Tamar Braxton Biography
Tamar is the youngest sister of the Braxton family which includes the most popular of them all- Toni Braxton. Born on March 17, 1977, in Severn, Maryland, Tamar began to sing as a toddler. Together with her older sisters, she sang in a church choir that was pastored by their father. Tamar formed a group named The Braxtons comprising of her four sisters Toni, Tracy, Towanda, and Triana.
The Braxtons signed with Arista Records in 1989 and released their debut single “Good Life” in 1990. The single was commercially unsuccessful reaching #79 on the Billboard charts. The group’s inability to be marketable was blamed on the obvious age difference between the sisters, causing Arista Records to annul their contract with the group. Older sister Toni won a recording deal with LaFace Records while the rest of The Braxtons were hired as backup singers.
In 1996, The Braxtons sans Toni released an album titled So Many Ways, a remixed single of the same name featured rapper Jay Z. After Tamar left the group to sign with DreamWorks records in 1998, the other sisters went their separate ways.
“Ridiculous” was supposed to be Tamar’s debut solo album but the failure of the singles to gain airplay saw it being cancelled, a self-entitled album “Tamar” would go on to become her debut solo album but its commercial failure caused DreamWorks to drop her off the label. Tamar returned to working with her sister Toni who had now gained worldwide recognition, she co-wrote and sang background vocals for five of Toni’s album and even appeared in some videos.

Tamar signed with Universal records in 2010 after her first single under the label was unsuccessful, she was dropped. The Braxtons reunited in 2010 when WE TV signed them and their mother for a reality TV series titled Braxton Family Values. The show quickly became the #1 rated show on the network leading the network to order more episodes and seasons. Since its premiere in 2011, the series has aired 4 seasons.
Despite the success of the reality TV show, Tamar didn’t give up on her music and her determination finally paid off. She signed with Epic records in 2013 and released her second solo album “Love and War”, the lead single and title track was released in 2012 and topped the US iTunes charts, subsequent singles performed fairly on the charts while the album itself was a commercial success in the US, it sold 144,000 copies debuting at #2 on The Billboard 200.

Tamar Baxon Husband And Son: Why She Filed For Divorce
Like her music career, Tamar’s love story has been unstable. She has been married twice. Her first marriage was with Darrell “Delite” Allamby, a Producer and songwriter who worked on her 2000 debut on the album tracks “Money Can’t Buy Me Love” and “Once Again.” The two got married in 2001 but their marriage began to fall apart barely two years after their marriage. On February 7, 2003, the officially signed their divorce papers as Tarmar claimed that her relationship with Allamby was abusive.
The same year, shortly after her ” bitter marriage with Allamby, Tamar met Vincent Herbert, a songwriter, record producer and founder of Streamline Records. Tarmar met Vincent through her sister and they dated for about five years before finally settling to tie the knot on November 27, 2008. On June 6, 2013, about five years after their marriage the couple who at the time seemed to be doing great together, were blessed with a son who they named Logan Vincent Herbert.
Tamar, alongside her husband Vincent Herbert, stars in a spin-off of the family’s reality show titled “Tamar & Vince”. All seemed well with the two until October 2017, when Braxton filed for divorce from Herbert, citing “irreconcilable differences” and is seeking joint custody of their son.
Following her filling for divorce, further investigation into their marital issues shows that among other outstanding issues, Vincent has been secretive about his business dealings which have landed him into series of financial crisis. Apparently, Vincent knows nothing about how to manage money and Tamer is always forced to clean up his financial mess.
Aside that, the couple seem to have some unresolved issues ranging from Tamar’s failure to socialize and spend quality time with her husband to Vincent’s domestic violence to her- a good example of this was in August 2016 when the Police was invited into their Atlanta hotel after Vincent allegedly bit her hand during an argument.
Though Tamar Braxton is yet to make further comment about their divorce, Vincent seems open for reconciliation and proper dialogue with her. he is also open to marriage counselling to discuss their marriage and other issues relating to their relationship and their son, Logan.
