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:

Toni Braxton's financial situation has just gone from bad…to worse!
On top of being bankrupt, now she's facing a lawsuit from the trustee of her bankruptcy estate. She's being accused of fraudulently transferring $53,490 to her estranged husband, Keri Lewis, so she could avoid paying back creditors.
Her rep, however, says the allegations aren't true and explained:

Toni Braxton and her husband of eight years, Keri Lewis, have been separated since last November and Toni says there was "no third party involved."
"My heart is still broken - who knew a song about heartbreak would literally be my life? There wasn't a third party involved - nothing like that. If there was, I'd have a whole different personality right now.
"Maybe it was the working together - the stress - that ended our marriage. But we are great friends still. I'm not happy about the marriage breaking up, but you gotta do what you gotta do - you know when things are dissolving."
They aren't divorcing right now though. She explains:
"(We) haven't talked about divorce yet. When you have a special-needs child, that changes things. We'll see what happens. I'm not eager for us to get back together again, but… I'm not eager to go any further than separation right now. I think for boys, it's important for a father to be around and Keri is very active in their lives."
Sounds like she's trying to do the best thing for her family.
Breaking up sucks!
