LOS ANGELES -- Toni Braxton has been sued by a wardrobe and costume designer who alleges the Grammy-winning singer wrote him a bad check and still owes him $15,000 for work on a Las Vegas show.

Anthony Franco filed the lawsuit Friday in Los Angeles Superior Court claiming the sultry R&B singer had agreed to pay him $35,000 to design the entire wardrobe for the "Toni Braxton: Revealed" show.

Franco says he received a check, but it was returned for insufficient funds. He alleges Braxton and co-defendant Liberty Entertainment Inc. put a stop-payment on the check.

Franco claims he was eventually paid $20,000, leaving an outstanding balance of $15,000.

Braxton is best known for such hits as "Breathe Again," "You're Makin' Me High" and "Love Shoulda Brought You Home." She has starred on Broadway in "Aida" and "Beauty and the Beast."

Braxton's show at the Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas began last August.

Braxton's publicist did not immediately reply Tuesday to a message left with her agent, Ben Bernstein, seeking comment.

"People have their opinions and that doesn't mean that their opinions are wrong or right. I just take it with a grain of salt because opinions are like as*holes, everyone has one". -Felicia Finley-

Toni Braxton can afford $35K for clothes? I always assumed that when she needed a new outfit for a gig she headed out to Marshalls.
No good can possibly come from using this vast wasteland of error and deliberate deceit. You should get off of it and warn others away. You should make sure your children and grandchildren know what a corrupt and morally bankrupt institution it truly is.
