Babyface doesn’t come across as scary. The R&B singer/songwriter was once married to Tracey Edmonds for 13 years, which ended in a shocking divorce. It’s been almost 8 years since the divorce, and Tracey is now dating former NFL baller, Deion Sanders. According to Huffington Post, Deion though that Babyface was scary enough that he reached out to him so the two could have a man-to-man conversation about Deion’s dating Tracey and meeting Babyface’s kids.
In an interview with Oprah Winfrey, Babyface said it was that move that convinced him that Deion was the right guy for his ex-wife and their kids.
“I knew that Deion, Mr. Prime Time, seems like a nice guy. But he became a classy guy when he called me and said he didn’t want to meet my children until he sat down and had lunch or breakfast with me, so he knew me before he met my children.”
“I reached my hand out because Tracey’s family, so I want to make sure that she’s good. And I know she wants to make sure that I’m good.”
I have to commend Deion for this because he doesn’t come across as a guy who drowns in humility, and it takes a lot of humility to do what he did
