Anita Baker, Melanie Fiona Circa 2012

Has one of our parent’s favorite artists gotten herself into some trouble? Reportedly, Anita Baker has an arrest warrant in Detroit. The Grammy-winning singer, who lives in Detroit, has a bench warrant issued for her. According to TMZ,  the 56-year-old failed to show up to court for a hearing in her current legal battle with a paint and decorating company. It’s widely reported that Ray Smith Painting and Decorating has sued the singer, claiming she owes the company $15,000 for services it performed inside her Grosse Pointe home — and so far, hasn’t paid. There’s no word on why Ms. Anita refused to pay the company. She hasn’t responded to reports yet, but tweeted the following message:

Guess she sounds a bit surprised. Story developing.
