Tamar Braxton-Herbert and son Logan Herbert cover the October edition of Ebony Magazine. In the issue, the singer opens up about her painful struggle with infertility and skin disease Vitiligo, which she says worsened during her pregnancy.
“Anybody with skin issues knows that that’s a very sensitive subject. And that’s why I’ve never shared that I have Vitiligo, because I do. I’ve always had it, since I was a young girl. It’s not as bad as others because everybody has it differently, but I’ve certainly had mine diagnosed. That’s why I tan. People say, “You bleach your skin!” But I tan just so I can have a better tone on my skin, boo!”
“It’s gotten worse since I’ve gotten pregnant. If you shake my hand now, to me it’s more noticeable. But when you get diagnosed with a skin disorder, it’s hard. It does weigh on your self-esteem. It really does. But I’m done defending that. I’m not bleaching my skin and if I was bleaching my skin and I felt like saying so, I would, but for the record, I am not,” Tamar tells the publication.
The songstress credits her husband Vince Herbert for helping her to curb her cravings while she was pregnant. “He’s like, ‘Nope. Don’t do it. You’re gonna be mad.” Vince adds, “Even before the pregnancy, she was very conscious about her weight, so I’m just helping her to be a better person.”
The issue will be on newsstands on September 17th, but you can read parts of the interview HERE.
