Toni Braxton Talks Tragedy and Triumph on ‘Behind the Music’

Toni Braxton’s life was made for a “Behind the Music” special. The sultry songstress, who has sold over 60 million records worldwide and won six Grammys, opened up about everything from bankruptcy (“I was humiliated”) to battling lupus to her son’s autism last night on VH1.

The preacher’s daughter got her start with her sisters The Braxtons, but was eventually faced with the tough decision of choosing family over a solo career and living with the guilt. She also reflected on getting reprimanded by Oprah on national television, finding love, and starting a family, with commentary from those who know her best including Babyface, L.A. Reid, her sisters, and mother.

Watch Toni share her story in the full “Behind the Music” episode.
