Toni Braxton and Birdman are in the news a lot lately and it’s just not because she has new music either or in relation to her reality WE series, Braxton Family Values. However, she did take a moment to drop an announcement which may or may not have surprised her fans.
Toni Braxton tweeted “I’m engaged!” the other day while flashing her blinding diamond ring at her fans. She made the announcement but she doesn’t share who’s the buyer. It doesn’t matter cause we all believe it to be the excessively tatted rapper and mogul, Birdman himself.
The couple has been dating since 2016 but made it public during the BET awards that year. Toni Braxton and Birdman kept their relationship a secret in the beginning but the word is out now. People are talking – especially Wendy Williams.
Catch the Birdman Singing on Wendy Williams
Did you watch the show with Birdman as her quest? You can catch the show here if you’d like. But someone told Wendy and other sources that the two may have been married already. Hey! Toni’s sister, Tamar Braxton said she thought they were hitched as well.
"T, that's my girl, my friend, my family… that's my love, my soldier, my life. She's my life. I love her to death."—Birdman https://t.co/NYUo10gsGq

Tamar did quite a bit of talking while their mom was in the hospital a couple years back. He came to see Ms. Evelyn while she was recovering. In fact, this is what she said:
“I think that’s my brother-in-law, I do,” she said. “I think they eloped. ‘Cause he was there in the way like a brother-in-law.”
Well, it kinda made sense to me after hearing Wendy Williams mention the ring Toni Braxton is wearing is a wedding ring and not an engagement ring. Oh!!! Where do they do that at? In either case, they are denying all charges of a secret ceremony.
Are They Telling a Lie or Is It a Rumor?
The JasmineBrand help to distribute that rumor if it is indeed a rumor. The truth is yet to be revealed if you ask me. If they [Toni and Bird] would deny their relationship when there was a relationship, they would deny a marriage. I’m just saying… you know.
We all know the co-founder of Cash Money Records ain’t really on the up-and-up, according to Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, DJ Khalid and other celebrities. I mean, they really could be faking a relationship since they aren’t seen much with each other. Who knows the real deal?
Sure, they’ve known each other a long time – they go way back. They worked on a song together. Do you remember back in ’92 a song called “Baby You Can Do It?” I really didn’t either so I pulled it up and thought they did look cute as a couple when they were younger.
New Music from Toni Braxton and Birdman
But what’s really interesting is the song “Heart Away.” I think you will like that piece. It’s another duet with some hot and sexy lyrics. Oh yeah, that track is sweet right there. In fact, I put it on the 11ahleven Playlist Vol ll but okay, back to the topic at hand, Toni Braxton and Birdman.
Whatever we may feel about their relationship, Toni’s mom, Evelyn Braxton, blesses the union. Uh huh, she sure does. In fact, she says:
“I think he is a nice man,” she said during an appearance on The Rickey Smiley Morning Show. “I don’t care what others say about him.
He is a nice man. He is full of respect.”
Before Toni Braxton and Birdman Was a Couple
You know Toni was married before to a musician named Keri Lewis. The jumped the broom in 2001 but changed their minds in 2009 and later finalized the decision with a divorce in 2013. While they didn’t stay together for very long, they have two sons, Diezel and Denim.
Birdman, on the other hand, has a son and a daughter [by the same woman] who he says he cherishes. He has never been married before although he has at least had a dinner date with Kimora Simmons, Trina and Keyshia Cole.
Well, I don’t know about you but I’m kind of excited about the new album, Sex & Cigarettes. It drops next month in March . In the meantime, talk to me about this relationship. What are your thoughts? Do you think they’re married already? Is this a game or what?
