Roommates, Tamar Braxton has spoken out publicly for the very first time following her hospitalization for a suicide attempt. Tamar took to her Instagram account to post a lengthy message regarding what led her to attempt to take her life—and she was very open about reality TV being the blame.
Fans of Tamar Braxton were incredibly worried when news spread that she had attempted suicide by taking a collection of pills. Luckily, her boyfriend David Adefeso found her just in time and called 911 before she was transported to the hospital. She was then moved to a mental health treatment facility.
Tamar’s partial statement reads as follows:
“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 I felt just only a week ago.
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.
I wrote 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. My cry for help went totally ignored. I was no longer living, I was existing for the purpose of a corporations gain and ratings, and that killed me.”
As we previously reported, WE TV recently announced that Tamar’s upcoming reality docuseries, “Get Ya Life!” has been postponed until September following her hospitalization.
