Diva Tamar Braxton is back in the news after many noticed that she might be feuding with one of her sisters.
This time around, it is not a rumor; after the tension and even blow-out between Tamar and her sister, Traci Braxton, on their reality show — the pair has decided to stop following each other on Instagram.
Fans, who followed the hit TV show, Braxton Family Values, are aware of the heated exchange at Napa Valley where Tamar cut the vacation short and Traci kept going after a cameraman.
Despite Tamar’s boyfriend, David Adefeso making a huge announcement that she had changed and was no longer interested in the negativity that fighting brings.
One fan reacted to the news by saying: “I think they need to hear her out and understand where she is coming from. They can agree to disagree. But I think they are assuming they know what it’s about, but they don’t. You can tell she is hurt. That’s their sister they need to find why she is so hurt; she used to be the jokester. I pray for her peace.”

When I met my @tamarbraxton 12 months ago she was angry, distraught and almost-completely broken. She'd lost her family, her friends, her job and was estranged from her mom and sisters who she loves so much. While her behavior was a significant cause of these misfortunes, it took me a while to recognize that there were other equally valid causes, including being repeatedly assaulted by men in her life she trusted (first physically as a child, then emotionally later on in life by deeply aggressive and utterly controlling romantic relationships); finally culminating in the continuing psychological damage brought on by working on a TV show she feels utterly shackled to due to contract terms. This is what I inherited so I had a choice: to continue the emotional and psychological abuse she had endured for almost 3 decades by being aggressively controlling and manipulative or to be a kind, gentle and loving friend and lover to the woman I love- Well, I chose the latter, and the results have been outstanding! With few exceptions the anger has been replaced by joy, the despair has morphed into a need to help the abused (check out #NoNeedTBShame), and the kind, gentle, beautiful and self-assured woman that is my @tamarbraxton is now on full display (check out our social media activities over the past 3 months since the show was shot and see the new Tamar)! A word to our strong black men who are in relationships with our beautiful black women- when you make a commitment to love that sista, it is your duty and responsibility to STAND BY YOUR WOMAN. PERIOD! Irrespective of wealth, power or fame, many of our women have endured the same challenges that my Tamar has, including physical and emotional abuse, endemic marginalization, controlling romantic relationships and desertion by black men. Some of what many have condescendingly coined as #AngryBlackWoman is simply a reflection of, and reaction to, the life experiences of our beautiful black women. So gentlemen, we DO NOT abandon our sistas when things get tough, and especially when they need us the most. We love them through it, we support them through it, and we protect them through it! #BlackMenStandUpForBlackWomen
Another commenter had this to say: “I just pray for the whole family. It seems like Traci’s manager keeps stuff going which divides not just the family but yet both of their staff as well. The sad part about it, It worked only because the sister had issues b/4 that so it was easy for his manipulations to tear their family apart. & in general, this is why as a family under the spotlight you NEVER let the enemy see your anger for one another. or know that you are upset with one another because that’s the fuel for the fire. Traci’s manager seemed to be the igniter, lighter & gas fluid to burn bridges. As far as the dressing rooms it did not seem as though Tamara’s dressing room was too much better & Me personal don’t believe that Tamar knew what the dressing rooms look like b/4 hand & ppl should remember that was an ancient building in New York. & Tamar surely didn’t ask her sister to open the show just to feel any kind of negative way. Tamar was still looking forward to singing the finale with Traci & wasn’t even aware that Traci had even dipped out.”
Tamar’s fans are used to these changes.
