Tamar Braxton might have been quiet about her divorce at first but now she’s letting it all out on social media. And it’s safe to say the Grammy-nominated singer and reality star did not hold back for her millions of fans and followers.
Braxton took to Instagram just hours ago to share her side of the story. This comes a couple of weeks after she filed for divorce from her husband Vincent Herbert.
She started by setting the record straight that her move was not a publicity stunt.
“Thank God this is HIS purpose.. yes I just dropped #bluebirdofhappiness & Tamar & Vince is coming back on Thursday but on GOD this has NOTHING to do with ME or a JOB!!” She went on to share her “truth” that fans believed she’s changed for the worse. But Braxton also made it clear she went to great lengths to keep her family as one unit “hoping we could offer [someone] hope, faith, Love & dignity that I once possessed.”
Still, when it came to what was really happening behind closed doors, Braxton explained that “all of those things are NOT within the marriage of Tamar & Vince… at least not anymore.”
She admitted that they only stayed together to present a picture of a happy family to the public or just for the simple fact that they could say they had a seemingly successful marriage.
“But the truth is... it couldn’t be more broken & further apart than we are NOW!..even on an anniversary!”
Braxton, who would have been celebrating her ninth wedding anniversary with Herbert on Nov. 27, added that while she “suffered” some things during her marriage, she wouldn’t make excuses for why she decided to try to stay and work things out for a period of time.
She went on to spill lots of details about their marriage that the public didn’t see.
“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…Is it ok that he checks up on u when his phone(s) R stuck to him like glue? Is it ok that his friends are HIS friends but my friends are ‘our’ friends? Or, we fight but that’s ‘passion…’”
She added that Herbert once told her to get out of their home but pointed out that she had a stake in the house too considering her success. She added that she’s not kicking out Herbert, but wanted to share what made her decide to be the one to leave.
