Evelyn Braxton

Evelyn Braxton's promotional tour made a stop in Atlanta where she appeared on the daytime talk show "Sister Circle" to promote season 5 of her daughter Tamar Braxton's reality TV show, Tamar & Vince, which premiered on Nov. 9.

Ms. Evelyn is telling everyone how badly her son-in-law Vincent Herbert beat Tamar, who filed for divorce from Vincent last month. But an insider whispered to Sandrarose.com that the divorce is fake -- just like T.I. and Tiny's on-again, off-again fake "divorce".

Fans are so over these publicity stunts.

I don't feel like rehashing old news, so below is an excerpt of a post I wrote back in 2014 about Vince using Tamar as a punching bag.

Of course, Tamar denied everything -- until it benefitted her financially to reveal the harsh truth.

Sandrarose.com does not condone violence in any form, but some women have a way of pushing men to violence.

Originally published on September 5, 2014:

via Sandrarose.com -- Tamar and Vince's relationship has reportedly gone cold (but you didn't hear that from me). Vince allegedly beats Tamar down to the ground on the regular. In fact, I'm told, the domestic abuse angle will be introduced this season. I even heard that the camera crew put their cameras down to pull Vince off of Tamar during a recent taping of the show.

I was shocked, SHOCKED, to hear about the alleged domestic violence. I didn't know Vince had it in him.

But that's not all. There's a rumor that Larry also beat Tamar like she was a direct descendant of Kunta Kinte.

No one deserves to be beaten like a runaway slave (not even Tamar). But, apparently, this is an open secret within the industry.

I'm told Tamar accepts this type of abuse from men (gay and straight) because she's afraid of being alone. I only hope their precious son doesn't get caught in the middle of their mess one day.


  • Shaylove1975

    So hes beating her and she's staying with him?

  • Shaylove1975

    Wait who is Larry? Why is the child still in the home?

  • justlooking

    First no one deserves this type of behavior and shame on his big slow looking ass.
    Does this explain the way she over compensates and her acting out?

    They both need help. (Did he go from eating to drinking heavily)

    God Bless all involved.

  • SDot

    sorry I dont believe this or her.

  • JRock

    Umm, of course the divorce is fake. Tamar pretty much said so a couple of weeks ago when she said there's a chance they might get back together. I can't even look at a picture of that heifer with the muppet face. It's disgusting face. It's a damned shame what people will do for money. I remember when she first came out she was calling herself by her birth name Tamar (pronunced like Lamar as in Odom). But then when she was trying to become a solo artist she started calling herself Tamar (pronunced Taymar). I'm like fake ass non-singing muppet face heifer just need to read the exit signs and leave.

    Side note: CBS has taken Charlie Rose off suspension and fired him.

  • PhillyFacts

    Is that why her face looks so distorted? OMG Vince is a "serial whoopa" must've been beating TIny, Nene, Lil Kim, KK and a whole lotta other chicks too.

  • Soon2BWife

    There was a time when women on daytime TV dressed with decoram and class. Thigh high boots, really? Sheer fitted top? Close your legs Selena. Jeez!!! I don't believe this a stunt....Vince won't be able to recover from this bad press and Mama E. doesn't strike me as the type of woman to prtake in such games.

  • MissHarlem

    I said season one with Tamar and Vince that something ain't right. But noooo because someone is loud etc it can't be or even worse she deserved it ? anyway keep your head up Tamar ?

  • Tink Tink

    She barricaded herself in the room and left her daughter for dead....

  • https://www.instagram.com/nymagee/ Ny MaGee

    Of course, Tamar denied everything — until it benefitted her financially to reveal the harsh truth. ---> THIS. Amen.

  • https://www.instagram.com/nymagee/ Ny MaGee

    Because her daughter had been putting up with it for years, so momma was like, "Welp, no need for me to die with her. I tried, Lawd. I tried with this one. It's in your hands now."

  • TheOwley

    Remember this is Spaaarta, Kick. That's me and these silly reality shows.

  • Ni Ni

    Something is wrong with Tamar mentally if she keeps choosing men that beat on her.

