Tina Campbell, one half of the the Grammy Award-winning gospel music duo, is speaking up about her husband's past infidelities that made her think about becoming violent.
Campbell, 39, appears with her sister and fellow groupmate Erica as the June cover girls of Ebony magazine. Although the younger Campbell sister is used to revealing the details of her life on the WE tv reality show "Mary Mary," she is uncovering something that may be shocking to fans in the magazine-- her husband's past infidelity.
"Once I became aware [of the affair], I initially wanted to kill my husband …I was considering adjusting the will, the living trust and all that kind of stuff," Campbell said of her husband. "I did physically try to stab him. Several times … I never got to the point of physical harm, not really, but my words … My words hurt."
Campbell's husband Teddy Campbell, 38, is a gospel drummer who has also worked as the percussionist for "The Tonight Show" with Jay Leno.
Although some people may criticize Campbell's revelation about her private life, the pair has made it clear that they were not bothered by the speculation when they decided to broadcast their lives on television.
"We don't really take time to respond to critics that much because we'd be talking about something every single day," Erica told Gospel Talk online radio host Mona Austin last year. "When there is something that genuinely hurts people or something that genuinely causes people to go 'wow' then I'll respond to that."
Last year, the group called in to Gospel Talk radio online to speak about the challenges of maintaining their life as a group while having individual families.
"It is very challenging having two very filled lives that are individual lives," Tina told Gospel Talk. "We don't have a life of Mary Mary we have a life of Erica and Tina and our husbands and our homes and they're very different. So it can be very challenging trying to maintain one unit that's like a marriage when we're already married at home. So it's hard."
The group announced that Erica would work on some solo material while Tina spends time with her family, but fans can catch more of the gospel duo and their family during the upcoming third season of their reality television series "Mary Mary." In the June issue of Ebony, fans of the singers will also find out more about why Tina decided to avoid divorce and work things out in her marriage.
