Reality star Tamar Braxton has received quite a bit of flack for the color of her skin. After rumors began to swirl about the star bleaching her skin and getting plastic surgery, she responded to the theories during an interview with Bossip, ultimately revealing a skin condition.
Tamar revealed in the interview that she does not bleach her skin. She also denied that she had any work done to her face.
“I just want to know what time do I have to do that,” Tamar said. “If you really think about it, we’ve been shooting Braxton Family Values for two years and then in between that it was Tamar & Vince, and now we’re back into production with Braxton Family Values. So when did she change her face? I just think I grew up and I don’t look the same that I did when I was 19. I don’t think any of us do.”
Tamar’s husband Vince Herbert came to her defense and said she suffered from the same skin disease as Michael Jackson. The King of Pop suffered from vitiligo.
“It just sounds stupid. […] I tell her not to read because its so ignorant, its just not appropriate, its wrong and you can’t satisfy everybody. We know what goes on in our household. I would never be in a relationship with a vain person like that. Actually, Tamar has the same thing that Michael Jackson had.”
