I was minding my business scrolling through my Facebook feed last week when I saw a video clip of Christina Milian discussing her break-up with Lil Wayne on her reality show, Christina Milian Turned Up. As she sat in the confessional room, she cried crocodile tears, ruining her makeup and said between inconsolable pauses…”I have never loved anyone the way that I love Wayne. Not even my ex-husband….I will never love anyone the way I love him.”
Did you see that shrug followed by the sigh and church rock at the end? *shivers* This woman, usually a bubbly ray of sunshine, sat her little self in that chair and let the world know how Dewayne Carter had rocked her world to the core. She was all out of justifiable reasoning for her feelings for him. Out on a limb, like Teena Marie. And nothing was the same.
Oh, Christina…le sigh.
Tina Turn-Up is yet another added to Wayne’s roster of women he’s left distraught and in despair. He was engaged to Trina, the Baddest Bitch, who unfortunately, experienced the miscarriage of their baby. They, too, were madly in love.
In 2013 Karrine “Superhead” Steffans wrote a book, How to Make Love With A Martian (Don’t judge me because I read it. It was only 100 pages) where she gushed about her affair with Wayne for five plus years. She’d made it known to her then-husband and anyone she was in a relationship with thereafter that she would never cut him off. Her ultimatum to men who took issue was “deal with it or leave” according to an interview with VLAD earlier this year. Since then, I guess Karrine has wised up, even warning Christina on Twitter that you can’t cry over “a man who belongs to the world.” Oh, and she also indirectly called him a “fuckboi.” Welp.
Then there’s Lauren London, the latest of his children’s mothers, who’s been the quietest of the bunch. At the most, she’s said she’ll always love him, and they will always be friends. Yeah, we didn’t see that one coming either.
So after seeing the emotional aftermath of Christina’s break-up, everyone in the whole damn world wants to know what it is about Lil Wayne that sends these women into a frenzy. Let’s go down the list of possible options.
The first thing I usually hear is his sex must be ah-mazing. He’s managed to impregnate 85 percent of the women he’s been with (that the public knows of), and they’re all beautiful. I don’t EVEN wanna go there over what he does sexually. Not a one of us is ready for that, and it HAS to be more to it than that. Let’s just move on…
Maybe he put a voodoo hex or root (pronounced: RUT), some would say. He’s from New Orleans, and if you know a New Orleans man, you know they have something that other men don’t have. Even I fell in love with one, too. That accent, natural sense of humor, swag can be too much to bear if you’re not ready…. I get it, but…NO.
Or is Miss Cita’s son proving that beauty really is skin deep and personality is really what counts? He’s such a wonderful man that these women are able to look past the exterior? I’m not saying Wayne isn’t attractive, but I have seen him compared to a Gremlin in a couple of Internet memes and might not have been able to decipher between the two. Anyway.
Let’s see…What else? He’s a Libra, and if you’re into that kind of thing, you know that they can be attentive, giving, charming, protective. Women usually like that, right?
Money…Despite the lawsuits he’s hit with weekly, it seems, he has a lot of it. But so do the women he’s with.
Simply put, there’s no earthly explanation for Wayne’s sorcery. All I know is Tina is out here distraught probably scrolling through all their old text conversations right now while singing “Why Does It Hurt So Bad” from theWaiting to Exhale soundtrack in the shower. Meanwhile her heartbreak has been turned into 30- second clip diary on loop when she was only being vulnerable and open. This isn’t about shaming a woman for publicly mourning a relationship. This is about finding out what kind of spell her ex puts on perfectly sensible women. Maybe that’s what love is sometimes—a deep and dangerous spell, and some stay under it longer than others.
