Towanda Braxton (“Braxton Family Values”) facing a $76,000 fraud charge by former landlord

Snellville resident Towanda Braxton of WE-TV’s reality show “Braxton Family Values” filed for personal Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection earlier this year and will be deposed later this week by one of her creditors in a separate lawsuit. 

Braxton, 46, on April 2 filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection in court, citing $277,650 in assets but $547,056 in liabilities

A former landlord Michael Waggoner followed up with his own lawsuit, saying she was lying about her assets and income and owes him $76,000 over unpaid rent and damages from a rental home. He does not want the debt wiped out via Chapter 7 bankruptcy. 

According to the Blast, Braxton is set to be deposed about the Waggoner situation on November 21. 

Towanda purchased a home in Snellville in 2018 following her divorce with Andre Carter in 2017. They were married for 12 years and have two children. 

“Braxton Family Values” debuted in 2011 and has aired six seasons and 141 episodes. Towanda is the middle child of five sisters. 

Toni broke it big first in the 1990s as a platinum-selling solo R&B star. Tamar, once the show began, found her footing as a solo artist as well in recent years and won “Celebrity Big Brother” earlier this year. 

Toni has had her share of financial problems, filing for bankruptcy herself - twice

Of the five Braxton sisters, two live in metro Atlanta: Towanda and her sister Trina, who resides in Suwanee. Toni, who has lived in Atlanta in the past, currently has her primary residence in Los Angeles.
