Toni Braxton's Ex-Husband Responds To Her Comments About Their Divorce
Toni Braxton’s ex-husband, Keri Lewis, has responded to comments she made about their divorce during her appearance on Facebook Watch’s Red Table Talk. As previously reported, Braxton said, "I felt shallow because my ex-husband and I broke up for money issues. I found out I had lupus at the time, I couldn't make money because I had lupus, I had to cancel the show. That was my personal contribution to the marriage failing, because who wants to take care of a person who's sick all the time?" She added that she had to pay Lewis alimony as part of their divorce. Lewis responded and said, "I feel the need to address and shed light on the matter, as the impression is being made that I came for her finances and/or wasn’t there for Toni…..To give insight on the alimony payments, Toni’s attorneys suggested she have a prenuptial agreement put in place prior to our wedding, and they drafted one as they saw fit. Because of my love for her and being optimistic of marriage lasting forever, I didn’t feel the need to have an attorney, as I wasn’t going to contest anything in the prenup. Fast-forward to 2012 after separating, I moved out and at some point later, Toni mentioned to me that the payments set in the prenup would start being deposited into my account. I received alimony for around 3 years between 2012 and 2014. I didn’t even use an attorney in our divorce (I also don’t recommend that to anyone)."
