FAMILY TIES

THE TRUTH ABOUT TONI'S HEALTH 

Toni had been open in the past about having lupus. In 2010, she disclosed this after she was diagnosed with the autoimmune disease. She said it wasn't serious but it had to be monitored. 

Following her diagnosis, fans of her family's show, "Braxton Family Values" witnessed how her condition affected her way of life. It affected her heart and she would often feel tired. She even canceled a few shows in 2016 due to the illness.

WEDDING ISSUES

Toni is engaged to hip-hop tycoon Birdman though nothing has been set in stone regarding their wedding. Back in September, she revealed they haven't decided on a wedding date because of their conflicting schedules.

Shortly thereafter, fans suspected Toni and Birdman were pulling a surprise wedding in Las Vegas when she posted a photo revealing she was on her way there. 

It's safe to assume fans were wrong because there was no news of a wedding after. If indeed Toni is at the hospital in Atlanta or rehearsing in LA now, we hope she's in good health.
