Toya Wright’s Two Brothers Shot and Killed in New Orleans [PHOTO]

Sad news to report regarding Toya Wright. The reality star’s two brothers, Rudy and Josh Johnson, were shot and killed in New Orleans on Sunday (July 31).

According to, the two young men were discovered shortly after midnight inside a car in the city’s 7th Ward. Both had been shot multiple times and pronounced dead at the scene. Although police have yet to confirm the identities of the men, Wright’s family members have told the media that the victims were her two brothers.

Wright later confirmed her brothers’ death on her Instagram page. The 32-year-old author posted a photo of her two siblings hanging out together. “Help me Lord…I will never understand this,” she wrote in the caption with three crying emojis and the hashtags #stoptheviolence #ineverfeltpainlikethisbefore #riptomybrothers #icantbelievethis #prayformyfamily.

N.O. police do not know of a motive or possible suspects in the fatal shooting.

This news also comes just three days after Wright reportedly filed for divorce from her husband of five years, Mickey “Memphitz” Wright. She was previously married to rapper Lil Wayne with whom she shares a 17-year-old daughter named Reginae.

Upon hearing the sad news, rapper Trina and even Wright’s frenemy K. Michelle reached out on Twitter and tweeted their condolences (see below).

We want to send our heartfelt condolences to Toya Wright and her family as well. We must stop the violence and increase the peace.
