Tamar Braxton’s marriage to Vince Herbert has had one foot in the grave for a while now, all thanks to some cheating allegations and general Braxton-style drama. Last month she announced she was retiring from music in an attempt to keep her marriage alive. Well, a month later, and TMZ says that she’s done trying to save her marriage to Vince.
Tamar filed for divorce yesterday in Los Angeles after nearly nine years of marriage and fourteen years together. Tamar’s rep tells TMZ that filing for divorce.com was an “extremely difficult decision” for Tamar. Additionally, Tamar’s rep requests privacy for her family (including their 4-year-old son Logan) at this time.
“Collectively, their son Logan and his well being during this very unfortunate process is most important. We ask that everyone respects her privacy during this very difficult time. She appreciates everyone’s love and prayers.”
Respect and privacy for now, sure, but it’s only a matter of time before Tamar goes to WEtv and asks what it would take to retool their reality show, Tamar & Vince, into a special six-part series called Ta-Marching My Ass Away from Vince.
There’s no word on child support or division of assets yet, but I have a feeling it’s going to get very messy in the money department. Just last month, Vince was ordered to fork over more than $3.7 million to Sony. Hopefully, Tamar didn’t mean it when she said she was retiring. Bluebird of Happiness was supposed to be Tamar’s final album, but it can’t be. We need a follow-up album all about the inevitable messiness of this divorce. I want a nasty club banger called “Point Blank Period (Keep Your Hands Out of My Bank Account, You Broke Bitch).”
