Considering how well they appear to get along on “Braxton Family Values,” Toni Braxton and her ex-husband, Keri Lewis, are the last people that we would expect to see in family court. But apparently, friendship is never guaranteed in divorce and co-parenting.
According to The Jasmine Brand, the six-time Grammy Award-winning singer reportedly filed documents with the family courts in Georgia back in October in an attempt to acquire back child support from the former Mint Condition singer. In addition to paying the past due balance, Braxton is asking Lewis to begin paying the $2,000 per month that he was originally ordered to pay.
Interestingly, less than one year ago, the singer-turned-reality-star bragged to Bethenny Frankel about having a “very white” divorce because she got along so well with her ex-husband. I suppose that this means they’re now experiencing black divorce, according to Ms. Braxton’s standards. As you may recall, the two married in 1998, separated in 2009 and finally had their divorce finalized in 2013.
Pettiness aside, it was very refreshing to see the former couple getting along so well, so it really sucks to see that she has been forced to get the courts involved in their family’s affairs. Hopefully, these two can iron out whatever issues they’re experiencing and return to co-parenting their sons, Denim Cole and Diezel Ky, in a friendly manner.
