There is sad breaking news coming from star Tamar Braxton‘s direction this morning with reports that she has attempted suicide.
Who Is Tamar Braxton?
Before getting into the news, let’s review who Tamar Braxton is.
Braxton began her career in 1990 as one of the founding members of The Braxtons. They were a Rhythm & Blues group. While they didn’t last long as a group, Tamar’s sister Toni broke out as a big star in the 90’s with a few hits.
While Braxton has made some music herself, she also became well known for the WE TV reality series Braxton Family Values. This show has been running since 2011, and has chronicled the lives of her and her sisters.
Braxton also was a co-host on the hit talk show The Real. She participated in the talk show from 2013-2016. During her stint on The Real, Braxton received two daytime Emmy Awards.
Speaking of awards, along her career she has won four awards (one being a BET award and three Soul Train Music Awards).
In 2019, Braxton went on to gain more reality television notoriety. This was due to her starring on the second season of Celebrity Big Brother.
