R&B veteran Toni Braxton will be returning to Vegas this weekend to kick off her mini-tour at the Palms Casino Resort.
Despite reportedly losing control of 27 of her biggest hits in her bankruptcy settlement, in a recent interview with the Nevada Review Journal Toni called herself “lucky,” noting how her doctors once told her she would never tour again as a result of her Lupus diagnosis.
Five years ago Toni had a very lucrative deal with the Flamingo Hotel that went up in flames when she was stricken ill and unable to perform.
A second bankruptcy soon followed thanks to her insurance company, Lloyds of London, refusing to honor her Flamingo-cancellation policy, a decision that sent Toni spiraling into debt once again.
As for her new tour, Toni says getting insurance wasn’t easy… or cheap. “Insurance. Yeah, that part was challenging. We worked it out though. It was expensive, but it was also worth it.”
Looking back on her many challenges Toni says she’s in a happier place than she was at the height of her fame, and isn’t as testy as she used to be when asked about her double bankruptcies.
“I have nothing else- no other scandals on my plate. I don’t do drugs. I don’t drink. Well, I like Champagne. I don’t do sextapes. If money is all you have on me, I’ll take that. It’s actually not so bad,” she says.
