Niveas relationships with her famous exes are far from Complicated.
The singer tells Page Six exclusively that both Lil Wayne (n Dwayne Michael Carter Jr.) and Terius The-Dream Nash, the fathers of her children, readily supported her decision to pursue love on Peacocks new reality dating show, Queens Court.
I told Wayne about it. He was like, Oh, wow, do your thing. I know its going to be a great experience, she says, recalling a conversation with the Lollipop rapper, 40, with whom she shares 13-year-old son Neal.
He was just cheering me on, the Grammy-nominated star adds.
Meanwhile, Nivea, 41, notes that her former spouse, The-Dream, 45 with whom she shares daughter Navy, 17, and twin sons London and Christian, 16 was excited to see her sparkling sense of humor shine through onscreen.
Dream was like, Oh, wow, this is crazy. Youre gonna make everyone laugh! says the mother of four.
And they were just very supportive and I think, like me, like, Who knows what could come out of it? Why not?
Nivea who rose to fame in the early aughts for a succession of hit singles, including Dont Mess With My Man, Laundromat, Okay and Complicated participated in Queens Court alongside fellow leads Tamar Braxton and Evelyn Lozada.

The trio explored connections with dozens of men to figure out who was worthy of being their King.
While both Braxton, 46, and Lozada, 47, got engaged on the series finale, Nivea tearfully dumped both of her finalists, Mark Mac Anthony and Ty but only after learning to prioritize herself when navigating romantic partnerships.
The show helped me get to a place where I realized that I was OK with being alone and it really launched me into my self-love journey, which Im so grateful for, she explains.
As great as all the guys were, especially Mac and Ty, there is still so much more work to do and I want to really fall in love with myself again before I open up my world to another man.
Potential suitors are often intimidated by the magnitude of Niveas life namely, her legacy in the music industry and her close co-parenting dynamics with Lil Wayne and The-Dream, artists who have each left an indelible mark on the landscape of hip-hop, rap and R&B.
Its always [been] different, whether it showed up in [men] pretending to not be fazed or care at all, to try to compete, to just give up completely after so long, she says.
It is what it is. Its a very unorthodox lifestyle.
Although men may come and go, Nivea says the love that she, Lil Wayne and the “Falsetto” musician have for their kids remains constant.
Thank God for the people that co-created and made these babies, honey, she says.
Because if it werent for us and I mean this with each and every woman and man involved we all have the understanding that its about the children and thats a blessing.
Notably, Lil Wayne also shares daughter Reginae, 24, with ex-wife Toya Johnson, son Dwayne, 14, with Sarah Vivan and son Kameron, 13, with Lauren London.
For his part, The-Dream also welcomed daughter Violet, 13, with ex-wife Christina Milian and young sons Heir and Lord and daughters Maverick andlyses with his current wife, LaLonne Martinez.Additionally, he shares a son with ex Lydia Lam.
Look how many of us it is! Nivea enthuses, joking that the modern family could front their own unscripted series.
I mean, they wouldnt do it, she acknowledges. I would because that would be hilarious, right? But thank God that we understand, child, these babies [are] here and we respect each other as people and in business. So, its love.
Queens Court is available to stream on Peacock.
