She was found by her boyfriend David Adefeso, who called 911 saying that Tamar had been drinking and had taken an unknown amount of prescription pills.
A Spokesperson for the LAPD confirmed that they had received a call around 9:45pm on Thursday night, reporting that a female had a medical emergency listed as a ‘possible overdose.’ According to reports, the ambulances arrived soon after and immediately took the singer to the hospital. Sources have claimed that David believes it was a possible suicide attempt.
Reports have now come in confirming that the 43 year old is in a stable condition but still unconscious. She is currently under a 24-hour watch at the hospital.
Did Tamar hint the alleged suicide attempt?
Hours prior to her hospitalization, Braxton reportedly alluded her alleged suicide attempt in a message sent to various family members on Thursday. In the message Tamar seems to be lamenting about being a ‘slave’ and suggested that the ‘only way out’ of her misery was ‘death.’
“The only way I see out is death”
“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. The only way I see out is death. I will choose that before I continue to [live] like this. Please help me,” concluded Tamar. The message was a screenshot Tamar had taken of a drafted tweet that she never published on her Twitter. According to sources, Tamar’s heartbreaking words received a near immediate response from family members and her boyfriend.
A Representative for Tamar reached out with a message. “Tamar has had a very tough and emotional day. More information will be coming in the next few days. Please pray for her.”
The couple’s Live-stream was cancelled
Fans’ concern for Tamar began on Thursday night, when her and Adefeso’s Live Stream show on Youtube, Coupled & Quarantined, did not air as per schedule. Instead, the channel posted a 10-minute video with a message for fans.
“Hello y’all, 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),” the message began. “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,” the statement continued. “We’ll make it up to you next week.”
Debuting Her New Series
Additionally, On Thursday, WeTV also debuted the new trailer for Braxton’s series, Tamar Braxton: Get Ya Life! It offered fans glimpses of the upcoming series, which explores the star’s journey with motherhood, love and her career, as she records a new album.
In one scene, Braxton is seen saying, “I lost my family, I lost my dreams. It’s time to give myself a shot.” Tamar has a 7 year old son named, Logan, with her ex- husband, Vincent Herbert.
Later in the trailer, Braxton introduces cameras to Adefeso. The couple made their relationship public in April 2019. At the time, Braxton gushed over her new man and even revealed that marriage is “not off the table” with him.
A spokesperson for WeTV said: “Tamar Braxton has been a part of the WeTV family for nearly a decade. We are keeping her and her family in our thoughts and prayers and joining with her fans sending strength and healing at this difficult time.”
