DETROIT: An arrest warrant has been issued for Grammy Award-winning singer Anita Baker.
Baker´s lawyer, Jamal Hamood, says he plans to file a motion Friday to cancel the warrant. Hamood says Baker wasn´t served with papers and didn´t know she had been sued in 2011 by Ray A. Smith Painting & Decorating.
He says Baker is out of town and will remain so until the warrant issue is cleared up.
The company´s lawyer, Daniel Gerow, tells The Detroit News he doesn´t want Baker to go to jail, but only wants to see his client get paid.
