Toni Braxton Loses Her Hit Songs in Bankruptcy Filing
Can somebody un-break Toni Braxton's heart? It looks like she may not have the funds to do it on her own.
The Braxton Family Values star, who was responsible for hits like "Breathe Again" and "He Wasn't Man Enough" in the '90s and early 2000s, has lost the right to call those slow jams her own, according to TMZ.
When the R&B songstress filed for bankruptcy for the second time, in 2010, many of her personal assets were up for grabs, including the rights to her songs.
Toni had struck a deal making it possible for her to buy back her hits, including "You're Makin' Me High," and "Always," among others, for the bargain-basement price of $20,000, but with the caveat that other bidders could jack up the price — and, of course, that's just what someone did.
Music lover/newly-minted Toni Braxton nemesis Ross M. Klein offered twice what Toni was willing to pay and made off with 27 of Toni's songs.
The one song that didn't seem to have made Ross' list was the unbelievably popular "Un-Break My Heart." It looks like Ross will leave Toni to pick up the pieces on her own.
