Tamar Braxton hospitalised after ‘possible overdose’

Tamar Braxton has been rushed to hospital after being found responsive following a “possible overdose.”

The 43-year-old, who stars in American reality series Braxton Family Values, was staying at the Ritz Carlton Residences in Downtown Los Angeles with boyfriend David Adefeso, according to reports in the US.

Adefeso allegedly found Braxton unresponsive and called 911.

The LAPD has since confirmed they received a call around 9:45pm in regard to a 43-year-old female who had a medical emergency listed as a “possible overdose.”

Braxton was taken to California Hospital in Downtown LA where she is reportedly stable but still unconscious.

A spokesperson for Braxton told American site The Blast: “Tamar has had a very tough and emotional day – more information will be coming in the next few days. Please pray for her.”

Braxton and Adefeso posted a statement on their YouTube show Coupled & Quarantined as to why the show had to be cancelled last minute on Thursday.

“Hello ya’ll, unfortunately, your girl Tamar is under the weather today and not feeling well so we need to postpone today’s show (Don’t worry it’s not Covid),” the statement read. “We’re sad because we had a great show lined up for you today, but next week’s show is going to be even bigger and better.

“So sorry for the inconvenience, we know many of you look forward to the show every week. we’ll make it up to you next week.”

The news comes after Braxton complained publicly about the pay and the treatment her and her family allegedly received from We TV for starring in Braxton Family Values.

Replying to a fan that said the show had lost its comedy over the years and had become more of a “drama”, Braxton responded: “But that’s what happens when it’s all white executives having all the power and telling your black family stories.

“I WILL get justice for my family and all other black reality shows with the narrative of ABP and negativity. it’s terrible and I’m tired.”

She continued: “Your post is exactly what I’m talking about. I too feel the same way. [The show] used to be funny and fun.

“Are we going to talk about pay…. I 100 percent wrote the theme song… where is the coin… our show is on Netflix…. where is the coin… 10 years on the air… we make 75 percent LESS than the Kardashians. How come there are no villains on that show?”
