While speaking with the press about her upcoming reality show “Braxton Family Values”, Toni Braxton also spoke on filing for bankruptcy not once, but twice.

As previously reported, Braxton filed for bankruptcy in 2010 and was reportedly $50 million in debt after previously filing in 1998.

Not shy to talk about her money woes, a brave Toni told HipHopWired and fellow press that she was ready to share her story with the world.

“When I filed for bankruptcy, I was like ‘I can’t do it, I don’t wanna be on the show, I can’t put my life out there’ but my sisters told me you have to tell your story because no one knows what really happened…Everyone knows I have heart issues, but no one knows why I have heart issues….

So I reveal my health problems that led to my financial problems…”

She adds,

“Even with the first bankruptcy, no one knew that my first royalty check was less than $2,000 so that’s why I filed for bankruptcy…I talk about that during the show.”

“Braxton Family Values” airs April 12 at 9pm ET/PT on WE tv, click here to see our exclusive with Toni and her sisters.
