Tamar Braxton is “alert and responsive” after her what was believed to be a suicide attempt on Friday.
According to The Blast, sources say the songstress is awake and recounting the days leading up to her hospitalization.
If you recall, the youngest Braxton was found unconscious last week after taking an unknown amount of pills and alcohol. Upon her discovery, her boyfriend David Adefeso dialed 911 to report a possible suicide attempt. She was then transported to a local hospital where she was listed as stable but still unconscious.
But now, just days later, it appears Braxton is awake, alert and recovering at a new hospital facility, where she is expected to receive more specialized treatment for her mental health.
Braxton was moved over the weekend to a Los Angeles hospital that houses top mental health specialists, focusing on depression, anxiety, and sexual assault trauma.
“Tamar has been transferred to another facility for further evaluation and treatment,” a spokesperson told The Blast. “Out of respect for Tamar’s privacy and that of her family, no additional information is available at this time.”
“The outpouring of support that Tamar has received is a testament to the light that she brings people,” the statement continued, adding that the singer will remain in the new facility until further treatment is determined.
In the meantime, this all comes in the wake of a series of tough days for the reality star.
Just weeks prior to Tamar’s hospitalization, the anger wrote a lengthy letter to WeTV, who produces her reality shows, alluding to her suicidal thoughts.
In the letter, she slammed the network over its portrayal of her black family on its show, Braxton Family Values, exposing her secrets and paying them 16 times less than their white cohorts, despite the rankings.
“You broke me that day, and I considered ending my own life for the shame I felt,” she explained of her Iyanla Vanzant session that revealed her past sexual assault. “I was so powerless and hurt I had to dig deep inside of me with every ounce of courage I had to tell Wendy Williams and 10 million viewers on national TV a secret I was not ready to tell but had to tell before you exploited my story to the World and left another black viewer broken and suicidal like me.”
