It can't be easy to be married to a celebrity, and it's probably even harder when your partner's female fans are a catty bunch. In a recent interview with VLADTV, Lil Wayne's ex-wife, Toya Wright, shared what it was like to be married to the rapper 10 years ago. The couple first got together in their teens and had a child when Wright was 14 years old, but the relationship couldn't handle Weezy’s rise to fame and the downsides of his celebrity.
"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," she said. "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."
The couple eventually decided that the relationship was no longer working for them and that they were each moving in opposite directions.
"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," Wright explained.
"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," she said.
