Here's Why Lil Wayne Was Not At Toya Wright's Brother's Funeral

The TV personality said he had a pretty good reason.

Toya Wright is grieving the loss of her two brothers Ryan "Rudy" Johnson and Josh Johnson, who were killed in New Orleans a few weeks ago, but has been surrounded by support from friends, fans and especially her ex-husband Lil Wayne.

So, why was Weezy a no-show at the brothers' funeral last week? According to Toya, there's an explanation for that.

Lil Wayne did not attend because he didn't want it turning into a "media thing," she says. "He really can't handle funerals. Neither can I," she continues. "It was so hard to see my two brothers in caskets. I had nightmares afterward. It was so hard." 

Still, she says, Weezy has been a consistent source of support since the tragedy. "[Lil Wayne's] daughter needed him and he was there," Wright says. "He calls and checks on us all the time." 

Meanwhile, Toya continues to share memories of her brothers on social media:

We're glad to see Toya doing so well after losing so much.
