Tamar Braxton Is Now Alert & Responsive After Possible Suicide Attempt, Reportedly Being Transferred To Mental Health Facility
Tamar Braxton is reportedly now awake and alert, according to sources, and has been transferred to another hospital in Los Angeles that has top specialists in the field of mental health, including depression and anxiety. It was previously reported that Tamar Braxton was hospitalized after allegedly attempting to take her own life.
Tamar Braxton’s release from the hospital comes after new reports state Tamar Braxton wrote in an email to executives at Wetv weeks ago that their actions made her consider taking her own life.
Her email was said to be a response to one the network sent to its employees, including the singer and reality star. The email was reportedly an attempt to support the black community amid heightened racial sensitivity in the wake of the death of George Floyd. Tamar Braxton’s email to Wetv reportedly read,
“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 continued, reportedly likening the network to
“cruel white slave masters who once chained our forefathers, and the oppressive police forces that now terrorize our communities.”
“I hope those ratings were worth it because you succeeded in destroying a great black family.”
In the email, Tamar allegedly revealed 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.”
The Love and War singer went on to claim 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!”
“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 representative for the network stated,
“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.”
This news comes on the heels of a vocal Tamar Braxton revealing in another shot against the network, that her family gets paid far less than what the Kardashian family gets paid. She tweeted:
She also stated in a separate tweet that it’s not about the pay, rather “feeling like a slave”. She tweeted:
Let’s continue to send our prayers to Tamar and the entire Braxton family.
