Tamar Braxton has been transferred to a psychiatric hospital where she will receive “specialized” mental health therapy after she attempted to take her own life by swallowing a handful of pills last week.
The Blast reports the 43-year-old reality TV personality and singer is “alert and responsive” and speaking to her family and doctors.
According to The Blast, Tamar was moved to a mental health facility for treatment of her mental health issues.
“Out of respect for Tamar’s privacy and that of her family, no additional information is available at this time,” a source told the media outlet.
She was rushed to the hospital on Thursday after her boyfriend, David Adefeso, found her unconscious in their apartment at the Ritz Carlton Residences.
In a letter that she sent to WeTv, Braxton, pictured with superstar sister Toni Braxton, called producers of her reality show “cruel” and she blamed them for ruining her family and making her suicidal.
In her letter Braxton said her family was “in disarray” due to the show’s producers.
“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,” Braxton wrote in the letter obtained by The Blast.
Braxton also blamed producers for revealing a dark secret that she never even told her mother.
“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,” she wrote.
“You broke me that day and I considered ending my own life then for the shame I felt!”
Braxton ended the email by pleading with WeTv execs to set her free from “the chains” because she “can’t breathe.”
A source tells Sandrarose.com that Braxton was “upset” over promotional material created by producers of her reality show “Tamar Baxton: Get Ya Life.”
The source said Braxton did not approve of scenes that were used in the reality show’s promotional trailer sent to bloggers on Thursday.
Page Six reached out to the network’s executives for a comment about Braxton’s allegations.
“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,” a WeTV rep said.
