56 year old Grammy winning singer Anita Baker is a wanted woman in Detroit. And she found out while watching television after seeing a report about authorities looking for her.
According to court records, the bench warrant was issued yesterday after the singer failed to show up to court for a hearing in her current legal battle with a paint and decorating company.
Ray Smith Painting and Decorating has sued Baker, claiming she owes the company $15,000 for services it performed inside her giant Grosse Pointe home — and so far, she still hasn’t anted up.
She shared her surprise to her 290,000 Twitter followers:
“WHATTT??!!… sittin’ in the kitchen watching this on TV. BIG time crazy. Atty on his way to TV Station. Devil sho is busy.”
Baker rose to fame in 1986 with the release of her platinum-selling second album Rapture. The album included her Grammy-winning single Sweet Love. She has won eight Grammy’s, has five platinum albums and one gold album.
