Reports are everywhere that singer Toni Braxton and Birdman secretly married two months ago after theJasmineBRAND published a story that claimed the couple tied the knot. Is it possible that the extremely private couple are now husband and wife?
According to Hollywood Life, a Braxton rep has revealed that the reports of a wedding between the singer and the Cash Money Records co-founder are false. The two have been in a relationship since last year, but they rarely step out together, and they have not taken the big step of walking down the aisle.
At the 2016 BET Awards, the couple appeared together for the first time and confirmed their relationship by posing for pictures together and sitting side-by-side during the show. Even though neither of them has spoken about their relationship, there is one person that is happy about the pair and has given her approval: Toni Braxton’s mother, Evelyn.
She recently told The Rickey Smiley Morning Show, “I think he is a nice man. I don’t care what others say about him. He is a nice man. He is full of respect.”
The Braxton Family Values star started her relationship with Birdman after her marriage to musician Keri Lewis ended in 2013. She met Lewis while touring and married him in 2001. The couple later split in 2009 and their divorce became final four years later. Braxton and Birdman actually met back in 1992 when they collaborated on the track Baby You Can Do It, but waited over two decades to get together.
The Un-break My Heart singer has seemingly had a huge effect on the CEO because he is apparently making an attempt to change his image. Recently, via Instagram, Birdman shared that he has plans to remove his face tattoos.
BET reports that it is possible this evolution is because of Braxton and Birdman’s plans to marry in the future, just like Gucci Mane did when he removed his ice cream tattoo before walking down the aisle.
In addition to her blossoming love life, the 50-year-old singer is also working on a new record. According to Us Weekly, the 7-time Grammy winner will soon be releasing the new single Deadwood from her upcoming album Sex & Cigarettes, which is scheduled for an early 2018 release.
