Love was in the air for Tamar Braxton and Jeremy “JR” Robinson, but it wasn’t meant to be. Less than a year after falling in love and getting engaged on Queen’s Court, Tamar and JR have split. JR announced the news on his Instagram Story on October 2.

“So many questions. So many assumptions. I want to answer all that I can with respect. Yes, Tamar and I are no longer together,” his statement began. “I ended the relationship to focus on getting back to positive energy and being a better person.”

He continued, “What happened and why — that’s our private place. No, I never cheated. No, I wasn’t there when she was at her mother’s place when her car was burglarized. No, I never cared about fame. Who reveals their most embarrassing moments in their life to find fame. I have always represented famous people and the truth is I was in an amazing place financially and mentally. I turned Queen’s Court several times before I gave in. Ultimately, I fell in love and it did not end how I wanted it. So, I want to heal. Tamar and I will always be friends and family for life. Thank you for respecting our privacy.”

JR got down on one knee and proposed to Tamar in the Queen’s Court finale, which aired in March 2023 on Peacock. “I don’t wanna be your friend. I wanna be your husband,” JR told the Braxton Family Values alum. “Tamar… I’m here forever because I don’t see my life without you. And I love you, Tamar. Tamar, will you marry me?” Tamar accepted his proposal, and the show noted that they were “currently planning” their wedding. However, just over six months later, JR and Tamar have called it quits.

JR Has 5 Kids

JR is divorced. He has 5 children with 4 different women. In the Queen’s Court finale, JR was asked about fathering two children with two different women in 2019. “That was a very difficult time,” JR said. “It was a dark time. While I was usually dating, I dated multiple women. And I ended up with two beautiful children. I’ve been as transparent as I can be.” He made sure to note that he is “decent and cordial” with his exes.

JR connected With Tamar Over Lost Loved Ones.

During their initial meeting, JR revealed to Tamar that his mother passed away from cancer. At her funeral, he saw a hummingbird. This struck a chord with Tamar because her sister, Traci, said she would become a hummingbird when she passed away. Traci died in March 2022 after a battle with cancer.
