Birdman is in love?
Birdman, now known as the petulant hothead of hip hop, strolled through the BET Awards with some iconic eye candy on his arm. He and Toni Braxton sat together at the show and, at times, showed off some PDA. According to Us Weekly, the two were seen “holding hands” and “spent some time backstage.”
Toni Braxton’s mother approves of Birdman.
The 48-year-old songstress had no problem walking down the carpet with her new beau. Last week, her mother chimed in on the relationship when she was on the The Rickey Smiley Morning Show. “I think he is a nice man,” said Evelyn Braxton. “I don’t care what others say about him. He is a nice man. He is full of respect.”
Toni and Bird started off as friends in 2002.
Before the two became an item, they collaborated on Toni’s single “Baby You Can Do It” back in 2002. Toni’s mom said she always knew that Birdman was a man with a lot of promise. “Ever since I’ve been knowing that man, he’s been phenomenal,” she exclaimed.
