R&B singers Tamar Braxton and Tank took social media users by surprise after they went head-to-head all Saturday on Instagram.
Braxton revealed on social media that her band-mates were a no-show for a scheduled performance in Philadelphia. The star fired them all after claiming they ditched her at the last minute on her new tour.
One of the band members slammed the Braxton sister for not receiving payment for a previous show and Tank pettily chimed in and jumped to the players’ defense. He wrote, “[Tamar Braxton] I have the band and i’m not letting them go!..🤣🤣🤣. On some real shit though sis don’t attack these kids on social media… I’m not here to attack you on social media either just here to protect my guy’s professionalism and credibility on social media since they were attacked here..🤷🏽♂️”
@tamarbraxton i have the band and i’m not letting them go!..🤣🤣🤣. On some real shit though sis don’t attack these kids on social media. @Von_cocapt @jboohill @aj4rmduval @zamarworld are good guys and they’d never intentionally miss a gig period. If someone in your camp is telling you something different, which i know they are, it’s a lie. I’m not here to attack you on social media either just here to protect my guy’s professionalism and credibility on social media since they were attacked here..🤷🏽♂️ #RnBMoney #TheGeneral
Braxton clapped back at Tank and said that her “receipts don’t lie.” She also said it was “unprofessional” of the band to miss her show and told the “When We” singer that it’s simply “not your business.” She added, “How about you protect your own business suga.. worry about that sweet Tank. I dont know why you are coming at me? But in my opinion this post was a b***h a** move but you do like to have your a** ate.”
The two continued to spar it out on Instagram and Tank claimed to have text messages between Braxton’s former band and her husband Vincent Herbert. He added that she shouldn’t “get out of character” and called her a “nasty a**.”
Nevertheless, Braxton got the last word and responded back that she’d already “won!” and to “Stay out of her business.”
In the midst of working to get back on tour, the “Braxton Family Values” star revealed a few weeks ago that she’s struggled with body dysmorphia since the age of 11 and encouraged others to always be their true selves.
“Can you believe I thought I was FAT??!? (I’d sure like to be that size now lord),” she captioned on an Instagram photo. “It’s so funny how you see yourself then, and how it parallels to now. (confession) I STILL struggle with body dysmorphia to THIS DAY all because a record executive told me I was too fat at 11 to be more of a ‘commercial’artist.. only to end up having BIG R&B hits TODAY!” She added that “people will try to turn you into whatever they want you to be for their benefit.”
There is nothing like going to your Parents house and finding old 1996 HORRIBLE pictures of yourself!! 😩🤣Can you believe I thought I was FAT??!?🤦🏽♀️(I’d sure like to be that size now lord🙏🏽) this was back in the day when I shot the “so many ways” video with my then skinner sisters @trinabraxton1 @itowandabraxton ❤️it’s so funny how you see yourself then,and how it parallels to now. (🙋🏽♀️ confession) I STILL struggle with body dysmorphia to THIS DAY all because a record executive told me I was too fat at 11 to be more of a “commercial “ artist.. only to end up having BIG R&B hits TODAY!!! ( which was fine with me cause thats how I saw myself THEN in the FIRST place)…The Same as thing goes for me and my sisters…. We STARTED having major OVER THE TOP family issues because some network wanted to compete with old love and hip hop numbers, And felt that our family was to “perfect” and un relatable 🙄 ( Thats another story)…But only to realize that our problems are JUST like everyone else’s.. AND this BLACK FAMILY IS FINE THE WAY WE ARE!!!! & ☝🏽 I must mention we must be like somebody’s family cause our “boring” family has the LONGEST running BLACK family reality show EVER in HISTORY 🤔….I say all that to say people will try to turn you into whatever they want you to be for their benefit! When are you going to be who YOU truly are for your OWN benefit? We put ourselves through hell to be however someone else see’s us..how about if you are going to work at something, WORK ON YOU FOR YOU and have the faith that GOD made you this way on purpose! Because really what other’s see is your greatness and want to TRICK you into thinking otherwise to USE you!! (See previous post) This is why having Esteem of YOURSELF is so important!! Because once you decide to choose YOU and what YOU like??….. maaaaaaaannn watch out!! Here you come!!! Do yourself a favor and STAY 👏🏽 on👏🏽 they👏🏽 NECK!!! #thatsall #haveablessedday🙏🏽
