Toni Braxton husband
Toni Braxton started her path to the music fame in 1989 when she created The Braxtons girl band with her sisters. However, seeing no perspectives as a member of the band, Toni proceeded with her solo career and recorded an eponymous debut album in 1993. It earned 8-time platinum certification and turned a singer into a world-known star.
In 1996, Braxton released Secrets album, which comprised her greatest hit Un-Break My Heart and became her best-selling album to date. In total, the music artist has recorded 9 studio albums, including the one in collaboration with Babyface. Moreover, in 2015, she returned to The Braxtons to create a Christmas album.
Toni Braxton’s incredible music talent brought her various accolades, among which are 7 Grammys and 7 American Music Awards.
Moreover, Braxton tried her hand at acting. For instance, she had parts in Kingdom Come plus The Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure films. She also played in a couple of Broadway productions.
In 2011, Toni launched reality series Braxton Family Values, where she appeared with her mom and siblings. And later, she became an executive of reality show Tamar & Vince, starring the celebrity’s sister and her spouse.
In 2001, Braxton tied knots with music artist Keri Lewis. In 2001, their firstborn, son Denim, drew his first breath. In 2003, the family expanded by another boy named Diezel. Toni and Keri’s marriage was dissolved in 2013 though they broke up 4 years earlier. Since 2016, she has been romantically linked to rap artist Bryan Williams who is more famed as Birdman.
Moreover, in her autobiography, Braxton revealed that she was pregnant with her first child with Lewis prior to their marriage and decided to make an abortion as she was on the prescription acne medication at that time. Now, she thinks that her younger son’s autism is the God’s punishment for that decision.
A curious fact: in 2011, Toni was offered to pose for Playboy magazine but she refused because of her young sons.
