The internet is abuzz with talks of nuptials. After preparing for the budgetless wedding of the century between Keyshia Kai’or and Atlanta legend Gucci Mane, the cyber world was floored after rumors surfaced that longtime couple Toni Braxton and Birdman are actually husband and wife.
According to The Grio the two have kept their marriage under wraps for the last two months in an effort to keep their private life away from the public eye.
“They don’t want anyone to know yet. They’re trying to keep it secret, just like their relationship. They tried for as long as they could to deny that they were actually together,” the source said. “They’re so in love with each other. I’m surprised that they even waited this long to do it.”
Younger Braxton, Tamar hinted at the event taking place when she called Birdman a “brother-in-law” to the family.
Despite the news being great to hear, Twitter took the opportunity to go in on the couple offering both congratulations and jokes for the couple’s rumored union.

It wasn’t only Twitter who had jokes, Maybach Music head honcho Rick Ross had questions regarding whether or not the Cash Money CEO had finally paid his “son”/artist Lil Wayne after Birdman dropped a few bars his way via Instagram warning Ross to mind his business.
“I be hearing all you niggas talking about this Lil Wayne shit. Lil Wayne this, Lil Wayne that. Bitch, Lil Wayne my son. I raised him. He ain’t have nothing. I brought him to be something and got something. Bitch, you don’t think I’m gonna make sure he straight? Suck a nigga dick, bitch. I’m what you call a fucking real mastermind, you lil’ bitty bitch. You heard me? And if you cross my line… you already know… I ain’t even gotta tell ya. You know what type of nigga I am.”
Ross, who has repeatedly and openly questioned Birdman about this and the situation with DJ Khaled, hopped on Snapchat calling out to Birdman directly with even more jokes saying:
“Boy, you a year late, and five years late paying that man his money. Pay that man his money. We know you ain’t right. Stop with the jokes, nigga. Bring that shit. Bring it.”
Rick Ross then continued to go in on Birdman, even incorporating the hashtag #PAYDATMAN as he continued with his inquisition.
“It just ran across my mind. And I said, ‘damn, I wonder if Birdman paid that man yet?’ Pay that man. Pay that man,” Ross said. “Man, that man sold a million his first week. Goddamn, what a nigga gotta do to get his money? What that man gotta do for you to pay him? Sell 10 million in the first two days? Then you’ll pay that man? God damn… Man, let you sweet niggas ride around clean for a long time, man. Gon’ get a loan and pay that man. You know what I don’t like really the most about this shit is the fact that y’all two fightin’ each other instead of y’all two fighting the white people. You switched out on him.”
Toni and Birdman are reportedly planning a private ceremony for friends and family soon.
