Toni Braxton

Sued Over $57,000

TV Poster SNAFU

EXCLUSIVE

Toni Braxton
is responsible for over $57,000 in STOLEN ADVERTISING for her TV show "Braxton Family Values" -- so says a new lawsuit ... and now, the singer's being sued BIG TIME.

A company called National Promotions & Advertising filed the lawsuit in L.A. County Superior Court, claiming it entered into an agreement  last year with the producers of Braxton's WEtv reality show -- including Braxton herself -- to promote the show's 2nd Season.

According to the lawsuit, NPA agreed to post 4,300 "BFV" posters around the country in exchange for a fat paycheck -- $57,322.29.

NPA claims it completed its end of the bargain in November -- days before the premiere of the show's second season -- but Braxton and her producing partners didn't pony up.

NPA says it's been trying to get paid ever since ... in vain ... and now, it's suing for its money ... plus damages.

A rep for Toni tells us the singer is not involved in marketing budgets or payables for the series, and says such decisions are handled by WEtv.

She filed bankruptcy more than once. You knew she didn't have money, but did the work before getting paid. Rookie mistake.

Toni is probably right about this one. My company had dealings with WE TV and they screwed us over as well. They offered to give full credits on the show as well as name the companies that supplied free merchandise...none of which they did. I haven't watched anything on that network since.

Braxton has declared bankruptcy twice. She has excuses each time.

TMZ broke the story: "A rep for Toni tells us the singer is not involved in marketing budgets or payables for the series, and says such decisions are handled by WEtv".

We the People as taxpayers have absorbed her poor decisions and few of us have the financial stability she enjoys. Enough already! Singers are a dime a dozen in our culture. I don't want to pay for her lifestyle any longer.

Toni Braxton & The Braxton sisters are still hot and have a lot of loyal fans. People like to scandalize Toni's name and it's really mean spirited.
From what I hear, Wetv is shady! I can say this: make sure your antivirus scanner is up-to-date and running before you visit their website. Wetv.com is shady!

What does Toni Braxton know? She comes off as a dumb ass about everything. She still has a beautiful voice though.
