Babyface: “There’s 3 Secrets To A Healthy Divorce…”
In 2005, after 13 years of marriage, music producer Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds and his second wife, Tracey announced that they were divorcing. The hit-maker had produced hits including “Whip Appeal” and co-wrote hits for Johnny Gill (“My, My, My,”), Whitney Houston (“I’m Your Baby Tonight”), and Madonna (“Take a Bow”), but his marriage began to fall off the charts. Tracey is currently dating former NFL superstar Deion Sanders. On “Oprah’s Next Chapter,” Babyface opened up about his friendship with his ex-wife and his feelings on her new relationship.
“You are famous for having one of the best divorces anybody’s ever heard, seen, known or read about,” Oprah tells Babyface in the above video.
Though Babyface admits that he didn’t think Tracey’s plans to marry Eddie Murphy was “the best thing,” he shares how her new beau quickly won over his respect.
