EXCLUSIVE UPDATE: Tamar Braxton's Husband Vincent Herbert Now Stable & Talking After Collapsing From Blood Clot
Vincent Herbert, husband to Tamar Braxton and producer and label head for Lady GaGa, collapsed while in New York City last Friday. Following yesterday's reports saying he was in serious condition and on a respirator, we've confirmed, as of today, he's more stable.
While in NYC for music related meetings this past Friday, Vincent collapsed and was rushed to the hospital for treatment. He was initially in the Intensive Care Unit. Our production source for the "Braxton Family Values" show confirmed to TheYBF.com that while the situation was indeed serious at one point, Vince is more stable at this time, and even talking to friends and family who are currently with him at the hospital.
Our source confirms it was indeed a pulmonary embolism, a blood clot in the lungs that can easily be fatal. Tennis star Serena Williams also suffered from this extremely serious condition following her foot surgery several months ago.
It has not been reported yet the exact cause of the embolism.
We're told Tamar was extremely distraught by the whole situation, and hasn't left her husband's bedside in New York. And we've also learned the We TV reality cameras were (and are still) rolling, since all 19 episodes of the upcoming season of "Braxton Family Values" (which kicks) off next week have not yet been taped. So we will likely see this whole emergency play out on tv.
Tamar and Vince were slated to attend President Obama's $35,000 per plate fundraising dinner this past Monday at Chief Creative Officer of Pixar/Disney John Lasseter's L.A. home with Will Smith and other A-Listers. But since Vince is still hospitalized in NY, they skipped out.
Tomorrow's scheduled reality show press dinner in L.A. has been postponed.
Toni Braxton also dropped her brother-in-law Vince as her manager recently, and is now being managed by Baumgarten Management & Productions, Inc. with publicity headed by The Chamber Group.
