Exactly one week ago we reported that Tamar Braxton had been taken to the hospital after an alleged suicide attempt. David Adefeso, Braxton’s boyfriend, spoke to The Blast on Thursday, providing an update on the singer and reality star’s condition.
“This is an extremely difficult time for Tamar and her family as she navigates professional and personal struggles including her battle with depression…Tamar is currently receiving the best available medical attention to address those struggles and strengthen her mental health, and her family and I will remain by her side throughout her treatment.”
According to reports Adefeso was the one to find the 43-year-old “Love and War” singer in their Los Angeles hotel room. A spokesperson for the LAPD confirmed that officers responded to a “possible overdose” call that night.
The couple went public with their relationship in April of 2019 and co-hosts the livestream YouTube series, Coupled & Quarantined.
In his statement, the businessman asked fans to continue sending prayers for Tamar, stating that ” Mental health is a common issue, affecting 1 in 5 Americans.”
