David Adefeso reportedly wants to be completely edited out of ex-fiancée Tamar Braxton's forthcoming reality TV show Tamar Braxton: Get Ya Life!
Adefeso filed paperwork in a Los Angeles court on Tuesday, seeking legal protection, TMZ reported earlier this week.
According to the New York Post's gossip column Page Six, he's also desperately trying to get himself removed from her new TV show, because the editing makes him look bad.
An insider says he "does not want the show to air because he does not want to look bad, and have it affect his financial business".
"There is a scene in the show where David tries to get in between Tamar and... a spiritual adviser," they explain. "David believes the spiritual adviser practices voodoo, and does not believe in her method of spirituality. There's a scene where production wraps, but the audio was still on. You can hear Tamar yell, 'David, stop'."
Another apparent incident occurred last month when David posted a video with Tamar's son Logan Herbert, 7, on a trip to the beach, without her knowledge.
The source went on to insist David - who is the developer of a tuition-savings app - "does not want his business to be harmed".
It's the latest drama in Tamar's personal life, as she continues to recover following a suicide attempt in July. David found the "Love and War" singer unresponsive in their Los Angeles hotel suite after she reportedly ingested a cocktail of prescription drugs and alcohol.
The Braxton Family Values star subsequently blamed WE tv's "toxic" reality TV environment for her mental health struggles, and she publicly praised her man as her "angel" for supporting her through the rough period.
