Tamar Braxton Clarifies That She Did Attend Her Niece's Funeral -- Slams 'Braxton Family Values' In The Process
The Braxton family is going through some of the toughest times of their lives and doing it in the public eye makes it even harder. Tamar Braxton took to Twitter to vent her frustrations with the misconception that she didn't attend her niece's funeral and blame 'Braxton Family Values' for how fans perceive her.
After one follower sided with Tamar by saying that they understood when the singer explained that she was 'drained,' Tamar took the time to explain exactly what she meant.
"What I was saying was going to the funeral HOME was a lot! I get that u didn’t hear that part! I was honestly distraught and faking as if i was ok. Social media has taken bullying to a whole new level. The funeral didn’t happen a day later. It was today and i went."
This comes after the 'Big Brother' winner was highly criticized for an Instagram Live where it was believed that she said she wasn't going to the funeral because she didn't have time to. What made the situation seem worse was that she attended Kandi Burruss' 'Welcome to the Dungeon' tour.
People also slammed her for not posting about her late niece who suffered from a heart complication. She addressed that and revealed just how close she and Lauren Braxton were.
"It’s just been so hard because, not only did we have to lay baby girl to rest today but for all the hate, judging, blogs, to say such hateful things about me all because i did not want to post her to see her on my timeline!! That was my baby! I named her!! Who wants to see that??"
The mother of one also blamed 'BFV' for painting her in a bad like which she believes makes the public more willing to believe anything negative said about her.
"I’m sure people have heard me say or ANYONE say “ain’t nobody got time for that” that was the context in which I was referring to. But, i feel, because of how I often look on the Braxton’s, peopletjink im like that for real. I hate that show and HATE what it has become. Mainly because the storylines are ALL fake AF so you would look at me crazy. I’m held responsible for what happened last season, so I guess that why they changed the story about what happened at my show. I love my sister and wanted to make how she felt about me different."
She went on to say: "But get my theory.. it’s a show about my family that on EVERY episode I look like a damn hater, a fighter, a shit starter.....so the Second i say something or not, it’s atomically taken negative. I have NO legs!! It’s a lot. And after baby girls death, i can’t take it anymore."
