Amid rumors that Birdman and Toni Braxton have tied the knot, the singer's rep has spoken out to Us Weekly and unequivocally denied those whispers as simply that - whispers.

The statement doesn't reveal too much beyond that, however. Her spokesperson admitted that the 50-year-old R&B legend is dating, but there was no confirmation that the mystery man was in fact the Cash Money Records head honcho. Instead, her rep turned her attention to Braxton's music, saying that she “has a new single called ‘Deadwood’ from her forthcoming album Sex & Cigarettes." Fans can expect that full-length project to drop in the early part of 2018.

Jasmine Brand was one of several outlets that reported earlier this week of Birdman and Braxton's secret nuptials. The couple have been a rumored item since last summer, when Birdman appeared onstage with Braxton during one of her shows at Atlanta's Fox Theater. According to those close to Toni, the romance could be something that's been in the works for several years. "Toni been knowing him... 15 years ago something like that," Evelyn Braxton said last year. "Ever since I’ve been knowing that man, he’s been phenomenal. So let me say, I hope so." Neither member of the alleged couple have publicly confirmed any dating rumors, but there have been other signs that lead many to speculate them to be true. For example, Birdman did rush to Braxton's side when she was hospitalized for Lupus last year. At the very least, they're good friends,

Birdman has been in the news for other tabloid items as of late, but more as a punching bag for Rick Ross than anything else. Rozay has been going after the label boss for most of the last week, airing him out for not paying Lil Wayne for work that he completed for Cash Money Records. "It just ran across my mind," said Ross in a Snapchat video. "I said, 'damn, I wonder if Birdman paid that man yet? [...] Man, that man sold a million his first week. God damn, what a n***a gotta do to get his money?" Birdman hasn't joined the social media drama as of this writing.
