Things have been turbulent lately for the vibrant and outspoken former “Braxton Family Values” reality diva and songstress Tamar Braxton.
Weeks after Braxton being rushed to a Los Angeles hospital after being found unresponsive by her boyfriend, David Adefeso, at the Ritz-Carlton Residences in downtown Los Angeles, the 43-year-old wrote an Aug. 2 thank you message to him on the ’Gram.
“I came here just to say this, and then I’m logging off… if you have ever been in recovery or treatment you know that you reflect on a lot of things…so I couldn’t let another day, another second go by without PUBLICLY Thanking my Love @david.adefeso for saving my life… I’m so grateful,” she wrote for the tribute video caption.
“I was in our home lifeless 😔💔 & I’m sure finding me the way that you did couldn’t have been easy. But know that people coming at you saying all this crazy stuff isn’t easy for me. People have called you every name in the book to deflect from what’s really been going on. Through this entire time, you have held my hand, heard my cries, held me when I have been weak,” the mother of one continued.
Braxton added that Adefeso had had her back, and she won’t allow anyone to disparage him.
“Thank God I’m here and thank God for you ❤️‼️💍,” she concluded her tribute message to him.
Braxton reportedly was drinking and took a substantial amount of prescription pills before Adefeso found her on July 16.
The Blast reported that 911 dispatchers received a phone call around 9:45 p.m. that evening regarding an emergency listed as a “possible overdose.”
Supposedly, Braxton attempted suicide because of a contract disagreement with We TV, the network that broadcasts “Braxton Family Values.”
Allegedly, she sent a drafted tweet to her loved ones before she reportedly attempted to commit suicide.
“I am a slave. I do not own my life. My stories. My pictures. My thoughts or beliefs. I’ve asked my Massa to free me. I’m threatened and punished for it,” she wrote. “The only way I see out is death. I will choose that before I continue to love (sic) like this. Please help me,” she wrote with the praying hands’ emoji.
Braxton’s alleged drafted tweet wasn’t the only hint she left that made many believe something was wrong with the reality diva.
On Twitter, she changed her name to Tamar “Slave” Braxton.
She also responded to a fan on July 13, when the fan mentioned the show became more about drama.
Braxton then responded, writing, “That’s what happens when it’s all white executives having all the power and telling your Black family stories.”
Braxton then added the shrug emoji and wrote, “I WILL get justice for my family and all other Black reality shows with the narrative of ABP (Angry Black People) and negativity. It’s TERRIBLE & I’m tired.”
Reportedly, Braxton is no longer working with We TV.
“As she focuses on her health and recovery at what is clearly a difficult and personal time, we will work with her representatives to honor her request to end all future work for the network. We wish her nothing but the best,” a network spokesperson said in a statement to the Los Angeles Times on Friday, July 31.
The Shade Room posted a purported screenshot of Braxton’s Twitter response to the network on the same day We TV’s statement appeared.
