Toni Braxton is dismissing rumors that the breakdown of her marriage was caused by an affair.
MSN’s Wonder Wall reports that her marriage fell apart from the inside, despite what the streets are saying.
"My heart is still broken,” Toni said. “There wasn’t a third party involved – nothing like that. If there was, I’d have a whole different personality right now.”
Toni announced in November that she and her husband, Keri Lewis, were breaking up after eight years of marriage. The “Unbreak My Heart” singer puts it all down to stress.
“Maybe it was the working together–the stress–that ended our marriage,” she said. “But we are great friends still. I’m not happy about the marriage breaking up, but you gotta do what you gotta do – you know when things are dissolving."
While Toni and Keri haven’t proceeded with a divorce, it’s no because she thinks they can work things out. They’re staying together (sort of) for the kids.
"(We) haven’t talked about divorce yet. When you have a special-needs child, that changes things,” she said. “We’ll see what happens. I’m not eager for us to get back together again, but… I’m not eager to go any further than separation right now. I think for boys, it’s important for a father to be around and Keri is very active in their lives."
