In February 2002, Nivea started dating rapper Lil Wayne. On December 11, 2002, They became engaged. In her July 2003 interview with Sister to Sister magazine, Nivea spoke about her engagement and how Wayne proposed. “Wayne said, ‘I got your Christmas present with me and you’re gonna love it. It’s gonna make you smile. He got down on his knee and he was like, ‘I know I’m young, but I’ve been through enough relationships to know and understand the meaning of what love is.’ He was just perfect. He told me that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with me and he loved me. It was snot and tears at the same time.” She also spoke on her wishes to have a son with the rapper. “I want a little boy very much right now. Wayne’s daughter is just wonderful. She’s a beautiful little girl.” Nivea credited Wayne as being her first love. She said that if they didn’t get married, that she would die a single woman. In August 2003, Lil Wayne called off his engagement to Nivea and became engaged to his daughter’s mother, Antonia Wright.
Nivea married R&B singer and producer Terius “The-Dream” Nash in December 2004. Their daughter Navy Talia Nash was born on May 10, 2005, and their twin sons London Nash and Christian Nash in April 2006. The couple divorced in 2007. Nash stated in an interview, “I decided to end it because I didn’t want to take this person [Nivea] and treat them a certain way based on what I was changing into, based on being bitter.” However, Nivea says The-Dream wanted the divorce, not she. “I’m lying, it’s not. We’re supposed to say that, but it’s not true. It wasn’t no mutual agreement, he wanted to do it, I didn’t, but it’s done. I’m dealing with it.”After her divorce in 2007, Nivea reconciled with her ex-fiance, rapper Lil Wayne. Nivea stayed with Lil Wayne after he had a son with his ex-girlfriend in 2008. On June 9, 2009 it was rumored that Nivea and Lil Wayne were engaged and expecting a child together. See Why Lil Wayne’s Ex Nevia Is The Smartest Baby Mama Of All Time
