Tamar Braxton is divorcing Vince Herbert.
The 'Love and War' singer has announced she will be splitting from the 44-year-old songwriter - with whom she shares four-year-old son Logan - after nearly nine years of marriage.
Her representative said in a statement: ''At this time we can confirm Ms. Braxton has made an extremely difficult decision and has filed for divorce from Vincent Herbert.
''Collectively, their son Logan and his well-being during this extremely unfortunate process is most important. We ask that everyone respects her privacy during this incredibly difficult time. She appreciates everyone's love and prayers.''
It comes after Tamar admitted it was ''really hard'' working so close with her husband, who is also the manager of her music career, and contemplated leaving her recording career behind to save her relationship.
She explained previously: ''There's a lot of things that are going on in my relationship and me being close to this music industry, and whatever I can do to eliminate all of the stress and problems off of my relationship, I would rather do that.
''My husband and I work very close together and it's really hard, you know? Not only do we work together, he is my baby daddy and, you know, we've been together forever. He's my best friend. It's a lot of things to discuss and argue about.''
And in scenes from season five of the couple's reality show 'Tamar and Vince', which were aired on Wednesday (25.10.17), Vince confessed he thought Tamar was ''going through a midlife crisis'' as she has become ''hard to manage''. When she was confronted by his comments, Tamar fumed, telling him she'd rather manage herself in the future.
The trailer ended with Tamar removing her wedding ring and telling her husband: ''I'm not willing to live like I've been living.''
