According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the reality star is scheduled to be deposed by Wagoner on November 21. 

Via The Blast:

In the bankruptcy case, Wagoner sued Braxton accusing her of owing him $76,000 in unpaid rent and damages to his property. He accuses her of lying about her income and assets to avoid paying her creditors. He is demanding the debt she owes him not be wiped clean in the bankruptcy.

She denied the allegations of fraud or that she has been hiding assets. The alleged damage to the rental home included knife holes in doors and bedroom walls, along with fire damage. He claims Braxton filed for bankruptcy as he was trying to collect on the money.

In newly filed documents, Wagoner claims to have recently learned information about her beauty company T. Braxton Beauty Company.

Braxton previously testified the company was generating no money but Wagoner has obtained bank records showing around $50,000 being deposited into the account every month. The records show the same amount being spent during the month.

He says she has “funneled her income” in the account, and plans to question her about the transactions during the upcoming deposition.

Braxton filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in April, listing $277,650 in assets but $547,056.39 in liabilities.
