Tamar Braxton’s divorce announcement took fans by surprise last week. Many could not believe that the singer was moving for marriage dissolution since she had discussed the possibility of working through the issues she was having with her husband, Vincent Herbert, during a recent interview with Wendy Williams. Nevertheless, Tamar has filed divorce paperwork with the courts, and here’s what you need to know.
Tamar is asking for joint legal custody of Logan
Several sources accused the singer of requesting sole legal custody of her and Vincent’s son. Court documents, however, show that Tamar is seeking joint custody so that both she and Vince can determine what’s right for their son.
Tamar is requesting sole physical custody of her and Vince’s son
She may be willing to leave Vincent with his parental rights, but Tamar does not want her son to live with her soon-to-be ex-husband. Legal documents show that the singer is seeking sole physical custody of Logan with Vince getting reasonable visitation of his son.
Tamar wants Vince to pay her attorney’s fees
It’s usually the one filing for divorce who takes on the main financial brunt of proceedings. Tamar, however, is hoping to have her estranged husband pay for hers and his legal costs.
Braxton also doesn’t want Vincent to be awarded spousal support
Many believe that Tamar requesting no alimony be given to her estranged husband is an indication of Vince’s pockets weighing thin. Could it be, however, that the celebrity mom is simply covering all of her bases? Perhaps yes, and maybe no.
