Toni Braxton put some respek on Birdman's name by hanging with the Cash Money CEO -- and it's not for the first time ...which makes it more surprising they've kept this under wraps.
In 2010 Braxton was diagnosed with systemic lupus erythematosus; a highly life-threatening disease.The cat started crawling out of the bag when Birdman showed up Sunday for Toni's Grammy Park performance in Brooklyn. It's unclear if he and Toni had a "run-in" later, but we're told they've been close for years ... Our sources say they're trying to keep it on the DL, and up until now they have. We're told backstage was sealed off so very few people could see them together, but this pic of the rendezvous got out. Toni Braxton was born to her father Michael Cornard Braxton Sr., a clergyman at the Methodist center who also worked with a power company.Her mother is Evelyn Jackson, an opera singer and a cosmetologist who was also a pastor.
