Early on in her career, after the release of her video for “Don’t Mess With My Man,” she started dating rapper Lil Wayne. Though she says they got engaged, the couple would eventually break up, and she ended up falling in love with and marrying songwriter Terius “The-Dream” Nash in 2004.
When their marriage came to an end in 2007, she reconnected with Wayne and their lives were pretty complicated at that point. She had three kids with her ex, and aside from daughter Reginae, Wayne was expecting a child with his ex, Sarah Vivian.
Nivea wasn’t bothered by that though because his unborn son at the time was conceived when they weren’t together, so she felt she couldn’t judge.
Since formally returning to the spotlight last year, singer Nivea has been making her rounds on the interview circuit.
In her latest sit-down, she discusses one of hip hop’s hottest topics at the time—the fact that she and Lauren London were both pregnant by Lil Wayne at the same time 10 years ago.
Nivea recently sat down to chat with VLADTV to discuss her life, career and more. However, one of the topics that are garnering the most attention is when she spilled the circumstances surrounding being pregnant by Lil Wayne at the same time Lauren London was also carrying his child—and the children were just 3 months apart.
In case you need a refresher, Nivea and Lil Wayne rekindled their relationship following her divorce from The-Dream back in 2007.
Lil Wayne and Nivea were engaged in 2002 but called it off. By 2009, they were engaged again and that’s when Nivea got pregnant…and so did Lauren London—but Lil Wayne also had another baby on the way by Sarah Vivian that was conceived when they weren’t together.
But the loss of that romantic relationship helped to bring about the relationship she inevitably developed with Lauren, also expecting a son with Wayne. The uncomfortable situation, and loss of her mother, actually brought them together.
