Was it cheating? Was it growing apart? Or was it Vince’s slim down? For the past few weeks we’ve all been speculating with bifocal glasses on about why Tamar Braxton filed for divorce from Vincent Herbert, her husband of nine years.

Tamar had been sub tweeting weeks before filing (if one can read between the lines) about no longer being in a good place in the relationship. Sources have said there have been some altercations and reported fighting at their home and that police had even been called to the couple’s Atlanta house. Others have said that Vince had financial issues, some of which were even kept from Tamar.

But like any divorce, there are possibly multiple factors why the singer and her hubby/manager are now splitting. But can weight loss truly lead otherwise seemingly good couple down the road to divorce? Can it be too much of an adjustment for a couple that has been married almost a decade? Tamar has always worried think about Vince’s weight and health even prior to his 40 day hospital stay and induced coma back in 2012 from having blood clots throughout his lungs. Scary for any wife! She really did not expect him to go along and have this very risky and dangerous weight loss surgery but he did what he wanted to do. For one thing, it doesn’t appear to be jealousy on Tamar’s end as much as it is her feelings being hurt by his decision to go on ahead with the surgery without her approval.
