Singer Anita Baker Responds to Arrest Warrant

R&B singer Anita Baker was shocked when a Detroit judge issued an arrest warrant after Baker failed to show up in court over a dispute with a home contractor.
Baker told TMZ that she hired Ray Smith Painting and Decorating in 2009 to repair the outside of her home after storm damage. The job came with a $75,000 price tag and the songstress paid $60,000 in advance.
She says that the company did not complete the job and the work that they did do was so piss poor that she was forced to finish it herself.
The contractor filed a suit seeking the balance of $15,000 but Baker says she was never served with legal notice. The contractor said he put the notice on her front door. This lead to a default judgment.
Baker's lawyer will be in court next week to get the warrant lifted and to try and set aside the default judgment.
Team Anita or Team Contractor?
