Toni Braxton Bouncing Checks


According to a TMZ exclusive, Toni B is writing rubber checks in Vegas...
Her costume designer Anthony Franco says Toni wrote him a $35,000.00 check that bounced higher than Flavor Flav on a Saturday night. Then he says she put a stop payment on the check, before finally coughing up $20,000.00. Homeboy is suing for the other 15.

1St yo! I love this honey. She needs financial counseling though.

Wow, I guess history repeats itself. Somebody needs to teach her how to handle her money

She's really dumb for being in this situation. Again.

Really, really dumb.

When you are a famous singer or rapper, you better get a financial advisor because you have to save and invest your money. You think that you are hot today but tomorrow you will probably be broke. Toni was hot back in the day but know there is Beyonce. Beyonce will have to go through the same thing some day. Someone younger, prettier and more talented taking over her limelight. Celebrities just spend their money without thinking twice. Where is S.W.V., Brownstone, J.J. Fad and all of the others from back in the day? They are history.

Vegas isn't breaking her off? But then again...

I love Toni. Lawwwwd knows I do. I love her, but I saw her at Essence one year and fell asleep on her.

I wish Toni the best though. Damn.

Toni, Toni, Toni...this isn't cute Sweetie; stop letting Hubby run things he's got no business running and hire an accountant; it's an easy tax write-off and you avoid looking like a dizzy *****. Work it out Girl!!!

who told you Vegas pays well? thats like the last stop for some bigger artist and a pit stop for others...she is not fresh so thats a last stop for her and my cousin is a comedian who has played vegas as a pit stop on the way to LA so i know how they usually pay for lower bill and top bill acts. and she's not filling seats in MSG...she is filling 250 seats in a hotel!!

point blank she is beat for work to take that like i said before so this is believable...to me anyway.

You all have valid points, but this is the comment that raised my eyebrow:

...what does her husband do?

I just see him standing around her looking lanky and sleepy.

Sometimes I see him in mags connected with Mint Condition.
(I wouldn't have known who was if they didn't mention it.)

When was the last time they made a CD?

bEYONCE STAN IN THE HOUSE. I love Beyonce too,but Beyonce could find herself in this type of position.

Everyone, Vegas pays big money. Big name celebrities who work there make a few million a year.

Anonymous said...

A few million ain't a big amount to a star. That doesn't even cover their expenses and entourage. Now I'd be set with that kinda money but I ain't a star and I have to ASK people to go places with me. LOL

People fail to believe just because you put out a record, that your mega rich. No no no thats not true. LeftEye broke it down by the fuckin sale pennies that you get only hundreds of thousands just from three people being in a group. Now imagine one person split between the costumes, housing, and tour tickets. Yeah not alot is it? I hope she gets it together and remain in Gods favor.

Theres no favor like Gods favor!

MC's last CD dropped in 2005, their new one is set to drop this fall. They still perform live and were even part of the Essence Music Festival. They have their own label and are doing quite well...as for Keri, seems like he just keeps the kids, I haven't heard of him doing any other projects outside of Toni's, while Mint collaborated with Maurice White this year, just some food for thought. All that glitters....

I was told that her husband is her musical director, for her show in vegas, and I heard they have a production company as well. Toni has always had financial problems, when they did that reality show on VH1 on her having the baby and stuff. She always seem to live above her means as if she is a R&B Diva, like Diana Ross, and Whitney Houston.

This would not surprise me that she has not invested her money wisely, a lot of stars simply don't. But then again, she got duped like TLC and others on the LaFace record company and she was bankrupt when she was on LaFace records, and then her contract was brought by Aaliyah's uncle at Background records, and her album flopped with them, and she had finanical problems with that situation too.

What a hot mess Toni is.....Sad about their son who has Autism though...--QBEve

financial mismanagement.......... we've all been guilty at one time or another or still are, I know I'm trying to pull it together 'specially with a student loan gnawing at my ass like mosquitoes! good luck Toni!

Tony hasn't done anything for a min. I am sure her extravagant life style has caught up with her.
