Yesterday the topic of discusson on the new daytime talk show The Real was prenups! Are they necessary when it comes to marriage if you plan on living happily ever after? The conversation started aftter the ladies chatted about Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon’s divorce drama and their prenup agreement.
Mariah is allegedely worth $500 million and her soon to be ex husband Nick Cannon is said to be worth $20 million. Tamar stated that with the money that Mariah has in the bank she understands why Nick had to sign a prenup.
However when it came to her own marraige with music executive Vincent Herbert she revealed that they didn’t sign a prenup before walking down the aisle. Tamar stated that when her and Vincent decided to get married they both agreed that divorce would never be an option.
“People become unrecognizable when you’re going through a breakup. I remember my mother saying that my father became unrecognizable and this is a person that she’s been with since she was 15 years old,” Tamar said, while noting that she understands exactly why Mariah would have an extensive prenup with Nick.
“I think that when you have the kind of shiny, old coins that Mariah has-she has some old crinkled up 100 dollar bills that we ain’t seen in 30 years-you kinda have to protect yourself. Not saying that Nick is a guy-digger; he’s not a guy-digger at all…he’s not that kind of dude, but when you got the kinda wealth as Mariah, you kinda have to protect yourself.”
As for why she and Vince never signed a prenup, Tamar said that it’s because she and her husband both started from the bottom and rose to success together, so at the time of their marriage a prenup just wasn’t necessary.
“At the end of the day, my parents built what they have now together. I think I took that into my own marriage,” she said.
However, Tamar also vowed never to get a divorce, unlike the fate her parents suffered from.
“Vincent and I, we don’t have a prenup because when we got married, we had a discussion and we discussed it. Divorce is not an option. So, that will always be the last, last, last, last of the resort,”
