Toni is a complusive spender, she enjoys spending money, buying things on top of things, she spends more than she makes, which leads me to believe if she does have a accountant, she totally over rules him and assumes she will book another gig and all her problems will be "ok". If I was her husband, I would bounce, slow your spending or I'm letting my azz out the front door. She is going to go to her grave with two nickels in her pockets.

So many judgmental folks here. You morons have no idea what is going on in her life. What she does realy has nothing to do with any of you. It is only news since it is on TMZ. Why does not TMZ do a story on the coverup of the murder of Pat Tillman. Or how the past President and his entourage lied about wmd's and what is going on with the care in the VA hospitals of the wounded soldiers.

Throw her in jail for being stupid. If you have to go bankrupt more than once you deserve to be locked up.

I've loved Toni since... forever but she REALLY need's to take a step back and look at her spending. The fact of the matter is that a lot of people do, going to jail as some of you say, won't fix a damn thing. It's not as if she's breaking the law.

Pay up, bitch! How is it that these millionaires spend why more than they have, then file bankruptcy so they don't have to pay their debt?!?! It's total BS!!! Everybody else would be get totally wiped-out if they filed bankruptcy. Then, after all these selfish, greedy millionaires get their debt cleared away in bankruptcy, these banks and businesses raise their fees on regular working people!!!! FU, Toni Braxton and every selfish rich person just like you!!!!

I'd be really interested to see how she's invested, if at all. This "bling bling" culture these days is pretty poisonous, and young people BETTER figure that out. There will be PLENTY of rappers who will eventually follow Toni into bankruptcy.

Who said celebrities do not get preferential treatment? If I owe even only $10 to AT & T, my phone will be cut off in no time, etc. etc.
