Tamar Braxton has denied allegations by ex-fiancé David Adefeso that she was the abusive partner in their relationship.

Adefeso, 51, says Tamar, 43, brutally attacked him while he was driving, and nearly caused a traffic accident.

Adefeso filed for a restraining order against the singer after claiming she hauled off and punched him in the neck, which caused him to become disoriented while behind the wheel of his Rolls-Royce.

He claims she began to trash the car, damaging the camera and rearview mirror when he pulled over and parked the vehicle.

In court papers he said he suffered bruising to his neck and shoulder area, but in a clip from Tamar's sit-down interview with Tamron Hall - set to air on Wednesday, Oct. 28, Tamar denied his claims.

"I am a survivor of a domestic violence relationship," she said. "And not at any point (were) David and I in an abusive relationship."

Tamar added that audio and video recordings of the alleged incident in the car exist as she "voice-recorded it" and he "videotaped it" with a camera in his car.

"Does that video or the voice recording show any physical abuse?" Tamron asked.

"No, it doesn't," Tamar replied. "He has the videotape. He has it. It was in his car. Release it."

She became emotional as she continued:

"No, let me tell you something, I loved David. He was my best friend. He was an amazing, amazing partner. He was my son's best friend as well, they were best friends. And it's just so hard because through everything else, I never expected this from him. Now, I have to be real with myself, is he acting like this because he found me the way that he found me? Probably, I don't know."

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.

Tamar Braxton's boyfriend rushed to court file for protection against the R&B singer and reality TV star, reports TMZ.com.

David Adefeso filed for a restraining order Tuesday in L.A., accusing Tamar of abusing him in a domestic violence incident, TMZ has learned.

David is asking a judge to grant him a restraining order against Tamar. It's unclear if she attacked him and if he has any injuries.

The court hasn't approved his request just yet -- TMZ reached out to Tamar's team to get more info.

The 43-year-old R&B star was hospitalized in Los Angeles on July 16 after David found her disoriented and lethargic in her hotel suite. She had apparently swallowed a handful of prescription pills.

David told 911 that Tamar was threatening to kill herself. He also mentioned her WE tv beef to cops at the time.

Braxton family sources told TMZ they believe she's changed since hooking up with him -- claiming her mood seems to align with his.

They said David comes off as controlling in Tamar's reality show, and that he's been quite involved in her business decisions of late.

Tamar's new single "Crazy Kind of Love" peaked at #2 on Billboard and Media Base charts. "Crazy Kind of Love", the first single off the soundtrack to the upcoming theatrical release TRUE TO THE GAME 2, is scheduled to be in theaters nationwide late November 2020.

Khia Finch, aka Thug Misses, took aim at Tamar Braxton who is recovering from a suicide attempt. The "Gag Order" host crossed the line when she accused the reality TV star of faking her own suicide.

Tamar, 43, was rushed to the emergency room last month after she swallowed a handful of pills. After stabilizing her, doctors transferred the singer to a psychiatric hospital for "specialized" mental health therapy. But Khia claims it was all a ploy to get out of her contract with WeTV.

"People say you can fake an orgasm but you can't fake your death to get out of no contract. People say... maybe you did," said Khia. "WeTV released Tamar from her contract after she took Tylenol PMs, took a nap and faked dying."

WeTV terminated Tamar's contract, saying, "Tamar Braxton has been an important part of our network family for more than a decade. As she focuses on her health and recovery at what is clearly a difficult and personal time, we will work with her representatives to honor her request to end all future work for the network. We wish her nothing but the best."

Tamar Braxton and WE tv have officially severed ties, following Braxton's emotional open letter about the "toxic" reality TV environment.

In a new statement from WE tv, obtained exclusively by Variety, the network said, "Tamar Braxton has been an important part of our network family for more than a decade. As she focuses on her health and recovery at what is clearly a difficult and personal time, we will work with her representatives to honor her request to end all future work for the network. We wish her nothing but the best,” reads the WE tv statement.

The decision comes just one day after Braxton said the network "betrayed, overworked, and underpaid" her.

Until now, Braxton was the second highest paid star on the network, behind only her sister, Toni Braxton.

On Thursday, July 30, the 43-year-old R&B singer broke her silence about WE tv's betrayal that drove her to attempt suicide.

"First and foremost, Thank you," she wrote. "Thank you to each and every individual who has prayed for me, thought of me, sent me their love and has showered me with their support."

Braxton said producers betrayed her deep dark secret that she was repeatedly raped from age 6 to 16.

"Over the past 11 years, there were promises made to protect and portray my story, with the authenticity and honesty I gave," the singer said. "I was betrayed, taken advantage of, overworked, and underpaid."

Braxton eventually appealed to network officials at WeTV two months ago to release her from her "excessive and unfair" contract, but stated, "My cry for help went totally ignored."

"Who I was, begun [sic] to mean little to nothing, because it would only be how I was portrayed on television that would matter," she continued. "It was witnessing the slow death of the woman I became, that discouraged my will to fight. I felt like I was no longer living, I was existing for the purpose of a corporations gain and ratings, and that killed me."

She went on to insist, "Mental illness is real," and credited "God's grace and His mercy" with saving her life, as she vowed to use her voice going forward to ensure no other reality stars face the kind of exploitation she insists she was subjected to for over a decade.

Braxton's new reality TV series "Tamar Braxton: Get Ya Life" will premiere on WE tv on Sept. 10.

She spent several days in a coma but has since regained consciousness and is currently being treated for mental health issues.

On Thursday, July 30, Braxton opened up about her suicide attempt in a candid post on Instagram.

Alongside a photo of herself and her seven-year-old son, Logan Herbert, Braxton began by thanking fans for their well wishes.

"First and foremost, Thank you," she wrote. "Thank you to each and every individual who has prayed for me, thought of me, sent me their love and has showered me with their support."

"In this present moment, it is my only responsibility to be real with myself and to be real with the ones who truly love me and care for my healing," she continued.

"I have without fail, shared with you my brightest days, and I know that sharing with you what has been my darkest will be the light for any man or woman who is feeling the same defeat I felt just only a week ago."

Braxton explained life under the reality TV spotlight has slowly eaten away at her spirit, and blamed producers behind her family series Braxton Family Values of doing little to help with her mental health struggles, particularly over the last five years, during which she split from her now ex-husband and manager Vincent Herbert.

She claimed to have been betrayed by show producers, who "filmed the damage made, for monetary gain".

"Over the past 11 years, there were promises made to protect and portray my story, with the authenticity and honesty I gave," the singer added. "I was betrayed, taken advantage of, overworked, and underpaid."

The series will premiere on Sept. 10.

TMZ's sources say Tamar's relatives, including her mom, Evelyn (pictured right), find it strange David discussed details of her alleged network beef while she was desperately in need of medical attention. The family believes it is further proof David was the one who really had issues with the show's editorial choices.

Tamar's family noticed a change in her mentally since she started seeing David, according to TMZ's sources, who say Tamar's mood swings tend to align with how David's feeling. They also say he's "very involved" in her business decisions.

As for David's portrayal in the pilot, someone who's seen the episode says David comes off as demanding and controlling.

In the episode, Tamar decides to go on a spiritual healing journey, which includes no sex for 45 days, something that really upsets David.

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.
