Birdman Surprises Toni Braxton On Stage
Breakup to makeup?
Birdman pulled an Offset when he surprised his ex Toni Braxton on stage during her “As Long As I Live Tour” in Atlanta on Wednesday night (Jan. 23).
The singer was performing “I Love Me Some Him” at the Fox Theatre when the Cash Money mogul walked on stage. Toni seemed happy to see her ex-fiancé and they shared a long embrace while the crowd cheered. She then held his hand and they walked offstage together.
The two announced their separation earlier this year with cryptic posts on Instagram. Birdman wrote, “It’s over…,” while Toni also alluded to the breakup. “Starting a new chapter isn’t always an easy choice,” she said, “but ALWAYS choose to be chosen. Cheers to a new year.”
According to E! News, the couple may be reconciling. “In person, it seemed that Toni Braxton and Birdman had definitely reconciled—but it was hard to tell if his appearance at her show was actually a surprise, or if Toni knew he was there ahead of time,” said one concertgoer. “Toni didn’t appear shocked to some members of the audience, because she looked right over in that direction before Birdman walked out.”
The couple, who has been friends for 17 years, began dating in 2016. They announced their engagement in February 2018 after Birdman proposed with a $5 million ring. In April, Braxton said she was planning a Great Gatsby-themed wedding before the end of 2018.
“That’s my girl, my friend, my family,” Birdman previously told Wendy Williams. “That’s my love, my soldier, my life… She’s my life. I love her to death.”
