Toni Braxton

I Lost My Songs

Toni Braxton
may still have a song in her heart after filing for bankruptcy, but she just lost more than 2 dozen tunes that made her famous -- because some dude bought them right out from under her ... TMZ has learned.

TMZ broke the story ... Braxton struck a deal in her bankruptcy case, in which she settled with her various debtors.  Part of the deal -- Toni could buy back 27 songs from her music catalog for $20K -- with one BIG string attached ... she could be outbid.

Enter a guy named Ross M. Klein, who doubled Toni's price and nabbed the tunes.

Among the 27 are a few hits, including "You're Making Me High," "How Many Ways," and "Always."

Perhaps her biggest hit ... "Un-Break My Heart" is not among the 27 -- but probably only because Dianne Warren wrote it ... not Toni.

Sometimes, it's hard to carry a tune in bankruptcy.

Do the right thing, Mr. Klein.


Cut a deal with her - get her back into the studio.


She's Toni Braxton - has a LOT left.

Its your own fault. If you don't manage your money well and spent needlessly you're bound to get into deeper and deeper troubles. Losing your tunes rights is just a small price to pay.

Maybe if she lived within her means, this would not be a problem.
