Black love is in the air! And if you couldn’t get enough of Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union on the cover of Essence, now you can check out Tamar Braxton and her man Vince Herbert on the cover of Jet, commenting on their much talked about relationship together.
When asked about how the relationship of the reality star Braxton sister and wife and baller manager of both Toni Braxton and Lady Gaga work, Herbert pushes the fact that aside from just being a married couple, the two are great friends, which puts their relationship on another level:
“We have fun, which is what a relationship is all about. Tamar is the greatest. Like, we’d just drive to Disneyland, then go to the movies and fall asleep. Because we are friends and you can’t stress that enough in a relationship. We have our arguments and disagreements, but that’s life.”
And when asked about her attitude, Tamar made it clear that how she talks to her girlfriends, or her sisters for that matter, is not how she comes at her husband, so the attitude stays on-camera. However, when it comes to hitting the studio to record her upcoming album, which she is making through the Interscope and her husband’s label, if she doesn’t stick to her schedule, then the “Sasha Fierce” in her will bring that famed attitude out!
“I have to do this,” she says. “I wake up in the morning and want to go to the studio, because if I don’t go, ‘her’ is going to be upset,” she says, referencing her unnamed alter ego in the third person. “I don’t want to put it in a category because when you do that you limit yourself,” she says. “It’s just going to be hot music. Great songs that appeal to everybody.”
Lastly, and most importantly for those wondering, when it comes to money and if that is the center of their relationship and reason they’re together, both vehemently deny accusations that he’s buying her love and that she’s a gold digger who won’t mess with a broke…you know:
“I love my wife. This girl is so far from being a gold digger. I wouldn’t be with someone like that for nine years,” he says. And Tamar is quick to tag in: “When I met Vince I had my own house. I had my own car. I was independent.”
Get it right! If you want to hear more, including more on her music career, their love and thoughts on the reality TV curse for star marriages, keep an eye out for the new issue of Jet.
