But over the summer, we’re told, the coupe decided to jump the broom. A person close to Birdman explained, “Birdman is very private – he doesn’t want his business out on social media or on some reality shows.”

“[Birdman] wanted to get married and he decided that she was the woman for him, so they did it,” the friend added.

The ceremony – which was held in a private resort in Mexico was attended by only close family and friends.

The friend added that Birdman and Toni have asked family members to keep the marriage quiet, because they don’t want to maintain their privacy.

Don’t worry Toni and Birdman …. we won’t tell anybody!!

In the late 1980s, Braxton began performing with her sisters in a music group known as The Braxtons; the group was signed to Arista Records. After attracting the attention of producers Antonio “L.A.” Reid and Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds and being signed to LaFace Records, Braxton released her self-titled debut studio album in 1993. The album reached number one on the Billboard 200 chart and sold 10 million copies worldwide. In addition, the singles “Another Sad Love Song” and “Breathe Again” became international successes. The album brought Braxton three Grammy Awards, including the Grammy for Best New Artist.
