BY: NISHA THOMAS
Famous reality star Toya Wright’s two brothers, Rudy and Josh Johnson, were both shot and killed in New Orleans early this morning, Sunday, July 31st, according to reports.
New Orleans police have discovered that the two young men were shot multiple times inside of a car in the city’s 7th Ward just shortly after midnight on Sunday morning. The victims of the shooting were pronounced dead at the scene of the crime, according to the New Orleans Police Department.
Even though officials still have yet to confirm the identities of the men, Wright’s family members have confirmed that the victims were in fact her brothers, according to a local news outlet, NOLA.com.
This sudden and heartbreaking news only comes just three days after Wright had reportedly filed for divorce from her husband, Mickey ‘Memphitz’ Wright, after being married for a total of five years. She was previously married to Lil’ Wayne, whom she shares a 17-year-old daughter with. They were married from February of 2004 to January of 2006.
Right after the news had broken of Wright’s brothers, several stars took it upon themselves to reach out and send their love.

We are hopeful that her family makes it through such a trying time. This is just too much for one person to handle.
