AceShowbiz - Toni Braxton and Birdman's split rumor may have been reignited, thanks to Wendy Williams. In the Monday, November 25 episode of "The Wendy Williams Show", the 55-year-old television personality weighed in on the R&B singer's performance at the 2019 American Music Awards. While she praised Toni's performance on Sunday night, she couldn't help noticing her missing engagement ring from Birdman.
"When I turned on the AMAs, the first thing I saw was the unstoppable Toni Braxton," Wendy said. She went on raving about the 52-year-old songstress' look at the award event, "Honey, this woman doesn't age. She performed the heck out of 'Un-Break My Heart'. They swung the camera to the audience, people knew the words, she hasn't been to the AMAs since 25 years ago, unbelievable to me."
She continued, "I loved the natural hair, it's all thick and curled, the makeup was tasteful, the dress was great," before asking, "but where was her engagement ring?" A curious Wendy admitted she "was tempted to call" Toni's sister Tamar Braxton to get an answer to her question, "but Tamar is that faulty friend who doesn't answer her phone."
She added of Toni, "I love her, but she wasn't wearing her ring. She's engaged to Birdman. I mean, a lot of women don't wear their rings, it's not a big deal. I just didn't think she was one of them. I'm just confused."
Toni and Birdman have been together since May 2016 and got engaged in February 2018. They sparked a split rumor in January 2019 with cryptic posts on Instagram. "It's over," 50-year-old Birdman wrote, while 52-year-old Toni posted about "starting a new chapter" in her life.
Just weeks later, they sparked reconciliation speculation after he surprised her onstage during her concert at the Fox Theater in Atlanta. In April, they confirmed that they are still together.
