“I didn’t want him to be embarrassed in front of his friends,” said Braxton to Henson. “Here is this loudmouth ghetto mama.”

The actress asked Braxton, “You thought he would be better without you?” Braxton replied, “I thought in that moment.”


Tamar Braxton was hospitalized following a suicide attempt and said living her life in the public eye pushed her to the edge.

Braxton’s then-boyfriend, David Adefeso, called for medical attention after she was found unresponsive in their Los Angeles Ritz-Carlton hotel room.

But she’s seemingly recovering and spoke about her mental health issues with a picture of her embracing her son, Logan. “Thank you to each and every individual who has prayed for me, thought of me, sent me their love and has showered me with their support. In this present moment, it is my only responsibility to be real with myself and to be real with the ones who truly love me and care for my healing,” the post began.

Peace of Mind With Taraji appears on Facebook Watch every Monday and Wednesday. The episode with Braxton is titled, “Surviving Mental Breakdown With Tamar Braxton.”
