Mother knows best…

Evelyn Braxton Doubles Down On Vincent Herbert Abuse Claims

Tamar Braxton’s mother is adamant that a history of emotional and physical abuse ended her daughter’s marriage. As previously reported Evelyn Braxton told Vince via TMZ to “keep his hands off her child before he kills her.”

Now amid rumors that Tamar refused to film with Evelyn because she broke the news on the alleged abuse, Evelyn’s speaking out further and doubling down on the allegations.

The Braxton matriarch spoke exclusively to The Grio and told them that the couple’s been trying to hide the alleged abuse for YEARS but she has the “audacity to tell the truth.”

Furthermore, Evelyn alleges that Vince blamed Tamar’s “mouth” for the abuse…

“When asked if she ever addressed Herbert over his alleged abuse, Evelyn Braxton, who temporarily lived in the couple’s Los Angeles home, says his response was always that Tamar’s “mouth” was to blame. “It’s always ‘it’s Tamar’s mouth’…it’s always someone else. That does not give you the right to abuse her. Everybody has a mouth. Everyone should have the right to say what they want. Are you trying to beat [her] into submissiveness? No one has the right,” she says.

and her sisters tried to intervene.

“Her sisters have been trying to fight Vince for a long time but it was always denied,” she says.


Remember that BOSSIP exclusive about Vince allegedly biting Tamar during a fight at the Atlanta Ritz Carlton? Ms. Braxton confirmed that the story’s true and added that she’s using this opportunity to speak out on domestic violence against not only her daughter but other women. She adds that she and Tamar are fine now and “talking and hugging.”

“I think too many women are abused, and it’s high time that we stand up and stop this madness,” she told The Grio. “Do you know how many women are killed each year? I just don’t want Tamar to be a part of that.

“If anything happens to Tamar, that’s Logan’s (Tamar and Vince’s son) loss. That’s my loss. That’s her family’s loss. I don’t want that kind of pain,” she adds. “Enough is enough. I don’t care how much they smile. I don’t care how much they pretend.”

Speaaaaak Ms. Evelyn. Tell the truth and shame the devil, no matter who it is.
