Cash Money Records head Birdman made sure to plead the fifth when asked about a buzzing romance rumor involving himself and R&B diva Toni Braxton.

Instead of dishing out details, Birdman avoided the hook-up question in a new interview.

With all the time you spend managing your businesses do you have time for a special lady? We’ve heard about certain pictures [Toni Braxton and Birdman were spotted together according to TMZ]!

Ah none of that is important to me, this is important, my children, my family. Ain’t nothing else more important to me than doing this for my children and my family. (RESPECT)

Steamy romance rumors involving Baby and Braxton heated up the Internet a few days ago.

The cat started crawling out of the bag when Birdman showed up Sunday for Toni’s Grammy Park performance in Brooklyn. We’re told backstage was sealed off so very few people could see them together, but this pic of the rendezvous got out. Sources tell TMZ … Birdman left with his entourage to go clubbing. It’s unclear if he and Toni had a “run-in” later, but we’re told they’ve been close for years … and have hooked up in the past. (TMZ)
