Anita Baker Lawsuit Claims Company Intended To Embarrass Her Publically

DETROIT (WWJ) – Grammy Award-winning singer Anita Baker has countersued a company that says it hasn’t been paid for work done on her Detroit-area home.

The Detroit Free Press reports that Baker’s attorney says lawyers for Ray A. Smith Painting and Decorating “intended to put her in as embarrassing a light as possible.”

The 2011 lawsuit against Baker led to a warrant for her arrest, but the warrant was dismissed last month.

The company claims Baker owes it $15,000 for work done on her Grosse Pointe home, but the singer’s lawyer has said Baker didn’t know she had been sued.
