This week has been lit when it comes to breakups and makeups. If your head has been spinning on who is leaving whom and what is what, you are not alone.
We’ve compiled a list of couples who are either staying together or calling it quits. Between Tamar, Scottie and Laurence, it’s a lot to digest.
Tamar Braxton/Vincent Herbert
Tamar Braxton filed for divorce last week from her husband/manager, Vincent Herbert after 9 years of marriage.
The couple have been hot and cold for some time. This was confirmed by Tamar’s recent interview with Entertainment Tonight where she reveled that she will be retiring from music to “protect” her marriage.
Vince’s recent legal troubles with Sony may have been the final straw, but we’ll never know for sure.
The pair share one son age 4.
The Good: According to sources, Vince wants to reconcile with his beloved Tamar in lieu of a divorce. He is willing to go the extra mile to win his wifey back, but will it work?
Makeup or Breakup: “Breakup. Tamar and Vince have some very clear issues that they need to work through,” says celebrity matchmaker and dating strategist, Jasmine Diaz. “When verbal and physical fights become a common occurrence, it’s time to take a step back and evaluate what is good and healthy for your family. And right now, this isn’t healthy.”
It’s hard to say exactly where these two will land, but we wish them the best.
Scottie Pippen/Larsa Pippen
The relationship that is Scottie and Larsa Pippen is definitely one for the blogs. With reports of Larsa cheating with rapper Future, we were almost certain that this couple was done. The former NBA player filed for divorce back in 2016 after 19 years of marriage.
The couple share 4 children.
Sidebar: Future looks scarily similar to her husband. She allegedly has a type!
The Good: The divorce is off! It seems they’re ready to scrap the B.S. and start over.
Makeup or Breakup: “Makeup! Divorces are tough,” remarked Diaz. “They’ve spent the better part of a year working on their relationship, and that is all one can ask for under these circumstances. Now let’s hope they’ve truly learned something that will keep them together for another 20 years.”
Laurence Fishburne/Gina Torres
Laurence has officially filed for divorce from Gina Torres today after 15 years of marriage. The pair quietly separated in 2015. Little else is known about their relationship other than what was shared in a statement by Torres in September.
Gina has since been spotted with a mystery man looking a little closer than “just friends.”
Laurence and Gina have one daughter.
The Good: There’s nothing good about divorce.
Makeup or Breakup: “Breakup,” says Diaz. “Some relationships simply run its course, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. Laurence and Gina have a mature relationship. You don’t hear about their arguments or any infighting. They tried their best, and it is sadly over. 15 years of marriage is still a success.”
