TMZ noted today that R&B singer and reality star Toni Braxton’s foreclosed Duluth home has been up for sale for $1.1 million.
[UPDATED at 3:37 p.m.: I just confirmed from Patel Real Estate Group, the listing agent, that the house is now under contract. That doesn't necessarily mean the deal will close but that puts it off the market for now.]
The home, built in 2001, had been up for sale for more than four months. It has seven bedrooms, six baths, jacuzzi and three-car garage.
If you want more details on the house, Wells Fargo (which owns the property) has the details.
The singer (”Breathe Again,” “Un-Break My Heart”) purchased the property for $2 million in 2004 and had a $1.5 million mortgage.
She filed for bankruptcy protection in 2010 for a second time. The first time was in 1998.
Braxton, when I interviewed her in the spring of 2011 for the WE-TV show “Braxton Family Values” said she was planning to leave Atlanta for Los Angeles. She lost her home in May, 2011.
At the time, she said there’s a school in Los Angeles that could work with her son who has autism. She also planned to leave to “just be closer to work.”
“Braxton Family Values” concluded its second season in September to relatively strong ratings, averaging about 1 million viewers for each original airing. There has been no announcement about a third season.
Last month, VH1 featured Braxton in a “Behind the Music” episode where she talked about her financial woes. The free-spending Braxton said her first bankruptcy filing stemmed from an unfavorable record contract. Her second one came after she had medical problems that forced her to pull out of a series of headlining shows at the Flamingo in Las Vegas and insurance didn’t cover all the costs.
My colleague Tim Eberly helped find documents confirming the sale of Braxton’s property, as well as some history about it.
