Toni Braxton's son Diezel looks all grown up in photo with his mother and Birdman
Diezel Braxton, the son of Toni Braxton, took to Instagram to share a slideshow portraying him next to a couple of friends, his mother, and rapper Birdman.
In the image, the 15-year-old boy appeared sitting wearing a black outfit and white shoes. One of the most striking aspects of the post was his beautiful, long, and curly hair that made him look both tough and stylish.
His mother Toni and her fiancée, Birdman, were also part of the picture. Both of them were wearing black clothes, too. While the image was great, the message that Diezel shared in the caption attracted a lot of attention.
“Diezel doesn’t smile in pics. Diezel is only famous because of his mom. Diezel is only famous cause he had autism. Diezel should cut his hair. Ya ya we know [sic],” admitted the boy.
As soon as he uploaded that photo, his followers took to the comment section to share their thoughts. Some of them admitted that he and his friends looked “amazing” in it, while others seemed surprised to learn that there are people who say all those negative things he wrote in the caption.
The second part of the slideshow portrayed a person, whose face was not visible, with the word “ANT” in white. “ANT” is the name of their upcoming independent film, and the people around him were his fellow co-stars.
A PROUD MOTHER
Toni, as any proud mother would do, also shared that posted and wrote in the caption that she was excited about the fact that her son would star in the forthcoming film. Unfortunately, there is still not much information about it on the web.
It has been an amazing year for Diezel as he signed a contract with Wilhemina Models, one of the most renowned model agencies in the US, a couple of months ago. He has overcome his early autism diagnose, a condition that according to experts, never goes away entirely but can be treated to teach the children how to engage and have a better life.
TALKING ABOUT HER SON’S AUTISM
In 2015, Toni addressed that situation saying that she was one of the “lucky” parents. She added that early diagnosis changed everything. “I will tell you this. I will shout it from the rooftops. My son Diezel is off the spectrum. Off the spectrum being autistic,” added the singer.
“He’s our social butterfly. He’s the one who plays with friends and hangs out all the time. Very, very fortunate. And I don’t like to think there’s anything wrong with our babies. I just think they learn differently,” continued Toni.
Recently, the singer made headlines by unveiling her stunning figure and new look in a gorgeous promo pic of her upcoming “As Long As I Live” tour, which is expected to star in early 2019.
THE PROMO PIC
In the black-and-white post, the singer appeared wearing a beautiful long gown with a dark belt cinched in around her waist that made her look gorgeous. Other impressive aspects of her dress were the deep V-cut design and her high leg slit.
For the tour, Toni will bring fellow R&B icons Sisters With Voices (SWV) in support of her newest album titled “Sex & Cigarettes.” The first concert is expected to be in Columbia, SC, and the last one (so far) is planned to take place in Los Angeles, CA.
