A little over a month after Toni Braxton revealed she lost her diamond engagement ring, given to her by her then-fiance Birdman, the “Un-Break My Heart” singer hinted that the two have called off their upcoming wedding. “Starting a new chapter isn’t always an easy choice…but ALWAYS choose to be chosen,” she captioned a photo of her wearing a red plunging-neck gown on Tuesday (January 1), after removing every photo from her Instagram account. “Cheers to a new year 🥂.”
Birdman also seemed to confirm split rumors when he wrote “It’s over…” to his Instagram Story before clearing his entire IG account of all photos.
Adding to the break-up news, the two also no longer follow each other on Instagram.
Toni and Birdman, who were friends for 17 years, announced their engagement in February 2018. And in November, the 51-year-old singer announced that she and Birdman were planning to get married before the end of 2018. “He said I have to pick a date by the end of the year,” she said on E! News’ Daily Pop. “We have to get married before the year is out… He said, ‘Before next year.'”
