Rough Week? Tamar Braxton Splits From “T’Challa,” Lashes Out At Sisters On Instagram Live Over Lackluster Birthday
Tamar Braxton is back on the prowl. The 42-year-old announced that she is “single” and “ready to mingle” after a surprising split from her Nigerian beau, whom she affectionately referred to as T’Challa:
Braxton would quickly delete the post, and she didn’t elaborate on why she was now, allegedly single. However, she did post a stern warning on her page about trusting people, which some believe could be a hint at what went wrong:
Braxton announced back in September that she had been dating “T’Challa” for three months and was in love.
“I met him at a friend’s birthday party, thank you God, he’s so fine! I can’t take it sometimes. It’s like a whole snack — a Lunchable!” she told Wendy Williams. “He lives in L.A., he’s originally from Nigeria, but he lived here for a while.”
At the time, she told Williams that she would love to settle down and have children with him.
“I would love to have some wonderful, beautiful African children for the Lord.”
Things were definitely getting serious between the two, but now it seems that things have cooled off, for now at least.
Meanwhile, it looks like things are getting super serious between her sister Trina and her boyfriend Von Scales. While celebrating Tamar’s birthday this week (the actual birthday was March 17) with her sisters and her man, Scales popped the question to Trina. A sweet gesture, but definitely the wrong time and place to do it. Tamar had already made clear to her sisters that she was underwhelmed by the birthday dinner they put on for her. In an Instagram Live, she ranted about the one card and pair of sunglasses she was gifted between her four sisters, and the hot air balloon adventure they planned for her, which she wasn’t happy about since she doesn’t like heights. Tamar said that she didn’t appreciate that she
claims she goes out of her way for the birthdays of her sisters, but they didn’t do the same for her this time around. She literally called the dinner some “foul f–ked up bullsh-t”:
After the year that Tamar and her sisters had, from the Braxton Family Values strike that didn’t work out, to the Iyanla sitdown drama and their estrangement for a short time afterward, it’s interesting that Tamar believed that she was owed a big balloon-filled blowout from her siblings. And at 42, expectations about what other people should be doing for your birthday should be kept somewhat low. She should have been grateful for the shades, the card and the hot air balloon idea that she shi–ed on. She’s grown. GROWN. ADULT. WITH A CHILD. At some point, the baby-of-the-family mentality must cease and you need to make your own lavish birthday plans and stop expecting other grown adults with children, lives and bills to stop coddling you.
Another year, same ol’ Tamar.
Anywho, you’ll get to see more of this b-day gone bad in the near future because it looks like BFV cameras were there. But as for more insight into what went wrong between she and her Nigerian beau, we’re not sure. He was just by her side during her karaoke birthday fun last week:
We have a feeling, though, that this is a short-lived split and she’ll be back fawning over “T’Challa” sooner than later.
Aaaaand, we called it:
