After reportedly being found unresponsive in Los Angeles, singer Tamar Braxton was hospitalized on July 16 for unspecified reasons.
The hospitalization comes just weeks before the premiere of the popular reality star’s new WE tv show “Tamar Braxton: Get Ya Life!” In a new teaser for the show, Tamar spoke about her challenges, saying, “I’ve been feeling choked every single day.”
And now her boyfriend David Adefeso is speaking out for the first time on her condition.
In a statement to The Blast, Adefeso said, “On behalf of Tamar Braxton, I want to thank her fans and the public for the ongoing thoughts and prayers. Tamar is a beautifully talented woman, a devoted mother, a loving girlfriend, a dear sister and a special friend to countless people.”
He continued, "This is an extremely difficult time for Tamar and her family as she navigates professional and personal struggles including her battle with depression."
