Tiny Harris & Tamar Braxton's Friendship On The Rocks After Xscape Hires Vincent Herbert As Manager?

Xscape reunited this year and have kicked off their reunion tour, recently hiring Tamar Braxton's estranged husband Vincent Herbert as their new manager. Will the decision affect Tiny and Tamar's friendship?

Tiny and Tamar have been friends for nearly twenty years, but have experienced some rocky times in the past. Braxton is the godmother of Tiny’s daughter, Heiress Harris, while Tiny serves that role for Braxton's son, Logan.

Harris and Braxton's friendship hit a snag in 2016, after Tamar was fired from "The Real." Tiny had shown support for friends that appeared on the talk show, which obviously felt like a betrayal to Tamar. It wasn't long before Tamar let her feelings be known. 

Tiny and Tamar finally reconciled over the summer, putting their differences aside. Fans are concerned that Xscape's decision to hire Tamar's estranged husband as their manager will cause problems in their friendship.

Some fans find it strange that Tiny would hire Vincent, who was accused of physically abusing Tamar.

Follower virgo824 commented, "Messy, messy & petty! Vincent has beat up on your friend and you hire him to manage you?! And you probably know ALL the details and this is what you rock with? It would be like Tamar hanging out with one of T.I.’s side pieces - messy!"

Fan gross1726 wrote, "That’s just wrong...thought they were Tamar friends?"

And missk614 adds, "I would imagine that it was a very awkward conversation between Tiny and Tamar. They are going through a divorce and now he is managing her best friend's group?"



The move does raise eyebrows about the status of Tiny and Tamar's friendship. The two women were said to have grown even closer as Tiny has shown support for Tamar as she goes through her divorce. 

My baby H Loves her TT👶🏻... until me and ya mama @majorgirl laughed the ENTIRE flight 😂😂 #goodtimes❤️🐦

In October, Tamar spoke out about her friendship with Tiny. She confirmed they had reconciled and are in a good place now.

The "Braxton Family Values" star shared, "Me and Tiny are stronger than ever. We have definitely reunited. Especially as far as the kids are concerned."


It will be interesting to see how Xscape's decision to hire Tamar's estranged husband as their manager will play out. 

The group recently announced they hired Herbert as their manager. Xscape also confirmed they would become a trio after their reunion tour in January, without Kandi Burruss. The remaining members include LaTocha Scott, Tameka “Tiny” Harris and Tamika Scott.

Tamika recently shared, "We sat down with him, had some food and just talked, like how most business takes place, he just got our vision and he saw the potential in us."


Herbert is best known for managing the careers of his estranged wife, Tamar, and also Lady Gaga in the past. "We love what he did with Tamar and Lady Gaga and we also knew he understood the business," Tiny stated. "We’re really excited."


The group adds that they are not severing ties from current manager Mona Scott-Young, who produced their Bravo reality series and will produce their upcoming biopic in 2018.

"[Mona] is still managing the four of us for the reality show, and TV and film projects. Vincent manages the music," LaTocha explained.

I’m beyond Grateful and humbled. To God be the Glory for all of his blessings and love. 🙏🏽 Even when I think he’s forgotten about me he ALWAYS shows up and shows OUT EVERYTIME!💞

The new trio dropped two new singles, “Dream Killa” and “Wifed Up” on Friday. The singles are the group’s first new tracks since back in 2005.

Kandi, who stars on "Real Housewives of Atlanta", has confirmed she will be parting ways with the group when their tour ends.

The ladies are still currently on their “The Great Xscape Tour,” which is set to continue across North America through Jan. 6.
