LATEST: Toni Braxton is still suing her ex-manager, despite false reports she had dropped the lawsuit. Yesterday (31JAN07) it was claimed the R+B singer had cancelled plans to sue BARRY HANKERSON and label Blackground Records for breach of contract. But the singer's representatives insist the case is going ahead - it was simply re-filed and will proceed at New York State Court as opposed to Federal Court, on the advice of her counsel. Braxton's lawyer PETER L HAVILAND says in statement, "We think this is the fastest route to getting Toni Braxton free and clear of Barry Hankerson." Braxton first filed suit 12 January (07), accusing Hankerson of profitting from her switch from Arista Records to his own Blackground Records label in 2003. She claims Hankerson owes her at least $10 million (GBP5.2 million) from the label change.
