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

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.
