Sad news for anyone who loves ‘Braxton Family Values’. Tamar Braxton confirmed that she tried to ‘end’ her ‘pain,’ after experiencing it for ‘the past 11 years.’ Learn more about the singer who is now ‘healing.’

ORIGINAL (7/30/20, 5:13 p.m. ET): Tamar Braxton confirmed that she tried to “end” her life, and is now on a “path to healing.” Tamar was previously found unresponsive in her hotel room and rushed to the hospital on July 16, and the VH1 star broke her silence on the suicide attempt in an Instagram post shared on July 30.

“Over the past 11 years there were promises made to protect and portray my story, with the authenticity and honesty I gave. I was betrayed, taken advantage of, overworked, and underpaid. 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. However the demands persisted. It was my spirit, and my soul that was tainted the most,” Tamar explained at one point in her message, and added elsewhere, “Mental illness is real.” Then, she later wrote, “God’s grace and his mercy on my attempt to end my pain and my life that I am here to utilize my voice.” You can read Tamar’s full statement, here.

4: She’s found love again. David Adefeso, 50, is the man that Tamar started dating about two years ago. They have posted endless pics and videos of their romantic journey together ever since and she’s even hinted about wanting to marry him during an April 2020 interview with Wendy Williams.

5: She’s very, very outspoken. Tamar rarely holds her breath on many personal issues. She went on a Twitter rant in July 2020 about the alleged pay discrepancies between the BFV cast vs. the KUWTK stars. “Are we going to talk about pay…. I 100 percent wrote the [Braxton Family Values] theme song … where is the coin… our show is on Netflix…. where is the coin… 10 years on the air… we make 75 percent LESS than the Kardashians. How come there are no villains on that show,” she wrote on Twitter.

Tamar Braxton Deletes Instagram Denies Being Back With Vincent Herbert

Tamar Braxton went lights out on Instagram after denying that she is back with her estrange husband Vincent Herbert.

The R&B singer was spotted on Tuesday arriving at the LAX with Herbert and their son and that triggered rumors that they are back together. Tamar quickly took to her Instagram to shot down the reports that she is back with her ex after getting him arrested on Christmas Day. She claim that the arrest was caused by a heated argument due to jealousy and intoxication. Fast forward to the second day in the new year and they were spotted traveling together like most civilize family do.

“NOPE! Sorry! Not together but since the craziness the other day, we DID agree to create a better environment for son!!” she wrote on IG. “P.s. we also agreed not to speak on this anymore in public after this! My son can read and he’s not dumb #2018goals #praymystrengthinthelord.”

After writing that on Instagram she then deleted her account. If you go on her profile on IG this is the page you will come across “user not found.” Perhaps a social media break is the best thing for her right now because you just can’t stop the media from writing about your personal life as a celebrity.

Tamar Braxton Exposed Vincent Herbert After Arrest On Christmas

Tamar Braxton and Vincent Herbert divorce is turning into one messy reality TV show.

The R&B singer took to social media last night where she blasts her soon to be ex-husband Vincent Herbert for allegedly getting another woman pregnant and also assaulting her. The music executive was arrested on Christmas Day for spousal assault and has since been released on a $20,000 bond. Tamar Braxton has since clarified the arrest saying it was not from physical abuse, but more from alcohol intoxication and jealousy.

In a statement posted on her Instagram page, Braxton exposed her baby daddy for having another baby with a woman she called the “wh*re.” “Vincent Herbert is Having a baby and his Wh*re decided to let me know about it tonight,” she wrote on IG. “That stupid broke ass wh*re should check public records on Christmas before she goes through with it!! He called back (despite of his protection order) begging and lying…..like he’s hanging out with joe and Rocxi (from BET) oh yeah.. that’s creditable.. no shade.. however, before u judge me know the FACTS!! He’s a real piece of work!”

Tamar Braxton told her fans that 2018 will be a clean fresh start for her and Vincent Herbert will not be a part of her life in the new year. The singer separated from her husband of nine years and filed for divorce back in October of this year. Braxton’s mother recently went public saying that she feared the Herbert would hurt her daughter leaving fans to believe that he is physically abusing her. Because of that assessment, when news of his Christmas Day arrest surfaced online, hardly anyone was too surprised about it, but fortunately, no one was physically hurt.

Vincent Herbert has not responded to the allegations from Tamar, but he did deny her mother’s abuse claims.

Yikes this tea hunty! #TamarBraxton #VincentHerbert
