The Grammy award winning singer had the work done back in 2009 and claimed that she wasn't served with the lawsuit and didn't find out there was a default judgment in the civil case until last week.

The bench warrant stemmed from Baker's failure to appear at a creditor's examination last September after she was subpoenaed in a case that alleges she failed to pay $15,351.41 for work done on her home in Gross Point Michigan according to USA Today.

Baker’s attorney believes she does not owe the money, according to USA Today Baker believes she’s over paid "given the quality of work that was provided."

The lawsuit was filed against Baker in 2011, here attorney Jamal Hammond asked for the emergency hearing because that was the first time Baker had heard of the lawsuit.

The emergency hearing was granted and on Monday the judge lifted the bench warrant issued on Baker.

Anita Baker is recognized for her sultry voice and classic R&B hits of the 80’s and 90’s with songs “Sweet Love”, “Catch up in the Rapture” and “Body and Soul”.