  • Pnthr

    Why didn't she call 911? She protected Logan but let Tamar fend for herself? I'm sorry but these Braxton's are a trip. They were quiet about the abuse all this time but the minute Vince has money problems they're squealing like pigs.

  • E Jai


  • Armymom20

    who is Larry?

  • LadyL

    That's what I am wondering. Sandra who is Larry?

  • JRock

    Who is the Neanderthal sitting with her legs open wearing a size 16 shoe?

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    He wanted a Barbie on his arm and she wanted a rich man in the industry to boost her career. Both paths have come and gone so time to split. Yeah, I get it.

  • Ni Ni

    Sounds like Tamar gave her the ahead to go on these talk shows.

  • Renee26

    I think it's so sad for this to have been happening and the family didn't/couldn't intervene. She had the resources to get away that too many women don't have but chose to stay in the relationship...and her sisters and parents just turned the other cheek. Why is it so acceptable for couples to get physical with each other??

  • xenaD

    Trying to do damage control. Imagine if Tamar left him right in the middle of his bankruptcy or whatever is going on!... so y not oust him now as the abuser he is and she comes off as the victim here... no questions asked and who’s going to blame a dv victim ???!!! Perfect timing! Some will question why did she put up with it for so long... but that will not even put a dent in the amount of support she will receive for being a dv survivor... especially in the “no victim blaming” frame of mind the entire Hollywood is in.

  • Renee26

    Ok!! They have been taught to hid the truth and internalize their issues... the sisters were raised to turn the other cheek by their mother and all have put up with a lot from their men (plays out on the show) I think the mother should have just kept her mouth shut at this point because she didn't speak on it when it happened and rally the family together to end the abuse

  • Renee26

    Low self esteem

  • Renee26

    Nobody deserves that and nobody brings it upon themselves

  • Wreckognize Game

    Watching this season of Tamar and Vince is not for me. I tried two episodes but I see it is going the way of Tiny and Tip when they first started filming separate from each other but with the kids. Ti and Major on the fake PI stakeout and Tiny with Shekinah on road trips. Tamar sitting there with her good Judys and Vince hangs out with No Neck. Just cancel it already.

    And nobody can tell me that Ms. E and Tamar aint in this "around the world bash Vince session" together. Because Mom will tell what Tamar cant and wish a nukka would question her.

  • unknown user

    Dont care and havent liked her since the first season of The Braxtons Show. Now she has a spin off!!??? Got her momma out here promoting this foolishness! No thank you

  • Trace da Ace

    omg i almost pisssed myself when I read this!!!!! LMAO!!!! I was thinking the same thing!!! Damn thats a mighty big foot!

  • thrift.store.jungle

    looking all strong and diesel. image consultant needs to recommend she cross them ankles.

  • Trace da Ace

    ok.....as I said before, I will always say A MAN WILL DO WHAT YOU ALLOW HIM TO DO!! I wish to hell that Vince would put hands on me and I take it??? HUNTY!!! I would kick him so hard and deep in his gut my foot would be lodged in that bish!!! I would beat his azz like Tina did to Ike in that limo.....I would starve him until he ate his self.....I would knock all his chicklet teeth down his sewage drain throat and ask him do he want some more!!! In now way would I EVER let a man lay hands on me and get away with it!!! I would make him regret the day he even thought of it!! #LORAINABOBBITT.......these females need to recognize their self worth and value and if a man lays hands on them....exit stage left. I remember an ex in college thought he was going to smack me and get away with it....NO MAAM'.....I stabbed him with a screw driver.....never had any problems out of him since....of course I quit his ass like summer school on top of that.

  • Ni Ni

    I would starve him until he ate his self.
    ??? you gotta show them that yo azz is crazy too.

  • MocaPretty

    Sandrarose.com does not condone violence in any form...BUT...There should be no but if you do not condone violence.


    I have been feeling for a long time that this family have sold their souls out. if you look at the first couple of season from now you can just see it. Evelyn is the ring leader.

  • imright

    ????? i believe the abuse is mutual between Tamar & Vince. i also think theyre exploiting their marital issues for Tv,& music sales.? 2 of Tamars favorite ppl are Beyonce & Tiny...u do the maff ??

