Toni Braxton- Bankruptcy- Multi Flier

"Your first bankruptcy occurred while you were signed to LaFace,but you weren’t able to talk about it. What went wrong?

No I couldn’t [talk about it] because I had a 10-year gag order. After TLC talked publicly about their bankruptcy [the label prohibited] other LaFace artists to talk, but now I can. I sold more than 40 million records, yet my royalties were less than $2000 dollars. People don’t understand that this issue went all the way to Congress about bankruptcy. All contracts are null and void except for a recording artist. Can you believe it? But the industry has changed now."

Discoid lupus is a form of lupus that affects the skin (face, scalp, neck). It often results in lesions and scarring (eg the singer Seal's facial scars). By itself, discoid lupus is not life threatening and doesn't affect vital organs. While skin is the body's largest "organ," if she has the type of lupus that affects her internal organs, she has systemic lupus, not just discoid lupus. Systemic lupus is life threatening.
