Evelyn Braxton Opens Up About Tamar Braxton’s Abusive Marriage
Evelyn Braxton is done hiding the ugly secrets of Tamar Braxton and Vince Herbert‘s 10-year marriage.
In an exclusive interview with The Grio, the matriarch of the Braxton family detailed years of of alleged physical and emotional abuse her daughter suffered behind closed doors.
It was definitely a volatile relationship. This has been going on for years.
Everybody saw Vince as a knight and shining armor, [but] behind closed doors that’s a horse of another color. I’m tired of [Tamar] being abused and misused.
They say the truth shall set you free. They’ve been trying to hide it for years. And I have the audacity to tell the truth.
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.
Mama Braxton also confirmed the reports about Vince biting Tamar’s finger until it bled at an Atlanta hotel were true.
She went on to say Tamar’s sisters tried to intervene to no avail.
Her sisters have been trying to fight Vince for a long time but it was always denied.
I think too many women are abused, and it’s high time that we stand up and stop this madness.
Do you know how many women are killed each year? I just don’t want Tamar to be a part of that.
If anything happens to Tamar, that’s Logan’s (Tamar and Vince’s son) loss. That’s my loss. That’s her family’s loss. I don’t want that kind of pain.
Enough is enough. I don’t care how much they smile. I don’t care how much they pretend.
For the person who is abused sometimes they do change their mind. Their mind is so wrapped up in the fact that maybe it was my fault, or I can change them, or maybe I didn’t love him right or do the right thing; or maybe my family is too involved and it’s my family that’s separating us. They convince themselves of that because their minds are weak. If they were strong people they would get out of it the first time.
It’s too bad they couldn’t work it out, however, I’m tired of her being abused and misused. And I’m tired of being in the middle of it. It’s harder than what you think.
Sometimes you have to move forward, even when we don’t want to. Life is extremely short and things can happen within the twinkling of an eye. This too shall pass.
There was a report that claimed Tamar Braxton was upset with her mother for revealing the abuse in her marriage, but Evelyn Braxton said she and her daughter have been “talking” and “hugging.”
