The Truth About Toni Braxton's Bankruptcy


The world wide web is buzzing over Toni Braxton's second bankruptcy. Rumors swirling around about her spending habits being the cause to yet another bankruptcy. However a reliable source close to the family says Braxton's Chapter 7 filing had nothing to do with her spending habits and everything to do with her Vegas deal gone wrong. And I believe it!

The relative tells TMZ that Toni took out "show insurance" through Lloyd's of London for her act at the Flamingo Las Vegas Hotel & Casino back in 2006.

And when Toni's
heart condition started to act up -- in the middle of the show's run -- she had to pull the plug, but she was still on the hook to the hotel for big bucks. Toni expected Lloyd's to cover the loss but Lloyd's didn't, arguing Toni had an undisclosed, preexisting medical condition, rendering the policy void.

In the end, Toni had to absorb a huge loss, which the relative claims sent her on a downward
financial spiral.

The R&B singer's lawyer, Debra Grassgreen, revealed Braxton is millions of dollars in debt.

"After months of trying to work out an acceptable arrangement with her principal creditors, she determined that the only way to assure that she could meet her tax obligations and provide for her two small children was to commence these bankruptcy cases," said Grassgreen in a statement Thursday.

Grassgreen says the 43-year-old singer was forced to cancel a series of Las Vegas shows in 2008 because of a heart condition. Doctors told her she was suffering from a type of angina.

The performer turned around and sued Lloyd's of London, which had insured her for the Las Vegas performances in case of cancellation. The insurer denied her claim, stating she had a pre-existing condition. The case was dismissed on Sept. 20.

Braxton will be selling some of her assets to pay off creditors and tax debts. Court documents show she owes somewhere between $10 million US and $50 million US.

The singer, who had big hits with Un-break My Heart, You're Makin' Me High and Breathe Again, previously filed for bankruptcy in 1998.

In 2008, she performed on Dancing With the Stars and in May of 2010 released her latest album Pulse via Atlantic Records. The singer is currently filming a reality show tentatively titled Braxton Family Values set to air on WE Network.

Toni Braxton Finds Her 'Pulse'


Record sales in excess of 40 million, a trophy shelf groaning under the weight of six Grammys, international smashes with the likes of 'Breathe Again', 'He Wasn't Man Enough' and of course 'Un-Break My Heart', then... nothing. But now she's back! Last week Toni Braxton touched down in London for an exclusive playback of her new album - it's called Pulse and it's her first in almost five years - so we just had to grab the opportunity for a catch-up. The singer spoke about possibly collaborating with Alicia Keys and touring with Leona Lewis.

It's been five years since your last album - are you happy to call this a comeback?
"I'm fine with 'comeback' - whatever it needs to be called! It all happened very fast for me first time around, so I never really got to enjoy it, whereas now I'm really taking my time and smelling it and living it all fully."

How long have you been working on the album?
"It's like a bottomless cup of coffee! I signed my deal with Atlantic Records when I didDancing With The Stars in September 2008 and I've been working on it since then. I must have recorded more than 30 tracks for it by now!"

Have you decided on the final tracklisting?
"We're doing that as we speak - I think we have about seven songs confirmed, but we haven't got the ten yet. The album was supposed to come out in February, but we held it back because seven of the ten songs we picked were leaked. We decided to go back to the studio, record four or five more songs and then pick. Now we send everything via Federal Express - nothing's going through the internet - and that's why none of the new songs have leaked so far."

What's the balance between ballads and club cuts like?
"It can be challenging getting that balance right, but I think we did a really good job on [my 1996 album] Secrets. Everyone forgets that 'You're Makin' Me High' was on the same album as 'Un-Break My Heart'. You have to make sure it sequences well, because you don't want to have a dance song and then all of a sudden a big, classic ballad."

The first UK single is a track called 'Yesterday'. What's the story behind it?
"Well, I heard the song and it was written from a guy's perspective, so I said, 'Nice song - let me rework it'. I changed it up and made it a girl's song. I'm going through a separation, and it's not my story per se, but I definitely can relate to it in the sense of starting over. I wanted to have strength when I sang it - I didn't want to be a wimp!"

It feels like time for you to record a big female-female duet. Is there anything being lined up?
"Me and Alicia Keys are talking about it - well, my people are talking to Alicia's people because I play piano and obviously she plays too. I've been playing since I was about nine years old so I really can play. Maybe we could do something at an award show and people will see us collaborate that way? We'll see."

How about our own diva, Leona Lewis?
"I love her! I prefer her first album to the new one though. Actually, the possibility of she and I touring together was mentioned when I was in New York a couple of months ago for the VH1 Divas show. Her people were talking to my people and said maybe we should put on a tour together, so who knows? I'm just excited to have these options and possibilities open to me."

Finally, do you still enjoy singing 'Un-Break My Heart'?
"I actually do - though I don't really have to sing it at concerts now because the fans sing it! I just sing 'Don't leave me in all this pain' and it's over! The audience jumps in and pretty much sings the whole song. They do wait for the last note though, so I try to really nail that one!"
