London: Once a six-time Grammy winner, Toni Braxton’s career took a downward spiral while her weight shot up following her divorce with husband Keri Lewis.
The star resorted to watching sad movies and eating ice cream after her marriage broke down.
The singer parted ways with Lewis, her husband of eight years and father of her two children, last November (09).
Braxton admits her life took a down turn spiral after the break-up and she packed on the pounds as she comforted herself with sweet treats and Renee Zellweger`s movie Bridget Jones`s Diary.
"I turned to Bridget Jones and Rocky Road ice cream when my marriage ended. I’d watch the film, cry and sing All By Myself and eat a massive tub every day for two months. I gained 12 pounds. It was hard to wean myself off it," The Daily Express quoted her as saying.
