Reginae Carter and YFN Lucci’s relationship
The two were romantically linked for a couple of years. Their relationship got a lot of attention because Carter is the daughter of Lil Wayne, as well as the fact that there was a big age gap between them. Fans were concerned that YFN Lucci also had kids before getting in a relationship with Carter.
It was reported that they broke up August 2019, but rumors continued that they were on and off. Carter confirmed on her series, T.I. and Tiny: The Friends and Family Hustle, that they were done.
“To hear my daddy tell me that Lucci, he loves you probably, but he’s not in love with you because of the actions and the things that he’s doing,” she said on the show. “My father told me that sometimes when people don’t know love themselves, they can’t love other people, and you can’t blame them for that. Sometimes people just don’t know how to love. Lil Wayne! He made the song! ‘How to Love.’”
Still, especially during the later months in 2020, it looked like Carter and YFN Lucci remained in contact and could be together. It was said they officially got back together in December 2020.
