Wayne had been in a relationship with La’Tecia Thomas
Bidot made her relationship with the Got Money rapper official on Instagram only weeks after Wayne reportedly called off his widely rumored engagement to the Australian model La’Tecia Thomas.
Rumors that La’Tecia and Lil Wayne were engaged spread on social media after Thomas posted a photo to Instagram in October 2019 that showed her wearing a diamond ring that fans believed was an engagement ring.
She also shared a video in December 2019 that showed her wearing the ring. The Instagram posts lead to rumors that Lil Wayne and La’Tecia were secretly planning their wedding.
The rumors gained traction after they went public with their relationship on New Year’s Eve 2019 and then made their first red carpet appearance together at the release party for Wayne’s album Funeral in January.
Lil Wayne appeared to confirm rumors that they were secretly planning to tie the knot when he rapped about his “wifey from Australia” in his rap track Not Me.
However, Wayne reportedly broke up with Thomas in May.
Fans noticed that Thomas has stopped wearing her diamond ring and later unfollowed Wayne on Instagram.
Lil Wayne revealed in a chat with Nicki Minaj that he was in a new relationship
Lil Wayne confirmed that he was in a new relationship in a chat with rapper Nicki Minaj on his Apple Music series Young Money Radio with Lil Wayne last week.
Rumors that Bidot was Lil Wayne’s new girlfriend started after eagle-eyed fans noticed that Wayne had started following Bidot on Instagram.
Fans have since been speculating about when and where Lil Wayne and Denise Bidot met. Some noted that Wayne appeared with Bidot in a photo taken while he was promoting his American Eagle Young Money collection in Miami last summer.
