My husband understands. One thing I love about him, none of that intimidates him. It’s weird, it’s a situation that no one understands and gets. But that’s our situation and we all are cool. Wayne baby mamas, Memph–everybody. Ain’t nobody got time for that.”
On rumored beef with Tiny:
“What? That’s crazy. Tiny is like my big sister. We talk all the time. Like Tiny and I … we are probably about to do something real soon. Just because every time we get together, we don’t Instagram. I just was with her. There’s no beef ever. I don’t beef with my friends. That’s petty. That’s childish. I love all my friends. We all working trying to get this money. Please, no beef over here.”.
