Don Cheadle will be playing music legend Miles Davis in a new biopic entitled Miles Ahead. Which is fascinating when you consider back in 2006, Davis’ nephew Vince Wilburn said that Don Cheadle would be the only person that would be able to play the jazz icon on film. Fast forward some ten years later and here we are with a trailer for the film that proves how spot on Wilburn was with his choice.

Toni Braxton is finally speaking out and clarifying a couple things from the Unbreak My Heart biopic.  And you may be shocked to hear what she had to say about L.A. Reid.  Get it inside, plus she’s selling her Calabasas mansion for millions….

Now that we know the Unbreak My Heart biopic was a major hit for Lifetime, powerhouse singer Toni is speaking up about a few things she wants to clear up.  While we ALL thought L.A. Reid pulled the same “I’m going to gift you something using YOUR money” stunt he and wife Pebbles allegedly pulled with TLC, Toni said that’s not the case.

Here’s what she posted to her FB page this week:

Have you guys seen the numbers…Wow!

Thanks so much for believing in me! I wish I could thank you all individually, but who I do have to thank is Pebbles! As I mentioned in my Memoir, She’s done nothing in my career except support me. She was very influential in helping me develop my sense of style; without her, I would still be carrying my Dooney & Bourke bag and a Liz Claiborne triangle designer purse .

In addition, I have to thank L.A. Reid as well. The Porsche we bet on was a gift purchased with his own personal funds. I’ve been holding my breath all weekend long…but now, thanks to YOU all, I can finally Breathe Again!!!

Ha.  Chick is making SURE Pebbles and ’em don’t come with the legal papers.

In other news, Toni is selling her 5,323 square feet, 4 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms Calabasas mansion.  According to reports , she’s selling it for $3.495 million, close to half a million more than she paid for it back in 2014.

Toni hasn’t said why she’s selling the single-story French Country farmhouse McMansion, but if all the other times she sold her homes is any indication, she likely wants to free up some cash.
