Tamar Braxton’s Boyfriend David Adefeso Speaks Out For First Time Since ‘Braxton Family Values Star’ Was Hospitalized; Braxton Family Reportedly Finds Details of David’s 911 Call Odd

Tamar Braxton’s boyfriend, David Adefeso, has confirmed the Braxton Family Values star is “receiving the best available medical attention” following her hospitalization for a possible overdose/suicide attempt. However, Tamar’s family is reportedly confused and alarmed by some of the things David has done and said in the past week in regard to Tamar.

A week ago, Tamar and David were staying at the Ritz Carlton Residences in Downtown Los Angeles when David found Tamar unresponsive. David allegedly believed the incident to be a possible suicide attempt and called 911, informing the operator that Tamar had been drinking and had taken an unknown amount of prescription pills. Tamar was taken to a nearby hospital at the time and on Saturday, she was transferred to a facility to receive specialized mental health treatment.

On Thursday, David spoke publicly for the first time about the events and the treatment Tamar is receiving.

“On behalf of Tamar Braxton, I want to thank her fans and the public for the ongoing thoughts and prayers,” David said in a statement issued to The Blast. “Tamar is a beautifully talented woman, a devoted mother, a loving girlfriend, a dear sister and a special friend to countless people. This is an extremely difficult time for Tamar and her family as she navigates professional and personal struggles including her battle with depression.

“Tamar is currently receiving the best available medical attention to address those struggles and strengthen her mental health and her family and I will remain by her side throughout her treatment,” he continued. “ … Mental health is a common issues, affecting 1 in 5 Americans. Please continue to send prayers and hope as Tamar continues the path to recovery and ultimate happiness. We ask to please respect Tamar’s privacy, and her family’s privacy, during this important time of healing.”

As The Ashley previously told you, Tamar’s alleged suicide attempt/overdose occurred after the trailer was released for her new WEtv show, Tamar Braxton: Get Ya Life. It also coincided with issues Tamar has expressed to network executives recently regarding the way her family has been treated and portrayed on TV.

However, it now appears that David’s frustration with the network, specifically the ‘Get Ya Life’ footage, may have contributed to Tamar’s frustration.


According to TMZ, David saw both the pilot episode and the promo for the new show last week and he was very unhappy with how he was portrayed, which in turn, upset Tamar. The site reports that David was so upset by the footage that when calling 911, he even explained that Tamar had issues with the network leading up to him finding her unresponsive in their hotel room.

Members of the Braxton Family apparently found it very strange that David would mention a television show while making a 911 call.

The family reportedly believes that, because David discussed the details of Tamar’s alleged drama with WEtv to the 911 dispatcher while the singer was in need of medical attention, it further proves David was the one who really had the issues with the show and its editorial choices, not Tamar.

“She was very angry early on,” David tells the 911 operator in the audio clip obtained by TMZ. “She’s had trouble with the network, the company she’s working with. And they did some things today…”

The 911 operator then tries to steer the conversation back to Tamar and her medical condition, instructing David to keep an eye on her breathing. David starts to sob at that point, crying, “This f**king network…it’s come to this. When do you get free? At what point are you really free?”

The 911 operator then asks David how long Tamar has been working for said company, but David sobs that “it’s taken over everything…everything…”

The site’s source goes on to claim that the family has noticed a change since Tamar began dating David and that David is very involved in Tamar’s business decisions.

    What the fuck is she depressed about rich people kill me with that shit she got enough money to live off of for the rest of her life she got a son I think it’s down righg selfish and why would she try to kill herself when there’speople in the world who got real problems like me im diebetic and about to loose my right leg and why would she want to leave her son a motherless chkld and the way her boyfriend look ill try to kill myself to girl by😍😍

  3. He took a page out of Bobbie Chrisrina’s husband’s, Britany Murphy’s mom’s playbook.. . The oldest and most commonly used playbook it would seem. Only difference is he didn’t have to off her mother first or husband second, that and he failed- she didn’t die. He’ll try again, likely after they marry so that her family can’t contest her will and hold it up in probate. Everything is probably bequeathed to her son, their son. This man is likely the trustee. This isn’t hard to see through, people are disgusting.

    We are experiencing extremely difficult times like never before which we don’t know how to handle. Ms.Tamar know that the Lord got you totally. Hold on to your faith. Seek the lords will and direction. He didn’t bring you this far to fail you.

  8. Only God knows what’s happening between Tamar and David, but to go on and on about the network when your loved one is fighting for her life…very odd indeed. Just hope Tamar gets well.

    David is all of one minute I her life and can already talk about the Network issues.?

    I think there’s more to this man I can bet my bottom dollar that this is a control freak that has met up with a brat who unfortunately has deep rooted unresolved issues…making a perfect ground(mentally)for depression.

    If her family see the change in her since dating this man ..theres more thd public doesn’t know that’s going on behind the scenes..

    Nigerian men are very arrogant and controlling.
    So good luck Tamar! Maybe you need to break free from him!

    IF he wasn’t happy with how HE’S portrayed in the shows….he will make her hae ir because he doesn’t want to look weak especially back home in Nigeria or amongst his kind …

    And that’s a FACT!

  11. I pray she doesn’t allow another man to direct her professional decisions and this is not another Whitney Houston situation she has too many sisters who can intervene please help her get away from this man and get her life back on track spiritually and emotionally only prayers for her and your family too Braxton

    Prayers for Tamar and her family, especially her son and parents.
    The least amount of gossip and speculation on social media the better.
    Once our prayers are answered Tamar will speak for herself.
    Do you want the lowest point in your life public?

  13. [* Shield plugin marked this comment as “Trash”. Reason: Failed Bot Test (expired) *]
    Hopefully someone in Tamars life can piss her off enough or love her enough or show her enough evidence that SHE’LL RUN THE OTHER WAY AS FAST AS POSSIBLE

      Tamar I just want to pray that you get better. GOD loves you and YOUR FAMILY. You and just your family needs a private vacation to just love on one another, watch movies, play games, swim, shopping etc…… You all need a piece of mind at this time. Humbleness is the best medicine in the world at this time. Ending this with take time off and have a praying week for family

  14. I’ve never watched her show but saw her on DWTS and I could see her internal struggles even there 😞 mental illness sucks ass, hope she makes it through..
