Tiny Harris Offers a Health Update on Her Best Friend Tamar Braxton: ‘She’s Been Writing Me’
Tiny Harris Speaks on Tamar Braxton’s Well Being: ‘She’s Doing Much Better’
Tiny Harris can’t wait to see her best friend Tamar Braxton! On Thursday, Aug. 6, Tiny did an interview on HollywoodLife’s TVTalk, where she opened up about Tamar’s recovery following the singer and songwriter’s reported suicide attempt.
“She’s been writing me and she seems to be doing better, much better, and I’m just waiting to visit her now. When I get back to L.A., hopefully, I can go see her,” Tiny said. “I’m not going to rush her. I want her to be well and I want her to be ready to see everybody or see me, but yeah, she’s doing much better though. I can say that,” she added.
The “T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle” reality star then went on to say that Tamar should only film her family reality show “Braxton Family Values” and her upcoming docuseries “Tamar Braxton: Get Ya Life” if she’d like. “I only think it should go on if Tamar is willing and ready and she wants to do it. I don’t feel like it should be forced. If she’s not well, if she’s not happy,” she explained.
“She should be able to live her life the way that she wants to live her life. I also feel like when you’re doing these shows you have to find a company that loves and respects you as people and a family first and when you find that I think you can find a good balance if you find someone that really cares about the well being of your family,” she added. “Sometimes we get into business with people that don’t know us and it’s all about the ratings and it’s all about what’s good for the network.”
On Thursday, July 16, an ambulance rushed Tamar to a hospital after her boyfriend David Adefeso reportedly called 911 to say he’d found the mother of one unresponsive while at the Ritz-Carlton Residences in downtown Los Angeles. He told the dispatcher that Tamar had taken an unknown amount of prescription pills that she uses to treat depression, had been drinking, and suggested that she was issues with “the network,” implying We TV.
Shortly after the incident, Tamar wrote a lengthy statement on Instagram, where she claimed she was “betrayed, taken advantage of, overworked, and underpaid” by the network. She also suggested that We TV exploited her life for ratings, insinuating that working in reality television pushed her to end her own life. We TV was reported to have let the “Love and War” artist out of her contract one day after her post.
Tamar reportedly was transported to a hospital specializing in mental health one week after her purported self-harming act and is currently “receiving the best available medical attention.”
