Tamar Braxton and Vince Herbert have sadly called it quits.
The singer and her husband of nine years have confirmed that their marriage is over, as a rep for Braxton just released the following statement:
“At this time we can confirm Ms. Braxton has made an extremely difficult decision and has filed for divorce from Vincent Herbert.
“Collectively, their son Logan and his well-being during this extremely unfortunate process is most important. We ask that everyone respects her privacy during this incredibly difficult time.
“She appreciates everyone’s love and prayers.”
According to TMZ, Braxton filed for divorce in Los Angeles Country this week, just one month prior to the couple’s official nine-year anniversary.
Before news of this split was made public, the arrist posted a cryptic message on Instagram, which read as follows:
“Dear God… I’m ready.”
While there were rumblings last year of marital trouble for these stars, Braxton did share the photo above this past Father’s Day.
She wrote along with it:
Vince, thank you for being the best father in the world to our Logan. I couldn’t have chosen a better Dad for him. We love you! Happy Father’s Day!
In March of 2016, however, Braxton posted a cryptic message about relationships and also shared a pic of her NOT wearing her wedding ring.
This is what it said:
The following July, after more rumors were circulated around the Internet, Tamar took to social media to post a video of her smiling and singing Mariah Carey’s 1995 ballad “Always Be My Baby” into her husband’s ear.
“After all these years he STILL hates when I sing in his ear #Tamar&Vince,” she wrote along with the footage.
So she tried to put on a positive front at least.
However, in August of last year, TMZ reported that Braxton and Herbert got into a domestic dispute at an Atlanta hotel, during which he reportedly bit her hand.
No arrests were made and no ambulance was called to the scene.
The two were seen walking and holding hands at an airport the following day and did not comment on the report and Braxton said this to paparazzi members who asked about her romance:
“Just because somebody says something does not make it law and I’m not gonna defend my relationship to anybody. Ever. This is a marriage.
“This is not a baby daddy, this not my boyfriend. We don’t live together. This my husband for 13 years so everybody else, have several seats.”
And then there’s this:
News of Braxton and Herbert’s divorce arrives two weeks before the November 9 premiere of the final season of their WE tv reality show Tamar and Vince, which is a spinoff of Braxton Family Values.
It will be interesting to see whether ratings go up or down based on this development.
