Lil Wayne’s Daughter Nets $22K Paycheck for BET Reality Show
While Lil Wayne has had considerable success in his own right, it appears that being bankable runs in the family. Weezy's 12-year-old daughter, Reginae, is also bringing in the big bucks. By appearing on her mother's BET reality show, 'TOYA: A Family Affair,' the tween is set to bring in a respectable $22,000 this season.
According to details just released by TMZ, Reginae's contract includes a pay a rate of $2,000 per episode with the guarantee of 11 episodes per season. BET also covers expenses for Wayne's baby girl that include air travel accommodations, for a distance greater than 75 miles. She will also receive a 5 percent raise for each additional season she appears on the show, and has been reportedly saving her money in an account which she will be able to access once she turns 18.
The show is a spin-off of BET's 'Tiny & Toya' series featuring Reginae's mother, Antonia "Toya" Carter, and T.I.'s wife, Tameka "Tiny" Cottle. 'TOYA: A Family Affair' details Carter's struggles with helping her mother maintain sobriety while raising her daughter and etching out an identity that separates her from simply being the Grammy-winning rapper's ex-wife.
Reginae is the eldest of Wayne's four children, and his only daughter. Wayne has three other sons with three different women, including singer Nivea and actress Lauren London.
