Bench Warrant Issued For Anita Baker’s Arrest
A bench warrant has been issued for the arrest of Grammy Award-winning singer, Anita Baker.
The warrant was issued on Wednesday after Baker failed to appear for a subpoena on September 10, 2013 in a lawsuit brought on by Ray A. Smith Painting and Decorating, Inc. According to court documents, the singer owes the company $15,000 for construction work done at her Michigan home in 2009.
The company’s lawyer, Daniel Gerow, tells The Detroit News he doesn’t want Baker to go to jail, but only wants to see his client get paid. Baker issued her own response to the craziness on Thursday, tweeting:
“WHATTT??!!… sittin’ in the kitchen watching this on TV. BIG time crazy. Atty on his way to TV Station. Devil sho is busy.”
Something tells us this situation will be resolved sooner rather than later.
