After news broke that reality TV pair Tamar Braxton and Vincent Herbert had a violent fight last month, the two are getting support from within the gospel community.
On Monday, September 5, while guest hosting the Tom Joyner Morning Show, 28-year married couple David and Tamela Mann encouraged people to pray instead of speculate.
“They business is their business,” said “Take Me to the King” singer Tamela, 50. “You don’t know what they were doing. I mean, it’s just hearsay and plus, people add.”
Last month, Vincent, 47, and 39-year-old Tamar’s stay at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Atlanta, GA turned violent. In a publicly released 911 call, a friend of Tamar reported a fight between the two to police, claiming that Vincent, who allegedly fled the scene, had bitten his wife’s finger.
No charges were filed.
David, also 50, who stars and executive produces Bounce TV’s hit sitcom “Mann & Wife,” along with his wife, chimed in. “I say just keep them lifted up and everybody goes through some storms. I’m sure they’ve sat down and they’ve talked about it, because both of them seem like very reasonable people.”
The comedian, singer and actor, who rose to prominence playing Mr. Brown in Tyler Perry’s “Meet the Browns” admits, “I know them from just passing and don’t know them real deep and personal.”
Nevertheless, both he and Tamela are wishing the couple well.
Over the weekend, Tamar, who has admiited in previous interviews that she once fell victim to domestic violence in a past relationship, told the press she refuses to defend her relationship to others.
“I’m not even finna defend my relationship to anybody. Ever. This is a marriage,” she said walking through the airport. The “Love & War” singer continued, “This is not my baby daddy. This is not my boyfriend. We don’t live together. This is my husband for 13 years, so everybody else have several seats.”
While some have expressed concern for Tamar’s safety and predicted the inevitable demise of her union, Tamela said, “I’m praying that they just make it 28 years like us. We’re praying for you Vince and Tamar!”
David went on, “If she done went home and say ‘Baby, let’s work this out’ and he said ‘Baby, let’s work this out,’ we need to stay out of it and let them do they thing.”
