Tamar Braxton and Vince Herbert

Reality TV star and R&B singer Tamar Braxton is finally unloading her and husband Vincent Herbert‘s high maintenance Calabasas, Calif. mansion.

Page Six notes that the couple listed their luxurious Mediterranean style manse for a whopping $15 million.

Calabasas mansion

Tamar and Vince purchased the 13,716-square-foot, 7 bedroom house for $10.5 million in 2013.

The reasons for the sale are most likely financial. Tamar and Vince have been burdened with massive debt for years. A judge recently ordered the portly music executive to pay Sony more than $3.7 million to settle a lawsuit over an advance that the record company loaned him.

Calabasas mansion

Additionally, public records shows Tamar and Vince have fallen behind on their mortgage numerous times over the years. Their mortgage lender filed (and retracted) multiple notices of default threatening to take the house.

Then there are the rumors that Tamar cheated on Vince with a television executive linked to TV mogul Steve Harvey, who promised Tamar her own TV talk show which never materialized.

Calabasas mansion

The well-appointed home boasts 9 full baths and 2 half baths, a man cave with authentic barber chair, a hair salon, stone-paved loggia overlooking the Olympic sized pool with canvas shade awnings and a dining table that easily seats 24, a home theater, recording studio, a mirror-walled gym and a subterranean (underground) parking garage that can accommodate over a dozen cars.

Neighbors in the exclusive, guard-gated Estates at The Oaks enclave include Kourtney Kardashian, Khloé Kardashian, Michael Jackson’s mother Katherine Jackson, Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker, and TV therapist Dr. Phil‘s son Jay MGraw.

  • Precious Henry

    Nice overpriced house….. That’s all I got.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    That house looks more like a museum than a home and it seems too old for them.

  • tintin

    Im loving the underground parking lot.

  • Look@m3

    Dang Tamar!!!! I felt like I was living in this house with you. I don’t want to sell!!!!

    I mean I think I can afford to pay the cable bill..

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    i am always curious, why this family of 3 needed so much space. I’m also curious as to is every room furnished? Does your staff have to dust everyday? It looks cold. What is the heat bill like for this joint?

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    They need to hire P/imp Mom Kardashian.

  • Look@m3

    Girl, that heat bill probably equates to all of my bills in 1 month. But I think most celebrities do this but I never understood it either so I figured it just come with being a celeb. Toni did it, Mariah Carey prior to them twins I remember her home on MTV cribs and thinking the same thing……J Los house…..

  • Rayne

    My home would be the size of the guest house. That’s a whole lotta windows to clean.

  • EMILY POST

    The floor in the kitchen looks amazing… At least they are going to get more for the house than they paid…

  • Dowoop

    Shit when i bought my house, i furnished one room at a time when i had the money to and dont me started on how i walked around in sweatsuits so i could put off turning on my heat.

  • Dowoop

    Lol, i couldnt even afford the cable. I cancelled my cable and got me an Android box with Live TV for $15/month.

  • Look@m3

    Whats an android box? The same thing as the Fire Stick? I got the firestick thinking I could get rid of my cable but then every time I tried to watch certain shows, they be like you don’t have an active account. FUQQQQ. I want to break up with Xfinity!

  • Dowoop

    It streams live tv using your internet..Not sure what firestick is but with my box, i have a tv guide and more channels then when i paid for cable. All the PPV channels and sports channels are there to plus Video on Demand so i can watch movies that are still in theatres. You have to wait for a good quality version for sum but i would never go back to cable. I just pay the little extra for unlimited internet. Saving myself over $200 a month.

  • Keepin’IT100

    That’s just ridiculous

  • Nel

    That’s ridiculous.. that’s too big of a house for Two or 3 ppl.. what a waste.

  • Look@m3

    It sounds like its the same type of devices as the Amazon Fire stick but did you have to get this android box broken? With the firestick you have to get someone to break it in order to get the free movies and stuff and you have to wait as well for clear versions to get uploaded too. I just never heard of this one in particular. Please let me know if you have to get it broken before you are able to gain access to the options of in theatre movies, etc.

  • Noirluv45

    I LOVE the kitchen (one of my favorite rooms in a house), but that’s it. The rest is too gaudy for my taste.

  • Noirluv45

    To me, it looks like a hotel.

  • Quitedeliteful

    what a big what a big beautiful home! So sad that they have to unload it. I think celebrities buy these Mansions because it lowers their taxes. They’ve got to spend their money on something. It might as well be real estate…

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    It’s a nice house. Too big, but nice.

