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.

TMZ reports:

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.

    Maybe there was some type of dispute as to why she didn’t pay. That being said…I cannot believe that they issued a warrant for her arrest for not appearing in court. This is ridiculous to say the least!!!!! If she had been anyone other than Anita Baker, the attorney for the Plaintiff would have asked for and most likely been granted a default judgment in favor of the Plaintiff. Next case.

    Why do these people think they are high and mighty can get away with not paying! It’s amazing that THESE kind of PEOPLE can walk out the door with this amount of debt not paid!
