Tamar Braxton shared the growing pains of being a famous mom with a third-grader following her son Logan Herbertunusual request.
The incident began on May 13, after Braxton informed her Twitter followers that she would be studying at Herbert’s school. In the tweet, she revealed that things took an unexpected turn when the 8-year-old told the singer to dress in her stage clothes.
While saying that Herbert may have arranged a performance for her, Braxton wrote: “I have to read at my baby school and the kid tells me to dress like I want to go on stage. I think he made me sing a selection.”
The 45-year-old capped the post by saying she won’t be performing “Hot Sugar” because it wasn’t age-appropriate. “I promise you it won’t be a big deal for these third grade kids today. They get the control of the sweat suit and a book.”
Braxton also posted a screenshot of her tweet on Instagram a short time later, revealing in the caption that she would have to sabotage what her son was up to by wearing a comfy ensemble with sweat, heels and her “daddy socks.”
She said, “They are your own children by design. I should go with sweats and heels and my daddy socks like my mom always did me. When fans viewed the upload, many were hysterical when they brought up Herbert’s dress code.
“In other words, don’t come to school crazy!”
“Logan said, don’t play mother! Get into your BEST STAGE ‘fit!!’
“Logan said, get up and look good before you come to represent him.”
‘Not like you go on stage! Let me find out Logan is not with the regular clothes! I’m crazy! He gave you a whole dress code!”
Among the earlier comments, others claimed that Herbert followed in his father Vincent Herbert’s footsteps and took on the role of Braxton’s manager. One wrote: “He’s her new manager! That’s what it was built for.” Another said: “He’s booking his first artist!!! Seems like a manager to me.”
Hours after that post, Braxton shared that Herbert also asked her to perform “Hot Sugar,” despite her reluctance in an Instagram story. She wrote, “And asked me to sing Hot Sugar like it was nothing.” No additional details have been released since then about what happened at Herbert’s school.
