‘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.”.
Gotta Man That I Think I’m Gon’ Love Forever: Keri Hilson And Her Baller Boo Serge Ibaka Get Cute And Cuddly At ATL Club
While we were bumming it up for the weekend catching up on movies, a few reality TV stars and a few of Atlanta’s finest entertainers put on their tallest stilettos and headed to Privé nightclub this past weekend. Among those cheesing it up for the camera included Keri Hilson and her Oklahoma City Thunder playing boyfriend Serge Ibaka (who is super fine). The two were snapped getting extra cute, close and cozy in the club. They danced, they had some drinks, and she showed off her svelte frame in a pair of super-tight white jeans and a printed crop top. Maybe it’s the alcohol in her system at that time, but doesn’t Keri just look the happiest she has in a while? A good man can do that to you! They are very cute and seem to be head over heels in love, am I right?
Check out more pictures of the two cuddled up lovers in the club, along with snaps of a bra-less Joseline Hernandez (why, girl, why??) and her man Stevie J, Cassie, Toya Wright and Tiny, and Mimi Faust of all people painting the town red in the ATL on the next page:
It would seem that Toya Wright just can’t get enough when it comes to the fame. She and husband, Mickey “Memphitz” Wright are shopping around a new reality show “Crazy In Love.” In the trailer we watch as Toya and Memphitz describe their love for each other, in addition to the crazy incidents or drama that’s been associated with their names as of late.
Of course it’s really just Memphitz who’s been associated with some madness. Like the K. Michelle accusations and him bringing a gun into the airport.
Despite the drama though, I have to admit that the two come across as very charming. Memphitz is obviously the energetic, funny one. And Toya is more laid back and reserved. It’s kind of cute.
Check out snippets from their interview and then watch the sneak peek on the next page.
Why Toya loves Memphitz
What I love about Mickey is his personality. He’s very bubbly. He loves his family, he loves his kids. He’s also a hard worker. He’s just fun to be around, very positive. And that’s spiritual side of me that was missing. We are like soul mates because we’re opposite. We are like soul mates.
Why Memphitz loves Toya
I love that she’s independent. She has her own story. She has her own business. She just has her own. It’s just crazy, she does not need me. So I have to watch how I deal with her because it’s not a normal girl that I’m dealing with…
About that gun in the airport…
This particular gun was in her car and the kids were getting in the car, keep the guns away from the kids of course. I take the gun out of the car and put it in my bag. Get in the car…we’re rushing to the airport. She’s in front of me. She goes through security perfectly. All of a sudden the line stops, so I look at her and she’s like, ‘It’s a gun.’ And I’m like ‘Who got a gun?’
Toya: I’m like you fool.
I’m not getting you out again.
Memphitz: Oh yeah you are. When you put this on *flashes ring* come get me.
Working on their marriage
Toya: I’m trying to still get used to being married because it’s always been about me and my kid. And now my husband always says I’m like Johnny Gill.
Memphitz *Breaks into “My My My.”* That’s all she says. That’s mine. Get that off of my blanket. What you doing in my bed? It’s not yours, it’s ours.”
“I gave her a shot at stardom and she would never listen. She’s crazy. I didn’t do it. She’s lying. I didn’t do it. That’s all.”
Well, there you have it. But there’s more.
Watch the two of them discuss finding a new assistant for Memphitz (because his baby momma wasn’t going to do anymore), and their attempts to have a new baby on the next page.
Lauren London Wants You To Stop Trippin’ About Her Relationship With Lil Wayne’s Other Babies’ Mamas
Lil Wayne is a walking, talking, breathing baby factory. Well, not really. He only has four children. But when you take he fact that all four children are by different women into consideration, it just seems like he’s reproduced way more times than he actually has. One thing most people have to admit about the “High School” rapper is that he doesn’t make headlines to often for having “baby mama drama.” Instead he attracts media attention for how well his children’s mothers get along. Lauren London, however, says that she’s sick of talking about it because it’s not as big of a deal as people make it out to be. The Game actress the cover girl for an upcoming issue of Jet and during her interview, with the mag, she expressed her frustration over people’s infatuation with the relationships she has with her son’s siblings and their mothers.
“People like to make it into this big thing, but it’s really not. There’s peace and love and my son knows his siblings. We all get along. We all clearly keep getting along. I’m tired of talking about it. What else do you want me to say?” The Game actress told the magazine.
She also says she’s pretty “blunt” when it comes to untrue things being said about her.
“I’m very blunt and honest. I have a very loyal heart. If I love you, I ride for you if I don’t f*** with you, I don’t f*** with you…If you want the truth, call me.”
What do you think? Are people making a big deal about all of this?
Reginae Carter has blossomed into a beautiful young lady right before our eyes. Although she’s the daughter of rapper Lil Wayne and reality star Toya Wright, she doesn’t appear to be looking to get by on the star power of her parents. At just 14 years old, she’s proven that she intends to blaze her own trail. Reginae and Birdman’s daughter Bria Williams have decided to put their creative minds together and pen a teen book. The upcoming book is entitled Paparazzi Princesses.The fictional novel will be published by Simon & Schuster in conjunction with Cash Money Content. The book’s description, which appears on the Simon & Schuster website reads:
“In the tradition of Drama High, The Clique, and the Gossip Girl series, welcome to the world of the Paparazzi Princesses. Money and designer clothes. Fame and red carpets. VIP concert tickets. Expensive parties. That’s the good stuff…but being the daughter of a music mogul or a famous rapper isn’t easy.
Step inside the lives of Kayla Jones and Promise Walker. As the daughters of two legends of rap music, trips, cash, designer labels, and famous friends are just business as usual. But so are the high expectations of super-successful parents, the drama of having two-faced friends, the not-always welcome glare of constant media attention, and the hurt of narsty gossip. Kayla and Promise face a daily struggle to figure out who to trust. To make matters worse, sometimes they’re not even sure of each other!”
Reginae took to her Twitter account over the weekend to express her excitement surrounding the upcoming book.
“Just wrapped the cover shoot for me and @briawilliams1 book ! Stay tuned my wonderful reginaetors ?#YMCMP”
Paparazzi Princesses is set to release June of 2013. I think this idea is absolutely adorable. I’m sure the parents of both girls are really proud of them. It’s beautiful to see how much Toya, Wayne and Baby invest in the creativity of their children.

Celebrities love to throw shade on Twitter, but nothing is more entertaining than when another celeb throws it right back at them. Check out the best celebrity Twitter beefs of 2012.
Chrissy Teigen v. Team Breezy
Team Breezy is agro. All Chrissy said during the Billboard Music Awards this year was that Chris Brown’s performance wasn’t great. Is that really enough reason to threaten to kill a chick? They got so out of line that Breezy had to come in and calm things down. Some people are too crazy to handle 140 characters.
