Lauren London Says When She Got Pregnant With Lil Wayne’s Child, The Public’s Opinion Was The Last Thing On Her Mind
Taking over their June digital issue, Vibe Vixen snags actress Lauren London, just in time to promote her latest film, ‘Baggage Claim‘. While most of us are intrigued by the fact that she’s one of Lil Wayne’s baby mamas, the 28-year-old actress first started off as eye candy on popular music videos with folk like Tyrese and Ludacris. Later, we took even more notice, when she played opposite T.I. in the film ATL as ‘New New’ and moved on to HBO’s ‘Entourage’. Fast forward to the present day and she’s opening up to VV about her love life (“I’m not dating at all. I don’t know if I’ll have the time. But I’m very fiery and sassy, so I need someone to keep up with that.”), trying to remain private while sharing a child with a rock star named Lil Wayne (“If they want to see more of me, go rent your movies or watch the show.”) and what it’s like playing Terrence J’s fiance in the new David E. Talbert film. Peep a few excerpts.
You get a lot of bullsh*t, especially in the media. Have you always had that will to fight back in you?
I’m not going to front. I’m not a lover, I’m a fighter. I will forget that I am Hollywood and get Holly-hood [Laughs].

For starters, what’s the REAL issue between her and cast mate Syleena Johnson? And was she ever in jeopardy of being fired from the show? She also discusses the concept behind ‘Divas and Cocktails’ and whether or not the show has become ‘ratchet.’ Peep a few excerpts below.
