It has been revealed that Tamar Braxton was taken to a Los Angeles hospital after a suicide attempt. Braxton was found unconscious by her boyfriend, David Adefeso.
Police have confirmed that the singer and reality TV star overdosed and was unresponsive when they arrived in her hotel room on Thursday night at around 9:45 pm.
Adefeso called the authorities and emergency for help after discovering his girlfriend at the Ritz Carlton Residences. Adefeso told the police that Braxton had taken several prescription pills and consumed alcohol.
The ambulances took her to a nearby hospital. It is believed that Adefeso is by Braxton’s side at the moment.
The LAPD confirmed to the media, “we had received a call around 9:45 pm, and a 43-year-old female had a medical emergency listed as a possible overdose.” As of right now, Braxton’s condition is unclear.

Yesterday my @tamarbraxton , Beans and I hosted our first thanksgiving dinner as a family. My dynamic 80 year old mom, sister, brother-in-law and niece as well as more than 30 close friends of ours attended. We had a blast!!! It always amazes me to see how Tamar and my family took to each other from the moment they met back in Nigeria; they love her and she loves them right back. During dessert my mom stood up to speak and she called Tamar her daughter. I wasn’t surprised: my family took to Tamar’s gorgeous simile, deep kindness and infectious sense of humor almost as strongly as she took to my family’s deeply Christian, conservative, African roots. But what if my family hadn’t accepted her? As with a lot of African American families, many African parents and families tend to get too overly involved in their children’s relationships and married lives, often to the detriment of the young couple’s relationship (heck, I’ve seen some of my friends’ moms move into the couple’s home right after they got married, which so often makes life miserable for the daughter-in-law). I vowed that I would never put Tamar through the misery I’ve seen other couples go through with the man’s family. So I informed my family early on that they didn’t have a choice! They either love Tamar the way they love me and accept her the way I accept her….or they risk losing me completely. Needless to say, I needn’t have worried!! My mom treats Tamar like her 4th daughter (I have 3 sisters) and Beans like her 13th grandchild, my sisters cherish her the way they do each other, and my brothers adore my @tamarbraxton almost as much as I do. Welcome to the Adefeso family, Tamar!! I am so grateful and give thanks that God brought you and Beans into my life. A word to all the young, strong brothas out there who are in relationships with our beautiful black sistas: please stand up for your girl! Once you pick her she becomes your #1 in life; and she comes before the rest of your family: before your mom, sisters, and before even you!! And that’s how to keep a happy home! #happythanksgiving #godblessournewfamily ❤️❤️❤️❤️
According to The Blast, the mother of one had a complicated and emotional day where she was fighting with the network that airs Braxton Family Values, We TV.
A spokesperson for the diva revealed: “Tamar has had a very tough and emotional day — more information will be coming in the next few days. Please pray for her.”

This past one was another busy weekend for my @tamarbraxton and I. We spent time at the Inspiration Awards organized annually by Step up LA @stepupwomensnetwork , a non-profit that helps primarily young Black and Hispanic teen girls. Heard some stories of “depression to revival” from some young women that almost moved us to tears. Step Up lifts up young girls in disenfranchised communities and steers them in a direction many of them would never have otherwise known existed. Many of these teen girls are in very high risk situations: absentee parents, drugs, sexual abuse, and more. It teaches young women that they are strong and smart and beautiful and they can achieve anything they want 💪🏿! They provide mentors, they have programs, they provide a safe environment to escape to❤️❤️❤️❤️! Step Up gives our girls a chance. Our daughters are our jewels….Soooooooo Bravo Ladies 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾. #LetsGiveOurDaughtersAChance
A source confirmed that Braxton has been working hard to get out of her contract because the networks have been making money using her talent.
This week, things got worse when the trailer for her new We TV reality show, Get Ya Life, surfaced online. Toni Braxton‘s sister was frustrated by the clip because she did not approve of the way it portrayed her.
Recently, Braxton took to Twitter to say she was fed up with her Braxton Family Values contract.
The power couple who have a live YouTube show called Coupled & Quarantined canceled an episode last week because Braxton was not well.
Are we going to talk about pay…. I 100 percent wrote the 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🤔 https://t.co/0dIueRQ2Dx

However, all seemed well because Adefeso shared this message: “Come hang out with my @tamarbraxton and I later today on Tamar’s Official YouTube Page. We were off last week so we’ve got a heck of a lot to say this week. You all know we don’t hold back. Always no holds barred! See you soon….”
One fan replied to the report with: “Sometimes you just never know what people are going through!”
A second commenter chimed in: “This is why everyone needs to be nice to everyone, we never know what Someone could be going through 😭.”
A third person added: “That’s not the right route for anybody. May God bless her with the help she requires.”
