It was evident months ago, that Tamar Braxton had moved on from her relationship with Vincent Herbert. But legally the two were still married. That is until today.
According to TMZ, legal documents show that a judge changed the former couple’s marital status, declaring them both single.
Tamar and Vince have yet to finalize the division of their assets—which at least some of the reason the case had been stalled for so long.
Two years ago, in October, Braxton filed for a divorce after nine years of marriage.
The two began dating in 2003, after they were introduced by Tamar’s sister, Toni. They married five-years later and had one child together, Logan Vincent, who’s now six.
This past April, Tamar petitioned the judge to legally change her marital status to single. Now it’s so.
And just in the nick of time too, it appears. As we’ve reported, Vince is in serious financial trouble with a recording company as well as his landlord, owing hundreds of thousands of dollars. Even people who have been associated with Vince professionally, like Remy Ma and Lady Gaga, have been asked to surrender financial records as these entities attempt to collect their share. But it would appear that Tamar was smart enough to keep her finances separate.
Thankfully, the split between the two, while long and drawn out, hasn’t been messy. At the beginning of the year, Tamar revealed that the divorce proved to be beneficial to her and Herbert because it helped them rekindle their friendship.
Braxton said, “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.”
From the looks of things, Tamar has found romance in the arms of someone new. While she kept his name and identity under wraps for a good while, she eventually shared David Adefeso on social media and then later on the family’s reality show, “Braxton Family Values.”
The two have had some bumps in the road since then but for now, things are on the up and up.
