Toni Braxton's weight ballooned after she split from her husband - because she resorted to watching sad movies and eating ice cream after her marriage broke down.
The singer parted ways with Keri Lewis, her husband of eight years and father of her two children, last November (09).
Braxton admits she fell into a downward spiral of depression after the break-up and piled on the pounds as she comforted herself with sweet treats and Renee Zellweger's movie Bridget Jones's Diary.
She says, "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."
