Tamar Braxton is taking time to reflect on the turbulent past few months in her life and is now thanking God for saving her life, after being hospitalized for a possible suicide attempt.
The ‘Braxton Family Values’ star took to Instagram to address her recent hospitalization and mental health treatment, along with the violent split with her boyfriend, and the reality star she has the Lord to thank for helping her through the issues.
“God thank you for saving me! You know my true heart. Despite what the world may think of me, you kept me here for a reason,” she began.
“You are a God of second chances, and this second chance I won’t take for granted. The world can often be a dark place but I must resort to you for my light,” she continued.
We broke the story, Tamar was rushed to an L.A. hospital after her boyfriend found her unresponsive after drinking and consuming an unknown amount of prescription pills. At the time, during the 911 call, it appeared she had attempted to take her own life.
“Ladies, have you ever felt like you put all your time and love into your children, job, relationship and family but often forget to love yourself? That is where I have been for the past few years,” she added.
“I believe I have put a lot of time and effort in loving and giving my all to everything else but myself. I have allowed myself to stay in toxic situations including work environments,” she added.
The reality star continued, “I’ve allowed my talents to be used for the wrong reasons. I have allowed myself to be used in too many “angry black girl narratives. I’m not angry at all.”
As we reported, Tamar is being accused by her ex-boyfriend of a violent assault which he reported to the police and filed a domestic violence restraining order. Braxton is claiming he was the aggressor and is now questioning his motives in the relationship.
In her message, Tamar admits to battling mental health issues and warns that others should support people around them who are suffering from the issue.
“I have been battling mental health for some time now, and Let me tell y’all is not a joke. Nor is it a reason for anyone to call you “crazy”. I am praying for anyone that is on this same battle. I’ve realized in this time that the only thing I can control is the things I own. I want to personally fight for brown girls to have more ownership and not just be a slave to the industry,” she wrote.
“Black women are the unvalued and unprotected. I am on a never-ending battle to be the best Tamar Braxton I can be. God has brought me through a lot so I would like to pass it on to use my voice to help brown women and ALL women in these similar situations. We all have the opportunity to evolve. For now, on it’s me vs me. ✨” she concluded.
At this point, Tamar has stopped working on her current reality show, but it’s unclear if she will start back up filming based on different contractual circumstances.
