There will always be love between Lil Wayne and his ex-wife Toya Wright but that doesn’t mean the pair will be revisiting their romantic relationship anytime soon.
After the hit-making rapper posted a photo of her on Instagram, fans began holding on to hope that the friendly exes were reuniting once again. Sorry, folks. It’s not happening. While visiting the ladies on daytime talk show The Real, Wright set the record straight once and for all.

If nothing else, it’s good to know Wayne and Toya still share a special bond. While rekindling things isn’t high on Toya’s priority list, whose to say what the universe has in store for these two?
