Lil Wayne's 12-Year-Old Kid -- Reality Show JACKPOT

5/3/2011 3:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lil Wayne's 12-year-old daughter knows a thing or two about "Young Money" ... because she's already making BANK on a BET reality show about her family ... TMZ has learned.


The production company behind "TOYA: A Family Affair" was legally obligated to file a minor's contract with L.A. County Superior court so 12-year-old Reginae Carter could get paid for the show. Lil Wayne and his baby mama Toya Carter signed off on the docs ... which means they give their permission for Reginae to be filmed.

According to the contract, Reginae is pulling in $2,000 an episode -- plus expenses -- with an 11 episode guarantee for the first season ... totaling $22k.

The contract also shows Reginae will get a 5 percent raise for every additional season she is on the show. She even has an account set up so the money she makes will be kept safe until she turns 18 ... in 2016.

Reginae's contract also states the show must provide air transportation if she's required to travel more than 75 miles from her home. But Reginae's no diva -- she's agreed to fly coach.

OR, she could REALLY shock people by going to school, being a decent person, going to college, getting a REAL job and making something of herself.. Ya know, instead of banking off her father’s name at 12 years old by airing all their family business on a reality show.

Good god, where does this end. Why does every celebrity (and celebrity friend, hairdresser, kid, stylist, whatever) think that EVERYONE would want to watch what they do everyday?

Oh yeah, the American people show them they do by actually watching this garbage.

LIL WAYNE'S BABY MAMA? You mean his former wife? You did the same thing to Usher's wife. How come you never refer to white former wives like Kate Gosselin as a baby mamma?

So tired of the lame and senseless reality shows that have taken over television.And sad of seeing all of the Hollywood parents exploiting their children, why can't they just let them be kids for a change? Instead of putting them to work on these lame shows so they can buy $1,000 tennis shoes and show off. Ughh sickening!

@Joe Do you know how racist that sounds dude? Not every African American girl is a hood rat. Get that through your small pea size brain. If you dont like it than why would you read it than comment it? When no one really cares what you think. Im white and I for one am happy for her. Id watch the show for 2 reasons just to spite you and to see what the show was about before I start judging it

I don't watch the show, never seen an episode and won't ever. I hate Tonya's voice and have absolutely no use for her. HOWEVER, I do feel the need to correct your use of the term "baby mama" here and in future stories...Wayne and Tonya were MARRIED. Yes, black folks actually do that. It is very offensive to always read about black women being dismissed as nothing more than a "baby mama"-particularly when that is not the case.

That's his ex-WIFE, not his baby mama.

This is not new news. EVERYONE that is on a reality tv show gets paid something. Also She has been doing this for 2 years. TMZ is late on this one. She was also on Tiny and Toya.

The show is about Reginae's mother, Toya Carter and Toya's family, the little girl just happen to live in the household. And for the record Toya Carter is Lil Wayne's ex-wife not his baby mama!
