Toni Braxton’s Ex-Husband Reacts To Singer Paying Him Alimony – Don’t Call Me A B*tch!
During a recent interview on “Red Table Talk” last Monday (Nov. 26), Toni Braxton was asked about her divorce with Mint Condition singer Keri Lewis. She revealed she had to fork alimony out to her ex-husband. She explained,
I went through this phase of, ‘oooh, men are the new b*tches!’ That’s how I felt. That’s what I was so angry about.
As her comments have attracted attention, Lewis has come forward with his side of the situation. In a lengthy caption on Instagram he wrote,
I feel the need to address and shed light on the matter, as the impression is being made that I came for her finances and/or wasn’t there for Toni…..To give insight on the alimony payments, Toni’s attorneys suggested she have a prenuptial agreement put in place prior to our wedding, and they drafted one as they saw fit. Because of my love for her and being optimistic of marriage lasting forever, I didn’t feel the need to have an attorney, as I wasn’t going to contest anything in the prenup. Fast-forward to 2012 after separating, I moved out and at some point later, Toni mentioned to me that the payments set in the prenup would start being deposited into my account. I received alimony for around 3 years between 2012 and 2014. I didn’t even use an attorney in our divorce (I also don’t recommend that to anyone).
He added his discomfort in being referred to as a b*tch,
In addition, while I often did not agree with the creative liberties that were taken in representing our relationship (Toni’s Book, Lifetime movie, Braxton Family Values, RedTableTalk), we are raising two sons and it can NEVER be to the degree of her referencing ME as a bitch.. that’s a problem
