Toni Braxton Accused Of Wiring Money To Ex-Husband During Bankruptcy

Unbreak her . . . bank account?TMZ reports that Toni Braxton is in big trouble after fraudulently wiring her estranged husband more than $50,000.
Musician Keri Lewis -- who separated from his wife of a decade in 2009 -- supposedly received the money just before Braxton's 2010 bankruptcy filing. The bankruptcy trustees are currently suing Lewis in order to recover the $53,490 sum, which they posit the singer transferred in order to avoid having to use it to pay back her creditors.
Two years ago, Braxton was allegedly somewhere between $10 million and $50 million in debt, prompting her to file bankruptcy.
A rep for the "Unbreak My Heart" crooner, 45, denies any wrongdoing on her part.
"All of the payments made to Lewis prior to Toni's bankruptcy filing were appropriate transfers for reasonable and necessary personal and business expenses in the ordinary course of her business," her rep told TMZ, adding that Braxton is happy to provide whatever information…

Monica Speaks On Brandy Feud

Twitter is a gift for many music stars, giving them a chance to easily connect with fans in real time.  But there's a downside, too, with Monica addressing in a tweet on Wednesday.  In her message, she writes that she's "disappointed" with users accusing her of disliking Brandy.

"Just logging on & I'm so disappointed with the foolery. It's a KNOWN fact that I support @4everBrandy & I'm beyond happy that she is making... [t]he amazing music God put her here to make," Monica writes.

The two have acknowledged falling out back in 1998, around the time their hit "The Boy Is Mine" was released.  But since then, the singers have grown up, and mended fences, even reuniting earlier this year for their song "It All Belongs to Me."

Still, some people are convinced that Monica still holds a grudge against Bran, and vice versa.  But that's simply not true writes Monica, who tweeted, "@4everBrandy deserves 2shine…

Rihanna went through two album titles(7 and 7 World Wonder) until finally resting with the aptly titled Unapologetic. The album title couldn't be more appropriate for Rihanna especially since her life has been under public scrutiny as of late.

Oh and Unapologetic hits stores on November 19. The lead single Diamonds has shot to #1 on the R&B/Hip Hop charts which has caused a bit of an uproar with some. 

A lot of people don't consider Rihanna R&B but now Billboard has implemented a rule with digital sales which makes songs like Diamonds shoot to the top of the R&B/Hip Hop charts.

Kelly Rowland can currently be heard on singles with Sean Paul(How Deep Is Your Love), Big Boi(Mama Told Me), and Ludacris(Representin).

Monica Goes To Work On New Album

Monica has announced that she is working on a new album. For the new project Monica is recruiting Missy Elliott, Jim Jonsin, Polow Da Don, and Stargate just to name a few. 

Back in April Monica released her album New Life to little fanfare and not much support. The album spawned the #30 peaking R&B single It All Belongs To Me featuring Brandy. 

I'm glad that Monica is working on a new album and seems enthusiastic about the new material. I just hope the music is as good as it can be because personally the last few Monica albums while good have been personal letdowns in my opinion.

Music Feed: Mariah Carey's Most Famous Feuds

I feel like I've visited this topic before regarding Mariah Carey and her feuds and I feel like that because I've been doing this blog for over six years; believe it or not!

Anyway on to Mariah Carey and her Most Famous Feuds...

We are all still shocked by the video of Nicki Minaj spazzing out on Mariah Carey. While Nicki Minaj may be receiving a bit of heat for the heated exchange; Mariah Carey is no stranger to feuding with other artists.

I think what's most surprising in this feud between Nicki and Mariah is that the two collaborated a few years back on Mariah's remix to Up Out My Face. The two appeared in a video together with both ladies living it up and looking like the best of friends.

When news spread that Nicki Minaj was being added to Idol that was when the rumors started of a feud. Reports suggested that Mariah acted like a total diva when news of Nicki joining Idol became official. Rumors of a feud were immediately shot down between all parties involved. Fun…

Keyshia Cole & Rihanna Go Head To Head On November 19

That's of course if the release date sticks and given the state the music industry is in someones release date will change. Who wants to bet it will be Keyshia Cole and Rihanna? 

Anyway both singers are releasing new studio albums on November 19(at press time). First up is Keyshia Cole wit her new album Woman To Woman which features the hit single Enough Of No Love featuring Lil' Wayne and the newly released Trust & Believe. 

Keyshia Cole's new BET reality show Family First will air on October 9.

Rihanna will embark on her Diamonds World Tour starting in March 2013. 

In other Rihanna news word is that her and ex-boyfriend Chris Brown reunited again and this time locked themselves in a bathroom while security waited outside. Interesting!

Album Review: Miguel - Kaleidoscope Dream

Image
Kaleidoscope Dream is the second album from L.A. based singer Miguel. It is the follow up to his 2010 debut album All I Want Is You. 

Kaleidoscope Dream features the #1 R&B hit Adorn. The song was first released as a throwaway track eventually becoming a fan favorite. The positive response to Adorn lead to it becoming the album's first single.The length of the song was also extended since many felt the song was much too short in length. 

Much of Kaleidoscope Dream is formatted like Miguel's debut album. You can't help but notice the heavy Prince influence sonically, lyrically and vocally. 

The album highlights include:
Adorn
Don't Hold Back 
Use Me
The Thrill
Kaleidoscope Dream
Do You...
How Many Drinks?
Arch & Point 

Kaleidoscope Dream is in stores and online now!

T-Boz To Star In TLC Reality Show

T-Boz will star in her own reality show Totally T-Boz which will air coincidentally air on TLC(which also happens to be the name of the famed group she is from). 

The show will follow the Pop star as she relaunches her career and deals with single motherhood and health ailments. 

TLC(the network) is obviously revamping their programming as they plan to put their own spin on the famous VH1 show Hollywood Exes with Hollywood Ex-Wives. The show like Hollywood Exes will revolve around famed ex-wives. The show will star the ex-wives of DMX among others. 

I won't be surprised if both shows air on the same night.
