Anita Baker's son is all grown up now and looks like his mom with his long hair
Walter Bridgforth Jr., one of the sons of singer and songwriter Anita Baker, took to Instagram to share a photo of himself showing off his long hair.
In the image, the 25-year-old man was posing in a studio in front of a music console wearing a long-sleeved dark shirt while looking directly at the camera in a serious look.
One of the features that attracted more attention about the photo was Walter’s hair, which was styled in thin dreadlocks, what made him look very similar to his famous mother.
In the caption, Walter revealed that it was his birthday that day and that he was getting old. As soon as he uploaded that photo, his friends and followers took to the comment section to wish him a happy birthday.
Walter is one of the sons that Anita and her ex-husband, Walter Bridgforth Sr. had during their long-lasting relationship. They walked down the aisle in 1988 but, unfortunately, for the family, they parted ways in 2005 and finished their divorce in 2007.
Even though things seemed to be okay between the ex-couple, Anita faced a potential time in jail given the fact that she allegedly didn’t fulfill what she and Walter Sr. stated in their divorce papers.
According to My Family Law, Anita and Walter Sr. agreed that the royalties from two albums the singer released during the couple’s relationship would be split into halves. Walter, who only received $12,000, considered that he was entitled to more money.
The problem was that the first divorce settlement didn’t include the term ‘mechanical’ royalties, which are a royalty paid to a songwriter whenever a copy of one of their songs is made.
Consequently, Anita decided not to pay that money because it wasn’t stated in the initial document.
The problem ended when the judge ordered a court-appointed expert to meet with Anita to rewrite the letters with ‘mutually-acceptable language.’
