Less than a month ago, R&B-soul siren Toni Braxton and her Cash Money Records boss fiancé Birdman dampened the hearts of fans everywhere when signs of a suspected breakup surfaced to Instagram’s horizon.
Neither of the two publicly commented nor confirmed a split, but fans decided that both Toni’s and Baby’s telling social media posts gave them all they needed to know. Apparently, however, there’s much more to it than meets the Instagram timeline after her reaction when he popped up at a recent Atlanta performance of hers.
Toni appeared to have already seen him from the side of the stage before inviting him out, cueing an uproar of joy from concertgoers. The crowd wooed and cheered as the couple gazed at each other onstage, and Toni ran up to wraps her arms around him. The two embrace each other in a long, warm hug, then without much more PDA, she leads him offstage—hand in hand— as the music winds down.
Fans believied Toni hinted at a possible split with her fiancé by way of her first post of the new year. "Starting a new chapter isn’t always an easy choice," she captioned the solo picture of herself donned in a gorgeous red gown. "but ALWAYS choose to be chosen."
Baby's cryptic Instagram Story post around the same time, where he simply wrote, "It's over...," raised eyebrows as well. Well, folks, you can go ahead and lower them back down now that the two have publicly laid the breakup rumors to rest (hopefully) for good.
