There's a new article on the website The Grio - an interview with Tamar Braxton's mother Evelyn. And the interview is EXPLOSIVE. Evelyn claims that Vince BEATS Tamar . . . and she suggests that Tamar's sisters tried to "jump" him.
On the nature of their relationship:
“It was definitely a volatile relationship,” Ms. Braxton says during a phone conversation from Atlanta, Georgia. “This has been going on for years.”
The matriarch of the Braxton family says Tamar’s estranged husband, Vincent Herbert, was both physically and emotionally abusive throughout the marriage, something that has long been kept secret—until now.
On Why the abuse never showed up on the show:
“We spoke up about it on the Braxton Family Values but they would not show it. They would show all the other girls and their husbands, but when it came to Vince, they took it out of the show,” she reveals.
On What Vince has to say about the abuse:
Evelyn Braxton, who temporarily lived in the couple’s Los Angeles home, says his response was always that Tamar’s “mouth” was to blame. “It’s always ‘it’s Tamar’s mouth’…it’s always someone else. That does not give you the right to abuse her. Everybody has a mouth. Everyone should have the right to say what they want. Are you trying to beat [her] into submissiveness? No one has the right,” she says.
Tamar's sisters allegedly tried to "jump" Vince after the alleged hotel incident:
Ms. Braxton confirms with theGrio that the reports of the hotel altercation were indeed true. She also revealed that Tamar’s older sisters tried to intervene in the marriage - to no avail. “Her sisters have been trying to fight Vince for a long time but it was always denied,” she says.
