(Lil Wayne performs at the Grammys)
By Nadeska Alexis
Relax ya’ll, Lil Wanye did not put a ring on it. On Tuesday (February 14) three little words on Weezy’s Twitter account set off rumors that he popped the question to his girlfriend Dhea–“She said yes!” Wayne wrote–but there is no engagement to celebrate just yet.
Even though Wayne isn’t a very frequent tweeter, the feedback got to him quickly, because on Wednesday (February 15) morning, he followed up with a new message to clarify things. “Ohhhhhhh now I see why! I meant ‘she said yes’ to being my valentine!!!” he wrote. “Hahahahahahaha! Y’all krazy!”
Wayne and Dhea were first spotted out and about in Miami last May, and Complex magazine dug up some information on the rapper’s leading lady, reporting that she is originally from Scottsdale, Arizona, and previously worked at Suede Restaurant & Lounge in her hometown.
Over the past year, Dhea has accompanied Lil Wayne as he’s skipped across cities and continents during his I Am Still Music Tour. MTV News joined Wayne, Birdman, Ronald “Slim” Williams and the Cash Money team in New Orleans over the Thanksgiving holiday while they handed out turkeys, and Dhea was right by his side.
In December they were snapped sitting courtside at a Los Angeles Lakers game, and when Wayne headed to South Africa to perform, another tweet hinted that she was there as well. “In S. Africa w/ my homies, makin $, sk8’n, performing my azz off, & I get 2 make luv 2 the most beautiful woman! Mylifemylifemylifemylife. YOLO,” Wayne wrote.
Lil Wayne’s most serious relationship to date was with his ex-wife, Toya Carter, who is also the mother of his daughter, Reginae Carter. He opened up about the relationship in his VH1 “Behind the Music” special, saying that the two still maintain a great relationship.
