Yesterday, we posted excerpts from Tamar Braxton’s Ebony.com interview. In the interview, the singer emphatically denied rumors that she bleaches her skin. And still several folks, including some of you on this site, doubted Tamar’s honesty. So today, in response to the doubters, she posted this picture of her skin on Instagram, including a shot of her fingers where you can see her vitiligo up close.

She included this as the caption:

Although I have NOTHING to prove….I have NOTHING to LIE about! #donetalkingaboutthebleachB.S.

Personally, I don’t know why the bleaching rumors ever got so far to begin with. When a person bleaches their skin the tone no longer looks natural. (See Sammy Sosa and Vybyz Kartel.)

What do you think? Should Tamar have released these photos? Do you believer her now?

‘Tamar Has The Same Thing Michael Jackson Had’: Vince Shuts Down Skin Bleaching Rumors

Tamar Braxton is just another name among the laundry list of celebrities who have been accused of  being self-haters and drastically altering their appearance with plastic surgery and skin bleaching. Tamar has of course denied these rumors, but clearly not too many people are buying it. In an exclusive interview with Bossip, both Tamar and Vince open up about these allegations.

“I just want to know what time do I have to do that,” she told the site. “It’s just been crazy. If you really think about it, we’ve been shooting ‘Braxton Family Values’ for two years and then in between that it was ‘Tamar & Vince,’ and now we’re back into production with ‘Braxton Family Values.’ So, ‘When did she change her face?’ I just think I grew up and I don’t look the same that I did when I was 19.”

Vince also felt it necessary to defend his boo boo regarding these allegations.

“It just sounds stupid, you know? I’m sorry that she looks beautiful and people can’t understand it. I tell her not to look at it or read it because it’s just so ignorant. It’s not appropriate. It’s wrong. You can’t satisfy everybody. We know what goes on in our household. I would never be with a vain person like that.”

He also went on to offer an explanation as to why Tamar complexion may seem a bit lighter that it did in prior years.

“Actually Tamar has the same thing that Michael Jackson had.”

Tamar also chimed in on the condition.

“It’s vitiligo, but I don’t really like to talk about it.”

While it certainly has to be difficult to cope with having people constantly point out physical symptoms that come as a result of some form of sickness, people still don’t seem to be buying those vitiligo claims. Tamar could very well be suffering from this disease, but unfortunately this is an excuse that is frequently used by celebs who bleach their skin so many are still just giving her the side eye. Plus they can’t very well expect us to believe she hasn’t had any work done, can they?

What do you think? Is Tamar hiding behind vitiligo claims?
