Tamar Braxton Opens Up About Suicide Attempt Denies Allegations She Abused Her Ex
Tamar Braxton revealed that she had contemplated suicide long before she acted on it.
When asked if she was “home at the time” or “if she took pills,” Braxton said,“It's so hard to say because I feel like there's a responsibility for- you know, I call them family, my fans, who watch. I don't want to give any examples. But what I will say is, that was my lowest point of life.”
When asked if she had ever tried to take her own life before, Braxton said,"I'm just going to be a hundred percent. There has been a time where I wanted to."
However, it was the first time she acted on it.
In mid-July, Braxton's boyfriend David Adefeso found her unconscious in the Los Angeles hotel room where they had been staying. He called 911 and she was hospitalized. After regaining consciousness and receiving treatment, Braxton was later transferred to a mental health facility.
During the interview, Braxton added that she has not attempted suicide since then. She said, “It's been a lot of dark, hard times. I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety due to a circumstance.”
Braxton also revealed that she is not taking medication, but she is in counseling.
Tamar Braxton opened up for the first time since her attempted suicide and alleged physical abuse.
Last month, her former fiancé David Adefeso filed for a restraining order and claimed she attacked him.
Braxton said, “I am a survivor of a domestic violence relationship. And not at any point was David and I in an abusive relationship.”
Braxton went on to note that audio and video recordings of the incident exist. She said, "I voice-recorded it, he video-taped it. He has a camera in his car.”
She claims the video tape he has, doesn’t show any physical abuse. Braxton said, “Release it.”
Braxton got emotional and said, “Let me tell you something that I loved David. He was my best friend. He was an amazing, amazing partner. He was my son's best friend as well, they were best friends. And it's just so hard because through everything else I expected from him. Now, I have to be real with myself. Is he acting like this because he found me the way that he found me? Probably. I don’t know.”
UPDATE: Tamar Braxton's Ex Says He Can't Release Car Attack Video
A rep for David Adefeso said Braxton destroyed his camera, ensuring there's no video evidence.
The rep says Adefeso’s dashcam only captured front and back views from the car. It didn't record anything inside the vehicle, something Tamar would know if she had just asked before jumping to conclusions and acting hastily.
The rep says the destruction of David's property after the alleged attack ended up costing him upwards of $1,600. In fact, he's now claiming he had to shell out more than $7,500 total for other damage she allegedly caused.
