Birdman and Toni Braxton may have finally married after an on-again, off-again relationship. The two lovebirds were engaged for a long time, and Braxton promised to marry Birdman by the end of 2020. Braxton’s sister hinted about the couple’s marriage in a recent Instagram post.
Toni Braxton and Birdman’s romance has seen its ups and downs.
When fans in Birdman’s hometown saw Braxton holding hands with the rap entrepreneur, rumours about their romance began to circulate. Birdman reportedly backed the singer for her performance at the inaugural Grammy Park event in 2016, according to TMZ.
At the 2016 BET Awards, they made their red carpet debut together. Birdman was famously serenaded by Braxton at his 48th birthday event in New Orleans a few months later. Braxton’s video of him singing to Birdman was re-posted by The Shade Room.
During season 6 of Braxton Family Values, she revealed their relationship. He’s appeared on the show multiple times. Braxton had a large diamond on her ring finger for months before announcing their engagement on the show.
Unfortunately, the couple would only be together for a short time. Braxton said she’d misplaced her engagement ring at first, but then erased all photographs of Birdman from her social media accounts, leaving followers to believe they’d broken up. Birdman also hinted at the breakup with a mysterious message on his social media.
They eventually reconciled Toni acknowledged in an Atlanta radio appearance that the public’s perception of her relationship influenced her.
“There were a lot of people saying stuff when we were out, and I’m a little sensitive.” It’s impossible for me to deny. “Plus, I’d like to keep our business quiet,” she added. “I’m fine with people asking me questions. It’s just that sometimes, I think socially if you’re reading about anything, people have too much of any opinion, and I didn’t enjoy it. So we made the decision to live a peaceful life.”
Toni Braxton and Birdman may be getting married, according to Tamar Braxton’s Instagram post.
Braxton promised to marry Birdman before the end of 2020, after seemingly breaking up and making up multiple times. Braxton revealed the reason for the delay in wedding plans during an interview with The Rickey Smiley Morning Show.
“We’ve gone back and forth on wedding dates, and we’ve had some fantastic dates, but it’s getting too huge now.” She explained, “We didn’t want a big wedding.” Her rapper beau wanted a “drive-thru” quickie wedding, which she was fiercely opposed to. “I’m like, ‘We’re not going to the drive-thru, and I’m not going to order fries once we are married.'” We’ve been trying to figure it out for a long time.” Despite this, she stated that she will eventually become Mrs. Birdman.
It appears as if the two have leapt the broom. Tamar Braxton, Braxton’s younger sister, shared a strange remark on her Instagram account. Tamar captioned an old photo of her eldest sister and Birdman holding hands, “Congratulations love birds.” Tamar also included kisses, heart eyes, an exclamation mark, and an eye roll emoji among her emojis.
Fans feel Tamar’s message is a clue that Braxton and Birdman will announce their engagement. The 15th of February is Birdman’s birthday. On their various social media profiles, the other Braxton siblings wished him a happy birthday, but none of them added words like Tamar’s.
Tamar is the one who has spoken up the most regarding her sister’s relationship. She earlier stated that she thought they had eloped, which Braxton disputed.
Toni Braxton and Birdman’s Relationship: Strange Facts
When allegations surfaced that R&B singer Toni Braxton was dating Cash Money Records billionaire Brian “Birdman” Williams, the music industry was taken aback. Braxton and Birdman were rumoured to have “hooked up” a few times before TMZ revealed their affair in a May 2016 post. “Our sources claim they’re trying to keep it under wraps, which they have done up until now,” the gossip mag reported.
Braxton introduced her rapper fiancé on stage during a concert in June 2016, and the two made their formal red carpet debut at the BET Awards later that month. Birdman has reportedly lavished her with presents since then, including a $250,000 Bentley SUV in August 2016, but he took things to the next level in February 2018 when he proposed to her with a big engagement ring. Viva la bling!
Although it is said that opposites attract, this covert affair is a puzzle. The “Un-Break My Heart” singer is regarded as an R&B classic and total darling, but Birdman has a shady track record in the music industry. Birdman may have tried to rush to the altar via a drive-thru wedding, according to the couple’s divorce reports. Oh, and as for that wedding, it might or might not happen! Toni Braxton and Birdman’s relationship has a lot of weird aspects to it.
While she was married to someone else, he fell in love with her.
Toni Braxton and Birdman have a long history together. They collaborated for the first time in 2002 on Birdman’s song “Baby You Can Do It.” The rapper, dressed in gigantic, aunties-appropriate garb, raps about “hoodrats” and “full-length leathers” in the music video, while Braxton coos her way through the chorus in various teeny-tiny clothes.
Although their chemistry is off the charts, Braxton was still a newlywed at the time the video was shot. In 2001, she married Keri Lewis (shown, right), a member of the Mint Condition band, and the couple delivered their first child, Denim Cole Braxton Lewis, in December 2001.
Was that hot Birdman video actually about something? It certainly sounds like it, because Birdman let the cat out of the bag when conversing with Braxton’s sister, Towanda Braxton, on an episode of Braxton Family Values (via E! News). He says, “I’ve been in love with [Toni] for 20 years.” That would indicate he fell in love with her when she was married to someone else, but at the very least he patiently awaited Braxton’s divorce in 2013.
