UPDATE: Vincent Herbert denies being fired by Remy. According to TheYBF.com, he called the Wendy Williams Show on Wednesday and claimed that he hasn’t been axed. He said that he actually has a meeting with the rapper today. No official statement from Remy as of yet.
In December, Tameka “Tiny” Harris announced that as Xscape moved forward with their attempts to release new music and tour (minus Kandi), they had taken on Vincent Herbert as management. Vincent Herbert as in the estranged husband of the singer’s friend, Tamar Braxton.
“We love what he did with Tamar and Lady Gaga and we also knew he understood the business,” she said. “We sat down with him, had some food and just talked, like how most business takes place, he just got our vision and he saw the potential in us.”
They weren’t the only ones to be impressed with Herbert’s managerial work and want him to take them on as clients. Rapper Remy Ma also signed up to work with him late last year, with Herbert taking over for her husband Papoose.
But just a few months later, Remy is already ready to find new management.
According to TMZ, Remy has fired him because he reportedly hasn’t been as focused as he said he would be on her career. Sources told them she supposedly felt he was spending more time trying to salvage his marriage with Braxton, as opposed to making major moves on the rapper’s behalf. “We’re told told he came up short on promises of being a ‘super manager’ for Remy,” TMZ reported.
That included missing basic opportunities to book studio time and schedule performances for her.
Braxton filed for divorce from Herbert in October of 2017, and ever since then, his attention has allegedly been on dealing with that situation. That may be good for him, the possibility of fixing his family that is, but it’s not necessarily good for Remy.
This news is in contrast with the excitement she had in November about Herbert’s abilities.
“Vince is doing a great job,” she said at the time. “Pap looks over everybody’s shoulder.”
