Although Toni Braxton has sold over 60 millions records worldwide, the six-time Grammy winner hasn’t had the best luck with her finances. In 1998 and 2010, she filed for bankruptcy due to her unpaid financial obligations totaling between $10 million and $50 million.

The 45-year-old vocalist is the next artist to be featured on VH1′s “Behind the Music” which airs on Monday October 29th. And she’s throwing shade and shaking the tables on Mama Winfrey. Toni Braxton claims that her career was damaged after her 1998 appearance on “The Oprah Winfrey Show.”
“She was so freakin’ mean to me,” Braxton says. “I was in shock!”
“She says to me, ‘I heard you have Gucci flatware,’” recalled Braxton. “I’m Oprah Winfrey and even I don’t have Gucci flatware. You don’t have Gucci flatware because you didn’t want to buy it, not because you couldn’t afford it! What do you mean?”
#TeamOprah hasn’t, and probably won’t, respond to Toni’s comments. Most financial woos stem from overzealous spending habits (insert Gucci flatware) so I think it’s little unfair to blame the TV titan for her mishaps. But I’m sure it was hard for Toni to keep up her fabulous lifestyle and support her family as R&B music died right before her eyes.
