Anita Baker has pulled Babyface as her support act after allegedly facing

"verbal abuse and threats of violence" from his fans.

The 65-year-old soul singer has decided to continue her 'Songstress Tour'

solo after claiming to have received hate from the 64-year-old R'n'B star's following.

Last month, Anita accused Babyface - whose real name is Kenneth Brian Edmonds

of making his fans believe he was the co-headliner of the tour.

She wrote: “He should tell you guys, the Truth."

On May 10, Babyface's set at New Jersey’s Prudential Centre was axed so that Anita would have enough time to finish her set.

Babyface tweeted: “I am truly sorry to my fans who have been waiting for us to hit the stage this evening at @PruCenter.

“I was asked not to perform in order to give Ms Baker her space and time to perform her show in its entirety.
