Toni Braxton Impersonator Asking For Your Help

- By Bossip Staff

Posted by Bossip Staff

The Toni Braxton impersonator we reported on a while back, Trina Johnson, is pleading for your help with her legal woes:

A rep for celebrity impersonator Trina Johnson-Finn who was arrested in Suriname and charged with fraud for performing as Toni Braxton, has released a statement saying her client has been held “under corrupt conditions” since early March. Publicist  Billie Jordan said Johnson-Finn’s proof of innocence “was clearly established.” In accordance with the law, U.S. booking agency RNRH Entertainment employed Johnson to impersonate Braxton, according to Jeter. Johnson-Finn states: “I am completely innocent. I was hired to do a tribute imitation act for a birthday celebration.”…

The entertainer said she was told that everyone knew she was a celebrity look-a-like. Event contracts, business licenses and a number of email transmissions support Johnson-Finn’s innocence, Jeter says. As previously reported, Johnson-Finn was attacked with flying objects by angry fans who thought they were getting the real Toni Braxton. According to Jeter, Angel Ventura of Events 4 Suriname – a Paramaribo, Suriname company – promoted the event to the Surinamese people as a Toni Braxton Concert. Ventura contracted Johnson through RNRH Entertainment. “I am appalled by Angel Ventura and his companions and I feel bad for the people of Suriname who were also deceived,” said Johnson. Ventura vanished after the show began, apparently with all the proceeds from more than 2,000 ticket sales, leaving Johnson and husband Raymond Finn accused unjustly.

“My wife is a victim, she had no intention of deceiving anyone, she had no involvement in promoting or advertising the event, and she received none of the proceeds of the event,” said Finn. Finn is fighting to secure his wife’s release. Although she is innocent, Johnson could be held for three years. Johnson’s family and friends have appealed for help from Senator Harry Reid and Congresswoman Shelley Berkeley as well as other top U.S. officials, publicist Jordan stated.

This is a lesson to all you fakes out there. Get your own gig. WAM

    Some people do get caught up in schemes of others. Had cousin that went oversees to perform and they took her passport. She got the hell out of there with American embassy help. Maybe they can help this lady too. Americans get the hell beat out of them in other countries. Next time you will know , you ain’t in Las Vegas.

    oo and “zooklady”…………Suriname is NOT Guyana.
    Guyana is known as the ghetto of South-america.
    If this happened in Guyana,this woman would be “missing”.
    Get you damn facts straight….just google Suriname and Guyana and you will find that it is NOT the same place. Ignorance still runs rampant I see

  • Ms. Littlejohn

    THIS is the impersonator?? Awww, shit. You’d have to be a fool to think this is Toni Braxton.

  • idunno

    She doesn’t look anything like Toni Braxton. I can’t see how her intention would have been to fool people. Maybe she can sing like Toni, which is why I guess she’s an impersonator.

  • idunno
