Braxton Drops Lawsuit Against Former Manager

LATEST: Grammy Award winner TONI BRAXTON yesterday (30JAN07) withdrew her lawsuit against her former personal manager BARRY HANKERSON, after a Federal Court judge asked the singer to justify the basis of the suit. Braxton filed the papers in a US District Court in Manhattan on 12 January (07), accusing Hankerson of profitting from her switch from Arista Records to his own Blackground Records label in 2003. She claims Hankerson owes her at least $10 million (GBP5.2 million) from the label change. But the UNBREAK MY HEART singer decided to drop the lawsuit altogether when she was asked to clarify the reason for her case or face dismissal, reports MTV.

This is wrong. Toni Braxton did not drop her suit, she moved it to New York State court, with the same charges against Barry Hankerson.
