Toni Braxton finalises divorce

Toni Braxton and her sisters go to Mr Chow for dinner in Beverly HillsToni Braxton’s divorce from Keri Lewis has been finalised after their split in 2009.

 

The ‘Un-Break My Heart’ hitmaker split from musician Keri Lewis, with whom she has two sons, after 12 years of marriage in 2009 and is now legally single.

 

A spokesperson for the Grammy-winner told People.com: “The couple has had an amicable split and will still both be actively involved in raising their two sons, 11-year-old Denim and 10-year-old Diezel.”

 

The 45-year-old star is now ready for a fresh start as she also recently settled all of her bankruptcy debts.

 

She filed for insolvency for the second time in 2010, claiming she had debts as high as $50 million, and finally resolved all of her financial issues after reaching a deal to pay her trustee $150,000 earlier this month.

 

According to legal documents, Toni, who first filed for bankruptcy in 1998, got into trouble again after she struck a deal with the trustee to buy back some of the personal property she lost by paying back $5,000 per month over 15 months but she failed to make the final lump sum payment of $50,000.

 

The trustee and the singer finally came to an agreement recently that will see her pay back that $50,000.

 

Toni also agreed to hand over $100,000 from the $754,000 she made from performances overseas.

 

A judge is expected to sign off on the settlement later this month.
