Tamar Braxton (@tamarbraxtonher)–CHEATING? Is It Splitsville for The Youngest Braxton & Her Hubby, Vince Herbert?

2016 definitely has not been a good year for Tamar Braxton! First she gets fired from The Real and now it looks like she and her husband of eight years, music producer and manager, Vince Herbert, are headed to towards divorce AND infidelity on Tamar’s part is cited as the reason!

Tamar and Vince’s marriage is in jeopardy — to say the least.

Sources exclusively tell lovebscott.com that the reason for the split is because Tamar’s been cheating on her husband with another high-profile man for a while. Vince had been suspicious of his wife’s infidelity for quite some time and hired a private detective to find out all the details — and he found out EVERYTHING.

We hear the Vince confronted Tamar and they had BIG blowout in front of two other people. It got so heated that they ended up cutting everyone in the room a nice little check to keep quiet.

We also hear that there’s a good chance this could affect her current and future shows as a way to avoid having to speak on the drama.

To top it all off — Vince allegedly wants full custody of their little boy. “He doesn’t know who Tamar is anymore. He says she’s not the same woman he married eight years ago,” said the source. “She’s too busy going on vacations to worry about the drama at home. He has the baby and that’s the only thing he’s concerned about.

We really hate to see the demise of any marriage, but we really would like to know who Tamar’s “high profile man” is. Let’s also remember Love B. Scott was the first site to break news about Tamar’s termination from The Real and more recently Wendy Williams losing her Chevrolet sponsorship. We will keep you posted as more details unfold!

Don’t Be A “Justin Bieber” (@justinbieber), Cover Your Tattoos With Ease!

Recently, Justin Bieber opened up to GQ Magazine about the tattoos on his body. One particular body art caught the eyes of many…the tattoo of Selena Gomez.

This is my ex-girlfriend. So, I kind of try to cover her face up with some shading; but, people still know.

Now, we all know that Justin is not the only person who has unwanted tattoos. Many have or had tattoos that no longer bring them joy. Laser removal is (of course) the permanent option for tattoo extermination. But, that option is so dog-on expensive!

Don’t be a Justin! With the power of makeup, body art lovers can successfully cover up their tattoos for a temporary and satisfying moment.

Caitlyn Jenner (@Caitlyn_Jenner) to Become Face of MAC Cosmetics (@MACcosmetics)!

Caitlyn Jenner must be having the best week ever! First, she makes her debut on the cover of Vanity Fair. Next, she’s awarded with the Arthur Ashe Award for Courage at this year’s ESPY’s, and now she’s reportedly going to be the new face of MAC Cosmetics.

A source told Page Six:

“They’ve been debating the pros and cons and whether it would be a good fit or not. There’s a camp that’s so excited and another that’s a bit more cautious.”

Page Six also ran into John Demsey, Estée Lauder’s group president, during the CFDA Awards this past Monday where he shared his thoughts about Caitlyn’s Vanity Fair cover.

image

“It was simply amazing, iconic, epic, disruptive, bold, glamorous.There’s never been someone with that level of celebrity who’s ever done something so bold and so visible in public, and it’s done very elegantly and glamorously.”

John Demsey also signed Kendall Jenner as the face of Estée Lauder.

So, will we be seeing Caitlyn Jenner in MAC commercials and print ads? Do you think America is ready for such a high level stepping stone given the controversy Caitlyn has dealt with throughout this whole ordeal?

Comment below and tell us if you think making Caitlyn the face of MAC will help or hurt their brand.
