Toni Braxton & Son Diezel Attend The AMAs

What a dapper dude! Toni Braxton rocked the red carpet with her 6-year-old son Diezel Ky at the 2009 American Music Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday (November 22).

Toni has openly discussed that Diezel has been diagnosed with autism.

He wasn’t developing like his brother was,” said Braxton about the little red flags when comparing Diezel to his 7 1/2-year-old brother Denim Cole. “I know you’re not supposed to compare, but things were drastically different.” Braxton went on to become a spokesperson for Autism Speaks. “I became determined to join Autism Speaks in its battle against this devastating disorder when autism became a part of my family’s reality.”

Just days before the AMAs, the Un-Break My Heart singer confirmed divorce rumors to talk show host Wendy Williams, saying she and husband Keri Lewis are calling it quits after eight years of marriage.
