From the moment rumors began to swirl that R&B legend Toni Braxton is dating rapper and hip-hop mogul, Birdman, there's been a great deal of fascination, and dare one say, obsession over their alleged love affair.
While the purported couple has never confirmed (nor denied) their relationship, their public sightings--from Braxton's concerts to Birdman's hometown of New Orleans--and more recently sitting side-by-side at the BET Awards, all but affirm their romance.
The general consensus is that Birdman is not good enough to date the likes of Toni Braxton.“They were holding hands.”Braxton, 48, who dressed in a sexy, skin-baring black Bao Tranchi gown, attended the event with her “Y.

He is full of respect."Toni and Birdman first became friends 14 years ago when they collaborated on the 1992 track “Baby You Can Do It.” Evelyn told the radio program that she knew the Cash Money Records cofounder was a winner from the start."I think he is a nice man," the Braxton Family Values matriarch, 68, said during a June 23 appearance on The Rickey Smiley Morning Show. "Ever since I've been knowing that man, he's been phenomenal,” she declared last week.That a 7-time Grammy winner and multi-platinum singer is a fool to date a diamond teeth-wearing, tattooed rapper.Some have gone as far as to flat out say that Birdman is ugly, or as one reader called him: "trash"--though, of course, it was spelled wrong.
