Tamar Braxton shocked fans when she was rushed to the hospital after a possible suicide attempt in the late hours of Thursday, July 16. Now, the 43-year-old’s family is speaking out for the first time since her hospitalization asking their loyal fanbase to “pray 4 our family.” Three of Tamar Braxton’s sisters, Towanda Braxton, Trina Braxton, and Traci Braxton addressed the scary situation on their Instagram pages on Friday, one day after their younger sister’s possible overdose. Despite the drama played out on “Braxton Family Values,” the family rushed to Tamar’s side at the hospital and are turning to faith in their time of need.
Trina Braxton, 45, took to social media and posted a photo with a white background and a red love heart. She captioned the picture with a love heart and prayer hand emoji. Fans immediately sent her positivity in the comments, praying for Tamar Braxton’s recovery.
“I’m praying hard for y’all,” one fan posted in support. “Sending prayers to all of you and wrapping Tamar in love and positive energies. ??,” added another. “Constant prayers sis ??,” shared someone else.

The 46-year-old reality TV star posted her own picture reading, “Pray 4 our family.” The snap showed a navy background with skin-colored hearts and the four words written in light pink. Towanda only captioned the shot with one prayer hand emoji but that’s all it took for the good wishes to come pouring in from fans and A-listers.
“Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Cynthia Bailey commented, “Love & prayers to your family❤️??❤️,” as did her former co-star Claudia Jordan, who replied back with several prayer hand emojis.
Traci Braxton, 49, took to social media too, asking fans to send prayers their family’s way. Posting a photo with the words, “Keep my family in your prayers,” Tamar’s sister didn’t include any caption and she didn’t need to. Several fans filled up her comment section with positive wishes for the Braxtons as well as Tamar. While three out of Tamar’s four sisters have addressed the situation, the only one left to comment is Toni Braxton. At the time of this post, she has not said anything about Tamar’s possible suicide attempt.
Tamar Braxton’s family and their fans aren’t the only ones putting out positive vibes for her recovery. Mariah Carey put her personal issues aside to send prayers out to the star.
The drama surrounding the family’s show, “Braxton Family Values” on WeTV proved too much for Tamar Braxton. In a scathing letter, obtained by The Blast, the star went in on network executives comparing them to “cruel white slave masters who once chained our forefathers.” She slammed them for exposing one of her deepest secrets and it made her suicidal. “You broke me that day and I considered ending my own life then for the shame I felt!” she wrote.
Tamar Braxton also claimed the network tore her family apart. Accusing them of turning the Braxton family from the “once happy” group to people who “fight with each other, betray each other, and now we’re physically assaulting each other,” she also said, the network chose to show “the absolute worst side of a strong, independent, and successful African American family.”
