After Firing Rumors, Remy Ma Breaks Down Her Working Relationship w/ Vince Herbert
Over the past few months, there’s been lots of speculation about Remy Ma’s professional relationship with highly respected music executive Vince Herbert. While most people initially learned about Vince when he appeared on “Braxton Family Values” with his soon-to-be wife Tamar Braxton, many viewers had no clue Vince’s name carried so much weight in the music industry.
For those who don’t know, not only did Vince manage his wife, he also managed Lady Gaga and a number of other heavy hitters in the music industry. But despite his undeniable success, there are still a number of artists who Vince didn’t see the same results with.
Unfortunately, Remy Ma is reportedly one of those artists. For a while, it’s been rumored that Remy Ma actually fired Vince, but now she’s opening up about what really happened.
Settin’ The Record Straight:
According to The Jasmine Brand, Vince’s name was mentioned during one of Remy Ma’s recent interviews. When asked about her professional relationship with him, she revealed something most people may not have known – they never had an official contract for Vince to manage her.
While Remy Ma’s life was coming together, unfortunately, Vince’s was falling apart. She admitted that although she would have loved to work with him, he needed to handle his personal problems in order to be the best manager he could be for her. She explained how she felt Vince’s personal life would ultimately affect his professional life, which is why they came to a mutual agreement for him to fall back.
“Well, me and Vince never had any official paperwork. He wanted to come onto my project and help me with my project – I signed a really great deal with Columbia Records – and when all of that was happening, he started going through his own personal things. Just knowing how I am with my husband, to me, family comes before everything, and I wanted him to be able to put a 150% into me, but I also wanted him 250% into his relationship and things going on at home. It was kind of like a mutual decision for him to be like, ‘I’m gone do this over here.’”
By now, most fans know Vince and his wife Tamar have had a rough two years and their marriage has been on a downward spiral for quite some time. From domestic violence reports to alleged affairs and custody battles, Tamar and Vince have been on an emotional rollercoaster.
Back in February, reports surfaced about Vince and Remy Ma’s clash. At the time, it was reported that Vince had repeatedly dropped the ball on basic manager duties. In the midst of the turmoil he faced at home, he was reportedly forgetting small ends that needed to be tied such as “booking studio time, and scheduling performances,” according to TMZ.
On the other side of the spectrum, things probably couldn’t be better for Remy Ma and Papoose. The rap couple has had a relatively good year. As they prepare for their first baby together, they’ve been makin’ lots of business moves. From music to reality TV, Remy and Papoose are takin’ over the game.
The couple will be featured on the upcoming ninth season of “Love & Hip Hop” and they also have their own reality spinoff “Meet the Mackies” which airs tonight (October 1) on VH1. The season 9 premiere of “Love & Hip Hop” is scheduled for November 26.
