Carter acknowledges that while she went to school as her parents value education, she acknowledged that it just wasn't for her. In fact, she thinks that some teachers and students ended up not liking her because of her mom and dad. 

"I've always had great grades, I've always did what I had to do, but school was never for me... it's not the same with me. I always had to think about the teachers not liking me because of my daddy or my mama or the kids not liking me because I got this."

However, if there's one thing her dad made her realize which she took to heart, it's that "there's nothing more beautiful than a black educated woman," and that allowed her to power through school. 


As for her dating life, she shares that being Lil Wayne's daughter had people avoiding her as respect to one of the "OG" rappers of all-time. 

"There’s a certain respect that you have to have when you come to me, so it’s like people don’t be wanting to deal with all of that. You gotta deal with my daddy, then you got to deal with my godfather … It’s just too much.”

As Reginae lives with her mother, Toya Wright, she adds that her mom is actually very hands-on with her dating life, but only because she wants to make sure that her daughter is being treated properly. 


While she hasn't been vocal about her dating life in quite a while now, Reginae has been spending a lot more time with Tiny Harris' eldest daughter, Zonnique Pullins. 

Recently, the beautiful women went on a luxury vacation in Dubai with Lil Wayne, celebrating the start of a new year together.
