Hitherto, the most popular Braxton in the entertainment industry was the amazing songbird Toni Braxton but in recent years, her younger sister Tamar Braxton has also come to prove her relevance in the entertainment world so much so that she has become something of tabloid fodder. Tamar successfully revived her failed music career thanks majorly to her family’s reality TV show Braxton Family Values which became a huge hit on WE tv. She also dabbled in TV hosting and would nab two Emmy nods for her host duty on FOX’s daytime talk show, The Real.
In addition to music and TV hosting, Tamar Braxton has also dabbled in acting making occasional guest appearances in TV series and scoring her movie debut in Jean-Claude La Marre’s Gangland. With over 3 million followers on her gram page, fans are ever eager to keep up with the Braxton sister.
Tamar Braxton Net Worth
Tamar Braxton has no doubt come a long way from her days as part of the short-lived R n B singing group, The Braxtons which was made up of herself and her sisters. Though Toni would go on to gain immediate success after the group split up, Tamar struggled to get her own solo career off the ground. However, she managed to remain visible sticking by her superstar sister Toni. Tamar co-wrote a couple of songs on her sister’s albums and appeared in some of her music videos too.
While working with Toni, Tamar tried her hands on a couple of solo works all of which failed, however, 2010 began a revolution for Tamar as well as her sisters. It was the year when their family reality TV show which also features their mom, Evelyn, debuted on WEtv to impressive ratings.
The series ratings have fared well over the years airing at least 6 seasons. Tamaris no doubt the highest benefactor (aka breakout star) of the show’s success as her next attempt at a solo music career was an immediate success. Tamar’s album, Love and War released in 2013 via Epic records was a huge commercial hit. Her subsequent studio albums, Calling All Lovers, and Bluebird of Happiness were equally successful establishing Tamar as the successful solo music act she’d always wanted to be.
The media queen then upped her TV earnings by scoring her own spinoff, Tamar and Vince which followed her life with her then-husband, Vincent Herbert. Earnings from her music, reality TV show, TV gigs as well as her ready-to-wear clothing and shoe line, Tamar Collection have contributed to giving Tamar Braxton a net worth of $7 million.
Boyfriend, Husband, Divorce Rumors
Tamar Braxton’s romantic life is one aspect of her life that has drawn huge media attention. Her most known relationship with the media was with record executive, Vincent Herbert. The pair met in 2003 after being introduced to each other by the oldest Braxton sister Toni.
They began a romantic relationship shortly afterward and were married on the 27th of November 2008, after about 5 years of dating. Vince became her manager and signed her to his Streamline Records, an imprint of Interscope Records.
Their marriage, as well as Tamar’s journey to musical success, was documented on their spin-off show Tamar & Vince which aired for 5 seasons ending in December 2017 due to their imminent divorce.
Rumors about their divorce began to swirl due to events that unfolded on their show (including a domestic violence allegation against Vince) and in October 2017, Tamar filed for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences. Tamar’s mom Evelyn alleged that Vince had abused Tamar for the most part of their tumultuous union. There was also an allegation that Vince had impregnated another woman, which he denied.
Shortly before the divorce, Tamar had retired from her music career to focus on her marriage but apparently, it wasn’t enough. At the time, she had revealed that her fourth studio album, Bluebird of Happiness could be her last record, though she intends to continue writing for other artists. Tamar had a son with Vince named Logan Vincent Herbert on June 6, 2013.
Before Vince came into Tamar’s life she was previously married to music producer Darrell “Delite” Allamby, for two years from 2001 to 2003. He was her first husband.
In September 2018 on The Wendy Williams Show, Tamar revealed that she had a boyfriend whom she had been dating for three months. He is an LA-based Harvard alum with Nigerian roots.
