In a new interview, Tamar Braxton revealed that while she may be head over heels for her new boyfriend, whom she affectionately refers to as T’Challa, when it comes to her estranged husband Vince Herbert, she still has love for him — as a friend.

Make that a good friend. According to The Jasmine Brand, Braxton said that despite the pretty rough end to their marriage, which we saw deteriorate on their WE tv series Tamar & Vince, and their divorce not being finalized as of yet, they’ve worked their way to having a healthy friendship. The 41-year-old singer and recent Big Brother winner is grateful for that.

“Vince and I don’t work together anymore but I’m glad I got my friend back. Our relationship is great,” she said. “Obviously, I never thought I’d be in this situation but I think it’s for the best. I think there’s hope that he’s happy and definitely hope for my own happiness because us together and working together was completely toxic. Our marriage had absolutely no hope after a few years of working together, the way we was working together.”

This newfound friendship is likely why Braxton jumped to Herbert’s defense when someone tried to fat shame him while simultaneously trying to laud the star’s new man.

When a fan told her, “When you go from fAt to FIT..the experience is sooo different and electrifying,” Braxton wasn’t here for it.

“Don’t do that boo!” she said. “We just didn’t work out. Don’t shame that man like that please.”

We know that she is looking to make it official soon with her boyfriend, but you know we have a slideshow for everything. Check out photos of Braxton and Herbert during happier times, way before he was put in the friend zone.
