Tamar Braxton is opening up about a marriage ruined by infidelity on her new single “My Man” —  but it’s not her own. Instead she’s telling the story of another woman, her mother Evelyn Braxton, who divorced her father after learning he had an affair with another woman.

“The song came about because I felt it was necessary to say,” explained Braxton. “It was just everything that was going on with my family at the time, it just made sense to speak about it.”

Fans saw Tamar share the track with her mother on their reality show, Braxton Family Values. But did she share it with her father?

“Listen, I was I not going to put out this record without letting my parents hear it first,” she explained. “So I played it for my dad and his reaction was a little different. He was actually a little flattered. He was like, ‘You wrote a song about me?’ without listening, listening to the lyrics. I’m sure now he’s probably thinking differently.”

And one might wonder how Braxton is still able to have such a great relationship with her dad despite his affair, but she says it’s pretty simple.

“You have to realize it is not your relationship,” she shared. “And it doesn’t have anything to do with you. It’s not your business. Although you are the product of the relationship, it’s not your relationship.”

Audiences will see how the other Braxton sisters – Trina, Towanda, Toni and Tracey – deal with their father and his new wife this season on Braxton Family Values when they take a epic vacation to Puerto Vallarta.

Watch: Halle Berry Issues Whiskey Challenge During ‘Kingsman’ Interview

Halle Berry proved she could hang with the fellas when she downed a glass of whiskey at Comic Con alongside her Kingsman: The Golden Circle co-stars. But don’t expect her to do that again.

“No more, no more,” she said after hilariously bolting from the room when we asked her if she’d drink another glass. “I will never [do it again], and no one lets me live down the fact that I did it either.”

According to Berry she was ill for three days after, but that didn’t stop her and Pedro Pascal from daring me to throw back a glass right before our interview.

Not one to turn down a challenge, I did it, and received a round of applause and high fives before preceding to discuss the duo’s roles and why they decided to join the cast of Kingsman.

“Matthew Vaughn’s version of these movies always interested me” explained Berry who is no stranger to spy flicks after starring in the James Bond film Die Another Day. “I was apart of the Bond series and I feel like this is similar but it’s also for the new generation.”

She continued, “Some of the elements are the same but I call it spy thriller 2.0, he takes it to the next level that no one else does right now.”

In the film Berry, Pascal, Jeff Bridges and Channing Tatum play members of the Statesmen – a U.S. Spy agency operating out of a Kentucky Bourbon distillery. Pascal told us he gained a newfound appreciation for men in suits, but still prefers his jeans.

“I play agent whiskey. I’m a southern gentlemen so I’m a little more buttoned up … I’m like the stateside version of those square pegs from across the pond,” he joked.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle hits theaters September 22.
