Tamar Braxton

Tamar Braxton is opening up about her July 16 suicide attempt, claiming she wanted to “end my pain and my life,” after years in the “toxic” reality TV business. 

She’s speaking out about her healing process and divulging more details about her downward spiral.
On Thursday, Braxton, 43, revealed in a lengthy statement on Instagram that she attempted suicide after suffering “pain” for the past 11 years while working as a reality TV star.

“Thank you to each and every individual who has prayed for me, thought of me, sent me their love and has showered me with their support. In this present moment, it is my only responsibility to be real with myself and to be real with the ones who truly love me and care for my healing. I have without fail, shared with you my brightest days, and I know that sharing with you what has been my darkest will be the light for any man or woman who is feeling the same defeat Ifelt just only a week ago,” she wrote.

“Every one of us has a desire, whether small or big, to make it out of where we come from to an ideal future place that includes, freedom to be who we choose, security for our children and families, and fortune to share with the ones we love. We believe these things can co-exist with just being happy. I believed that, that as a black woman, as an artist, an influence, a personality I could shape my world, and with whom I believed to be my partners, they could help me share my world,” Braxton continued her IG message.

Braxton went on to say that “over the past 11 years there were promises made to protect and portray my story, with the authenticity and honesty I gave.”

The singer claimed she was “betrayed, taken advantage of, overworked, and underpaid,” prompting her to write “a letter over 2 months ago asking to be freed from what I believed was excessive and unfair. I explained in personal detail the demise I was experiencing.”

Braxton said that her cry for help was ignored.

“It was my spirit, and my soul that was tainted the most. There are a few things I count on most to be, a good mother, a good daughter, a good partner, a good sister, and a good person,” Braxton said.

“Who I was, begun to mean little to nothing, because it would only be how I was portrayed on television that would matter. It was witnessing the slow death of the woman I became, that discouraged my will to fight,” Braxton wrote.

“The pain that I have experienced over the past 11 years has slowly ate away at my spirit and my mental,” she continued.

WE tv has delayed the premiere of Tamar’s new show until September as she focuses on healing. However, sources say she does not want it to air at all.

Tamar Braxton Accuses WeTV Bosses of Making Her ‘Suicidal’ in Scathing Letter

Tamar Braxton

Tamar Braxton is “alert and responsive” and speaking to her family and doctors following an alleged suicide attempt last week.
According to The Blast, Tamar has been moved to a mental health facility for treatment.
“Out of respect for Tamar’s privacy and that of her family, no additional information is available at this time,” a source told the outlet.

She was rushed to the hospital on Thursday after her boyfriend, David Adefeso, found her unconscious in their apartment at the Ritz Carlton Residences.
We previously reported, Braxton sent an email to her WEtv bosses accusing them of destroying her family and making her suicidal.
The letter was sent weeks before her suicide attempt, according to Page Six.

The singer and her famous family have appeared on a reality show on the network for more than a decade.

Braxton allegedly detailed her downward spiral in the email seen by Page Six, explaining that her family is in “disarray.”

“We fight with each other, we betray each other, and now we’re physically assaulting each other — all happening because your show [“Braxton Family Values”] has chosen to show the absolute worst side of a strong, independent and successful African American family; a show that I created to showcase a strong Black Family as a beacon of hope for all the young black girls and boys out there; instead you coached and cajoled us into finding the worst in each other,” she wrote.

She went on to call the network “cruel white slave masters who once chained our forefathers, and the oppressive police forces that now terrorize our communities,” she added, “I hope those ratings were worth it because you succeeded in destroying a great black family.”

Braxton noted that “the final stake into the heart of my family” was “the day you dug up a secret I’d never shared with anyone, a secret I was so ashamed to talk about that I hid it even from my own mom: the fact that I had been assaulted and raped repeatedly from age 6 to age 16, sometimes multiple times a day.” 

She said the show’s producers “exposed it on your show in front of my entire family and 100 crew members.” She added, “You broke me that day and I considered ending my own life then for the shame I felt!”

Tamar ended the email, “I have news for you! Today, I take my power back. I will no longer tolerate being oppressed. I am asking you to break the chains NOW and LET ME GO I am suffocating! I CAN’T BREATHE!!”

