One day after after millions of men celebrated Father’s Day, one dad in particular was not allowed to see their oldest child.
Antonia “Toya” Carter is confirming reports that she did not let her 12-year-old daughter visit her father Lil Wayne at Rikers Island prison and in fact, doesn’t allow her to visit him at all.
Reginae Carter is the oldest of Lil Wayne’s four children by four different women and according to her mother Toya, she will never visit the New York prison where her father is incarcerated.
Speaking in an interview with VIBE, Toya tells the publication that Reginae’s not allowed to visit the facility, a decision she and Wayne made together.
“That’s no place for a kid to go. [Wayne and I] just decided not to let her go [to Riker’s Island] period. She’s never been. He makes sure he talks to his daughter every day, talking and writing is enough.”
Toya also adds that although Reginae’s not allowed inside, she prepared Father’s Day gifts for Lil Wayne that she would deliver before the mother and daughter duo spent the holiday together.
“[Reginae’s] writing her father a letter and she took pictures for him. When I go visit, I’ll bring it to him,” says Toya. We may spend [the day] with my father or just together.”
