After days of arguing back and forth, the Senate finally reached a bipartisan agreement on President Donald Trump's $2 trillion economic stimulus package deal early Wednesday.

The bill contains checks ranging from $1,200 to $4,500 for individuals and small business owners. Families will receive an additional $500 for each child.

Checks for $1,200 will be sent directly to taxpayers who earned less than $75,000 a year in 2018.

But before you start spending money you haven't received yet, Tamar Braxton's fiancé, David Adefeso is sharing financial advice on his Instagram account.

The stock market is soaring on the news of the economic stimulus deal. David thinks you should take some of that federal money and invest it for your future.

Small businesses including retailers, restaurants, real estate and personal care professionals, comprise the largest employer pool in the U.S. They are also some of the hardest hit during this shutdown because many haven’t built up enough cash reserves to account for the plunge in revenues they are currently experiencing, with no end in sight. Mass furloughs and layoffs by small businesses could drastically drive up the unemployment rate and cause consumer spending to plunge precipitously, thereby extending the inevitable recession. To make loans cheaper the Federal Reserve reduced interest rates to close to zero and Congress is currently debating measures to aid small businesses, including loan guarantees. For those who need immediate assistance, a growing list of programs exist to help small businesses, including emergency funding from the government, protection from eviction and business loan deferment. The Small Business Administration’s website (www.sba.gov) is a good place to start for information on some of these programs. “Together We Stand; But Divided We Fall”.

In a touching Instagram post wishing his fiancee a happy birthday, David, 51, let it slip that she is actually 45.

"Happy birthday, my @tamarbraxton . You are the most beautiful girl in the World, and I can’t wait to see what amazing surprises the next 45 years brings us."

Tamar is the youngest of the singing Braxton sisters. Superstar Toni Braxton (pictured) is the eldest sibling at 52. Traci is 48; Towanda is 46, and Trina is 45. No, Trina and Tamar aren't twins; Trina turns 46 in December.

Why do some women lie about their age? They lie for a variety of reasons: insecurity, low self confidence, low self-esteem, middle age crisis, etc.

Most celebrities lie about their age to hang onto their youth a little bit longer. But if you paid attention over the years, Tamar's ex-husband Vincent Herbert tried to tell us she was lying about her age.

Little did I know walking into that busy restaurant nearly two years ago that the course of my life would change so dramatically. From the sun baked streets of Lagos to the white sands of Montego Bay and the bustling city life of suburban Mexico, you have been on a journey with me filled with laughter, tears, hope and never-ending love. Through it all your friendship has been invaluable, your counsel irreplaceable and your love unshakeable. Nothing prepared me for the complete and never-ending joy I experience with you every day. And no matter what crowded clouds appear in the horizon, the sunshine of your smile, the purity of your heart and the kindness of your words never fail to reinforce the strength of the unbreakable bond that is the love we share. You are my heart, you are my joy, you are my future, and you are my friend. Happy birthday, my @tamarbraxton . You are the most beautiful girl in the World, and I can’t wait to see what amazing surprises the next 45 years brings us.

In a new sit-down interview, talk show host Loni Love again denied getting Tamar Braxton fired as a co-host on The Real.

Loni, 48, has repeatedly denied backstabbing Tamar and getting her fired from the daytime talk show. Rumor has it that Loni wanted to be the only "ghetto girl" on the show.

In a wide-ranging interview with Madamenoire, Loni again denied the allegations.

"I will say this, anybody that knows me, knows that I will not describe myself as a ghetto girl. I wouldn't describe Tamar Braxton as a ghetto girl," Loni said.

"I might say that we believe in the power of being ourselves. But ghetto girl?! I would never do that. And also, there's a lesson in this. When you try to help people, you have to watch who you help. I've never been against any Black woman. My fans know that. That's the reason why I wrote this book. When you read the book, you will see. I've been trying to get the truth out for years. But here, we dealing with this reality show type [mentality]."

Loni clarified what she meant when she asked where are all the plus-size icons?

"What I'm trying to say is, there are beautiful plus-size models out here. I know that because I'm about to run this Ashley Stewart campaign and I said, 'Give me your plus-size models. Beautiful girls. But I only see them on Ashley Stewart. I don't see them on the cover of Ebony. I don't see them on the cover of Elle and Vogue. So you're telling me everybody got to be a 00 or a 2 to be on the cover of a magazine? That's what I meant."

She confirmed making her man, James Welsh, sign a non-disclosure agreement:

"I think an NDA -- especially when you are a female that is making your way, and you meet somebody who is going to be in your life - it's not about them. It's about the people that are around them. And it's not to question their friends' character. But let me tell you something, when people need money, they do strange and odd things. And so an NDA is simply a way of protecting yourself. And that's all it is. It's not that you don't trust the person. I trust James 100 percent. But the point is, when people get upset or mad - and we're talking about down the road - things happen. It's no different than me having a prenup."

Braxton, 42, transformed herself from a Brazilian weave-wearing socialite to a member of team natural, having shorn her hair off to make a new start after divorcing industry executive Herbert Vincent, the father of her son.

Braxton wrote that her "flaws [are] not her weakness, but the strength and attraction to the one that is meant to be in [her] life."

Tamar Braxton clarified comments she made about women sleeping with down low men amid public backlash from the LGBT+ community who say the comments were divisive and harmful.

The 42-year-old R&B singer sparked controversy when she issued a "public service announcement" advising women that they may be sleeping with a bisexual man if he shows a lack of interest in her sexually.

"If he lays with you for 3, 4, 10 days and he don't touch u, it's NOT YOU!! HE WANT A MAN!! And that's on my momma."

Many say Tamar is bitter because she has a history of hooking up with suspect men, including her ex-husband Vincent Herbert and boyfriend David Adefeso (pictured).

Tamar clarified her comment saying she was not referring to boyfriend Adefeso.

"Y'all know I'm going live.... If you are in ya bag, ya shouldn't be. I shouldn't have been in My feelings, granted on social media based off a conversation with my friends. I was talking about me but not me and David. I've been through a lot. This is why i stay on my fake page," she tweeted.
