NeNe Leakes And David Adefeso React After Tamar Braxton Breaks Her Silence Following Her Suicide Attempt
Tamar Braxton has decided to break her silence after her suicide attempt that rattled her family and loving fans.
Last week, the diva and reality TV star was found unresponsive at the Ritz-Carlton in Los Angeles by her boyfriend, David Adefeso .
On Thursday, Tamar took to Instagram to share a lengthy and emotional statement, along with a beautiful photo of herself hugging her son, Logan Herbert.
Tamar wrote: "First and foremost, Thank you. 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. 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."
She added: "Over the past 11 years there were promises made to protect and portray my story, with the authenticity and honesty I gave. I was betrayed, taken advantage of, overworked, and underpaid. I wrote a letter over 2 months ago asking to be freed from what I believed was excessive and unfair. I explained in personal detail the demise I was experiencing. My cry for help went totally ignored. However the demands persisted. It was my spirit, and my soul that was tainted the most. There are a few things I count on most to be, a good mother, a good daughter, a good partner, a good sister, and a good person. Who I was, begun to mean little to nothing, because it would only be how I was portrayed on television that would matter. 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."
David showed support for Tamar by saying: "Thanks for the tremendous courage you are demonstrating by being unafraid to speak truth to power. As one legendary commentator once said: "it takes but one person, one moment, one conviction, to start a ripple of change." Thanks for speaking up for those who are unable to speak for themselves, and for doing so even at your greatest moment of weakness. I stand with you in this struggle till the very end✊🏽❤️🙏🏽."
Nene Leakes and Kandi Burruss have also headed to the comment section to tell Tamar to keep her heap up.
