Tamar Braxton Talks New Single 'My Man,' Opens Up About Forgiving Her Father for Cheating On Her Mother
By Latifah Muhammad
Tamar Braxton is getting candid about forgiveness.
On her new single, "My Man," Braxton chronicles the infidelity that led to an emotional breakup of a marriage, though she isn’t sharing her own personal story. Instead, the happily married singer pulled inspiration from her parents’ divorce.
The 40-year-old singer recently dished on how she forgave her father, Michael Conrad Braxton Sr., for cheating on her mother, Evelyn Braxton, to Hip Hollywood.
"You have to realize it is not your relationship," she said of maintaining a strong bond with her father. "And it doesn’t have anything to do with you. It's not your business. Although you are the product of the relationship, it’s not your relationship."
She even previewed "My Man" for her dad, and he loved it.
"Listen, I was I not going to put out this record without letting my parents hear it first," Tamar explained. "So I played it for my dad and his reaction was a little different. He was actually a little flattered. He was like, ‘You wrote a song about me?' without listening, listening to the lyrics. I’m sure now he's probably thinking differently."
