Anita Baker - Babyface

Anita Baker has taken to social media to get a few things off of her chest after the fallout following her New Jersey show, where Babyface said he was told not to perform.

The legendary singer, songwriter, and producer took to his Instagram page to issue an apology to fans who were anxiously awaiting his performance at the Prudential Center on May 10.

I am truly sorry to my fans who have been waiting for us to this the stage this evening at the Prudential Center.

I was asked not to perform in order to give Ms. Baker her space and time to perform her show in its entirety.

My band and I are extremely saddened we didn’t get to perform for y’all tonight.

A month later, Anita Baker is now calling on Babyface to tell his fans “the truth” because she now claims to be getting cyberbullied and harassed by his “crazies” over his “false narrative.”

The “Sweet Love” singer first took to her Twitter timeline with some shady subliminal messages about Babyface, who she referred to as the “supporting act.”
