Lil Wayne Is Reportedly Dating Model Denise Bidot
Lil Wayne has a new boo.
After calling off his engagement to La’Tecia Thomas, the rapper, 37, has reportedly moved on and is now rumored to be dating model Denise Bidot. The 34-year-old plus-sized model, who is Puerto Rican and Kuwaiti, has appeared in fashion campaigns for Savage x Fenty, Lane Bryant, and Levi’s.
Fans made the love connection after noticing that Bidot is the only person Wayne follows on Instagram. Wayne was pictured alongside the runway model in Miami last summer while promoting his Young Money collection with American Eagle.
Additionally, he made reference to his new relationship during an interview with Nicki Minaj on Friday’s episode of Young Money Radio. While discussing marriage, Nicki told Wayne that she finally took his advice. “Remember when you was telling me that I be having an attitude all the time because I needed good dick?” she asked. “You was right though!”
Weezy laughed while adding, “I just hope my girl heard that, that’s all.”
Bidot has attracted a large following on Instagram with nearly 650,000 followers. In 2014, she became the first plus-size model to walk the runway for two straight size brands during New York Fashion Week.
Wayne ended his relationship with fiancée La’Tecia Thomas in May. The former couple, who reportedly connected on social media, got engaged last fall and Wayne even rapped about her on his Funeral album.
UPDATE: Bidot has confirmed her relationship with Wayne. In a post on Instagram Stories, she gushed over her new man. “Somehow in the middle of all the madness, something special happened. Us,” she wrote while sharing photos of her and the rapper boo’d up.
