It looks like Lil Wayne may be in love. Rumors are stirring that Weezy is now engaged to plus-size model La’Tecia Thomas, whom he has been romantically seeing for quite some time. Hailing from Melbourne, Australia, 29-year-old Thomas boasts 1.1 million followers on Instagram alone. She’s also 5’9″, with Lil Wayne being 5’5″.
The two lovebirds have been publicly sighted on multiple occasions, including ringing in the new year with Wayne’s children. This report stems from the New Orleans rapper’s fansite created by some of his most loyal fans. Via LilWayneHQ, Wayne celebrated the holiday amongst loved ones at his mansion in Miami, Florida. In attendance were rumored fiancé La’Tecia Thomas, stepbrother Semaj, and kids Reginae, Neal, Cameron, and Dwayne Michael Carter III. The evening consisted of Weezy putting on his own firework show in the backyard while unreleased music played in the background.
Further than just being engaged, sources reveal Wayne and Thomas are planning their wedding. Allegedly, the two met this past summer. Thomas is signed to Wilhemina modeling agency and describes herself as “a body-positive model.” At a young age, she was an unhealthy UZ size 6 and eventually grew into who she is now: a joyous, confident size 16. Her hope is to encourage women to embrace their natural bodies via posting make-up free photos in addition to her professional shots.
Meanwhile, fans get look forward to Wayne’s forthcoming album Funeral which is currently in the works.
