Toni Braxton is being sued by her fashion designer Anthony Franco for paying him "insufficient funds" for clothes he designed for her Vegas show.
Trouble has come approaching Toni Braxton all over again. The R&B singer is being slapped by a lawsuit filed by her fashion designer who accused her of bouncing a check.
Anthony Franco filed a lawsuit in the L.A. Superior Court Friday August 3rd against Braxton whom he claimed to have paid him "insufficient funds" for clothes he designed for her "Toni Revealed" show in Las Vegas which was kicked off August last year.
In his suit Anthony alleged he was hired by Liberty Entertainment, Inc. to design the entire wardrobe for Braxton's "Toni Revealed" show and they agreed to pay him $35,000 by check which was returned for "insufficient funds." He, moreover, claimed the defendants put a stop payment on the check and wrote a check with "insufficient funds" in return.
In the lawsuit, Franco claims he was eventually paid $20,000, but there is still a $15,000 balance.
Braxton's camp, meanwhile, has yet comment on the suit.
