Toni Braxton and Birdman are set to be married and the singer wants a Great Gatsby-themed wedding for her big day, according to Page Six.
The 50-year-old told People that because of her age and her previous marriage she wants a big celebration. “This is my second wedding, and I’m over 40. It’s like Carrie Bradshaw, the last bride. It’ll be elegant and a little sexy.” Birdman is one to flash as the Cash Money mogul embedded his company with the ostentatious ideology. Braxton will likely get all the glitz and glam she wants for the day of her nuptials.
Braxton also spoke about how her relationship with Birdman went from a friendship to a more intimate one. “He’s been my bestie for like 15 or 16 years.” When she had her most recent health scare because of her lupus Birdman made things more serious. “Every day I had a show, he came,” Braxton revealed.
There has been no public announcement about the date of the wedding. After months of speculating rumors, Toni and Birdman made their relationship public on the most recent season of Braxton Family Values.