  • Quitedeliteful

    ???

  • WutizaGRANNY!

    LIVE WITHIN YOUR MEANS

  • NeverSurprised

    No, they are ASKING for more than they paid. Who knows what they will actually get. Also, they likely pumped another $2 mil or more into it on improvements, so that brings their investment up to about $12. Plus you calculate the amount of mortgage interest they’ve paid over the last 4 years and IF they”re able to get their asking price, they may be looking at maybe $1.5 to 2mil in profit. MAYBE. But it is certainly a beautiful home, so they may indeed be able to do a quick sale since it is CA.

  • Mia Said so

    I agree 100%

  • Quitedeliteful

    I got one of those boxes – cost me 41 bucks from Wal-Mart! I don’t care if I watch shows a day or so later as long I watch them. Best investment I’ve made all year!

  • JV

    I really like the interior. I thought the cowhide chairs in the barbershop room was a nice touch. The wood floors look really great.

  • Justlooknout

    Good Morning Roses, Thorns and Naysayers – Who to say they aren’t upgrading? Or moving back to the Rich and Famous Atlanta, to be with her mother who is not getting younger.

    Have a good day and stay positive.

  • MythCalledLove

    I tell these young athletes I work with to live as if you didn’t hv a multi million dollar contract. Quit renting and if you buy mom a home make sure that the utilities and upkeep are affordable. You buy her a home and you are cut or injured then what? You don’t hv to take care of everyone. If you do make sure they know this is it better make it work. And don’t let any money go out unless you approve it. That house was waaay to big for them in my opinion. I can see Tamar now ” Uhmm what?! Where the coins going? Like seriously her upkeep is essential and she has to be poppin” I can’t be out here looking crazy. She is me and I know her and she needs money. Ya know?! *smack her mouth* o. k….

  • MythCalledLove

    Wasn’t the mom living there?

  • MythCalledLove

    Maybe the furniture came with it? If not I bet the interior decorator didn’t come cheap. As much as I don’t like the succubus women (Khardashian). I do like their interior decorator

  • Dowoop

    I didnt have to get it broken to watch the free movies but for the live tv you do have to find someone who can set it up for you. I get mines done over the phone and e-transfer the money once i see its working. Some people will give you like an hr free trial when you set it up so you can decide if you want live tv or not. If you dont go with live tv, you can always search for the shows you want to watch and stream it.

  • Dowoop

    Yup! Cable TV will never see a dime from me again!

    closed up in my bedroom with a space heater, i hardly ever turned the heat on. sigh. that was my single days though.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I read somewhere that he had to pay Sony because he didn’t show up to court. Tf? I guess if you know that you are going to lose, why waste money on attorney? But, at least they could have possibly negotiated a lower settlement amount.

  • JoJoDancer

    This is why folks end up broke. Yes, she has money. But $15 million dollar house money? The music industry $$ is weak. You can download a whole album for $2 on some sites; and free on others. And maintaining a house like that is 10’s of thousand a MONTH. Yes, spoil yourself, but not into the poor house.

  • MythCalledLove

    I think it’s the image thing the glamour etc… Like if they lived in anything smaller they would get laughed at. But I love lofts and hv always lived in one. I would love to buy a loft that was once an old building.

  • Decked Out

    May I say, Upgrading doesn’t necessarily mean “Monetary” it could me Understanding your “Net Worth” is not about Materialism. I hope they are coming together for the sake of Marriage and raising another human being.

  • MISSMEWITDATBULL

    They don’t hear you, though!!!!

  • hottlanta

    I remember when they got this house Vince was showing it off to their friends and he got outta breath an had to go to bed. One of their friends said this house is toooo big. She wasn’t saying it out of jealousy she was saying it out of ridiculous.

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    im so afraid of space heaters, though i use one in my office. They make me nervous in the house.

  • ~~eb

    I never understood why they moved from the previous manse they had, it was gorgeous.

  • Yoni7

    Nice house. I hope they get what they’re asking for it. I love some of the pieces they have in there. Real nice. #thumbsup

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    im the exact opposite, I hate air conditioning, i barely use one in the summer. I like a fan occasionally. But in the winter, i like heat, i love my fireplace and i love to be toasty

  • KcoolMuziq

    What did they do with ALL that money Sony advanced them? Smh
    Now I see why Tamar is exited Epic Records.

