Tiny Harris, aka Tameka Cottle, is revealing how her close friend Tamar Braxton is really doing after filing for divorce from her husband of almost nine years, Vince Herbert, last week. Despite their past feud drama, Tiny opened up about how Tamar’s coping and revealed that she’s been in constant contact with the Braxton Family Values star.
As for how Tamar has been dealing with the split since it was made public last week, Harris said that she’s now “doing okay” but is, understandably, having a pretty tough time right now.
“You know, it’s a time for her, but she’s making it,” Tiny continued of Tamar in a new interview with Hollywood Life. “There’s a ton of people that love her, so she’s fine.”
Tiny also spoke about her group Xscape hitting the road with Braxton and Monica for their joint tour, “The Great Xscape Tour,” in November and confirmed that both she and her bestie are excited to head around the country together despite all the marriage drama.
“This will be our first time ever getting to tour together,” she said of their upcoming tour, which currently has 22 stops scheduled around the U.S. this year and next. “We’re so excited for it!”
But while the singer is revealing how Tamar is doing right now amid her divorce, Harris has been having a whole lot of relationship drama of her own over the past few months after calling it quits with her husband of seven years, rapper T.I.
The couple announced their divorce on the finale of their VH1 reality show T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle back in May after Tiny accused her husband of cheating, though they’ve been surrounded by reconciliation rumors ever since.
Tiny was also on hand to give Tamar some marriage advice in the new teaser for Season 5 of her reality show, Tamar & Vince.
Shortly after their divorce was confirmed, a teaser for the upcoming season of the WEtv reality show showed Braxton and Harris having a heart-to-heart about the state of her marriage to Vince.
Tiny then told her longtime friend that she needs to get a new manager before she gets a new husband after Braxton confessed that she wasn’t happy in her relationship. Vince has served as his wife’s manager for the past several years ever since they were introduced by Tamar’s sister Toni Braxton in 2003.
The clip then ends with the “My Man” singer taking off her wedding ring.
But it wasn’t just all about the marriage drama prior to the divorce confirmation, as Tamar and Tiny also mended their years-long feud in the trailer after the twosome got into some serious beef earlier this year.
The twosome threw a whole lot of shade in each other’s direction on social media back in July after both accused the other of failing to be attentive to their godchildren. Tiny is godmother to Tamar’s son Logan, while Tamar is godmother to Tiny’s daughter, Heiress.
However, the friends then reconciled earlier this year after their feud began following Tamar’s firing from the daytime talk show The Real back in May of 2016. Braxton unfollowed her longtime friend across social media after Tiny promoted the daytime series.
Braxton even shared a sweet photo of herself spending time with Harris and Heiress on Instagram last month, proving that their beef is now firmly in the past.
“My baby H Loves her TT,” she captioned the photo, which showed her feeding a bottle to Tamar’s youngest child. “Until me and ya mama @majorgirl laughed the ENTIRE flight #goodtimes.”
Tamar & Vince Season 5 is set to debut on WEtv on November 9.
