Vince Herbert Loses Lawsuit, Has To Pay $3.7 Million To Sony


It seems like Tamar Braxton and Vince Herbert are in the news a lot lately, and the latest news has to with money. As reported by TMZ, Sony just won on a lawsuit stemming from an advance given to Herbert in 2013. The music executive was given an advance from Sony to find five new artists —but Braxton was the only artist he brought on with the deal. 

In lieu of falling short of the deal and moving from Sony to Interscope, Herbert was paying back the remaining advance, up until a point. Then Sony sued. Because Herbert failed to respond to the lawsuit, the judge issued a default judgment in the amount of $3.7 million. 

This news comes just weeks after Herbert was involved in a car accident that totaled his car and put him in the hospital. 

On Monday, Braxton announced that after her next album and tour, she will no longer put out music to focus on her family. The 40-year-old doubled down on this news with Entertainment Tonight.

“There are a lot of things that I want to do, and a lot of things that are in the works,” she tells ET. “There’s a lot of things that are going on in my relationship and me being close to this music industry, and whatever I can do to eliminate all of the stress and problems off of my relationship, I would rather do that.”
