Toni Braxton: Five Reasons the R&B Star Is Still a Total Diva

Toni Braxton's been riding the roller coaster of fame ever since she broke into the R&B world in 1996 with the breakup anthem of all breakup anthems, "Un-Break My Heart."

Through the '90s and early 2000s, the singer snagged six Grammys, seven American Music Awards, and nine Billboard trophies. Fame was clearly on her side. But then fortune turned on Toni and the songstress was forced to file for bankruptcy twice, in 1998 and again in 2010.

In spite of all of the ups and downs, though, one thing has remained unchanged: Braxton's diva tendencies.
