Anita Baker almost went to the bighouse last week. Here’s the skinny from the Detroit News:
“Singer-songwriter Anita Baker faces the threat of jail in a contempt hearing [Friday] in Wayne Circuit Court after refusing to sign documents that could turn some of her music royalties over to her ex-husband. The emotionally drained eight-time Grammy Award winner never read the documents she objected to because she had been crying for two days, her lawyers explained. She was unable to “digest” the documents even when given a chance to read them in court Wednesday. “I’ve been in the music business more than 20 years. We are talking about a multimillion-dollar business,” said the 52-year-old Grosse Pointe mother of two teen sons”.
