The husband of “Braxton Family Values” star, Tamar Braxton, was hospitalized over the weekend in serious condition, according to a source close to the Braxton camp.
Vince Herbert was admitted to a New York hospital after experiencing breathing difficulties. The source said Herbert was being treated for a blood clot in his lungs.
Last week, Herbert accompanied his wife and her sisters to Atlanta on a promo tour for the show. They visited Spelman College on Wednesday and later attended a dinner/meet & greet at Frank Ski’s Restaurant and Lounge.
“He’ll be alright. He’s in our prayers, He’s a strong guy and he’ll pull through,” said the source, who added that Herbert’s condition has changed since he was hospitalized. The source indicated that Herbert was on a respirator to assist him with his breathing.
Earlier this year, tennis star Serena Williams was also hospitalized with a pulmonary embolism.
Pulmonary embolisms occur when blood clots originate in the leg and travel to the lungs. Usually more than one clot is involved and when that happens it is a medical emergency. Clots that block the main artery to the lungs can cause sudden death. A blood clot that originates in the leg is caused by Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT). You can read more on DVT’s here.
As we told you yesterday, the live Ustream session with Trina and Towanda Braxton will be rescheduled at a later date.
