Las Vegas celebrity impersonator Trina Johnson has been languishing in a Surinamese jail ever since she was unwittingly used in a Toni Braxton concert scam in February. Trina Johnson says she was booked to do a tribute concert to Toni Braxton in Suriname only to find out that concert goers were expecting the real thing. Moments into her second song the audience of 1500 began pelting her with bottles and booing. She was arrested shortly after. Meanwhile the concert promoter and all the proceeds from the concert were nowhere to be found. Trina is facing a three-year prison sentence after authorities in the Latin American republic accused her of fraud for impersonating singer Toni Braxton even though Trina claims to have a contract that clearly states she was booked to impersonate the singer. Prosecutors in Suriname are allowed to detain the accused up to 67 days, and there’s no such thing as bail. Trina’s husband was also arrested but he was released after spending 2 weeks in a 8 feet by 10 foot open-air jail cell with no heat and no lights and 11 other prisoners existing on a breakfast of one cup of hot tea and a small piece of bread. A combined lunch and dinner consisting of a cup of boiled rice and maybe 2 ounces of protein, either fish, chicken or “mystery meat” and later at night, a cup of flavored water.

    AM ABSOLUTELY PISSED OF. THE GIRL TRIED TO RIP PEOPLE OFF, AND SHE IS SEEN AS THE VICTIM. WHY DON’T PEOPLE WRITE ABOUT THE FACT THAT SHE CAME ON TV, ACTING LIKE SHE WAS TONI BRAXTON’S MANAGER THE DAY BEFORE. SHE CLEARLY SAID ON TV….” TONI IS LOOKING FORWARD TO GIVING YOU GUYS AN INCREDIBLE CONCERT, BUT CAN NOT GIVE ANY INTERVIEWS AT THE MOMENT!!!

    PHONY TONI KNEW WHAT SHE WAS DOING!!! IS IT BECAUSE THIS IS A SMALL COUNTRY, THEY DON’T HAVE JUSTICE???

    TONI BRAXTON HEARD ABOUT IT, TWO HOURS BEFORE PHONY WAS SUPPOSED TO GET ON THAT STAGE, AND WAS FURIOUS THAT SHE WAS PROMOTED AS DOING A CONCERT IN SURINAME, WHEN SHE WAS NOT!!!

    THE PROBLEM WITH PHONY TONI WAS, THAT IT IS ON TAPE THAT SHE ACTED LIKE TONI’S MANAGER THE DAY BEFORE.

    SHE WAS GONNA ACT LIKE SHE WAS GONNA FALL AND BE HURT AFTER THE SECOND SONG, BUT PEOPLE ALLREADY SAW THE FAKE TONI.

    THE PROMOTOR IS NOT, AND I REPEAT NOTTTTT FROM SURINAME. HE IS AMERICAN!!!!!!!

    THEY WORKED TOGETHER, AND IT WENT WRONGGGGG!! NOW THEY ACT LIKE THE POOR INNOCENT PEOPLE BEING TRICKET, AND IT PISSES ME OFF. HOW ABOUT THE CONCERT GOERS, WHO BELIEVED THAT THEY WERE GONNA GO SEE TONI BRAXTON???

    TONI HERSELF IS MAD AS HELL, BECAUSE SOMEONE TOLD HER BEFORE HAND!!!

    That is the thruth the whole thruth, and nothing but the truth, and sorry people…..THEY TRIED TO SCAM, AND IT WENT BAD!!!!

    THE ORGINISATION WAS AMERICANNNNNN!!!!!! THANK YOU!!

    THE AMERICAN AMBASSY IN SURINAME SAW THE WHOLE THING, AND KNOWS THAT IT WAS A SCAM, THAT’S WHY THEY WILL NOTTTTTTTTT GET INVOLVED. SO DON’T TRY TO MAKE THIS COUNTRY LOOK BAD, BECAUSE YOU AND YOUR WIFE GOT CAUGHT!!!!!!!!

    Toni Braxton is in some drama today. A woman claiming to be Toni Braxton (she also claimed to be Toni’s manager) has fraudulently set up concerts with different cities saying Toni Braxton would perform. One concert date was this past Saturday night in Suriname, South America.

    When it was time for Toni to hit the stage, of course, her imposter Trina Johnson came out. The crowd boo’d her and threw things at her. Trina and her husband were soon after arrested for her fraudulent activities. Toni and her camp put out this statement:

    “Many apologizes to the fans for the mis-representation, we are working on finding out exactly what happened and what the whole situation was.”
