Toni Braxton’s bankruptcy issues are back in the news again and it sounds serious.

According to the trustee of Braxton’s bankruptcy estate, the singer fraudulently transferred $53,490 to her estranged husband in order to avoid paying back creditors in her bankruptcy case, reports TMZ.

According to new docs filed in Toni’s ongoing bankruptcy case, Toni’s estranged husband Keri Lewis received the 5-figure sum after Toni’s money was already earmarked to repay creditors.

Now, the bankruptcy trustee is suing Lewis to get the money back — much like John Mayer was sued for $465,000 following a giant Ponzi scheme collapse in Seattle.

As we reported, Toni filed for bankruptcy in 2010, claiming she owed between $10 million and $50 million in debts.

“All of the payments made to Lewis prior to Toni’s bankruptcy filing were appropriate transfers for reasonable and necessary personal and business expenses in the ordinary course of her business,” a rep for Braxton told TMZ.

The rep adds Toni will continue to provide the trustee whatever info is needed to address the allegation.

    I understand the first time filing since her contract with LaFace Records was basically a paupers contract. But what happened this time around? Maybe she lives above her means and doesn’t want to learn how to downsize. Also, can Tamar and Vince help her out? It’s obvious she has carried her sisters on her back ever since she signed her first record deal. Maybe it’s time for them to step up and help her.

  2. OK, she didn’t know they would find out about the $53K? For real? REALLY? Come on Toni, don’t tell me you fine AND stupid. You giving the good, smart black women a bad name!!! I guess stupid-ness doesn’t care about looks. You can be fine and stupid!!! Get it together Toni!!!
