Here's How Much Tamar Braxton Is Really Worth

Tamar Braxton has had a roller coaster of a career since she started making music in the early '90s with her four sisters, Toni, Traci, Towanda, and Trina. Tamar has a big, bold personality that has been on full display on the reality series The Braxtons, currently in its seventh season, as well as Tamar and Vince, her spin-off show with her former husband, which ended in 2017 after five seasons. 

Tamar has proven herself to be successful as a singer, performer, reality TV star, and even a daytime talk show host (even though that last gig didn't last the long haul). She's even tried her hand at acting in music videos and in the 2020 film True To The Game 2 alongside Vivica A. Fox. With all those streams of revenue, the Love and War singer should be rolling in dough, right? Let's see what all these ventures are really paying the youngest Braxton sister.

Her music career had a rocky start

After being a part of a trio with her sisters Trina and Towanda Braxton, Tamar Braxton went on to begin her solo career with a debut self-titled album in 2000 under Dreamworks Records. The album was a commercial failure, and Tamar was later dropped from the label. Like many younger siblings, Tamar turned to her big sister Toni for a bit of assistance. She appeared on a few of Toni's solo albums as a backup vocalist and co-writer, including the popular 2001 hit More than a Woman and 2005's Libra.

Tamar bounced between labels until she landed at Epic Records in 2013, just after the release of her second album, Love and War, in 2012. The album's title track was a hit on the Billboard charts, spending nine weeks at number one on the Adult R&B Songs chart, peaking at 57 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and reaching number 13 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.

The album was a commercial success on the charts both nationally and internationally, and Tamar used the momentum from her music to jump into her next career venture.

She was booted from The Real

Tamar Braxton joined the cast of the daytime talk show The Real in 2013, alongside Tamera Mowry, Jeannie Mai, Loni Love, and Adrienne Bailon. After two seasons on the award-winning show, Braxton was fired. Per Daily Mail, the show's executives received negative feedback from focus groups, identifying her as "ghetto" which affected advertising sales and segment placement. She was also reportedly difficult to work with on set and had frequent outbursts. According to a source on set, Braxton got really upset on the set of her final show in May 2016 after she lost a game.

"Producers had to heavily edit the segment to make it presentable to air on TV," the source told Daily Mail, "but the sponsor was on set for the segment and witnessed it all." Love, who felt she received a lot of the blame for Braxton's firing, told Entertainment Tonight in June 2020 that she has reached out to Braxton to "clear the air," but hasn't received a response.

Despite the continuous drama of The Real, Braxton holds a net worth of $3 million as of June 2020 (per Celebrity Net Worth) and just premiered a new VH1 show, To Catch a Beautician, where she and hairstylist Johnny Wright put stylists through a rigorous boot camp following disgruntled client encounters. Looks like Tamar Braxton found another money bag that's already receiving much praise.
