Singer and reality TV star Tamar Braxton was hospitalized Thursday after a possible suicide attempt.
According to The Blast, Tamar was staying at the Ritz Carlton Residences in Downtown Los Angeles with her boyfriend David Adefeso at the time of the incident. David reportedly found Tamar “unresponsive” and called 911 to report that Tamar had been drinking and had taken an unknown amount of prescription pills.
Sources for the site claim David believed it is was a possible suicide attempt.

I’ve never had a mother in law until now. I had no Idea on what I was missing out on. Someone who truly loves you like their blood daughter all because you have fallen in love with a magnificent man. Never besides my amazing mother has another woman accepted me for all my flaws, prays for me and my heart @david.adefeso and also my amazing son. She sends me scriptures to read and they are always what I need. She gives me her blessings on things and will tell me when I’m wrong. I cherish every day that he blesses us with your love and spirit. love you mummy. I praise God that he made it so that I was your daughter. Happy 81st bday‼️‼️❤️ you are just as stunning as you were the day we met🥰😍
LAPD confirmed to The Blast that a call came in about 9:45 p.m., asking for help for a 43-year-old female who had a medical emergency. That emergency was reportedly listed as a “possible overdose.”
A source told TMZ that David also told the police Tamar had been upset earlier in the day and had threatened suicide.
As of Friday, Tamar is reportedly in stable condition but remains under 24-hour watch at the hospital. A spokesperson for the Braxton Family has since released a statement, asking the public for prayers.
“Tamar has had a very tough and emotional day – more information will be coming in the next few days. Please pray for her.”
Tamar’s possible suicide attempt coincidentally occurred on the same day the first trailer for her new WEtv show, Tamar Braxton: Get Ya Life, was released. David also appears on the new show with Tamar, in addition to co-starring on the couple’s YouTube show, Coupled & Quarantined.
Thursday is the day Tamar and David livestream for the show on YouTube; however, they did not appear on the channel as scheduled on Thursday night. The couple did post a video to apologize to fans for missing the scheduled broadcast. (The couple did not appear on-camera and the video was simply a one-frame message that ran for 10 minutes.)
The message claimed that Tamar was “not feeling well.”
“Hello y’all, unfortunately your girl Tamar is under the weather today and not feeling well so we need to postpone today’s show (don’t worry it’s not COVID),” the video’s message stated. “We’re sad because we had a great show lined up for you today, but next week’s show is going to be even bigger and better. So sorry for the inconvenience, we know many of you look forward to the show every week. We’ll make it up to you next week.”
The singer is also known for appearing alongside her sisters Toni, Traci, Towanda and Trina and their mother, Evelyn, on Braxton Family Values. On Friday, the show’s official Twitter account shared a message of support for Tamar and the Braxton family.
