  • Cash starved R&B singer Toni Braxton may finally relent and bare all for Playboy magazine, after turning down the magazine three times in the past.

    Braxton, 43, definitely has the goods. She’s a svelte beauty, but cash may be her true motiviation.

    Despite winning six Grammy Awards and selling more than 40 million records worldwide, with a five-octave vocal range, she has been forced to file for bankruptcy twice.

    The latest filing was made Oct. 6, 2010. She claimed she had between $10 million and $50 million in unpaid debts and said she was worth between $1 million and $10 million, according to the California filing.

    She sought bankruptcy protection even though she had released a new album Pulse, in May, which debuted at No. 1 on R&B charts. Braxton was also a contestant on the 7th season of the reality show “Dancing with the Stars.”

    But that apparently didn’t give her enough of a career boost. Now she says she may be ready to pose for Playboy, likely earning a six-figure payday.

    “New Year, New opportunities. So I have been considering taking up Playboy’s offer to feature me on their cover this year. What you think?” she tweeted on Tuesday (Jan. 4).

    “”I would love to pose with Hugh Hefner though. He’s the sexiest guy I know over 30 ;-)”

    She assured her fans, “Of course it will be tastefully done :-).” And don’t expect full nudity.

    “Just a lil T and A. They have asked me about 3 times before,” she wrote.

    Braxton has two sons with musician Keri Lewis, whom she married in 2001. Denham Cole Braxton-Lewis was born in 2001, and Diesel Ky Braxton-Lewis, who was born in 2003.

    She last filed for bankruptcy in 1998 and last year, the IRS filed a lien against her for $396,000 in back taxes.
