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..🤷🏽♂️”
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.”
