Tamar Braxton issued an apology to her former co-hosts at “The Real,” and also her sisters, saying she hurt them in the past because she was hurt herself.
The “Braxton Family Values” star took to social media on Monday to cleanse herself from the past. She blamed her actions on being emotionally damaged and admitted she has worked to find love.
Braxton wrote, “When all u know and felt is hurt. You hurt. Self inflicted and to others are included. From my sisters, the ladies of the real, Iyanla, old and new Friends and whomever else I’ve EVER hurt, from being hurt. Please forgive me. I didn’t know love to show you love.”
Tamar was on the talk show “The Real” from 2013 until 2016 with co-stars Tamera Mowry-Housley, Loni Love, Adrienne Bailon and Jeannie Mai. There were rumors she was fired but the show and Tamar eventually released a statement claiming it was a mutual decision for her to leave.
The reality star and her former hosts had a rocky split full of trash talk among the entire group.
Her former co-host Loni Love spoke out years after her leaving saying the reason for the issues were Tamar’s troubled relationship with her estranged husband Vincent Herbert.
In her post, Tamar also gave a shout out to her man, David Adefeso, for the positive changes in her life, “Now I do thanks to my @david.adefeso ?” (Tamar is currently still trying to move her divorce from Vince, despite him not showing up to court for over a year).
Adefeso also took to IG and also wrote about Tamar and her recent life changes. He wrote, “When I met my @tamarbraxton 12 months ago she was angry, distraught and almost-completely broken. She'd lost her family, her friends, her job and was estranged from her mom and sisters who she loves so much. While her behavior was a significant cause of these misfortunes, it took me a while to recognize that there were other equally valid causes, including being repeatedly assaulted by men in her life she trusted (first physically as a child, then emotionally later on in life by deeply aggressive and utterly controlling romantic relationships); finally culminating in the continuing psychological damage brought on by working on a TV show she feels utterly shackled to due to contract terms.”
The last line is a shot at “Braxton Family Values,” which Tamar has been publicly criticizing recently after allegedly wanting out of her contract.
