First it was the hospitalization -- and then the Flamingo show cancellations. Those have been followed by an insurance claim that Lloyds of London wouldn’t honor, and as singer Toni Braxton fights to get that overturned, now comes word that she’s being kicked out of her Los Angeles home by the bank wanting to foreclose.
It’s been one trial after another for the “Unbreak My Heart” songstress, who fought health problems during her run of shows at the Flamingo two years ago. She was taken to a hospital here with heart muscle problems, and it caused the cancellation of her show.
Toni says she purchased special insurance to protect her in case the Flamingo shows were canceled. Lloyds, Toni says, refuses to pay the losses on the grounds that she suffered from an undisclosed pre-existing condition. She has sued the world’s largest insurance broker for refusing the reimbursement, and they’ve now countersued because she didn’t advise them of the pericarditis heart-muscle lining ailment. The British broker also has tacked on damages to its lawsuit.
As if that wasn’t sufficient heartache, Toni has reportedly defaulted on mortgage payments to Bank of America, which has filed court documents for a foreclosure against her Century City home near Beverly Hills, Calif.
