Real life got in the way of music’s biggest night. Tamar & Vince‘s Thursday, February 25, season 4 finale shows Tamar Braxton revealing why she had to miss the 2016 Grammy Awards at the last minute, as seen in Us Weekly‘s exclusive sneak peek.
The singer, 38, was supposed to attend the awards ceremony on February 15, but instead she ended up spending the day at the ER after husband Vince Herbert‘s arm became swollen and caused him severe pain. Herbert, 47, has a history of pulmonary embolisms, so doctors admitted him to the hospital to run tests.
“So it’s, like, 12:48 in the afternoon, and this is the time I’m supposed to be walking the carpet,” Braxton tells the camera. “I keep getting these tweets and Instagrams about ‘What are you wearing?’ ‘When are you coming?’ ‘We want to see you.’ And I won’t be coming because my husband is …”
“This is just so crazy,” she continues. “I’m not even thinking about a Grammy. I’m more thinking about how Vince is and making sure he walks out of here like I did.”
The past few months have been tough ones for the couple. Braxton underwent a procedure in December for a vascular disorder called thoracic outlet syndrome after doctors found blood clots in her lungs. The health issues forced her to drop out of Dancing With the Stars’ season 21.
Watch the video above to see Braxton react to her husband’s dire situation.
Tamar & Vince airs on We TV Thursdays at 9 p.m. EST.
