Anita Baker's Mounting Debt

October 2010

A house painting company has filed a lawsuit against Anita Baker claiming the Grammy-winning R&B singer owes them more than $15,000.

Ray A. Smith Painting and Decorating claims in a Wayne County Circuit Court lawsuit that Baker has reneged on promises to pay for work at her home in Grosse Pointe, Mich. Work included painting in her son's bedroom, replacing a rotten door sill, and removing water-damaged plaster in her living room.

Neither Baker nor her attorney immediately returned calls by The Detroit News seeking comment.

Court records indicate Baker faces several financial problems including liens for $465,733 in unpaid federal taxes, $15,952 in unpaid state taxes and $3,470 owed to a window company.

Depends on the square footage of the house, that price seems inline for what the going rate was in my former neighborhood. She hired professional and possible union housepainters not jacklegs. lol The pros charge per square footage that doesn't include prep work such as repair, patch or scraping or the cost of materials.

I guess.

Girl needs to call me. I'd have hooked her up for half that price. (Half in advance given her reputation, though; other half upon completion. lurking )

The bitch still owes ME for buying her last CD and for a pan of brownies that I baked in honor of it coming out!

After those last two horrific renditions of the National Anthem, I'm afraid of ANYTHING she might put out NOW. eek

If she thought the price was too high, she never should have hired them in the first place. This is typical Anita Baker behavior. This broad out-diva's Diana Ross.

It could be worse, she could be Toni Braxton or Sinbad who are both in debt for nearly 50 million.

Man, Diana Ross hasn't even done HALF the shit Anita has done. evillol I would rather deal with Diana (who I now have utmost love for) then deal with Ms. Baker. lol
