    Toni Braxton is officially clear of all bankruptcy debt.

    According to TMZ, the “Braxton Family Values” star settled her Chapter 7 blues with a payment of $150,000. Now that the creditors are now off her back, the singer is fighting to regain property that was repossessed after her initial filing.

    Braxton made a deal with the trustee to buy back some of the personal property she lost. The deal was for Braxton to pay $5,000/month for 15 months with the last payment being $50,000. Braxton made all the payments … except for that last one.

    The other part of the case hanging over Braxton’s head was the issue of $754,000 Braxton made for overseas performances. The shows took place AFTER Braxton filed for bankruptcy, so she argued that she was legally entitled to keep the money earned from these performances.

    However, the trustee argued since Braxton was technically paid before the Chapter 7 filing (the money was put in escrow before the shows, she didn’t get it til after) she should have to fork it over.

    The trustee and Braxton finally came to an agreement this week — Braxton agreed to pay the $50,000 she owed for the property and $100,000 from the performances.
