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. Not only did she star on that season, but she also was crowned the winner. This was significant not only due to her being victorious, but she was also the first African-American to win a Big Brother in the United States.

So what’s going on with Braxton now and what’s the sad news?

Was It A Suicide Attempt!?

According to TMZ, law enforcement in Los Angeles, California received a 911 call last night. The call was placed from the Ritz Carlton Hotel (where Braxton has been residing in one of their residences) in downtown Los Angeles, and the person who called 911 reported that the person they were calling about had attempted suicide.

The report goes on to note that when the emergency medical technicians arrived, they found Braxton unconscious inside her room.

TMZ does note that police spoke with Braxton’s boyfriend, David Adefeso. When they spoke to him, he informed them that Braxton may have overdosed on a combination of pills and alcohol. 

An insider who spoke to TMZ also detailed that Adefeso informed the cops that he had spoken to Braxton earlier in the day and she was upset and threatened suicide. 

Braxton’s Family Speaks Out

After the reports broke, Braxton’s family took to the media to make the following statement: “Tamar has had a very tough and emotional day – more information will be coming in the next few days. Please pray for her.”
