Exclusive: Anita Baker Says She’s Being “Terrorized”

Published

on

Anita Baker is speaking exclusively to HipHollywood.com and The Insider about the warrant issued for her arrest on Wednesday by a Michigan judge. “I feel like I’m being terrorized,” the legendary songstress revealed during an emotional Friday evening phone call with our Kevin Frazier.

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.

Hamood was in court on Friday, filing a motion to have the warrant canceled.

Finally! Taraji P. Henson Confirms Relationship With NFL Baller Kelvin Hayden

Taraji is finally letting the world know what it already knew – she’s in a relationship with NFL cornerback Kelvin Hayden. Henson dished the (cold) tea while on Essence’s Yes, Girl! podcast saying that the reason she kept it a secret was because she’s a private person.

“I’m not the type to blast my personal business. But, you know, I think that’s important for people to know. I’m happy. I’m very very happy. I just am,” the “Empire” actress shared.

Rumors first circulated in December 2015 about Henson and 34-year-old Hayden, who played for the Chicago Bears and the Indianapolis Colts, after photos surfaced of the pair holding hands in Miami. Though Hayden has appeared on her Instagram feed, the Golden Globe winner never confirmed the intimate details until now.

“You know, we’ve been together for two years. No one would really know that because I don’t really blast my info like that. But I’m very happy,” she said.

Taraji girl we could tell. The Hidden Figures actress even broke out singing, “Finally! It has happened to me,”—quoting the CeCe Peniston‘s song “Finally.”

Henson also revealed the couple will be celebrating the holidays together with the new puppy Hayden gifted her with as an early Christmas present.

“Big #KBall with Lil squirt #KBall watching daddy brush his teeth! 😩😂😂😂,” she wrote, teasing a photo of her boo and new pup.

And speaking of Christmas, in case you missed it Taraji hosted her “White Hot Holidays” special on Fox Wednesday night. Peep the clips of Henson having some fun with her celebrity guests including Method Man, DJ Khaled, Neicy Nash, Salt-N-Pepa and The Ying Yang Twins.
