Lauren London revealed that she and Lil Wayne were engaged prior to her giving birth to their son.

In a recent interview with author, educator and speaker Kathleen Cross,  the actress addressed rumors that the birth of her son came out of a fling with New Orleans native. She said that she has been friends with Weezy for years. "I met Dwayne when I was 15-years-old,” said the former Sean John spokesmodel. “I’ve known him a very long time, and we were in a relationship that didn’t make it. We tried more than once to revive it, and we were engaged briefly years ago, but we eventually parted ways. People see the 'Lil Wayne' persona and think they know who he really is. My son’s father is an intelligent, loving and lovable person who will always be a dear friend. That is all."

Although London became pregnant around the same time singer Nivea was pregnant with Wayne's child, the mother’s get along well. "We are all good-hearted women who love our children and we want them to know each other,” the actress said. “Real friendships have grown from that foundation and the result has been more love, less drama and less trauma for our kids."

London is currently starring in the Queen Latifah-produced original scripted VH1 series called Single Ladies, which premieres on the network tonight at 9/8 p.m. Central. The show, which also stars Lisa Raye and Stacy Dash, centers on a group of best friends with different philosophies on sex and relationships. —Nicole LoPresti
