Tamar Braxton sets the record straight on her divorce
Tamar Braxton went on The View to claim that her divorce was not a plug for ratings, and that her husband had not impregnated another woman as she claimed in December.
Tamar Braxton appeared on The View and talked about her divorce from husband Vincent Herbert, clearing up rumors and false information that had been going around ever since she posted a rant on Instagram about her husband getting another woman pregnant.
Many claimed that her rant was a publicity stunt to boost ratings for her reality TV series, Tamar & Vince.
Joy Behar asked Tamar about rumors that her split from Vince was "the plotline of a reality show" and that "it wasn't real." Tamar replied, "I wish it wasn't real. I wish I could say that a lot of times it's made up, just so I can hide behind the truth sometimes. But in this situation, I absolutely have no reason to lie about my marriage, and the things that's happening in my marriage for ratings. I think that's disgusting and I would never sell my soul to the Devil like that."
She continued, "I have a regular marriage, and regular marriages like everybody else, things happen. And my marriage, it was to a point where I felt like divorce was the only option that I had left, although we were in extensive counseling."
Tamar said that she had to prioritize the well-being of her son, Logan, saying, "The bigger picture... is that we have a responsibility to my amazing 4-year-old son, and just to raise him in the most comfortable, amazing, loving, secure household that we can. That's why we don't live together."
She also clarified, "I definitely filed for divorce."
Behar then brought up Tamar's meltdown on social media in December, in an Instagram post that she later deleted, which said that her husband had impregnated another woman. Behar then invited Vince, who was in the audience to sit at the table, and asked him frankly, "Is there a bun in the oven of some other woman?"
Vince denied the claims, saying "Absolutely not... and all the other allegations are just not true. I'm just not that kind of person. I love this lady with all my heart, I love my family with all my heart, and I would never stop fighting for my family and trying to make it be great."
Tamar said, "I already believe him because I don't believe at this point he's got nothing to lie about. I'm already gone, I already got a divorce." She added,
"The pregnancy rumor came from my friends... The reason why I filed for divorce was not because of those rumors." However, they agreed that there might be room for reconciliation and added, "We still work together now... and we do work together well."
