Toni Braxton is finally speaking out about the health crisis of her 43-year-old younger sister, Tamar Braxton, with her first comment on the matter.
On July 29, 13 days after Tamar was first hospitalized, Toni, 52, took to her Instagram account and shared a photo showing all of the Braxton sisters, with the caption: “Family is everything! Especially sisters!”
The day after Tamar’s hospitalization, three of her sisters immediately hit up their personal Instagram accounts on July 17 to detail the Braxton Family Values stars’ heartbreak.
Towanda Braxton, 46, shared a graphic that read “Pray 4 my family,” along with prayer hand emojis as her caption. Traci Braxton, 46, posted an Instagram message that read, “Keep my family in your prayers.” That same day, Trina Braxton, 45, posted a graphic of an open red heart on her Instagram account. So, fans have been waiting for Toni’s response to the matter.
In a 911 tape obtained by HollywoodLife, Tamar’s boyfriend David Adefeso said he was unable to awaken the singer after finding her unresponsive in their downtown L.A. hotel room on July 16.
He told the dispatcher, “My girlfriend is not responding. She’s not awake, she’s not responding,” as the operator repeatedly asked him to shake Tamar in an effort to wake her up.
“She’s been drinking. She’s on medication for depression. I don’t know how much. She sent a letter earlier. Just ask them to hurry,” David continued. “She’s on medication. She takes medication. I don’t know if she’s taken her medication or what.”
David went on to confide in the operator, “She was very angry earlier on. She has trouble with the network, the company she’s working with and they did something today.” He then began sobbing when talking about the ”f**king network.”
While he didn’t mention the name of the network, Tamar’s latest project is a six part WE tv docu-series called Tamar Braxton: Get Ya Life! It was scheduled to debut on July 30, but has been postponed to September 10 following the reality star’s hospitalization.
