The singer and reality star confirms the split and hints it’s due to infidelity

Braxton has been posting a series of cryptic messages to her social media in recent weeks, leading to many fans believing she was single. She recently confirmed such while speaking at the Ultimate Women’s Expo in Atlanta, Georgia.

“I’m involved with myself because these dudes out here is for everybody. I had to really pick that up, especially moving back to Atlanta; I didn’t know these guys were so communal. Somebody could have told me that,” she said per Atlanta Blackstar, hinting that they split because JR couldn’t commit to one woman.

Tamar Braxton Reunites With Vincent Herbert at Recent Concert

Toward the end of her statement, the Braxton Family Values alum noted that some women are conditioned to accept a man cheating to keep their relationship. But she says she refuses to settle for that idea.

“I think it’s because us as women we have learned to accept things we should not accept, and we are not comfortable with being by ourselves,” she said. “I think once we accept ourselves in our own skin, the right person is going to show themselves to us because I’m not interested in sharing your man with me. That’s never going to work.”

She previously opened up about why she’s never had a successful relationship

Braxton has spoken about being in non-committed relationships previously. While speaking with married friends Cora Jakes Coleman and Brandon Coleman on her Under Construction podcast, they spoke about the key to maintaining a long-term marriage. Braxton was previously married to Vincent Herbert and subsequently engaged to David Adefeso

“While you were talking, it just dawned on me why I haven’t had a successful relationship,” Braxton stated during the chat. “That commitment was never present at the same time. Because it’s a two-way street. Everybody has to feel that way all the time. Everybody gotta feel that way in this relationship. And if I just feel it and you don’t feel it – or if you feel it and I don’t feel it, it’s not going to work.”
