Her assets allegedly include the $275k home that she just bought in Georgia, $1,500 in household goods, $1,000 in clothing and $150 in her checking account. Her listed debts include $417,715 to a mortgage company, $76k to her former landlord, $982 to Comcast, over a thousand to collection attorneys, $8,480 to Covenant Christian Academy, $6,211.30 in medical bills, a $35,000 personal loan given to her by her sister Tamar and various other debts.

Braxton, who lists herself as self-employed at her T. Braxton Beauty Company, maintains that her monthly income of $4,692, monthly expenses total $6,020, and the absence of a savings account have now left her incapable of keeping up with her financial commitments.

As the case is still pending, her debt has yet to be wiped clean.

Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time her family has been hit with these sorts of financial woes. Her sister, R&B singer Toni Braxton made headlines when she filed for bankruptcy again in 1998 during the height of her career. Braxton again filed for bankruptcy most recently in 2010, and appears to have been plagued with money management issues since. In fact, the 51 year old kicked off 2019 with a tax lien filed against her by the IRS that states she owes a total of $340,252.99 in back taxes for 2017.
