Although singer Toni Braxton has sold millions of records and has fans across the globe, she received less than $2,000 in royalties for her first two albums, reported the Wall Street Journal.
The article said the singer, who is currently in the middle of her second bankruptcy, recently told TV Guide that she received $1,972 for those albums - which includes her smash hit "Un-Break My Heart" -and that she was previously unable to disclose that information because of a gag order. The newspaper said that while Braxton has recorded new albums and performed on Broadway since her first bankruptcy in 1998, she said her second bankruptcy occurred after she canceled multiple Las Vegas performances following a lupus diagnosis.
Some critics say Braxton recently signed on for her new WEtv reality show, "Braxton Family Values" due to her financial problems, according to the source.
Braxton has won six Grammy's, seven American Music Awards, and five Billboard Music Awards since she released her self-titled debut in 1993.
