Tamar Braxton’s husband Vincent Herbert has lost a $3.7 million lawsuit to Sony.
The legal issue dates back to 2013 when the music company sued Herbert, who is a well-known music executive, over an advance, TMZ reported Thursday. Sony gave Herbert money so he could go find new artists (in the past he discovered major singers like Lady Gaga). The agreement also included a clause that ordered payments from Interscope Records.
Things went left when Sony found out that Herbert was taking the money from Interscope back in October 2015. This prevented Sony from recovering the advance.
Herbert never responded to the lawsuit so the judge presiding ruled a default judgement, ordering Herbert to pay $3, 738, 515.93 to Sony.
Interestingly enough, the news comes just after Braxton revealed she was retiring from music to protect her marriage.
“There are a lot of things that I want to do, and a lot of things that are in the works, “she said during an interview with Entertainment Tonight. “There’s a lot of things that are going on in my relationship and me being close to this music industry, and whatever I can do to eliminate all of the stress and problems off of my relationship, I would rather do that.”
She added, “My husband and I work very close together and it’s really hard, you know? Not only do we work together, he is my baby daddy, and, you know, we’ve been together forever. He’s my best friend. It’s a lot of things to discuss and argue about.”
