Tamar Braxton’s Husband, Vincent, Released from Hospital

According to TMZ.com, Toni Braxton’s brother-in-law, Vincent Herbert, was released from a NY hospital where he was treated for blood clots in his lungs.

Sandrarose.com broke the story that Vincent was rushed to the hospital two weeks ago after experiencing difficulty breathing. It was determined that the entertainment executive had a condition called Pulmonary embolism, or blood clots in the lungs.

Pulmonary embolism is usually fatal and involves a blood clot (thrombus) traveling from the legs and into the lungs (Deep Vein Thrombosis). People at high risk for DVTs are those who live a sedentary lifestyle, sit for long periods of time at cubicle desks or travel long distances on planes.

Vincent is the husband of Toni’s sister, Tamar Braxton, star of “Braxton Family Values”.

Sources close to the family tell TMZ Toni is extremely relieved. But she considers the situation a “wake-up call” to get her own health checked out more regularly, especially because she suffers from lupus.

Vincent will now take blood thinners, such as Plavix or Coumadin to prevent thrombus from forming in his blood. Vincent also had a tiny IVC umbrella device surgically inserted in the large vein (inferior vena cava) leading from his legs to his heart to catch blood clots.

Now that the emergency is over, we hope to reschedule our live Ustream chat with Trina and Towanda Braxton (and maybe Tamar too!)

    I make sure I get up and walk around every few hrs, especially days like today when I have lunch at my desk. It’s already bad enough the I am able to fax from my computer, but if I had to sit for 9 hrs a day, I probably would have blood clots also, circulaton is very important.

  • peanutbuttercup

    This condition is serious business. People have had strokes because of blood clots, but the umbrella is great and Cedars Sinai is one of the best hospitals. Coumadin is great medicine, but it also sucks because you have to monitor your intake of green leafy items and other foods. You have to continuously watch your diet. Plus when you take blood thinners, you are constantly cold. Take care of your health, you can’t fully enjoy anything without it. Life has a way of sneaking up on you, you can’t stay young forever.

    Thank Gawd! He is blessed they caught it in time. Glad he is recovering. I like Vince and Tamar! Nice couple!

  • cute_BIG_gul

    I’m glad VInce is doing good and I wish himand Tamar the best, but Auntie…can we stay 100% please…u can tell by screen name I’m quite FLUFFY myself and I’m not even in them 30’s yet and more and more everyday I see the importance of eating healthy and taking care of your self, exercise, meditation, watever..no one is getting any younger and its Vincent responsibility as a husband, son, and business man to take care of himself to make sure he stays around. Tamar u too. I know everyone wants to make “I told u so”… comments cuz he’s fat, but I AM 2, have been my whole life and COMFORTABLE with myself all the while…TIME is what is finally making me reflect and I contemplate about the changes I need to make Daily to be healthier, n MORE ACTIVE and I don’t HAVE nearly the money, or the access to the things they do, buying vegetables is extravagant in my world lol (the poor eat like shyt), so please please get serious VINCENT if u ever read this…
