Rumor Has It: Trina Braxton Wants Gabe To Pay Up, Though There Are No Plans For Divorce

December 31, 2012  |  



Man. For the life of me, I cannot put my finger on the nature of Trina and Gabe’s relationship. One minute they seem like they’re really good friends and might be able to make things work; then the next, oral transactions are being exchanged, tracking devices are being installed on phones and separation papers are being drawn up.

So just to be sure we’re all on the same page, as of now Trina and Gabe are officially…legally(?) separated.

Now, according to TMZ, Trina is asking that a judge require Gabe to pay her an “unspecified amount of money.”  This raises a few questions.

1.) Isn’t alimony for people who are already divorced?

2.) Is Gabe really making that much more money than her that she would need to dig in his pockets?

3.) Money for what? For doing everything short of having full on intercourse with other women?

I’m just very confused. And as if the money request weren’t enough to make you tilt your head sideways, Trina says that there are no plans for the two to divorce and she’s hoping they’ll be able to work it out.

Umm Trina, baby how are you going to work on a marriage when you’re taking your husband to court, trying to get paid? Something ain’t right.

And on another note, has anyone else noticed that the Braxton sisters are seemingly content to be separated forever instead of just getting a divorce? Toni has been separated from her husband for years, Towanda was discussing the option when she and Andre were having their problems and now Trina. Now, I believe in the sanctity of marriage too; but what’s the point of remaining in a marriage you have no intention of working on it as you opt to live the single life, going on dates and what not. It seems like too many balls to juggle…pun intended.

What do you think, is Trina entitled from some money from Gabe, or should she be focusing her energies elsewhere?

    This ppl are a disgrace to all human nature. Who swears and calls there husband names and air those on national tv. Gabe needs to get nd someone who will appreciate him more. It just shows what the world is coming

  • pebblebeach

    Trina get a darn job…She is deserving of absolutely nothing from him?

  • I don’t know a thing about Trina or Gabe, but if you legally separate from your spouse you can ask the court to order spousal maintenance. But that’s usually an interim arrangement pending the final divorce decree.

    Yikes, so I guess that vow renewal in St. Lucia hadn’t really held up well. I’m all for people really working on their marriages through hard times but honestly I think there is a point where you can throw in the towel. From her own description on the show practically their entire marriage has been difficult. That’s a shame.

      They need better help than Dr. Sherry. Can we all touch and agree that Dr. Sherry don’t do a durn thing for these people? Her presence on the show makes a mockery of the counseling process.

      • pickneychile

        Yes Dr. Sherry is so wack! She ain’t doin a dang thang.

  • Miss_Understood

    smh…I would say something about the correlation between her online degree and this story but that would be mean…

  • kierah

    Trina is too smart for this foolishness. By all accounts on the show, Gabe was definitely paying the bills in her household. Before they had even reconciled, Gabe put up money for her video. Are you in or out of this marriage? With ish like this, no wonder Gabe kicks it with chicks on the internet. His real life wife is a mess to deal with.

    • jade nicole

      I agree with everything except she is too smart for this foolishiness. Trina thought her song was going to generate some revenue and now the little money she was making on the show is almost gone she needs Gabe again. Why would she divorce a man who raised and takes care of her two sons.

      • Kaori

        Even if she divorced him, Gabe still could take care of her sons. HOLD UP, WAIT A MINUTE BEFORE YOU ARE LIKE “WTF IS SHE SAYING!” It is my understanding, or at least I thought I heard him say or imply that even if him and Trina weren’t together he would still like to be in her son’s lives.

  • realadulttalk

    I like Trina (although I find her a little ditzy) but I’m at a loss here–what in the name of all things sane goes on in that marriage??? Do either of them really even want to be with the other one??? Sure doesn’t seem like it.

  • Kaori

    I don’t care, but Trina is my favorite Braxton sister.

  • Kells

    Man, if this is what marriage is keep it.. These married folks make me want to remain single and carefree for the rest of me life

    • ieshapatterson

      Lol this is THEIR marriage,not the overall term for it.besides,trina already said that they had problems before they got married.she thought they would change afterwards.marriage isn’t something to take lightly.if your not serious about,then of course you’ll have problem.

      • Ummm…

        what kind of person would give this a thumbs down? O_o

        • ieshapatterson

          Somebody who doesn’t like the truth.

          • Hey

            maybe it was Trina.

    • Pivyque

      If that’s what you feel is best for you, do it! I’m happy in my marriage, but there are some people (like Trina) that don’t seem to know what they want to do.
