Toni Braxton's two sons Denim and Diezel paid tribute to their father, Keri Lewis, on Father's Day. They showed their love for him with rarely seen throwback family pictures.
Diezel shared photos on his Instagram story and thanked Keri for everything he had done with a heart-warming photo that included this father and brother walking hand in hand along a sidewalk.
Toni Braxton and Keri were married in 1998 and split almost 12 years later. In a touching memory from his childhood, Diezel shared a photo of his parents together.
The images showed Toni and Lewis posing with their sons as they huddled together for an adorable family picture.
According to theLA Times
, the couple was separated for four years before their divorce was finalized in 2013. At the time, Toni shared her sadness in having to establish a life without her husband.
As Denim paid tribute to Keri on Father's Day, he shared a cute photo of himself as a toddler dressed as a Hersey's chocolate while standing on his father's lap.
Recently, the family had another reason to share their pride when Denim graduated high school. Toni posted a photo of her son dressed in his gown and cap as she shared how proud she was of his accomplishment.
Just days before his graduation, Toni also expressed her fears about her sons venturing on the next chapter in their lives and said, "there's nothing I can do to protect them from the hate because of their beautiful black skin. No matter where they go in this world, I will always be their [Black Mom Worried]."
Toni and Keri also have a lot to celebrate when it comes to their youngest son Diezel. It is reported, Toni revealed in 2016, that her teenager was no longer on the autism spectrum.
The mother of two shared her pride his Diezel's progress and explained that early diagnosis was the key to helping their son.
Although Keri and Toni have managed to maintain a healthy co-parenting relationship, in 2018, Keri lashed out at comments Toni made about their marriage on "The Red Table Talk."
In a since-deleted post, Keri clarified Toni's claims about their divorce, receiving alimony, and the reason behind their split. He admitted that he saw things differently and didn't like some of the things that were said about him.
