With fans still reeling over news that Tamar Braxton and Vince Herbert are headed for a divorce, we may now have an answer to the question on everyone’s minds:


What happened that led to the demise of this nine-year long marriage?

According to TMZ, the real problems started, ironically, after Braxton was fired from The Real.

As previously reported, the singer was let go from this The View wannabe because she was "stabbed in the back."

That’s what Braxton actually wrote on Twitter:

I love u all but I have been stabbed in the back by someone I stupidly trusted (not my man or my sisters). I am not about to be tried and tested to snitch and it’s not in good taste to tell you who…

But as #tamartians you are very smart and can figure things out on your own.

So, no, tension did not build up between Tamar and Vince because the latter wronged her in some way when it came to her role on The Real.

However, Braxton allegedly fell into a deep depression after she lost this job, sources claim to TMZ.

As has also been reported in the past, Braxton and Herbert had their issues over the years, with there even being talk last August of a domestic dispute between the couple.

So the relationship wasn’t exactly on firm ground when Braxton got fired.

Insiders claim she actually moved out of the home she had been sharing with her husband three months ago because she was in need of a break and thought maybe the separation would actually save the marriage.

Alas, it failed to do so.

As for why Braxton and Herbert having been acting so lovey dovey despite their faltering marriage?

They’ve simply been trying to promote the upcoming season of their reality show.

That’s right, a new season of Tamar & Vince premieres on November 9 on WEtv.

Should be pretty interesting, huh?

TMZ concludes that Braxton has moved into a high-rise apartment building in Beverly Hills that rents for about $15,000 per month.

It has an indoor 75-foot lap pool… an outdoor pool… five gyms… a spa… a restaurant with a free bar… and a screening room.

She may be lacking for love these days, but not for money, apparently.

Howard has also been serving as Braxton’s manager for years and it’s unclear how this divorce will affect the pair’s working relationship.
