Baby Face Admits He Was Never In Love with Tracey Edmonds


In his Next Chapter interview with Oprah Winfrey R&B singer/ songwriter Kenneth 'Baby Face' Edmonds admits he and ex-wife Tracey were never really in love...

Baby Face tells Oprah,
"The reality is that there was a connection that wasn’t really there. We loved each other but we weren’t really in love with each other. It was more the idea of it falling apart and me holding onto the image of what I thought we were."
"I don’t feel like we were supposed to be together forever. I’m okay with it because I think she’s okay."

I turned this on my TV for a second and saw Oprah faking amazement at everything Babyface said and promptly kept changing the channel.

I love Babyface, but this is not surprising. Tracey auditioned for a video of his back in the 1990s and the rest is history. Not every marriage is built upon "love."

Its obvious That Tracey is a hustla & a goldigger. I had the urmost respect for her until her name came up in the middle of Deion Sander s divorce. Aby1 messing with Deion is not too bright. Its obvious to any1 who pays attention that the obly thing that Deion loves is his own reflection in the mirror.
Babyface probably bit her coochie up with those MONSTER TEETH!!

Dammit! I always forget that OWN has their best material on Sundays. Was this a good interview? They were together for a long time. Also, isn't Babyface dating a white woman now?

So you gave half to a woman you don't even love?? If you didn't love her, who did you love? Lemme find out this dude is gay 'cause that is some gay ish...so many DL men in entertainment (sigh)

So what's he saying really, he's gay? He only married her because of her looks? Its crazy how people will sale their soul too keep up an image. Why marry someone you aren't in love with.


Off topic: ya'll remember Comic View? They had this comedian named Chocolate, and she said that this man had a 'Babyface' with adult teeth, she went on to call him a "big teeth bastard", that bitch was funny I DIED laughing. I haven't seen her sense Comic View, she was a regular and a lot of their regulars went on to have big careers. I wonder what happened to her... of to google.

and neither is Deion.

As many times as she has been passed around the music industry can anyone really be in love with her?

And neither was Eddie. She's made quite a name for herself, I see...

I am a Black woman and I am so damn tired of us labeling every successful Black male as "'gay." Please shut the fuck up with that shit, damn. Babyface is in a relationship with another woman named Nicole and they have a daughter named Peyton Nicole. Just because his marriage to Tracey ended and he wasn't in love with her doesn't mean this man is gay. No wonder there's a shortage of good Black men. All you tricks do is sit up and declare them as either gay or prison bound. Try speaking some optimism about your fellow Black men into the universe, damn.

Never gave two fucks about any celebrities personal life, but I love to give my two cents at best. If you are a great song writer and singer, I will support you to the fullest. When the curtain closes and you want to bend over and take it up the ass that is your business!

Anonymous said...

Finally someone is being honest. Many fall in love with the looks but once you get to know that person you realize you have nothing in common, no connection. There is nothing there. Deion basically said the same thing about Pilar. You have to go deeper than looks to have a relationship

12:01, uh no, not really, if he bends it ova in the closet then wants to pretend to your daughter, sister, neice, or aunty that he loves her, would you still feel the same way? And if your sis, aunty, niece, walk out the clinic testing positive, would you still feel the same way? Dl behavior is evil, the consequences are too grave, its everybody's business.

I want to marry for love. Not money, not status, just friendship and love. Tracy is a low down, low quality woman gift wrapped in an expensive box. Dont judge a book soley by the cover.

I believe there are many married couples who love each other but don't feel or no longer feel romantic feelings for each other. I believe that has always been the case for many marriages.

Tracey met baby face and thought he was ugly, but married him for his status............It was Tracey who didn.t love baby face, as usual a jump off whore for money.

This lying ass nigga is still butt hurt after all these years, I remember interviews he did in the past going on and on about Tracy and how she showed up in sweats no makeup and how beautiful she was cause she looked just like him, *I gave his ass the side eye* cause I never thought this dude was good looking, in fact his ass looks slow like his mother had him during menopause, he got that old egg look but I digress, he then went on about one time how sick she was with the flu and just how beautiful she was, and wasn't whip appeal written about her? nigga still salty she did not love his ass and he found out and is still hurt. I wish I didn't have a memory like an elephant that's that damn Cancer we remember every damn minute detail. after all these years and money he got, he still ain't got them damn sharknado looking teeth fixed or them craters in his face he pile on a bunch of mac makeup over.

What's with EVERY celeb spilling their guts about EVERYTHING...dang! People suffer through loveless marriages everyday and that info stays between a bitter husband and his angry wife, within the confines of their ice cold bedroom. The fact that Tracey and Kenny were never in love doesn't matter now. It actually never mattered to the general public. Their marriage has been over and Tracey's been with HUNDREDS probably THOUSANDS of other men since her divorce, so why is Babyface yakking with Miss Sophia about it now?

