Toni Braxton married Mint Condition’s then-keyboardist, Keri Lewis, in 2001 but they separated in 2009. Just when fans thought there was hope for reconciliation, they continued on with their divorce and it was finalized in 2013. Now that they’ve moved on with their lives, new details about some of the behind-the-scenes drama has surfaced
Mint Condition’s lead singer, Stokley Williams, dropped the tea to Vlad TV about why group members were pissed when Keri married Toni. He says they were so heated that Lewis QUIT the band to settle down with Braxton that all of them (except Stokley) refused to attend the wedding.
Group members felt betrayed by Keri’s sudden departure, which also briefly affected the sound of Mint Condition’s signature live performance. Fans apparently didn’t adapt as quickly to that change and it reflected in record sales at that time.
Stokley ended up attending the wedding because he still wanted to support Kerri. However, now that Keri and Toni are divorced, do you wonder if Keri regrets walking away from the band for his ex?
Meanwhile, Braxton dropped by “Good Morning America” last month to promote her film, “Faith Under Fire,” and she squashed reports that she and her current love, Birdman, are getting married. The rumors reportedly stemmed from comments Toni’s little sister, Tamar Braxton, started.
“Well, you know, I am not married, unlike my big mouth sister Tamar has been saying everywhere. I’m definitely not married.”
