I think I said a few years ago how I understood how Toni Braxton had to file for bankruptcy but I'm not sure why she could not make a lot of money very quickly
. If you were or are a recording artist who had any measure of success you can always make many thousands of dollars every night that you are willing to be on tour whether or not you ever sell another record again. You have no debts to pay back to any record companies and can just play for cash. A lot of cash and sell a lot of merchandise. So, it baffles me when there are reports that Toni Braxton tried to hide $53,000 from the creditors in her bankruptcy case by giving it to her estranged husband. Why? It is such a tiny amount. Yes, to you and to me it is large, but to Toni it is a night or two of playing shows. I just don't see the point in facing jail time with the federal government for $53,000 when you can go play a show in Vegas and get that much money. Toni says it is all a big misunderstanding and that she did nothing wrong. We shall see.
