Grammy-winning rapper Lil Wayne reportedly made a serious effort to comfort ex-wife Toya Wright following the shocking slaying of her two brothers last weekend.

According to new reports, Weezy F. Baby went to see Toya shortly after learning about her personal loss.

We’re told Weezy was completely devastated over the death of his ex’s brothers, and wanted to get to Toya and their daughter as soon as he could to pay his respects. He’s been in NOLA since Sunday and just left Thursday. Lil Wayne was especially close to Toya’s brother, Rudy, who used to live with Wayne. The service for Toya’s brothers is Friday, but we’re told Wayne will not attend — only because he doesn’t want to turn it into a media circus. (TMZ)

The fatal shooting took place last Sunday (July 31) in Wayne’s Louisiana home state.

Police discovered the bodies of Rudy and Josh Johnson in a car in the early hours of Sunday. They were pronounced dead at the scene after each sustaining multiple gunshot wounds, and their apparent murders are now under investigation by authorities. (Xposé)

A few days ago, Wright confirmed her brothers’ fatal shooting.
