Anita Baker, the very popular soul singer, is wanted by police in Detroit, Michigan, for she reportedly missed a court date to face accusations that she didn’t pay more than $15,000 for work on her estate on Grosse Point, according to a UPI report and Ron Smith’s “Oldies Music” website on Friday.

Anita Baker took to Twitter and messaged her surprise at the news on Thursday by writing:

WHATTT??!!... sittin’ in the kitchen watching this on TV. BIG time crazy. Atty on his way to TV Station. Devil she is busy.

Anita Baker is accused of not paying the thousands of dollars to Ray Smith Painting and Decorating after they completed work on her estate in the Tony neighborhood northeast of Detroit.

Daniel Gerow, the lawyer representing Roy Smith Painting and Decorating said that they certainly would have liked to resolve the issue before now. He said that he just wants to get his client the money he is owed. He claimed that they are not trying to give Baker a hard time or anything unnecessary; he just would like to collect the money for his client as his client is owed the money. He said, getting the money “could end it all right then.”

Baker has been threatened with jail time in 2010 when she allegedly failed to sign divorce documents – which a judge ordered her to do.
