*Apparently, Tamar Braxton isn’t trying to lighten her skin to be white looking, as some suspect. She’s actually suffering from Vitiligo.

Her husband, Vince Herbert, took up for her and explained that she’s not bleaching her skin or undergoing gobs of plastic surgery.

“Actually, Tamar has the same thing that Michael Jackson had,” said Vince referring to the disease that strips the pigmentation from skin.

Addressing all the rumors regarding plastic surgery and that good stuff, Tamar denies it all.

“I just want to know what time do I have to do that. It’s just been crazy. If you really think about it, we’ve been shooting ‘Braxton Family Values’ for two years and then in between that it was ‘Tamar & Vince,’ and now we’re back into production with ‘Braxton Family Values.’ So, ‘When did she change her face?’ I just think I grew up and I don’t look the same that I did when I was 19,” she told Bossip.com.
