Rapper Birdman confirms his engagement to Toni Braxton on Wendy's show
Birdman made his debut on the Wendy Williams Show where he spoke about the marriage rumors
Speculation has been running amock that Birdman and Toni Braxton might have tied the knot, following the reveal of a trailer by Toni for the new season of Braxton Family Values, which features the singer showing off a large engagement ring. But now, the Cash Money head honcho is finally confirming their romance.
On Tuesday, Birdman, otherwise known as Bryan Williams, made his Wendy Williams Show debut to discuss his relationship with Toni Braxton. Wendy Williams got right down to it, asking Birdman if they're officially a couple, along with her signature question about the couple's sex life.
Birdman responded, saying, "T, that's my girl, my friend, my family… that's my love, my soldier, my life... She's my life. I love her to death." He revealed that the two have been friends for nearly two decades. He explained saying, "I’ve been knowing T for a long time — way back like 17, 18 years. Things just happen.”
Wendy followed up questioning if Toni and Birdman were in fact married due to the large ring Braxton wore in prior public appearances. The New Orleans native reinforced the ring meant, "For life," but he later told the show's host that the duo is yet to get married.
“We’re not married as of yet, but …” he said with a smile.
While on the subject of love, Birdman got real about his struggle to actually find it. Growing up on the streets, he felt alone at an extremely young age, putting all his effort into his business and allowing his music to fulfill his need for love. Falling for Braxton and being accepted by her family, including Braxton's mother, Evelyn, has been a huge blessing for him.
"For me, it was just hard to accept love from them. I think Miss E, Miss Evelyn, she's an angel. She did a great job with all her girls. 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."
The couple previously teased their love life by collaborating on the London On Da Track-produced song "Heart Away" back in January.
