Hot couple alert! The gossip mill is on fire with reports that Birdman and R&B singer Toni Braxton are an item.

According to TMZ, the couple have been secretly dating for awhile now. But a photo of the two hugged up backstage at Braxton’s concert in Brooklyn, N.Y., revealed that something is going on between them.

Insiders have told TMZ that Birdman left the venue to go clubbing but it’s unclear if the Cash Money CEO and the veteran songbird had another rendezvous planned later that night. However, this isn’t the first time the pair has hooked up. According to sources, Birdman and Toni have linked up on numerous occasions.

It shouldn't be a surprise that Toni has mutual respect for Birdman. During her career, the 48-year-old R&B mom has teamed up -- professionally -- with Birdman on his 2002 song, "Baby You Can Do It." She also had the Big Tymers spit rhymes on "Give It Back" from her 2002 album, More Than a Woman.

However, Birdman hasn't been so lucky with dating R&B singers. In 2014, Keyshia Cole and Birdman were reportedly dating and things got a little hectic.

Cole paid a visit to Baby's home at 5AM in the morning and reportedly found another woman in the rap mogul's bed. Cole allegedly assaulted Sabrina Mercedes, an employee of Cash Money Records, and the police was called to the residence.

Cole would later be charged with battery, but escaped jail time after prosecutors gave her and the alleged victim a stern warning to stay away from each other.

Hopefully, we won't see no drama between Birdman and Toni Braxton.
