Tamar was reportedly found unresponsive and unconscious by her boyfriend on July 16th. LAPD confirmed a call around 9:45 p.m. that a 43-year old woman had a medical emergency due to “possible overdose” of prescription pills and alcohol.
Braxton was staying at the Ritz Carlton Residences in Downtown Los Angeles with David, who made the call.

The Braxton Family Values star’s boyfriend has been by her side since she has been in the hospital last week and is supporting her in her recovery and doctor’s decisions about her ongoing treatment.
“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,” David says.
“This is an extremely difficult time for Tamar and her family as she navigates professional and personal struggles including her battle with depression,” he continues.
