Breaking News: Arrest Warrant Against Anita Baker Dropped

Published

on

HipHollywood has learned that a Michigan judge has dropped an arrest warrant for legendary R&B singer, Anita Baker. The warrant was issued on Wednesday after Baker failed to appear for a hearing in connection with a lawsuit filed against her by a construction company.

Baker is being sued by Ray A. Smith Painting and Decorating for approximately $15,000 for work done on her Grosse Pointe property back in 2009. The 56-year-old admits that she hired the company to repair water damage to her home, but is adamant they failed to complete the work after collecting $60,000 from her.

In September 2010, Ray Smith filed a lawsuit against Anita but dropped it after her lawyer threatened to counter sue. In 2011, Smith’s team filed again, but we’re told they did not notify Anita or her lawyer. They obtained a “default judgment” and waited three years before requesting a “creditor’s exam” as a means of collecting the Judgment, but again did not serve Ms. Baker. Instead, they informed the court that they tried to serve the singer several times but couldn’t locate her. The court responded by issuing what’s called a “substituted service,” a measure that allowed the plaintiff’s camp to post the new lawsuit on the door of Anita’s home. Unfortunately, Ms. Baker was touring at the time and never got the notice.

The Grammy Award-winning artist adds that she had no idea she was being threatened a second time until a relative phoned her and broke the news. “It’s sinister to me, and I just don’t know what to do with sinister,” she added.

Jill Scott’s Drunken Disaster NOT The Result Of Divorce Drama … So She Says.

Jill Scott is blaming it on the alcohol … not her divorce.

Jilly from Philly had one drink (or several) too many and decided to document her mood for all to see on social media. By the looks of it, she instantly regretted it.

Scott snatched the video down within hours of posting it, but that was still long enough for fans to reach out to the songstress with cries of concern in her comment section. Jill, who recently filed for divorce from her second husband, Mike Dobson, seemed to be crying in the beginning of the video … then laughing hysterically by the end. And, of course, her tribe of supporters took notice.

Unfortunately, Scott wasn’t here for the sympathy. Instead she clapped back at those insinuating she was drowning her divorce tears in a bottle of Henny. In an IG post captioned, “Real Talk. Good Night,” Jill explained that all y’all need to chill and not everything is about her ex.

So, do you believe her? Jill and Mike were married just 15 months before Scott filed for divorce citing “inappropriate marital conduct.” Dobson then went on a media tour shading the Neo-soul singer calling her controlling and evil.

Look, Jill, if you are hitting the bottle to hide your pain we won’t blame you. Even if it is “out of your mind” we’re sure it’s still stressful and that’s ok. On the other hand, if you were justing getting super lit on a Saturday, then more power to you!