  • Junkanoo

    Bleaching creme also helped to remove the black off of Tamar. This Braxton crew are just looking to keep their tv show going. Evelyn should stay out of this mess publicly ,Tamar stayed in the marriage for business reasons love had nothing to do with it so she gets no sympathy from me

    I don't know if I believe this to be true. Ole Big Vince doesn't look like he could raise his hand quick enough to be slapping someone around...

  • T3

    That part took me out ???????

    And Yep. Sometimes you have to. All I can hear is, yeah I'm pretty but I'm loco lol

  • sunni_daze

    There were reports over the summer and calls to the cops. Don't judge a book by its cover, we get the impression he wants us to have. She gets the real and what we don't see.

  • sunni_daze

    For all of you making fun of domestic violence, pray it never happens to you or your daughter or your momma's, aunties or any other woman in your family. Bunch of FUCKING ASSHOLES

  • brooklyn23

    That shit made me chuckle too. Original

  • Anunnaki

    Wait..People making fun of tamar being beat....

  • Quitedeliteful

    Very true...

  • JanusMaximus

    They both look like they snatched off the Donald's wig (and put it atop their own head) in those pics #WhyDontYouCombOverHere

  • Liah

    Never say never...Thats how most abuser move...Not judging just saying...OnlyThey know what really happened in there marriage

  • Liah

    ..I would starve him until he ate his self.!!!!


  • Malcom Flex

    Down lows beat down women. Yall remember I've BEEN saying it.

  • IAmLawlessBrooks

    Love Mama Evelyn!!! No wonder no one likes Vince and the sisters always sobbed him

  • ?Royalty?


    Why like Kunte Kinte tho? ?? I'm so disappointed in you.........and me, cause I had to stifle a giggle. ??

  • Sid

    I have been through domestic abuse. And the worst part about it to me is it was the man that i would kill over. I was so in love i didn’t even know who i was anymore because I was his girl. It took him knocking me out to wake up to reality.

  • ?Royalty?

    I knew a girl in high school who didn't feel her boyfriend loved her unless he smacked her around every now and then. It was the craziest mess I'd ever heard up - until that point. ?

  • ?Royalty?

    ??@"serial whoopa"

  • Kitty Cat

    I woke up to a gun pointed at me. Iwas delusional deep in love. He took a wrong turn and went to jail that's how I got rid of him.

  • ArDnAhC45

    Who is Larry?

  • dontgetblocked

    I'm a domestic violence advocate but something about this story doesn't sit well with me. I'm not calling anyone a liar because he could be a monster behind closed doors. She just never came off as being abused...more like spoiled by him.

  • dontgetblocked

    I hesitant as well. Also she never appeared to be abused...more like a loud mouthed spoiled brat.

  • Layah Jhene

    Miss me with Vince being physically abusive. Verbally? Yeah But physically? Nope. Not unless they were fighting and he got the upper hand

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    So is this what folk do now? Tolerate the abuse reap the benefits until the benefits rub out then cry to the public...do a tour for sympathy and money then ......FOH...BYE..

  • Aries Dog

    The boyfriend she had that also beat her and then came out the closet. That’s why I believe that most women beaters are down-low.

  • Mrs.Meenie

    Where there is smoke there is fire. Been a couple of occasions where abuse was reported regarding Vince, the first one I can remember is when he bit her finger at the hotel. Now that Vince is being sued for a few millions now it is fair game on him. Tamar specifically said in the BFC interview that Vince is the one being sued not her. When she said that I knew their marriage was over.

  • JRock

    Anything for money. I would never sell my soul in this way for money. It is quite pathetic.

  • jrock

    Wait you advocate domestic violence? Or was it a typo and you meant to say you do not ADVOCATE domestic violence?

