Miami Beach rapper Lil Wayne has hired security guards to keep a round-the-clock watch over his ex-wife and their daughter, Gossip Extra has learned.

The Cash Money Records singer plunks down more than $10,000 a month to ensure the safety of BET reality star Toya Wright, whom Wayne divorced in 2007, and their daughter, Reginae.

Why the beefy dudes?

It’s weirder than you think.

Wright, 28, star of Toya: A Family Affair, got married last year to record producer Mickey “Memphitz” Wright. So happens Memphitz has been accused of domestic abuse — so My Homies Still singer Lil Wayne wants to make sure someone’s on hand to keep Memphitz on the straight and narrow.

The allegations of abuse, repeatedly denied by Memphitz, have been a prominent story line on the current season of VH1’s popular Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta. They were made mostly by R&B star and cast member K. Michelle. And it so happens K. Michelle is a former Memphitz squeeze.

“You bet that Lil Wayne is concerned,” a source in Wright’s camp told Gossip Extra. “He mostly wants to make sure their daughter never gets caught in the middle of anything.”

Memphitz’ spokeswoman had no comment.

    Well, at least he cares about his family. I wouldn’t want some knucklehead using them as boxing practice either!
