“Braxton Family Values” star Towanda Braxton is demanding her ex-landlord’s lawsuit accusing her of fraud be dismissed.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Braxton is responding to the suit filed by Michael Wagoner, which seeks to collect on $76k owed from the reality star.

Back in June, Braxton was sued by her former landlord as part of her bankruptcy case. He accused her of lying about her income and assets in court.

Braxton says Wagoner has shown no proof of fraud and wants the claims dismissed, along with the debt she owes him to be wiped clean in her bankruptcy.

A judge has yet to rule.

In his lawsuit, Wagoner explained he is owed $76,000 from Braxton relating to a judgment stemming from a lawsuit over unpaid rent and damages to a rental home.

He is demanding the debt NOT be wiped clean as part of Braxton’s recent Chapter 7 bankruptcy.

Braxton and Wagoner entered into a deal back in September 2018, where she agreed to make payments to settle the debt. He says she only made one payment and refused to make the rest. He claims she damaged the home she rented from him substantially. He claimed she left the home with knife holes in the garage doors and bedroom walls and claims she caused fire damage to the home.

Once he started to try and collect on the money, he claims Braxton filed for bankruptcy.

Wagoner accuses the reality star of misrepresenting the value of her property in the bankruptcy. He also accuses her of failing to disclose all her income and her full list of assets.
