Toni Braxton’s Son Diezel Heading to Howard U.

When Howard University’s latest freshman class hits campus this fall, R&B legend Toni Braxton’s 19-year-old son Diezel will be among them.

Diezel, who was diagnosed with autism as a very young child, is entering the prestigious HBCU as part of the Class of 2025, Essense reported.

“It’s been rewarding to see how he’s grown, but I remember when I first found out. I remember blaming myself; I thought it was my fault,” Braxton said in 2011, Essence reported. “I wish I knew what triggered it. Still, often, as a mom, I blame myself. I didn’t take my vitamins every day … maybe it was the medications I was on before I got pregnant.”

A few years later, she believed that he had been cured of the condition and said in 2016 that he was no longer showing symptoms of it and that “I am one of the lucky parents. Early diagnosis changes everything,” Essense reported.