That optimism from BW to BM should go both ways. Ever heard the despicable way a large majority of BM talk about BW? That's despite BW giving birth to them, holding them down, raising them when a disproportionate amount of BM duck out of their parenting responsibilities. Rant until your heart is content but until there is respect on BOTH sides, which means BM assuming a role where they attempt to do better, then maybe we will get somewhere.

2:44, So basically, you're going to continue to cycle and war of ignorance between Black men and Black women? You're immature and ignorant to even think like that and then write a comment like that. I've been around my Black men my entire life, and for the most part, they are chill, straight-forward people. It's Black women with the mouths, the attitudes, the dispositions, etc. In regards to Black men leaving their families, not all Black men do that, and it takes two for a pregnancy to occur. The woman is to blame as well.

This interview reeks with ignorance and disrespect. My question(s) to him are...
1. Why go on national TV and tell the world (and your kids) that you never loved their mother?
2. How come he didn't marry the woman he loved? Insecurity? Was she taken?
3. Why did he marry this woman?

Anonymous said...

@11:54 AM Thank you! I agree. I think most of these women say they're gay to cover up their own insecurities of not having a man or because they don't like the women these black men choose, either because they're white or light skinned. It boils down to them being jealous.

@3:40 PM Face never said he didn't love his ex-wife, he says that they were never IN love and according to the not IN love masses stuck in these types of situations, there's a difference. They're right too...there is a difference. When my ex sat in my face and told me that although he loved me, he wasn't IN LOVE with me, I wanted to bash his big, fat face in!!

4:22, The online demographics of this blog is nearly all Black. The fact that you have to resort to calling those who tell the truth about some Black women "trolls" is proof of your ignorance and immaturity. This is why your group of women are stunted and last on every totem pole: you don't accept constructive criticism. You think that whoever tells the truth about is either a "troll" or "bashing" you--or both. You think it's okay to be loud, twerking, wearing another woman's hair on your head, etc. Black women are their own worst enemy.

Unattractive men(of any color) always want a pretty dime piece on they arm. If they are rich they can get one. Once the fantasies wear off and he's no longer attracted to the outer shell because the inside person does not full fill his needs, he's off to find a younger version.
Same with women." I want a baby with good hair or pretty eyes." You have babies with men that can't hold a job, in & out of jail, have no credit, lie and cheat, but they have good d*#k, cute, maybe a hot body and that's about it.Then one day you turn around and see your life has flashed by. Your left with a house full of kids, no man, no education, a piece of a job or on welfare.
Look with in your self for for love and acceptance. You will not find it in some one else. If you are fat and don't like it go to the gym(change eating habits). If you want a better career go back to school. You have to make sacrifices to get a head. Good looks are going to disappear with age and you will be left with a wrinkled face and a empty soul. I had crushes on some ppl back in the day and I look at them now and say "What did I see in them". Allll-right

I love baby face but I do remember Tracey being some anon video girl that he put on..the vid has been remixed and remastered to make her look less thirsty than she kinda did..babyface took her from lead background dancer to respectable business woman by marrying down...truth is she should be grateful

If the truth were false, there would be no reason(s) to reply, period. Calling online strangers "trolls" will not improve the quality of your lives, your childrens' lives, etc. Also, co-signing your own comments just reiterates the desperate delusion that some of you live under. Non-Blacks don't need to patrol blogs to "oppress" and "demean" you; you have Black women who are professionals at showing their asses--figuratively and literally--in public. Thank Nene Leakes (RHOA), Rihanna (Pour It Up video), and all of the other "role models" that the media selectively places on television to further discredit and desecrate on your image. These women, their shows, and their music wouldn't be popular without some (key word) of YOUR support. You need to look in your mirrors and sort out your own reflections.

Umm, nah. If you're a Black woman and you honestly think that White people give that much of a fuck about you to patrol ghetto blogs for hours in attempts to "bash" you, you're more idiotic than first thought. News Flash: NO ONE GIVES A FUCK ABOUT YOU THAT TOUGH. MOST WHITE PEOPLE HAVE COUNTRY CLUBS, YACHTS, AND CAREERS TO TEND TO. I GUARANTEE THE ONLY TYPE OF WHITE PEOPLE CHECKING FOR BLACK WOMEN ARE TRAILER TRASH. WHITE PEOPLE OF ESTEEMED AND ARISTOCRATIC ELITISM DON'T WASTE THEIR TIME OR ENERGY ON WHAT NON-NAME, BLACK RWS FEMALES. That is hilarious at best. Perhaps the Black females are the real ones checking for White people on this blog? You can't have a discussion without Black women bringing up the word "troll." You all know a little too much about trolling to be able to decipher it through anonymous blog font. Check yourself, sistas.

@4:45 PM I understand your point, but it's very bias. Your comment can be interpreted as good looking men and women don't make very good spouses; therefore, people should date and make babies with 'ugly' men and women because, according to you, they're stable, will truly love you, etc etc. WRONG! Looks are deceiving. An ugly man can be just as trifling as a good looking man. IMO, the ugly men have the biggest damn egos.
