Tamar Braxton Opens Up About Her Battle With Mental Health After Suicide Attempt
Tamar Braxton has taken to Instagram to address mental illness and issues that led her to the point of suicide.
In the lengthy post, Tamar Braxton revealed that after 11years in business with her partners, promises made remained unfulfilled. She also explained that mental illness is real and requested people normalise acknowledging it.
“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. 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. 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.
Every one of us has a desire, whether small or big, to make it out of where we come from to an ideal future place that includes, freedom to be who we choose, security for our children and families, and fortune to share with the ones we love. We believe these things can co-exist with just being happy. I believed that, that as a black woman, as an artist, an influence, a personality I could shape my world, and with whom I believed to be my partners, they could help me share my world.”

“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.
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. 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.”
Meanwhile, Tamar Braxton was rushed to the hospital Wednesday 15th July night after a possible suicide attempt. The R&B singer was staying at her Ritz Carlton Residence in Downtown Los Angeles with her partner David Adefeso who reportedly found her unresponsive.
