theJasmineBRAND.com has exclusively learned, Toni Braxton’s ex-husband has auctioned off the royalties to nearly 80 of the songs he wrote, which he can hopefully use to get the lawsuit filed against him for back child support dismissed.
theJasmineBRAND.com broke the news that Braxton slapped her ex-husband Keri Lewis with a lawsuit demanding he be found in contempt for failing to pay his required child support for their two children.
The 47-year-old singer/reality star reportedly filed the legal battle in Georgia court for Lewis owing her back support for their two sons, Denim Cole Braxton-Lewis and Diezel Ky Braxton-Lewis.
According to Braxton’s bankruptcy documents, she is to receive $2k a month from Lewis for support for the 2 children they share together. The contempt lawsuit is seeking to have a court order find that Lewis has not been paying the ordered support and to have a order to get the back child support ASAP.
Lewis recently held an auction to sell off 100% of his future ASCAP royalties for a total of 78 songs he wrote. The auction ad stated that his music had generated money from everything from The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, Everybody Hates Chris and even Braxton Family Values.
Lewis reportedly attempted to sell his royalties for $16,500, but despite the auction ending with over 200 bidders it sold off for less than the asking price at $16,400.
Lewis may need the cash to pay up on the back support he owes Toni and hopefully get the contempt lawsuit dismissed. See the exclusive court docs.
