Baker Ends Royalties Dispute

Anita Baker has reportedly worked out a deal with ex-husband Walter Bridgforth to figure out how much he’s owed in music royalties as part of the couple’s divorce.

The agreement reportedly includes appointing an expert in music contracts to help determine how much Bridgforth is entitled to from two albums released during the couple’s 20-year marriage.

Baker had reportedly disputed the inclusion of mechanical royalties from songs on recent “best of” albums, which she said weren’t included in the divorce agreement.
