We're told on the way, Tamar questioned Adefesco about a recent about an Instagram he shared featuring her 7-year-old son, Logan Herbert.

According to sources close to Tamar, at that point, the argument turned violent and she says he "grabbed her hard" on the arms and caused bruising. During the scuffle, Braxton claims she only grabbed onto him AFTER he got physical.

We broke the story, David filed a domestic violence restraining order in Los Angeles County Court asking a judge to order Tamar to stay away from him. It's unclear at this point, what his allegations against the reality star detail.

But, sources close to Braxton tell us, "Any claims that Ms. Braxton was the aggressor and/or abusive are completely false and have no merit. David Adefeso has been upset and abusive since seeing his own true colors on Tamar’s upcoming television show and has been taking it out on Tamar ever since."

As we reported, the couple was upset about the contents of the first trailer released of her new reality show on WeTV, and the way it portrayed her boyfriend.

Interestingly, Tamar Braxton's family claimed they were disturbed by David's 911 call after she was found unresponsive, claiming his giving specific details about the reality show on the emergency photo call seemed odd.

Our sources say Tamar’s initial concerns arose in July after she while she was hospitalized, and claims she was notified that David was releasing public statements about her current medical state, without her consent.

After the altercation, we're told Tamar didn't call the police "because she wasn’t trying to ruin his business," but our sources say David DID call the authorities.

As we reported, following her hospitalization, Tamar Braxton credited David for saving her life. "I came here just to say this and then I’m logging off... if you have ever been in recovery or treatment you know that you reflect on a lot of, I couldn’t let another day, another second go by without PUBLICLY Thanking my Love @david.adefeso for saving my life...
