Toni Braxton's divorce from Keri Lewis has been finalised after their split in 2009.

Toni Braxton's divorce has been finalised.

The 'Un-Break My Heart' hitmaker split from musician Keri Lewis, with whom she has two sons, after 12 years of marriage in 2009 and is now legally single.

A spokesperson for the Grammy-winner told "The couple has had an amicable split and will still both be actively involved in raising their two sons, 11-year-old Denim and 10-year-old Diezel."

The 45-year-old star is now ready for a fresh start as she also recently settled all of her bankruptcy debts.

She filed for insolvency for the second time in 2010, claiming she had debts as high as $50 million, and finally resolved all of her financial issues after reaching a deal to pay her trustee $150,000 earlier this month.

According to legal documents, Toni, who first filed for bankruptcy in 1998, got into trouble again after she struck a deal with the trustee to buy back some of the personal property she lost by paying back $5,000 per month over 15 months but she failed to make the final lump sum payment of $50,000.

The trustee and the singer finally came to an agreement recently that will see her pay back that $50,000.

Toni also agreed to hand over $100,000 from the $754,000 she made from performances overseas.

A judge is expected to sign off on the settlement later this month.
