Singer Tamar Braxton is currently in a middle of a messy divorce with her estranged husband Vince Herbert.  And now Tamar’s mother Evelyn Braxton is speaking out. According to reports, she is happy that the relationship is finally over. She states that her daughter has been suffering emotional and physical abuse for years.

In a recent interview with The Grio, Evelyn says:

“It was definitely a volatile relationship. This has been going on for years. Everybody saw Vince as a knight and shining armor, [but] behind closed doors that’s a horse of another color.  I’m tired of [Tamar] being abused and misused.”

She also exposed WE Tv:

“We spoke up about it on the ‘Braxton Family Values’ but they would not show it. They would show all the other girls and their husbands, but when it came to Vince, they took it out of the show.”

When Evelyn addressed Vince concerning the allege abuse, she say 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 is speaking out now because not only does she want Tamar and Logan to be safe, but she wants to put an end to domestic violence.

“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. Enough is enough. I don’t care how much they smile. I don’t care how much they pretend.”

She adds,

“It’s too bad they couldn’t work it out, however, I’m tired of her being abused and misused. And I’m tired of being in the middle of it. It’s harder than what you think,” she says. “Sometimes you have to move forward, even when we don’t want to. Life is extremely short and things can happen within the twinkling of an eye. This too shall pass.”