A family insider also claims Tamar was not thrilled that the network selected “Love and Hip Hop” producer Mona Scott Young to work on Braxton’s new show, “Tamar Braxton: Get Ya Life.” 

“Tamar felt ambushed,” said the insider, “She was invited to the network to have a meeting to talk about the show and the premise of the show… and right there sitting down is Mona. The person she said she did not want to work with.”

Scott Young has responded by simply stating, “My thoughts and prayers are with Tamar and her family during this very difficult time.”

Tamar Braxton is reportedly in stable condition following her suicide attempt last week.

Tamar Braxton Hospitalized After Being Found ‘Unresponsive’ – Possible Suicide Attempt

Tamar Braxton was reportedly found unresponsive in her hotel room in downtown Los Angeles after she allegedly tried to commit suicide, 

And her alleged suicide attempt may be as a result of Tamar's precarious financial situation.

We spoke with a person close to Tamar who told us that the singer was "going broke" and possibly facing eviction from her $25,000 a month luxury apartment at the Ritz Carlton Residences where she lives with boyfriend David Adefeso.

The Blast initially reported that David immediately called 911 after finding Braxton unresponsive on Thursday night and told the cops that she had been drinking and had ingested an unknown amount of prescription pills.

It has not been definitively proven as to why Braxton ingested the pills, but sources say that the reality television star and singer was "extremely emotional" due to an ongoing contract dispute with We TV.

Tamar Braxton is apparently going through something. Thursday evening she was rushed to a hospital in Los Angeles on Thursday after being found unconscious.
“There was a medical emergency call generated related to a possible overdose at 9:45 p.m.,” a spokesperson for the Los Angeles Police Department told The Blast. “The person was then transported to a nearby hospital.”
The website said her boyfriend, David Adefeso, found her “unresponsive and sources believe it was a possible suicide attempt.”
LAPD confirmed to The Blast, they received a call around 9:45 P.M. in regard to a 43-year-old female who had a medical emergency listed as a “possible overdose.” Officers are following the woman to the hospital for further investigation.
“Tamar has had a very tough and emotional day,” her rep said in a statement to the website. “More information will be coming in the next few days. Please pray for her.”
Braxton’s hospitalization came on the same day that the trailer was released for her new We tv reality series, “Tamar Braxton: Get Ya Life!”

According to We tv’s description for the show, it follows Braxton as she tries to “turn her life around and take matters into her own hands by sharing her truth in a revealing new docuseries that follows her every move.”
BTW, according to The Blast, Tamar has been extremely emotional due to an ongoing contract dispute with We TV over her new reality show “Tamar Braxton: Get Ya Life.”
Meanwhile, as Sandra Rose notes, Tamar and David’s “Coupled & Quarantined” YouTube series was postponed this week, with a message posted on their page reading:
“Hello Ya’ll Unfortunately, Your girl Tamar is under the weather today and not feeling well so we need to postpone today’s show (Don’t worry it’s not Covid).
She continued:
“We’re sad because we had a great show lined up for you today, but next week’s show is going to be even bigger and better. so sorry for the inconvenience, we know many of you look forward to the show every week. we’ll make it up to you next week.”

@ AA 

I was referring to Whitney Houston, meant Queen of POP...Next. 

Pick an argument over some REAL ISSUES....SMFH

To LU, just would like to say one thing that you posted about Ms. Franklin the Queen of soul. She was not a sacrifice, she was ill with pancreatic cancer that finally took her life. Now on To Tamar, sad that the family allowed reality TV  to scramble the family strong bond up into this mess that geared you towards attempted suicide. As the strong family that she's apart of, I hope she and the family will finally put their lives back together in a more constructive way, removing toxic encounters with TV producers with nothing but high ratings for their shows, by tearing down with negativity. Have Tyler Perry to handle your reality shows.

Ms. Braxton,

Your manfriend or whoever he is to you was set up to be with you to be your HANDLER and to watch over you to make sure that you end up self-destructing in the end, like the King of pop, the Queen of soul, and our strange Prince who have all been sacrificed before you for knowing too much, and SERVING THE WRONG POWER. When you sell your soul, THE FALLEN ANGEL do come back to collect what you signed off on....SELAH
