Tamar Braxton is reportedly recovering in the hospital after being found unresponsive in her hotel room last night.
According to the Daily Mail, who broke the story early this morning, the singer-songwriter was rushed to a Los Angeles hospital on Thursday for what’s believed to have been a possible attempted suicide. As the story goes, Tamar had been staying with her boyfriend, David Adefeso, at the Ritz Carlton in downtown LA when he found the 43-year-old “unresponsive.”
The Blast adds that David reportedly called 911 saying that she’d been drinking and had ingested an unknown amount of prescription pills. “Ambulances then arrived at the hotel and took her to the hospital. Sources have claimed that David believes that it was a possible suicide attempt,” the outlet indicates.
LAPD confirmed to the celebrity gossip website that they’d received the call at approximately 9:45 p.m. saying “a female had a medical emergency listed as a ‘possible overdose.’”
As yet, Tamar’s condition is unknown, but a spokesperson for the star shared this with MailOnline: “Tamar has had a very tough and emotional day — more information will be coming in the next few days. Please pray for her.”
Prior to Tamar’s hospitalization, the “Love and War” songbird was expected to appear on an episode of her YouTube show, Coupled & Quarantined, Thursday night. However, the show was postponed because she was feeling “under the weather" (not with COVID-19), per a message announcing her absence.
As fans know, Tamar is the younger sister of the R&B superstar, Toni Braxton. Tamar was one of the many stars of the reality show, Braxton Family Values, on which she starred alongside sisters Towanda, Trina, and Traci. Tamar was also one of the original co-hosts of the talk show, The Real, from 2013 to 2016.
