You’ve probably been waiting on tenterhooks to find out why Lil Wayne and Trina couldn’t make it work back in 2005. BET reports that the pair dated for about a year before things fell apart. Perhaps it was because social media wasn’t as wildly popular back then, but the breakup drama was relatively mild (unlike some couples nowadays).
During an interview with Power 105.1's The Breakfast Club on Thursday morning, Trina let us in on what went wrong. Kinda nothing? They were just kids.
She says, “Wayne is a very great person. Wayne never did anything wrong to me. The thing is, when I dated Wayne — which was so many years ago — we were just real young. Wayne was real young. I was real young. A part of it was, 'I don't even know what I'm doing, and I know you don't know what you're doing.'”
But she recently got back in touch to ask him to be on her new record, and their friendship stood strong for collaboration. Trina explains, “I just hit him and said, 'I want you to get on this record,' and that was it. He sent the record back on my birthday, which was crazy. The record is very explosive and what I'm saying, it triggered him to say what he's saying. He's very cocky already. It's a dope record."
Promoting her record is probably the reason this small bit of gossip is being trotted out, but you know, it worked. I’m gonna listen. At least they didn’t fake anything to get people to buy records.
