Tamar Braxton is defending accusations that she doesn’t pay her employees.
Tamar was working with stylist DiAndre Tristan, but one way or another he ended up on her bad side and she let the world know it in a series of tweets and Instagram photos.
According to the story, DiAndre has been working for free — but decided to get more serious about his business and presented Tamar with a contract & requested to be paid appropriately.
That’s when things went left.
A few days ago, Tamar posted the above photo to Instagram which reads, “I found I was riding for people who couldn’t even walk for me,” with an even more relentless caption:
I HAD to repost because I will NEVER be in THIS position again!! My mama says u FIND a FOOL you USE a fool! Know peoples intentions FIRST! Watch who they are friends with…if that’s not your type of crew then..RUN!!!…watch how they treat others…do they talk about others???then ..they talk about YOU too! BeCAREFUL who u TRUST & have around you!! Some people are JUST there you USE you!! They will LIE,CHEAT & STEAL!!!…then they move on to the NEXT! Watch who calls u #sis #fam #cousin #girl when they AINT!! 9x out of 10 they out for THEM!! Keep yo ??? on yo?? & your PURSE! #no#allTRUTH
Shortly after, DiAndre popped back on Twitter serving an entire rainforest full of shade by posting a video of Tamar’s sister Toni Braxton performing along with the caption:
There will never be another with so much Style, Grace, ELEGANT, Sex appeal, and Effortlessly Owning The Stage, Yes GAWD! I love this woman #Isiton ##Yesitis #Thereslevelstothisgreatness
Tamar is adamant about the reports of her not paying her stylist are completely untrue.
Whew, we don’t know what to make of all this.
Hopefully they’re able to work things out privately without dragging each other (any further) on social media. If not, it should be noted that DiAndre is now and has been working with Robin Roberts…and with her new $14 million a year deal, he’s probably getting paid appropriately over there.