  • JRock

    The last domestic violence I ever went through is the night of Jimmy Carter's election as president. Me and my son's father had just left his mom's house and we were riding in his snow white Ford Thunderbird car and he didn't like it when he yelled at me and I would not respond and he would haul off and hit me because of it. We had just pulled up to a red light. He was driving and I was in the passenger seat and he was driving with one hand and wailing on me with the other. Well, on this night, I was fed up and I had my shoes off in the car and I remember just jumping out of the car when the light turned green and running down the street in my socks. Unfortunately everyone driving by just watched him get out the car and run after me and continue beating me as he dragged me back to the car. No one helped me. I eventually broke free of him and that fool had the nerve on no less than 5 occasions to ask me to take him back. Wrong. Not going to happen so that you can continue to beat the snot out of me. My sisters told me if I ever went back to him to not call them the next time he beat my ass and that was it for me.

  • starbright9449

    That's how a lot of abused women come off. I've seen it first hand.

  • Keepin’IT100

    I don’t believe it

  • hotlantaboss

    I hope Tamar WAS with Vince for money; what other incentive is there? Cause he’s a hot piece of tail? Cause he’s such a sweetie pie? If it had nothing to do with money, then she really is stupid.

  • Calikush

    So sorry u went through that! Glad u r free and out of that relationship!

  • Tee Bullock

    Lmao you need a whooping!

  • Tee Bullock


  • hottlanta

    glad you are okay. His wrong turn was the right turn for you.

  • hottlanta

    That is why we women needs to stop saying when a woman breaks up with someone "she can't keep a man" when a lot of times she is leaving she is saving her life. My mom was the bravest woman I know to raise 8 kids by herself when my dad left. He did us a favor by leaving because when he was there he served no purpose. When he left the house was peaceful and quick where we could get some rest.

  • starryeyed

    We need an LOL button on here

  • starryeyed

    not unless they were fighting over the big piece of chicken...I can see that

  • ?Royalty?

    ? I've never even heard about this guy.

  • reddfoxxy16

    Me either...

  • Li

    No man wants to be known as a wife beater....not good for his rep and future clients. So this may be fake news for the reality show, but who would agree to it?

  • Well$$Well$$?

    Didn't the police get called to their hotel because Vince bit her? I always thought that was weird. I believe the mom. Why would she make this up? Domestic abuse is serious as hell and I'm glad Tamar found the courage to leave. Many women don't...

  • hotlantaboss

    If Miss Evelyn is lying, then Viola Davis should be working the chitlin circuit.

  • Well$$Well$$?

    Most women don't stay in abusive relationships to reap the benefits. Some stay because they're scared. Some stay because they're abuser makes them believe it's their fault. I get y'all don't like Tamar's personality. She's extra af but no one deserves to be pounded on. Imo of course...

  • Well$$Well$$?

    I believe her. The truth is often stranger than fiction.

  • hotlantaboss

    You can tell by her conviction that she’s telling the hard truth. It baffles me that people can’t see that. I know not to come here for sympathy if I ever need it.

  • Well$$Well$$?

    Me too. Women you'd never think would let someone hit them...

  • SG

    YEAH there’s nothing funny about it. Tamar is extra but no one deserves to be abused. I know too many women that have lost their lives behind domestic violence. JUst this past weekend in my hometown a woman and her 14 year old son were killed by her pOS husband. HER son died trying to defend his mom . while she was being beaten

  • JRock

    Thank you. Me too. So is my family.

  • Marlika

    This breaks my heart to hear.? I’m sorry you had to go through this, but I so happy you had the courage to leave and made it out safe.

  • abby500

    What is wrong with her face?

  • YouWontSayItButIWill

    Looking like Nene. Who done this to you?

  • Shaylove1975

    Has anyone in here read gabriellw unions book? Tge part about tge sruffed animal is very similar to that book diary of a sex addict based on a true story with tge girl on the front reading tge diary.

  • Naptastical

    I remember back in the day Gabe (Tamar’s ex brother in law) got busted in a cheating scandal and was filmed telling Braxton family secrets to his side piece via Skype. One of the secrets was that Vince would break the brakes of Tamar. This was either the first or second season of Braxton Family Values during hiatus and I always believed it. He didn’t have anything to gain from lying about that.

  • Indies beauty

    You can always count on Sandra for a giggle. This is completely serious but the flashback post had me dead. Lol disappointed but appreciative.

