Just a couple weeks ago, we learned that Tamar Braxton filed for divorce from Vince Herbert after being married for almost nine years.
TMZ broke the news. The outlet reported: "The couple had a domestic dispute in August, 2016 in an Atlanta hotel. Police were called after he allegedly bit her hand during the argument... Although they stayed together after that ... sources connected to the couple tell TMZ it's been a rollercoaster relationship, and Tamar recently moved out of the family home."
Moreover, just a few hours before this news surfaced, Braxton posted a cryptic message on social media about letting go. We presumed that it most likely had to do with separating from Herbert. Now, Braxton has officially spoken out about her shocking divorce filing. The singer/songwriter was an open book on her Instagram.
“I told myself I would do whatever it took to keep my family together, to see a smile on someone who has seen us smile on their face hoping we could offer them hope, faith, love & dignity that I️ once possessed,” Braxton said in an IG post. “But the truth is all of those things are NOT within the marriage of Tamar & Vince …at least not anymore.”
The star continued: “Sometimes we stay ‘married’ for face value or to say ‘we did it’ but the truth is… it couldn’t be more broken & further apart than we are NOW. I️ decided I didn’t want to be married for the sake of saying so. I wanted to have a relationship. Someone to share my/our dreams, our successes, our failures, our past, present & future with & not finding out s**t online...some of us 🙋🏽have been living a LIE!"
Braxton went on: "And sometimes when things R shared, what’s NOT being surfaced is that he has one or several girlfriends, or she’s never home, or he’s very general when he speaks, or 'this doesn’t sound like him'🤔 or he’s so busy lately!!"
