It was just last year that Diezel signed with Wilhelmina Models, which is the world’s leading modeling agency. “Congrats Diezy @diezel.braxton on signing to Wilhelmina Modeling Agency,” Toni shared online. Diezel also shared his accomplishment with his Instagram fans. “It’s time to get to work. You ready @wilhelminamodels,” the young star asked.
Diezel was diagnosed with autism at a young age. The teen’s mom told ESSENCE in 2016 that her son no longer exhibited the signs associated with the disorder.
“My youngest son, as everyone knows, my son Diezel suffers from – or I should say suffered from autism,” Toni revealed. “He [has] no signs of autism,” the star mom reiterated. Toni considered herself as “one of the lucky parents” as autism is deemed a lifelong condition by many medical experts.
