Antonia “Toya” Carter, best known as Lil’ Wayne’s first baby mother, released a statement through her publicist to address the controversy over the Drake, Wayne and daughter Reginae’s BET award show performance.
I, Antonia ” Toya” Carter, have been disturbed but silent about the recent performance that took place at the BET awards, which including my only child Reginae Carter and her friends joining her father Lil Wayne on stage while he performed his new single “Every Girl”. I will be the first to admit that the father and daughter relationship should not have been reunited on stage for any particular reason while this song was being performed. Wayne is a very loving, caring, and devoted father and I truly feel that the act was unintentional due to the fact that he was trying to make his little girl happy by letting her be on stage with her father. Once again, I do not of any degree think it was a wise decision and I truly do apologize to all that this may offended and most importantly the children that watched this performance. I feel we all have learned a lot from this situation and pray that the viewers will allow these children to move forward with their lives and not held accountable because they are innocent.
Although, I didn’t notice the young girls that joined in on the performance with Drake and Wayne, I thought this was well stated.
Rumors have surfaced suggesting that Brandy was dropped by her label, Epic Records. According to BV Buzz, the singer was dropped due to the poor performance of her last LP, HUMAN released on December 8, 2008. The album sold only 196,509 units to date, according to the Neilsen sound scan reports.
Make make matters worst, the 30 year old singer has also parted ways with Jay Z’s Roc Nation Management.Brandy and Roc Nation’s relationship suffered due to “artistic differences.”
According to a source, “Her friend Brandon Creed that works as an A&R representative at Epic Records has been making calls to see if other labels would be interested in signing her”.
For now this is only a rumor and I hope it turns out to be untrue. Best wishes to Brandy.
