Tamar Braxton Explains Retirement
Earlier this month, we revealed that Tamar Braxton was officially retiring from music. Announcing the news on social media, she said that her current album, Blue Bird of Happiness, would be her last.
Fast forward to the present day and it appears that the reality star and singer is serious about retirement. She says,
There are a lot of things that I want to do, and a lot of things that are in the works. 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 [music executive Vince Herbert] 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.
Tamar, who shares a 4-year-old son Logan w/ Vince, says she’s ready to turn her focus to her family, noting that her marriage is the part of her life she sometimes let’s fall by the wayside. She says of singing,
This is just my job. When I go home, that’s my home. I always want to keep my home a sanctuary and somewhere safe. Not just for me, but for my husband and my kid.
On potentially expanding their family and having more children, she says:
I’m so mad at myself, because I wanted the Partridge Family and I didn’t know it until, you know, Logan got to be a certain age. I’m like, what? Yeah, I really want more kids. I would love to have at least five.
After the tour, she says there is also a possible return to daytime TV for Tamar, who was fired from the Real in 2016.
I miss it. I can’t wait to get back. That’s what I’m gonna say.
Bluebird of Happiness is available for pre-order and will be released September 29th.