    I have DirectTV now.. 30 a month for a decent amount of live TV/cable channels. I bought the flat panel antenna so I get 40 channels of broadcast TV. I have a jailbroken firestick but it can be unreliable. Plus with the App I can watch live tv on my phone at work… Nothing like my midday living single and fresh prince of bel air 🙂

    Beautiful house and why are people happy for other people’s failures? A lot of people deal with this everyday rich or not.

    Okay, you “Got Me”. I was in a certain “Mood” this morning. Just felt like commenting. Same to you – Enjoy to the fullest.

  • Decked Out

    Why have ROOMS and SPACE you can’t Occupy on any given day. How about being “Cozy and Together” Time passes so FAST. STUFF does not make the HEART grow fonder after REAL TRIALS and TRIBULATIONS. My thoughts.

  • Ms.Vanilla

    Too much for my tastes. I prefer a cozy medium sized wooden cabin by the lake. Fishing, streams, and apple trees for company.

  • Nonya Bizness

    It’s amazing how much stuff some of us have that we don’t use. I was packing my house up to move, then changed my mind, but didn’t unpack all the kick knacks and stuff. I feel less crowded in my house now. I gave away furniture and don’t plan on replacing it. Every day I look around for more things to get rid of. The more room I have, the more I clutter it up. I’ll never be a minimalist, but right now I have hoarder tendencies, so I’m looking for a happy medium lol.

  • 100milesperhour

    They moved at least twice on the show, each house bigger than the last. Seemed like Vince was always trying to satisfy Tamar’s gluttony.

  • Torae

    When my husband and I purchased our first home it was 3500sq feet and I was pregnant. People were asking us why do y’all need such a big house it’s only three people? Because we want to was the answer. We furnished it one room at a time. If I was rich I don’t think I need a 15000 sq foot home, but that’s their choice…outside the celebrity world people downsize everyday because of the costs to maintain or they upgrade because they want more…it happens.

    yeah they do. Gates house has 100% the highest most expensive and latest high tech items that any human being can get their hands on in 2017 and beyond!!! his home is not built anything like their home but it is a more toned down mansion of some sort. his money goes more towards using his private planes and buying expensive fuel and paying for pilots to fly it also.

    but hey he has so much money to live an awesome life for him and his family but what is even better is he has more that he gives away. so beautiful. this is a man with so much money and such a big heart that he stays up trying to figure out where he can give more away to help mankind. I think their home is on the market for Vince to pay that court judgement maybe.

  • Ashy Alicia

    It’s not lies , I’m no financial advisor by any means , I just wouldn’t be flashy and extravagant unless I can really ‘” own ” it .

  • MSGREENMINUSTHEENVY

    Over the top home, a waste of funds, simpler is always better. I want to have a nice sized home that i can actually clean each room myself. Even when I AM wealthy, I won’t OD. Don’t make sense. I plan to live frugally with money in the bank. Good luck with selling Tamar and Vince.

  • We Can Do This

    Maybe it was their means at some point.

  • TheOwley

    They all live in luxurious mansions, specially Gates. The difference is that they are billionaires and the cost of the homes and all that goes with it is never an issue. When millions are no longer coming in and you have financial troubles like this couple, all of a sudden, your mansion becomes and albatross and gotta get rid of it. LA county has high property taxes, then there is maintenance and security for the home. It adds up so, gotta sell.

  • TheOwley

    The home is lovely and fitting if you have a large family. I would take it but smaller and more manageable. No shame in that.

  • NicoleZee

    Mortgage??? WTF??? I thought Vince was worth millions, what does he need a loan for??? He could have purchased a nice home for $1 million in cash and wouldn’t be in this mess. I will never understand the financial choices of some people. Why does the company you work for need to loan you an advance if you are already making income??? And why do you need house that size for only three people??? When will these celebs learn??? If I hit Powerball, I’m not getting loans for shit, I will buy everything outright, that way, no debt! Sad fact is that most lottery winners have blown through their money or died because of it. How the hell can you be worth millions and you have loans to pay back??? What in the entire hell??? Sad. Most people do not deserve their good fortune. Let God bless someone with common sense please!

  • rachel

    Why did they purchase a home that they obviously couldn’t afford?

    Most Hollywood types buy those opulent houses because 1) they can borrow against it – 2nd mortgage; they can get $Millions$ against the house vs. thousands against the house. And 2) flip it for a profit.
