Birdman On Fiancée Toni Braxton: 'I Love Her To Death'
Birdman is madly in love with fiancée, Toni Braxton, the rapper pronounced after their engagement was officially announced on television.
In an interview at The Wendy Williams Show, the 49-year-old Born Stunna singer reveals personal details about his love life.
"That's my love, my soldier, my life. She my everything ... She my life. I love her to death," Birdman said when Williams asked if they already had sex. Birdman further explained that he has known Toni for 18 years and that their relationship was an act of fate.
In September last year, Toni's brother, Tamar, also guested on the same show alleging that his sister and Birdman got married. Tamar's statement stirred speculations, but none of it were proved to be true.
During his interview, Birdman clarifies that he and the Un-break My Heart singer are not yet married but are currently happily engaged. Williams admitted her disdain for the rapper's image, adding that she thinks the relationship was not good from the start.
"I'm just a gangsta. That don't mean nothing. Certified, too. What that gotta do with love?" Birdman responded.
Growing up, Birdman, named Bryan Williams in real life, had a difficult childhood. He managed to survive on the streets alone. Soon enough, he was able to discover his passion for music.
"For me, just growing up in the streets, not having the word love, it was hard for me to accept them loving me and appreciating the love that I brought to the table."
Speaking about Toni and her kin, Birdman said he feels blessed to have been accepted by the Braxton family. He made reference to Toni's mother, Evelyn, and even called her an "angel."
Earlier on Feb. 20, Braxton announced her engagement as seen in the trailer for the upcoming season of Braxton Family Values. The Braxton sisters, Trina and Towanda, were both thrilled by the news as the 50-year-old artist flashes her engagement ring.
The multi-platinum singer and the rapper were reported officially as a couple in June 2016 during the BET Awards.
Braxton was previously married to Keri Lewis in 2001 before they got divorced in 2013. They had two sons together, Denim Cole Braxton-Lewis, 16, and Diezel Ky Braxton-Lewis, 14.
Meanwhile, Birdman also had adult children from a previous relationship named Bryan Williams Jr. and Bria Williams. His eldest, Bryan, is graduating from college next year.
