Toni Braxton, Trey Songz kiss broke up her marriage?

(AP)

(AP)

Did the infamous kiss between Toni Braxton and Atlantan Trey Songz break up her marriage?

We all know how celebrity rumor mills churn, especially when they’re trying to tear people down. But after reviewing said kiss a few times … well, we don’t like to judge. We’ll just let you decide for yourself.

Just to catch you up, the singers performed the song “Yesterday” during the opening of the 2009 Soul Train Awards, which were taped Nov. 3 in Atlanta (the show will air on BET at 9 p.m. on Nov. 29). With Braxton’s husband, Keri Lewis formerly of the band Mint Condition, sitting in the audience, the two singers topped the performance off with what looks like a pretty intimate kiss.

Since then, radio DJS, TV hosts and blogs including Essence.com, have speculated that Braxton, in her 40s, and hubby are now separated. Many wonder if it’s linked to the intimate tongue wrestling seen on stage with the 25-year-old.

Hmmm…

Would you divorce if you saw your hubby/wife lip-locked with someone else?

I don;t think so. She was on Frank and Wanda not too long ago promoting her new cd. The new single she said she wrote because she wasn’t feeling her husband at the time. He’s done something and she obviously has not gotten over it, or she has and is moving on.

Whether she was feeling her husband or not, what she did was disrespectful. I cannot imagine how it feels to be sitting in the audience amongst your peers and your spouse is intimately kissing someone else in front of thousands of people. That has to be humiliating at best. I’m sure their problems didn’t start on stage with that kiss. However, if he’s done something to disrespect her, then she should deal with that at home not at the Soul Train awards. Whatever message she was trying to send her hubby, I guarantee you he got it. I just hope their 2 little boys are OK.

I think their issues are from something else, as the first post said, she was on Frank and Wanda promoting her CD and when asked about the song she stated that she wrote it at a time when she had some ill feelings toward him and a few months ago that he was almost yesterday(which is the name of the song), she seemed to want to get into it, however Frank Ski cut her off. So, I would say that I don’t think the kiss has anything to with their problems, probably was her way of getting back at him for whatever it was that he did.

There is always more to the story than the public knows. However, if things were rocky before the show and he was in the audience this was not a good look. Performance my ass, I don’t think shes that much of a cougar and Kerry had to be insulted and embarassed when he saw it. Somethings should be left private and she invited the whole world in to humilate him it appears. This was not the kind of thing a mature, married woman with kids does on TV. It was just foul! All that would be left is to sign them papers.

No one said anything about Jamie Foxx and Haile Berry kissing. There is always two sides to a story and sometime people react out of hurt.
Before we judge let’s get the facts.

OBVIOUSLY SHE HAS NO CLASS OR SELF RESPECT. THERE IS A RIGHT AND A WRONG WAY TO DEAL WITH EVERYTHING. ONE MOMENT OF FOOLISHNESS CAN TURN INTO SEVERAL YEARS OF PAYMENTS!

It doesnt matter what problems they were going through. It’s downright disrespectful. Toni needs to sit down and act her age. People assume just because they are famous that they are exempt from going to hell….. God is not pleased at all. The bible speaks on marriage very heavly. It doesnt matter who done what to who, they are still Married!

AMHIll3 you have spoken nothing but the truth, sometimes we do things to get a person attention and it can happen, but attention gained is wrong. Hopefully none of this is true that her marriage is still in tact and this is just rumors.

Her husband need to sit down and get over himself. Perhaps, like the MaDonna/Britney/Christina kiss, it was all a part of the “show”. Why do people automatically always assume the worst?

She is an idiot because she made herself look bad first of all and then on top of that she put Trey Songz in a bad situation also. She better be glad her hubby is a singer and not a rapper or the awards show would have been shut down!!!! LOL

I am sure her marriage was on the rocks before she even kissed trey songz I am sure he had nothing too do with that, although he is fine I am sure their kiss was just for the wow factor

They are idiots!

When she was on Frank and Wanda, she implied they were going through a storm because he cheated. I don’t remember her exact words, but she was hinting around it (I know a woman scorned when I hear one) and Frank changed the subject because he said he was friends with her husband.

What ever the situation(s) going on, dealing with them should have been done in private. I thought it was tacky what she did in public. I always thought she was one classy woman. Heck she no different than the rest of these knuckleheads out here. I have much less respect for her now. She will learn these young guys dont stay around.

Kerri slept with one of Toni’s sisters a few years back. She had not spoken to that sister in years. I forgot which sister. It’s hard enough to forgive cheating but when it’s all in the family, it’s even harder. I knew it would be a matter of time.

It goes back to our teaching….Women cannot do just any old thing out here…Actually it does not matter if they were having problems, if the marriage was in trouble….There are certain things a lady simply do not do. Bottom line!!! She will NEVER redeem herself from this. She might not care today, however, stuff like this comes back to bite you in the rear….

Toni, did not make a wise choice but this too shall pass. Her problems at home should remain at home but I will say this, If it was my husband and he had sex with my sister, three would have been two fresh dug graves. I would not speak to that sister either. I also would have done an Leona on him and found a hungry dog to feed the little weenie to. I like Toni. She has her hands full with her sons and her career. I think she should have dealt with the problems at home and left his behind alone early.

Actually I saw the kiss and got a little turned on by the tongue hiding….Toni is very sexy, but I dont think it was a cause for divorce, now had she been in the Trey Songz soft porn production of I invented sex video, then yes, I would divorce her arse……LOL,……. ;-)

One more thing, I have been married 34 years but I think I would have kissed TreySonz with no tongue. He is rather lucious.

Greader,

Essence.com reported that Toni has announced that she and her husband are separating.

Tricia,

No one cares about Jamie and Halle because neither of them are married. Toni is a married woman.

Please...

Whoever thought Toni was classy forgot about the “dresses” she used to wear to the award shows. Gladys said it best — there is a difference between being sexy and stank.

Don’t know if it’s true about him sleeping with her sister but if it is, that’s low. Why cut off communication with your sister but keep the man? No wonder she did what she did. She probably hates her husband. A woman scorned….

Infamous? This is my first time hearing of such. Alas, I have since clicked on the Youboob link and have seen all the glory. I did not however notice there to be any such tongue action. But if there was, there is probably a good explanation. Likely what happened was in the midst of the smooch, someone’s Wrigley’s fell into the other’s mouth and got lodged into that person’s lower incisors.
