Another celebrity couple has joined the ongoing train of Hollywood splits and divorces. In 2017 alone, fan favorites such as Anna Faris and Chris Pratt, and country couple Natalie Maines and Adrian Pasdar, are among those who called it quits.
American singer Tamar Braxton has filed for divorce from her husband of 9 years, according to E! News. Braxton and her soon-to-be ex-husband, Vincent Herbert, also star in a reality show, “Braxton Family Values.”
Their reality show was a big hit with WE TV viewers. Additionally, Braxton gained fame and success with her second album, “Love and War,” and from her appearance as a talk-show host on Fox’s “The Real.”
The couple has a now 4-year-old son, Logan Herbert. In a statement released by one of Braxton’s representatives, it was revealed that their family’s ultimate priority is ensuring Logan’s well-being. Read the full statement below.
"At this time we can confirm Ms. Braxton has made an extremely difficult decision and has filed for divorce from Vincent Herbert," her rep told E! News on Wednesday. "Collectively, their son Logan and his well-being during this extremely unfortunate process is most important. We ask that everyone respects her privacy during this incredibly difficult time. She appreciates everyone's love and prayers."
Prior to the divorce going public, Braxton published a video message on Instagram. In the video, a woman is speaking about being "shipwrecked for Jesus" and following God's calling. It is unclear if it is directly related to the divorce, but the message was posted just hours before the news broke. Watch the powerful video below.
Specific details on why Braxton filed for divorce were not given. However, TMZ reported that the two were involved in a “domestic dispute” during the summer of last year. According to reports, Braxton’s husband bit her during an argument; their marriage has been an ongoing rollercoaster since the incident, stated TMZ.
Actor Ewan McGregor and his wife Eve Mavrakis also announced a few days ago that they’re ending their 22-year marriage. They have been separated for a few months, but McGregor was caught kissing another woman recently, which reporters believe could be the last straw.
