Tamar Braxton will say goodbye to pop stardom in order to save her marriage to Vincent Herbert.
“There are a lot of things that I want to do, and a lot of things that are in the works,” Braxton, 40, told Entertainment Tonight. “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.”
Braxton and Herbert, 44, have been married since 2008 and have one son together, Logan.
“My husband and I work very close together and it’s really hard, you know?” Braxton added. “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.”
She admits that while focusing on her career over the last several years, including a reality show with her famous sisters, a stint on “The Real” and more, she sometimes let her marriage fall behind in her priorities.
“This is just my job,” she said of singing. “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.”
Her fifth and final album, “Bluebird of Happiness,” will be released September 29. She will, however, continue to write songs for other artists.
