Details of what reportedly took place Sunday (June 19) landed online shortly after her arrest.

Reportedly, singer Nivea was arrested last night in Atlanta for DUI. The singer, ex-wife of The-Dream, and Lil Wayne's baby's mother, crashed her cream BMW X6 into a tree around 1 am last night near Marietta St. and Bolton Rd. It is reported that she was coming from Toya Carter's wedding and she has a baby in the car, but thank heavens no one was hurt. She was taken to the Fulton County Correctional Facility. Developing...

Prior to getting arrested, Nivea attended the wedding of Lil Wayne's ex-wife, Toya Carter.

Antonia "Toya" Carter and Mickey "Memphitz" Wright are now married. The couple married this past Saturday in Atlanta. Toya was surrounded by a flock of Lil Wayne's ex-girlfriends who also happen to be his children's mothers, like Lauren London and Nivea. One big happy family! (Dime Wars)

In November 2009, Wayne and Nivea welcomed their first child together.

"FYI: Lil Wayne and Nivea had their baby...a boy named Neal. (via @marisamendez)," she wrote Monday (November 30) afternoon. (Miss Info's Twitter)
