Karrine "Superhead" Steffans and Lil Wayne enjoyed a brief romance in the past, and although they've since moved on to their own separate relationships, as well as their own career successes, they've maintained a strong bond throughout the years. She opened up to Vibe Vixen recently about how strong her and Wayne's relationship actually is, and how she reacted when news broke that Wayne was suffering from seizures.
"Wayne and I have kept a relationship through my two husbands, his three kids, three additional baby mamas, three of his albums, three of my books, three of his arrests, one year in prison and three engagements on his part. We are indestructible and I find it fascinating. I'm in constant contact with this person every day, every other day. He is a part of my being. I'm not me without him. He makes me very happy, [but] I couldn't be with Wayne. I couldn't live Wayne's life.
"I woke up in the middle of the night and I felt weird. I looked at my phone and had all these missed calls and messages. Some of them were from people that were in Wayne's camp. My whole body started shaking because I didn't know what happened yet. I had to go online and read it because no one was getting back to me right away, of course. I [remember] standing in the bathroom reading about him being sick online and me being really scared. I was in the bathroom pacing until I got the text message back from him, and I just started crying. I got one message back from him and he says, 'Babe, I'm OK.' Everyday after that we've been a little closer. That relationship is everything to me, but it's not what people think it is. It's not sexual and it's not financial. It is very spiritual and he's like my battery pack. When I'm down, when I'm in a really rough space, he always pulls me out of that and he has no idea what he's done for me."
