Tamar Braxton and her estranged husband Vincent Herbert are opening up about their pending divorce.
While co-hosting “The View” on Friday (Feb. 23), the Bluebird of Happiness songstress revealed why she decided to file for divorce from her longtime partner. “I felt like divorce was the only option that I had left,” said Braxton. “Although we’re in extensive counseling. That is much more needed and it still will always be. The bigger picture of everything is we have a responsibility to my amazing four-year-old son, to raise him in the most comfortable, amazing, loving, secure household that we can. That’s why we don’t live together.”
She went on to say that the rumors she posted about on social media, regarding Herbert impregnating another woman, were inaccurate. “This is what my so-called friends were saying,” she added. “The pregnancy rumor came from my friends.”
Tamar, who had Herbert arrested for spousal assault in December, also claimed that those pregnancy rumors had nothing to do with the divorce.
“Vince and I have been through a lot. The reason I filed for divorce was not because of those rumors,” she added. “I filed for divorce because we worked together, he’s my baby father, we’re together each and every single day, we were attached at the hip, and it just got to be too much.”
Herbert was on hand for the talk and said that he believes they still have a shot at a reconciliation. “I love this lady with all my heart,” he explained. “I love my family with all my heart. I will never stop fighting for my family, and trying to make it be great.”
Tamar, who also opened up about her departure from “The Real” during the interview, said that she believes Herbert’s new promise. “I don’t believe, at this point, he has anything to lie about,” she said. “I’m already gone. I already filed for divorce.”
The divorce and subsequent drama is set to be featured on the upcoming season of “Braxton Family Values,” which premieres next month.
