Read on to discover more about the Vincent Herbert Bio.
Vincent Herbert Facts
Vincent D. “Vince” Herbert was born on January 27, 1969, in Newark, New Jersey, United States of America. He began his career as a music producer in 1989. AKA Vinnyherb, he founded his own record label known as Streamline Records in 2007. The label is an imprint of big players Interscope Records.
Vince proved his music production prowess by working with A-list artists like Beyonce, Kelly Rowland, and Michelle Williams of Destiny’s Child. Others include Lady Gaga, Aaliyah, Toni Braxton, Hi-Five, Mindless Behavior…. the list is endless. Herbert has played a part in bringing these artists to international stardom, raking in big bucks in the process.
Some of the songs he has written/produced include; Aaliyah’s cover of The Isley Brothers’ song Choosey Lover” for her second studio album “One in a Million”; “No, No, No” (Part I And The Remix) by Destiny’s Child, “I Don’t Want To Do Anything” Remix by Mary J. Blige and K-Ci and more.

Vincent Herbert Parents
Vince no doubt had a rough childhood. Growing up was quite traumatic for the young boy as he lost his mother when he was just 13 years old, a few years later he lost his dad and as if that wasn’t enough, he buried his brother few years after his father died. However, this sad experience turned in his favour as he learned to cater for himself and make ends meet. He grew up quicker than his peers as evident in his first car bought at age 16(paid in full) and not just any car “a 535 BMW.”
He Was Married To Tamar Braxton
Vince married Tamar Braxton on the 27th of November 2008. Thanks to his friendship with “Unbreak My Heart” hitmaker Toni Braxton, from whom Vince was able to meet with her sister Tamar back in 2003. Luckily for Vinnyherb, Tamar had a thing for record producers. She was married to music producer Darrell “Delite” Allamby from 2001 – 2003. 2003, the year she finalized her divorce with Delite was also the year she met with Vince. The duo began dating the same year. They got hitched in 2008 and had their first son, Logan Vincent Herbert on June 6, 2013.
Tamar’s love for record producers was perhaps linked to her efforts to find mainstream success with her music. And Vince proved to have the Midas touch. He teamed up with Epic Records boss L.A. Reid and began working on Tamar’s next album. Entitled “Love & War”, the album was released in 2013 to much critical and commercial success. It proved far more successful than her debut self-titled album “Tamar” which was released in 2000.
Love & War debuted at #1 and #2 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and Billboard 200 charts respectively, selling 114,000 copies in its first week. It produced successful singles like “Love and War”, “The One”, “All the Way Home” and “Hot Sugar”. The album later sold over 500,000 copies to receive gold certification from the RIAA.
Vincent has helped Tamar with her subsequent albums; Christmas album “Winter Loversland” (2013) and “Calling All Lovers” (2015). The second single from “Calling All Lovers” titled “If I Don’t Have You” received a Grammy nomination for Best R&B Performance. Thanks to Vince, Tamar prides herself as a multiple Grammy nominee.
Vince Reality Show
Prior to leading his wife to her breakthrough in 2013, Vince appeared on her family’s reality TV show on WE tv titled Braxton Family Values. The show premiered on April 12, 2011, to favorable reviews. With Vince as co-executive producer, the show rapidly rose to record-breaking numbers becoming WE tv’s flagship show. The popularity of the show contributed to the success of Tamar’s music career. The show has been running for 5 seasons and counting and both Vince and Tamar receive estimated 6-figure paychecks for their role.
The couple earned their own spin-off Tamar & Vince which premiered on September 20, 2012. The show chronicles Tamar’s journey to international fame as well as the couple’s personal life. Like the parent show, Tamar & Vince has been hugely successful running for 5 seasons and counting. The series averages about 1 million American viewers per episode.
Unfortunately, in 2017 just one month before the couples wedding anniversary, Tamar filed for divorce stating irreconcilable differences.
A woman named Paris Herbert accused Vince of fathering her 8-year-old daughter. She claimed the child came to be as a result of a one night stand which Vincent Herbert had with her on the eve of his wedding to Tamar Braxton. She said that on informing him about his illegitimate daughter, he has been paying her for child support to keep things quiet on the issue so the world and most particularly his wife would never find out. She later got tired of it and made it public news probably in a bid to get more from the producer.
Though this claim hasn’t been confirmed publicly by the ace producer Vince, we believe this is a major reason for which Tamar Braxton filed for divorce.
