Anita Baker misses hearing, judge issues warrant

Posted: Updated:

DETROIT (WJBK) -  A bench warrant has been issued for R&B legend Anita Baker.

Ray Smith Painting and Decorating has sued Baker, claiming she owes the company $15,000 for services it performed at her Grosse Pointe home.

Baker allegedly refused to pay and missed a court hearing Wednesday.

This isn't the first time Baker has faced the possibility of jail. In 2010, a judge threatened to lock her up if she didn't agree to give some of her music royalties to her ex-husband as part of their divorce.
