The marital drama between Tamar Braxton and her estranged husband Vincent Herbert is starting to play out like an episode of the Young & The Restless. From a secret love child to a Christmas Day arrest to a supposed NYE reconciliation, a lot has gone down in the last 7 days.
Honestly we’re not even sure anymore if this is all a stunt for their reality show because the drama has gotten really messy and really real. In case you’ve missed it, here’s a re-cap.
Post & Delete Instagram Rant
In the wee hours on Friday night December 29 the “My Man” singer took to her Instagram account alleging Vincent had impregnated another women. See Below.
The “Whore” Revealed?
That same night Braxton also insinuated that former Basketball Wives: L.A. star Laura Govan was “the whore” who was pregnant with Vince’s baby. In an exchange in the comment section of her post Tamar says that she was told by Govan’s baby daddy, Gilbert Arenas, that Govan was messing around with Vince.
Christmas Day Arrest
On Christmas Day Herbert was arrested in Los Angeles for spousal assault and taken to jail, where he bailed out after posting $20k. Braxton later clarified that it was not a domestic altercation that led to the arrest but instead booze and jealousy.
“There was no physical interaction between Vince and I on Christmas,” she said. “While I do not appreciate his lack of respect for our family and him allegedly impregnating another woman, I cannot paint him as a vicious abuser that Vince is not.”
Laura Govan Speaks
On Saturday December 30, Govan breaks her silence and reveals she is not and has not ever been involved with Vince.
“First things first, “Vincent is not my type…at all,” she told The ShadeRoom. “I have nothing but respect for Tamar and Vince, but none of this is true. Apparently Tamar had been a little inebriated while she was talking reckless on Instagram. I would never, ever disrespect her in that way, but, understandably, she’s hurt.”
Laura continued, “Gil is just trolling, because he’s upset that I’ve moved on.”
Vincent Herbert Denies Everything
Paparazzi got Herbert Sunday, December 31 out in Beverly Hills and he flat out denied impregnating Govan. He also said rumors that he committed spousal abuse are “not true at all.”
Tamar & Vince Reconcile?
Footage has surfaced showing the singer and the music producer ringing in 2018 together. Reportedly, Vincent was backstage with Tamar as she performed in Atlanta for the Great Xscape Tour. HipHollywood reported it first, Vince is now managing Xscape so it’s not surprising that he would be backstage. But … you can be the judge. See footage below.
Exclusive: Sorry, Folks, Diddy Did NOT Offer H&M Model A Contract
Last week rumors started circulating that Diddy had offered Liam Mango, the young model featured in the H&M ad a Sean John modeling contract. Unfortunately those reports, as sweet as they sound, aren’t true.
Diddy spoke to reporters backstage before a tapping of his new show The Four and clarified what really happened.
“I didn’t actually offer a modeling contract to him I told my people to reach out to him so we could use him in the next shoot that we do,” he explained. “But with that being said, I think that what we’re seeing is just a general insensitivity to how we feel you know. I think that H&M is going to feel the results of that.”
H&M has issued an official apology for featuring Mango on their website in a “Coolest Monkey In The Jungle” hoodie, saying in a statement : “We sincerely apologize for offending people with this image of a printed hooded top. The image has been removed from all online channels and the product will not be for sale in the United States. We believe in diversity and inclusion in all that we do and will be reviewing all our internal policies accordingly to avoid any future issues.”
After photos of the young boy hit the web, folks started speaking out against the retailer calling them racist and insensitive. But one person not feeling that way was Mango’s mother. She posted her thoughts Facebook questioning what all the fuss is about. “I really don’t understand but not coz am choosing not to but because it’s not my way of thinking, sorry.”
She and the boys father Terry Odhiambo have since had a change of heart appearing on ITV on Monday, saying they don’t think that there’s ever an “overreaction when it comes to racism”.
They also said they’ve had to move from their home in Sweden, and haven’t been able to live a normal life since the controversy started.
