Braxton performed at The Fox Theatre Wednesday, Jan. 23, and the rapper walked onstage, surprising the singer and her thousands of fans.
Birdman arrived on stage and gave his rumored former fiancée a big hug. After a warm embrace, Braxton led the Cash Money Records founder offstage hand in hand.
Fans immediately began sharing their thoughts on what appears to be a reconciliation between the longtime friends turned-couple.
“I wasn’t giving up on them I knew they was going to show up and show out.”
“👏🏻🙌🏻 I just want her to be happy! She deserves it😭♥️”
“Aww Toni! He pulled a ‘offset.’ 😂 He better do her right that’s all I know.”
Braxton confirmed her engagement to Birdman in February 2018 and, after initially stating they’d walk down the aisle in August, Braxton delayed the nuptials for unknown reasons.
“B and I got engaged seven months ago, but we haven’t set a date because of my schedule,” Braxton said in an episode of “Braxton Family Values” last year. “I hate that. You’re supposed to set a date and stick to it. But unfortunately, in our business, it can be challenging sometimes.”
By December, a date still had not been announced and Braxton revealed that her man had given her an ultimatum about a wedding date.
“My guy said I have to pick a date by the end of the year,” she told E!’s “Daily Pop” last year. “We have to get married before the year is out. He said ‘before next year.'”
Braxton’s admission came a month after she confessed her engagement ring was stolen on a Delta flight from New York City to Los Angeles.
By the new year, evidence surfaced on her Instagram page that she and Birdman were no longer an item.
“Starting a new chapter isn’t always an easy choice… but ALWAYS choose to be chosen. Cheers to a new year 🥂” Braxton wrote on her Instagram page Jan. 1.
Birdman himself posted and then deleted a telling memo on his IG Story writing, “It’s over…” the next day.
