*Trina is spilling the tea on past relationships while promoting the Jan. 1 debut of VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop: Miami,” which features the Miami rapper as a cast member.
She says her breakup from Lil Wayne was drama-free, but her split from NBA star Kenyon Martin — who once had her lips tattooed on his neck — was more complicated, she told Page Six.
Trina, 39, says of Wayne, whom she dated for a year in 2005, “It would have been perfect if the timing was now, because then we were too young … You really don’t want to be tied down at 22 … He was the first person that I dated in the industry — I was really young, and he was really young, and he was my great friend.”
Regarding Martin, whom she nearly married but broke up with in 2010, Trina says: “I was so deep in love. Almost married, five-year relationship.” But, “It’s guys, you know? They are not honest, they are not truthful at times … The fact that you are walking around branded with my lips … and the fact that I don’t have anything tattooed of you on me? It was just one of those things that you believed in something solid … and it just became bad. I just had to walk away,” she says. “It was just not a good situation for me to be in,” while “Wayne was honest and had a pure heart.”
Martin’s current wife made him cover up the lips tattoo.
