Toni Braxton Loses Rights to 27 of Her Songs

A buyer outbids "Breathe Again" singer.

Published July 29, 2013

Fresh off of finalizing her divorce from her x-husband, Mint Condition keyboardist Keri Lewis, R&B star Toni Braxton is making headlines again for another major unload. The rights to more than two dozen of her songs were bought recently by a big baller.

According to TMZ, during her second bankruptcy case, the "Breathe Again" songstress had struck a deal in which she could buy back 27 songs from her catalog for $20,000. However, she risked losing it all if she was outbid.

A buyer by the name of Ross M. Klein did just that. Klein doubled Braxton's buy-back rate, snagging 27 of her hits, including "How Many Ways," "You’re Making Me High" and "Always."

The singer's most recognizable hit, “Un-Break My Heart," is not among the 27. That single, from her second album, won her a Grammy Award and the No. 1 slot on the Billboard chart for 11 weeks in row.
