Lauren London Reveals Brief Engagement to Lil Wayne
Lil Wayne may have a new woman in his life, but one of his old flames is speaking up about their relationship. Actress Lauren London, who shares a son with Wayne, opened up about her relationship with the New Orleans native, which has been speculated about since announcing her pregnancy in 2009.
According to London, her son with Wayne was not a result of a one-night stand, despite media speculation, but rather a long relationship and short-lived engagement. “That my son is the result of some kind of one-night stand or groupie encounter with his father,” she said in an interview, when asked about the misconception that bothers her most. “I struggle with deciding when to answer or ignore the constant speculation about my private life, because I feel like that doesn’t belong to anybody but me.”
“I met Dwayne when I was 15 years old. I’ve known him a very long time, and we were in a relationship that didn’t make it,” she continued. “We tried more than once to revive it, and we were engaged briefly years ago, but we eventually parted ways. People see the ‘Lil’ Wayne’ persona and think they know who he really is. My son’s father is an intelligent, loving and lovable person who will always be a dear friend. That is all.”
London also explained that her relationship with the three other women who also have children by Wayne is harmonious and has grown out of the best interest of the children. In total, Wayne, 28, is father to four: three boys and one girl, Reginae, who appears on the BET reality show ‘Toya: A Family Affair,’ alongside her mother Antonia Carter.
For the most part, the Grammy winner keeps mum on his relationships with his children’s mothers but has since moved on with a new love interest, a restaurant host by the name of Dhea. The two have been spotted out and about in Miami on a few occasions but have yet to publicly announce their relationship.
