Tamar Braxton’s Husband, Vince Herbert, Hospitalized in NY

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.

    Pulmonary embolisms doesn’t appear to have anything to do with weight (since Serena is arguably one of the fittest people out there) but for other health reasons he def should get his weight together

  • mrsloveleigh

    Caligirl I didn’t want to be negative but i feel like it has something to do with his weight also

    Hey ya’ll where’s Man?

  • bnatural

    The term Pulmonary Embolism sends shivers up my spine and brings tears to my eyes. I’ve said it before, I had a close friend (like a big sister) unexpectedly pass away from this late last year, it is no joke.

    Prayer’s for him and their family :pray:

  • mrsloveleigh

    Blod clots aren’t caused by weight-i don’t believe-but like most of us it can only help to lose some weight

    Well damn. :lol:

    @ CHA Deuce: I just posted it

  • caligirl

    Umm yes more than likely, it’s because he’s overyweight…

    Your lifestyle can and will have a significant factor in having a blood clot.
    Smoking, BEING OVERWEIGHT….The excess weight increaes the risk of clots.

    My source….Night classes Registred Nurse.

    Misssssss Sandra you wanna do a Medical Minute on that?

    That’s why it’s important to get up and stretch those legs frequently during long flights. It should be airline protocol for flight attendants to remind passengers to move around during long hauls.

    Hmmmmm….we was encouraged to pick on Mr. Rawss; but since its Tamar’s husband its “the man is fighting for his life…”

    Get well soon Vince.

  • http://sandrarose.com Sandra Rose

    Tamar wrote this tweet on her Twitter page on Oct. 23, the same day her husband was admitted into the hospital: “I need the every hour I need the! *sings* (sound good too)! #ilovemybaby” :sad:

  • cute_BIG_gul

    <<<former luker tryna get my weight up….my prayers with Vince n Tamar,…wat does that tweet mean SANDRA?

  • http://sandrarose.com Sandra Rose

    @ cute_BIG_gul: “I need thee every hour” is a gospel song. Then she wrote “#Ilovemybaby,” meaning Vince. That’s what I took her tweet to mean.
