Rapper and producer Lil Wayne has reportedly hired a squadron of body guards to watch over his ex-wife Toya Wright following allegations that her new flame has a history of physical abuse, according to The Urban Daily. The rumors come hot on the heels of a revelation made on the popular VH1 show Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta, prompting Wayne to take immediate precautions.
During a recent storyline on the aforementioned cable reality show, star K. Michelle revealed that she was frequently abused by Mickey “Memphitz” Wright, a claim that the record producer and his camp have vehemently denied. However, the rumors are enough to make Lil Wayne take notice, especially considering his ex-wife recently tied the knot with Memphitz.
In order to keep his ex-wife and BET reality star Toya Wright and daughter Reginae safe and sound, the rapper has hired a few body guards to keep a close eye on the situation. The Miami Herald reports that the extra protection will run the musician roughly $10,000 per month. When it comes to providing safety for his family, Lil Wayne apparently doesn’t like to cut costs.
“You bet that Lil Wayne is concerned,” a close friend of Toya Wright explained. “He mostly wants to make sure their daughter never gets caught in the middle of anything.”
Memphitz, meanwhile, has denied the allegations. A spokesperson from the producer’s camp has not yet commented on the bodyguard rumors.
However, things aren’t all bad in Lil Wayne’s world. His latest mixtape, Dedication 4, was recently released, much to the delight of those who have come to appreciate the rapper’s musical endeavors.
“The reason why I’m recording mixtapes is because I’ve grown a whole fan base that just loves Wayne mixtapes,” he explained to Mixtape Daily. “Me being the generous dude I am, I have to cater to those people, so that’s why I do the mixtapes now.”
