*With all the drama in the world, a new reality television show, and tragedy and struggle hitting her from every angle, Toni Braxton is not ready to let go of her estranged husband. In fact, she refuses to divorce him.

Keri Lewis and the singer have two young sons together. She told sister2sister magazine it would be rather difficult to break the news to the boys if they did go through with divorce.

The pair actually split in late 2009, but remained close for Denim (9) and Diezel (8).

“We co-parent together. Sometimes he stays over with the kids; he’s very involved with his kids …  April would have been 10 years (since we wed). We’re, like, the best of friends.”

“We told the kids, ‘Sometimes mommy and daddy need a little break.’ That’s probably why I haven’t done a straight divorce yet.”

Or … maybe she still loves the man, but that is neither here nor there.
