Anita Baker can relax.

She’s no longer wanted in Detroit after a judge in Michigan withdrew a warrant for her arrest over an outstanding home decorating bill.

The veteran singer hit headlines on March 19 when a lawyer for Ray A. Smith Painting & Decorating, who had worked on her Gross Pointe home, accused her of failing to show for a court hearing relating to allegations of an outstanding payment of $15,000.

Baker took to Twitter Thursday and said, “Whattt??!! … sittin’ in the kitchen watching this on TV. Big time crazy. Atty on his way to Tv Station. Devil sho is busy.”

The 56-year-old said she had no idea legal action had been taken against her. Her lawyer on Monday was able to get the warrant dismissed.

Wayne County Circuit Judge Edward Ewell ruled that the lawsuit would still be allowed to continue and set a new hearing for April.

The plaintiffs filed papers against the star in 2011.
