Lil Wayne's ex-wife Antonia "Toya" Carter has revealed that the incarcerated rapper is helping prevent other inmates from committing suicide.
According to Toya, he is keeping an eye out on possible suicidal prisoners.
"Wayne has a job -- they got him on suicide watch for other prisoners," his ex, BET reality star Antonia "Toya" Johnson, told Us' Ian Drew during an office visit Tuesday. "He watches the crazy prisoners and makes sure they don't kill themselves. He likes the job even though they don't pay him much." (Us Magazine)
Toya recently talked about Wayne's current relationship with their daughter, Reginae.
"As long as we've been talking or dating I've never not been able to pick up the phone and call him no matter what is going on in my life," she said in an interview. "Now he's locked up and it's not like that anymore. As far as my daughter, her and her father have a great relationship. She talks to him every day after school. She can still talk to him but now it's on a schedule with calls. It's going to be a change for these 8 months." (Honey Mag)
Wayne is currently keeping fans updated with his new website, WeezyThanxYou.com.
"Love. Live. Life. Proceed. Progress. That's who I am and who I'll always be. You see, we're all living on borrowed time, so I'm not worried about this situation. Life happens quick. The more time you spend contemplating what you should have done...you lose valuable time planning what you can and will do. Trying to tear down the past prohibits you from building up your future. So for my time here, my physical will be confined to the yard. My love and my spirit, however, know no boundaries." (Weezy Thanx You)
He was officially sentenced to a year behind bars in early March.
