The couple met when Tracey auditioned for a role in his music video "Whip Appeal." After dating for a short while, they wed in 1992. The couple had two sons together, Brandon and Dylan.

But the two divorced back in 2005 and Tracey moved on to be in relationships with Eddie Murphy and Deion Sanders.

Legendary singer never loved his wife of 13 years!

However, what shocked everyone was the revelation Babyface made regarding their relationship and explained that they were never in love with one another.

Babyface said,

“The reality is that there was a connection that wasn’t really there.”

He then added,

“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.”

He said he was with Tracey because he loved her as a person. That must have been miserable for them to stay together for 13 years without being in love with each other.

Their relationship today

Today the couple are in a friendly relationship and seem to forget about their failed marriage.

“Tracy’s a good girl. She’s the mother of my children and we have a great relationship and we live to make sure our children are happy."

Interestingly enough, Babyface lihes Tracey's boyfriend Deion Sanders

"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.”

Babyface himself also had found a new lady to get married too, and she was none other than Nicole Patenburg. Both of them tied the knot back in 2014 after they began dating in 2007 and parented the then 5-year-old daughter Peyton Nicole.

At the end of the day, it's great the two had eventually found their happiness...even though they are going separate ways now. Happiness is something we all want, and it's quite unfair to waste someone's time if you don't feel crazy in love!