  • darealwifey

    Damn, ya'll. This is deep. I promise I could tell Vince was at least VERBALLY abusive when I watched early episodes of the show, but I would have never guessed that Vince was this VICIOUS. You never know what people are going through behind closed doors, man. I pray Tamar has the courage to walk away and never look back. No human being deserves to be beat. I'm glad Ms. E is speaking up for her child to try to get her away from this man.

  • http://worldstarhiphop.com/ The Dutchess

    Who's Larry?

  • Kimberly King

    Thankfully, I've never been through anything like this. I honestly believe I would try to kill a ninja if he ever put his hands on me. I don't go around hitting men or people in general), so I expect the same in return. I don't even like people standing close to me. I'm sure this news about Tamar and Vince is true, so I hope she gets away from his fat, ugly ass.

  • Armymom20

    oh, thank you. I never knew that.

  • Dowoop

    I was reading this wondering the same thing.

  • http://bettybooplover.tumblr.com/ Berry Melon

    Well last year there was a 911 call where Vince had bitten her finger. Everyone online went into uproar. Every time he did something to her she would defend him, so what did she expect? If you defend someone that you love, who beats you - they will think nothing of their actions and continue to beat you up when they are in a rage.

  • Look@m3

    I agree...I feel like Id have to see this in action. If that's the case he plays a good role whenever he try to appear to be irritated with her. Either way this wont be the first Pub. stunt if it is one. I hope these are just rumors. If It is oh well....they wont be the first or the last!

  • Quitedeliteful

    It may just be a publicity stunt because why stay with a man that's knocking you around?? She has her own money, her own career, supportive family plus the police don't play when it comes to DV. I'm still on the fence about this...

  • Look@m3

    On fence as well....totally agree

  • Mister Fantastic

    Vince live your truth. Come on out that closet mouth breather!

  • Mrs2KalEl

    I went back and watched a few of their old episodes...looks like some of that make up was covering a black eye or two..allegedly

  • usher #1fan????

    an ex-boyfriend of Tamar's that used to beat her that she also talked about

  • http://worldstarhiphop.com/ The Dutchess

    I know she was abused before when she was young I'm assuming that's who Larry is but they just threw his name out like we were all supposed to know him lol

  • Goodii2Shoes

    Lol, @sandrarose, lol,

  • Goodii2Shoes

    If they show him slapping her I'm DEFINITELY tuning in for the rerun.

    #Child bye,, ,,,,,, heauxs who stick around for the "paid" beatings are a dime a bakers dozen in my world,, show us the goodies u get from letting him assault u on IG Tay lol

  • kekeb

    So she knew the alleged beatings were going on and she kept silent during the green screens/confessionals? Child please.

  • kekeb

    I totally agree. But he always have me a child molester vibe

  • kekeb


  • Dr.Rue

    Bye mama evelyn. You mean to tell me you and your kids/ their father/husbands let Tamar get beat for a decade by Vince's fat funky butt???

  • Patricia

    what is the family supposed to do? shes an adult and if she chose to stay with an abusive husband in her home, thats her decision to make.

  • Patricia

    thats the hardest part to face is the realization that the person does NOT respect you the reason they are hurting you in the first place and that they will never respect you bc they view you staying, forgiving, and continuing to love them as you allow yourself to be their victim. people always take kindness for weakness.

  • darealwifey


  • friendofblog

    Exactly. Love your love, respect and admiration for your brave & courageous mom!!!!

  • the guest

    Tamar was in a situation a lot of industry women are in but no one talks about it. These women are being victimized in exchange for opportunity and security. It's evil when men exploit a woman's desire to be loved and her human desire to succeed in life. Instead of being loving and encouraging, Vince controlled, exploited, and abused. When he was Lady Gaga's business manager and uber wealthy, he was a help to her family financially. Some women feel trapped by that too, not wanting to let their family down.

  • Applebootay

    Well if she did know and didn't say anything it would be because they were all LIVING off Vince. Enjoying the lux life with a black eye.

  • BrownSuga

    You right..just like the women & men that are coming out about being sexual harassed or abused in Hollywood etc..

  • sunni_daze

    I am so sorry to hear that.

  • SG

    It was terrible. The week before her mother had begged her to get a restraining order on that fool but she didn’t listen.

  • usher #1fan????

    Lol ikr
