Since receiving treatment and coming forward with allegations of mistreatment from her WE TV family, the reality star, 43, shared another moment of vulnerability and gratitude on Saturday (August 1). "I came here just to say this and then I’m logging off… if you have ever been in recovery or treatment you know that you reflect on a lot of things…so I couldn’t let another day, another second go by without PUBLICLY Thanking my Love @david.adefeso for saving my life," the star captioned a post on Instagram. "I'm so grateful. I was in our home lifeless & I'm sure finding me the way that you did couldn’t have been easy. But know that people coming at you saying all this crazy stuff, isn’t easy for me."
"People have called you every name in the book, to deflect from what’s really been going on. Through this entire time, you have held my hand, heard my cries, held me when I have been weak. You have had my ENTIRE back I will not allow anyone to call you controlling or ‘that’s that African man’ like I don’t have a mind of my own cause without THIS African man, I simply would not be here," she continued.
Braxton went on to admit that Adefeso was "here for [her] when NOBODY was and still is." "YOU and Logan are priority. Thank you for being my Rock and now, my Angel on earth. I love you.. and although I been said yes in this old video… now and then, I couldn’t imagine what life would be like if you weren’t by my side," she concluded. "Thank God I’m here and thank God for you."
Days after the incident, the Braxton Family Values star was transported to a "new hospital specializing in mental health care" and went on to work with professionals on her road to recovery. Since then, WE TV made the call to push back her new docuseries series, Tamar Braxton: Get Ya Life! until September 10. Since then, Braxton has broken her silence on her mental health following the suicide attempt and shared scathing claims against the company. The network responded by severing their ties with the star.
