Singer Anita Baker is speaking out, alleging that she is the victim of a sinister conspiracy which led police to take out a warrant for her arrest this week.
A Detroit judge issued the warrant for the Grammy-winning singer after she supposedly failed to show up in court over a dispute with a home contractor.
Anita hired Ray Smith Painting and Decorating in 2009 to fix storm damage to her home, paying $60,000 up front for a $75,000 job. The issue?
Baker says Smith didn't finish the job, and what he did do was beyond bad. So much so that she finished it herself. Still, he's suing her for the balance.
She never even got served with legal papers, she claims, so when she no-showed the court date, she didn't realize she was no-showing anything.
