Toni Braxton Fuels Birdman Relationship Rumors by Appearing With Him Onstage
Are Birdman and Toni Braxton really dating? That's the rumor people are running with concerning the Cash Money Records CEO and the legendary R&B singer and the two are definitely not shy about fanning the flames.
Braxton performed at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta last night (June 2) and although comedian Bill Bellamy was the only special guest promoted for the event, Toni surprised her audience by bringing out all of her sisters, fellow singers Tamar, Trina, Towanda and Traci.
But as the star-studded night wound down, Toni had one more special guest up her sleeve. Motioning for him to join her onstage, Toni said "Give it up for Birdman!" The ATL crowd immediately went crazy and greeted the iced out rap vet with an uproar.
Dating rumors between 47-year-old rap mogul and the 48-year-old songstress have been brewing for years. Even when Birdman left the stage, Toni told the crowd to “respeck that man, ya’ll” playing into the quotable moment Baby made earlier this year while on Power 105's The Breakfast Club. After telling Charlamagne and friends to "put some respek" on his name, Baby then stormed out of the interview. Following that viral moment back in April, Toni and Birdman were spotted together in May during her Brooklyn show. And let's not forget that Toni appeared on the track “Baby You Can Do It” off Cash Money co-founder’s album Birdman back in 2002.
While he seems to be on the road with his girl, Birdman is also dealing with a mutiny of sorts in his own camp. Earlier this week Birdman's protege, Lil Wayne, who he's often called his son in the past, called out the boss by name saying “Fuck the bird man!” during a concert in Phoenix, Ariz. The rift between the two stems from Wayne’s Tha Carter V album, which has yet to be released under Baby's watch and Wayne's disgruntled feelings that Birdman owes him and other Cash Money artists money.
