For a few weeks Tamar Braxton has been expressing that she’s at odds with someone from her team, but exact details about the feud have been unclear. Well, until now that is. According to Funky Dineva, the problems the “Braxton Family Values” star is experiencing have been centered around alleged her refusal to pay her stylist.
Industry rumors suggest that Tamar and Vince have pretty bad reputations when it comes to paying their employees. After becoming completely fed up with the way the Herberts have been handling things, the stylist reportedly requested a contract and all hell broke loose from there. Of course, this is all speculation, but Tamar did call the unnamed employee out on Instagram for requesting a written contract.
“When we met you had 1 client!!! Now you have ‘contracts’ and a ‘manager’ but you have 5 clients… 4 clients cause I’m sleep,” she wrote in an Instagram post.
It doesn’t stop there though, Dineva is also claiming that several band members have also complained about not being paid for their services. It has also been said that there’s a particular recording studio in Los Angeles that Tamar and Vince are no longer allowed to record at because the reality TV couple still owes money for unpaid studio time.
Tamar hasn’t really commented on the accusations as of yet, but she did tweet out a subliminal message, which seemed to imply that recent reports about her have been inaccurate.
I suppose we’ll have to stay tuned to see how the rest of this drama unfolds.
