The Truth About Lil Wayne And Denise Bidot's Relationship

They say that the best way to get over a breakup is to find someone new to spend your time with, and rapper Lil Wayne seems to be taking that advice to heart. After breaking up with his supposed fiancée, Australian model La'Tecia Thomas, in May 2020, Lil Wayne made his new relationship with model Denise Bidot Instagram official just one month later. Talk about a quick turnaround! 

Lil Wayne and Thomas kept their romance mostly private, although she was photographed wearing what looked like an engagement ring in December 2019. Wayne also included her in some of his verses, calling her "wifey" on his song "Not Me," and in "Stop Playin With Me," he raps the lyrics: "I got a plus-sized model, but she my lil' mama / I make her bust it open for me like a piñata / And as the world turned, she was my spin doctor."

But as quickly as the relationship was made public, it seemingly ended, as Thomas was spotted without her ring just months after she was first spotted wearing it. Thomas and Lil Wayne also stopped following each other on Instagram, making it all the more clear that they were over. Lil Wayne doesn't seem all that torn up about it, though. 

LIl Wayne has moved on with another model

Just a month after his reported breakup with Australian model La'Tecia Thomas, Lil Wayne seems to be dating model Denise Bidot. Per People, the 34-year-old model posted a series of pictures in an Instagram Story in mid-June 2020 with the rapper — in one pic, they're smiling at the camera, and in two others, they are wrapped in each others arms and kissing. Bidot wrote, with a black heart emoji, "Somehow in the middle of all the madness, something special happened. Us." So they're definitely together and into each other, though the timing might sting a little for his ex. 

There's no mention of Bidot on Wayne's own Instagram grid or Stories, but he does only follow one person and one person only — Bidot. He also referenced the fact that he was dating someone on an episode of Young Money Radio with Nicki Minaj, per Rap-Up. Minaj reminisced about a time when Wayne told her that she had attitude because she needed "good d**k" and told him, "You was right though!" Wayne responded by saying, "I just hope my girl heard that, that's all."

Denise Bidot is major in the modeling world

Lil Wayne has a thing for successful women and Denise Bidot definitely fits that criteria. Bidot, who is Puerto Rican and Kuwaiti, made history in 2014 when she was the first plus-size model to walk for two straight-size brands in New York Fashion Week. She was also handpicked by Serena Williams to walk in the athlete's HSN show in London that same year, per Essence.

Bidot told the outlet of the experience, "I felt proud to be the only plus-size in the show and closing meant so much to me because that's how she envisioned it. It's hard to explain the butterflies and adrenaline backstage, it was an amazing experience." She's also in campaigns for Savage x Fenty, Lane Bryant, and Levi's, per Rap-Up

She's a strong advocate for women and body positivity. Bidot told The Cut in an interview in 2016, "I always say there's no wrong way to be a woman. C'mon, guys, we're women. We have enough battles in the world to not support each other, to not be rooting for each other. One step for one is one step for all of us. We don't need to say one is less than the other to feel validated. You're beautiful and you should feel good in your skin, and nobody should tell you otherwise."

That kind of energy is likely what drew Lil Wayne to her in the first place. 

Lil Wayne writes love songs, too

Although it's sad that Lil Wayne and La'Tecia Thomas called off their reported engagement, it does seem like the rapper is thrilled to be in his new relationship, judging by the pictures alone. And him and Denise Bidot are a good match. She's a gorgeous, successful, and outspoken model, and Lil Wayne is equally as hardworking, successful, and has that rebel sort of attitude.

The "Lollipop" rapper is also very in love with love, even going so far as to name an as-of-yet unreleased album Devol, which is "loved" spelled backwards. Wayne said he recorded the songs during his stint on Rikers Island in 2010 and that he did plan to release it, given that his then-producer and mentor Birdman "lets him do whatever he wants," per MTV News. Unfortunately, the two have since fallen out, per Billboard, but maybe Wayne is still planning on sharing his "version," as he put it to the outlet, "of love songs." Especially now that he has a muse in Bidot.
