Tamar Braxton Prides Herself on Being a Good Co-parent with Vince Herbert 3 Years after Split
Tamar Braxton recently admitted that she is proud of herself for being a good co-parent with her ex-husband, Vince Herbert. She opened up during an episode of her podcast "Under Construction with Tamar Braxton."
Singer Tamar Braxton has been enjoying her latest venture, a podcast that recently hosted Anthony Dorsett Jr., a two-time Super Bowl football champion.
During the candid interview, the two stars talked about single parenting and how the footballer managed his relationship with his baby mama and Braxton also talked briefly about her own journey.
Braxton revealed that she and her ex-husband Herbert had a good co-parenting relationship, adding that she didn't cause him any of the drama that is sometimes present after a couple splits.
The "Braxton Family Values" star even joked that she referred to her child's father as her cousin because of how family-oriented their relationship is.
The 43-year-old singer also admitted that while she encourages Herbert to date, she found it difficult to date someone without a child because she often puts her son first.
Braxton and Herbert were married for nine years before the singer filed for divorce in October 2017. Their divorce was finalized in July 2019.
The two met in 2003 after being introduced by the singer's sister, Toni Braxton, who was working with the 47-year old music producer. In 2008, they welcomed a baby boy, Logan Herbert.
In a lengthy post on her Instagram feed, Braxton said she split from her husband because she believed she had been living a lie and no longer felt the need to continue with an unhappy relationship.
Although she didn't disclose what exactly lead to the separation, she did insist that she had taken as much as she could for the sake of the marriage.
Three years after the divorce, the couple is now in a good place although it took some time for them to figure out their dynamic as co-parents. She told ET Online:
"We realized it's not about us. It's not about our feelings. It's not about what happened. It's about Logan."
The former "The Real" host admitted that she put her son through counseling following the divorce and that the counselor encouraged the parents to get along for the sake of their child.
At the time of the ET Online interview in May, Braxton openly talked about her relationship with David Adefeso but just a few months later, things took a turn for the singer.
In September, Adefeso filed a restraining order against the singer alleging that she had physically assaulted him. Braxton maintained her innocence on an episode of the "The Tamron Hall Show" in October.
