LAPD confirmed to the outlet that a call had been made around 9:45 p.m. July 15, in regards to a “possible overdose” by a woman matching Braxton’s description.
A spokesperson for the Braxton family released the following statement: “Tamar has had a very tough and emotional day – more information will be coming in the next few days. Please pray for her.”
Braxton has starred since 2011 on the popular reality show “Braxton Family Values” featuring her sisters before debuting her own show recently. Braxton is currently starring in the reality show “To Catch A Beautician” and has another show called “Tamar Braxton: Get Ya Life!” was set to premiere July 30 on We TV.
“Sources say Tamar’s condition is unclear at the moment. We’re told Tamar has been extremely emotional due to an ongoing contract dispute with We TV. The singer has been attempting to get out of her contract believing she has been screwed over for years,” The Blast reported.
This is not the first time observers were worried about Braxton’s mental health. In 2018, amid very public squabbles with her sisters (who include Grammy winner singer Toni Braxton), Tamar shaved her head.
“My family did get on me; it was a natural reaction with my sisters and girlfriends,” she told Page Six Style earlier this summer about the incident. “They were like, ‘Girl, what you are you going through? Are you all right? Do I need to come see you? Do you need some help? When was the last time you ate?’ I got all of that.”
Tamar has released four albums, most recently 2017’s “Bluebird of Happiness,” and co-hosted the Emmy-winning daytime talk show “The Real” for three years, ending with her high-profile firing in 2016, The New York Post reported. In 2019 she was the winner of the second season of CBS’s “Celebrity Big Brother.”
