Tamar Braxton's relationship with WeTV has drawn to a bitter close.
According to a statement released Friday (July 31), the network has chose to officially end their relationship with Tamar after she broke her silence on her mental health following her recent suicide attempt along with scathing claims against the company. As she focuses on her health and recovery at what is clearly a hard and personal time, we will work with her representatives to honor her request to end all future work for the network.
After thanking her fans for their support, Braxton promised to "do everything in my power to aid those who [suffer] from mental illness, including those of us [whose] mental illness was only a result from the toxic, systematic bondage that dwells [in] television".
Tamar, 43, now has two series slated to air on WE tv: her family's reality show Braxton Family Values, which has aired six seasons to date, and her forthcoming project, Get Ya Life! "I was betrayed, taken advantage of, overworked, and underpaid", she wrote in a lengthy thread Thursday on Twitter.
'I wrote a letter over 2 months ago asking to be freed from what I believed was excessive and unfair. "I explained in personal detail the demise I was experiencing", she recalled.
Tamar went on to claim that the aforementioned "letter" was ignored.
Immediately, Braxton shared the role the network has played in her mindset as of late.
To try and rectify her issues with We TV, she admits to sending the network an email. However the demands persisted. She warned them she was suicidal, accused them of exploiting secrets she was not yet willing to share and blamed them for turning her family members against one another, the Blast reported.
The 43-year-old, who gave herself the middle name "Slave" on her Twitter account, blamed the culture of reality TV for damaging her mental health and pushing her to the point where she tried to take her own life. She's promising to change the system by working to "establish the initiative that fights for ethical business practices".
Just hours before the episode was to scheduled to launch a note was posted, "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) 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".
Braxton's mental deterioration worsened as the "Braxton Family Values" reality show rose in popularity, and she said it almost "killed" her.
