After hearing from matriarch Evelyn Braxton and watching Vincent Herbert plead on social media to keep his marriage intact, Tamar Braxton finally took to Instagram to give an explanation as to why she is going through with her divorce from Herbert – and it is a lengthy explanation, at that.

She said she was tired of staying married only for “face value” and revealed that at some point, Vince told her to “get the f— out.”

Sometimes we stay ‘married’ for face value or to say ‘we did it’ but the truth is..it couldn’t be more broken & further apart than we are NOW!..even on an anniversary!” Tamar captioned her post.

You can say he did this, she did that, I put up with ‘this’ & I’ve suffered & endured ‘this’ for so long…but the TRUTH is that this was your choice 2 stay,” she added.

We get so caught up in WE are ‘winning’ in love that we are LOSING a battle that doesn’t have ANYTHING 2 do with us! I decided I didn’t want to be married for the sake of saying so.”

She continued, “Is it ok that he checks up on u when his phone(s) R stuck to him like glue? Is it ok that his friends are HIS friends but my friends are ‘our’ friends? Or, we fight but that’s ‘passion’ let’s get deep for a second..we can argue & u can tell me to gtf out of ‘your’ house when I’m the house of cards? None of this is ok…& while I’m not pushing anyone out of the door…I’m just telling you what has pushed me out of mine! That LAST time was the LAST time.”

The pair, who share a 4-year-old son, Logan, called it quits at the end of October after nearly nine years together.

But the truth is all of those things are NOT within the marriage of Tamar & Vince?￰゚マᄑ‍♀ ..at least not anymore.married people who are reading will know what I mean.
