Rumors are swirling that socialite Tamar Braxton and her husband Vince Herbert were involved in a violent argument at the Ritz Carlton in Buckhead.
A witness told blogger Love B. Scott that the screaming match escalated to violence when Vince bit down on Tamar's finger, drawing blood.
The singer bled profusely from her finger, which a witness stated was nearly severed, but she declined medical treatment from medics.
The police were called to the scene but Vince had already fled by the time they arrived.
Bossip.com reports that the cause of the fight was Tamar's business decision to fire Vince as her manager and hire industry executive Gerald Washington, who runs Steve Harvey's entertainment empire.
There are unconfirmed rumors that Tamar and Washington are a romantic item.
Washington was instrumental in securing a TV gig for Tamar with Steve Harvey.
Washington is married to personal finance guru and motivational speaker Patrice C. Washington, also known as the Money Maven on the Steve Harvey Morning Show.
Tamar is no stranger to abusive relationships.
A Braxton insider once revealed that Tamar's husband beats her like she is a runaway slave.
I’m told Tamar accepts the abuse from men (gay and straight) because she’s afraid of being alone.
Rumor has it that Tamar's mom lives with the couple and their son to keep the peace in the house.
There are also persistent rumors about Vince's sexuality.
What real man bites a woman?
Tamar once questioned her husband's sexuality. She recently surprised an insider by asking if her husband was gay.
The insider was momentarily taken aback by her question. He gathered his thoughts and responded honestly: “I don’t know him like that".
The insider cautioned Tamar to have patience; gay men never stay anonymous in Hollywood for long. He will eventually be exposed.
“I can’t wait that long,” Tamar reportedly hissed into the phone. “My ex-husband was gay,” she whispered.
