Talk about single and ready to mingle!
Just a month after her sister Trina went through the same process, Toni Braxton announced that her divorce was OFFICIALLY final!!!
The spectacular 45-year-old songstress married Keri Lewis in 1998 and had two lovely sons and many years of happiness, but Toni and Keri have been separated for several years.
In a statement, the Grammy-winner's rep said:
It feels like Toni Braxton has been in bankruptcy forever, no?!
The singer filed for Chapter 7 back in 2010 for the second time in her career!
This time around, it allegedly took $150,000 for a fresh start!
According to docs filed in the bankruptcy, Toni made a deal with a trustee to buy back some personal property she had to say bye-bye to!
TB was to pay $5,000 a month for 15 months to the trustee, and $50,000 for the final payment. She wrote all checks, except for the final sum!
The smoking gun of the missing check
Girlfriend ain't even close to retiring!
We were in a puddle of tears after hearing Toni Braxton reveal she just wasn't feeling the music thing anymore, but now there's a whole lotta rejoicing going on.
After getting a taste of a possible return to music at the Lupus LA Orange Ball, we're happy to say the return is on because Toni is not only going on a summer tour, but she's also putting out new music with Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds!
She's apparently hard at work on some new music that they'll release in the fall with Motown Records. And we've gotta admit, we expect something HOT!
And who knows, she might just debut some of it during her summer tour that has us beyond pumped. Dates have just been released, and you've gotta check them out because you know tickets will go fast!
See if they're coming to your city …AFTER THE JUMP!!!
Unfaithful hubby be gone!
Toni Braxton's sis Trina Braxton has finally divorced her philandering husband of about 10 years, Gabriel Adrian-Solis.
The Braxton Family Values star explained that her marriage was "irretrievably broken" in divorce documents filed in a Georgia court.
And if Gabriel's serial wandering member wasn't enough for Trina to kick him to the curb, Trina's reality TV show also documented
Well this is certainly a surprise!
Attendees at the Lupus LA Orange Ball got a
little HUGE treat as Toni Braxton took the stage to put on a very special performance!
The Unbreak My Heart singer took a short break from her retirement and sang a couple of her songs at the star-studded charity event, and of course she sounded amazing!
Ch-ch-check her awesome performance of Breathe Again (above)!
Toni had a lupus scare herself not too long ago, so it makes sense that she would want to give back to an organization that is hoping to thwart the disease once and for all!
She even showed some love for her doctor, Dr. Shapira, and pulled him onstage for her performance of Another Sad Love Song! Because nothing says "Thank you" like embarassing someone in front of a crowded room of people! LOLz!
But seriously, we are SO SO happy to see Toni back on the stage doing what she does best! Even if it was just for the night!
Check out the rest of her performance …AFTER THE JUMP!!
Tamar Braxton may be all about the Family Values, but when it comes to her baby, she has had it up to here!
(We're holding our hands up to our bellies. It's more of a visual gag.)
The Tamar & Vince star says her sisters Trina, Towanda, Traci, and Toni Braxton are all up in her baby business! She says:
Let's just start the Lil' Kim Needs A New Stylist Fund right now.
Sure, people are talking about Kim's new, um, face, but what we're really concerned about here is this fashion disaster!
Kim arrived to the season 3 premiere of the Braxton Family Values on Wednesday night wearing a tight black dress featuring shoulder cut-outs and leather arm gloves with zippers, distressed leather thigh-high boots, a white fur shawl, and more makeup than a MAC store.
Nothing about this look screams out chic, in fact, it just makes us wanna scream!
Kim, Kim, Kim… we love ya girl, but it's time to fire your stylist!
