The fights between Tamar Braxton and her ex-fiancé, David Adefeso, have escalated to the point that Toni Braxton has been forced to break her silence.
Tamar did not appreciate her sister meddling in her private life, so she found a classy way to tell her to stand down.
Here is a timeline of the Braxton/Adefeso drama. For a few years, Tamar and the businessman were going strong. The duo was living the perfect romance with all of Adefeso’s family embracing Tamar and her young son, Logan Herbert.
Tamar gushed over her man on several occasions, said she was ready for marriage and to have a daughter with Adefeso.

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 ❤️❤️❤️❤️
A few weeks ago, it all came to a screeching halt after Tamar tried to commit suicide. Adefeso found the singer unresponsive after swallowing several pills following a heated exchange with the heads of a TV network.
After Tamar was released from the hospital, she thanked Adefeso for saving her life and dropped the bombshell that they were engaged.
The happy news was rapidly erased with a boatload of negative headlines claiming that Adefeso had asked for a restraining order against the diva whom he accused of assaulting him.

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
Tamar shot back by saying that Adefeso tried to kill her. More wild allegations surfaced, and Monday night, Toni joined in the drama by dragging her sister’s former flame.
The living legend wrote: “David, You Weasel…you Ferre. You are beyond contempt. Once again, DO NOT include my children in your SHENANIGANS. Please leave my family ALONE!”
Tamar responded to her sister with this message: “Nobody wins when the family feuds.”
A social media user had this to say about the exchange: “Now for Toni to break her silence, this is something! But Tamar, you brought him around your family this on you sis 🥴🤷🏽♀️.”
Another supporter made this comment: “Am I the only one that doesn’t understand what the feud is all about? Coz, the last time I checked, she was done with David👀👀. That girl is always caught up in some kind of mess and drama.😂”
This reasonable woman shared these words of wisdom: “Attention all women, 🗣 are you tired of these men? Are you tired of all this hate, and politics, aggression, and anger? It’s time to focus on your femininity and happiness! Find your strength to have peace, self-care, and self love. Take care of yourself and feel whole finally without energy-draining situations, people, etc. You deserve to feel happy and beautiful in this time 💕 Take a moment to think… Are you taking care of your soul? Your body? Your spirit? 🦋 ”
Nobody wins when the family feuds💔

Tamar was called out by a commenter who said: “Family? I think Tamar and David are secretly married or something like that.”
Many believe that more revelations will come out in the near future.
