Friday morning, fans of Tamar Braxton woke up to news that the singer was rushed to the hospital overnight in what is believed to have been a suicide attempt.

Braxton was discovered by her boyfriend, David Adefeso, just before 10:00 PM Thursday, unconscious in their room at The Ritz-Carlton Residences. Braxton was listed as stable condition but unconscious when she was admitted to a Los Angeles area hospital. She is suspected to have intentionally overdosed on pills.

Braxton finalized her divorce from ex-husband and manager, Vincent Herbert, last year. The couple, who had been married for 9 years before slitting in 2017, had some of their marital troubles play out over the air for viewers of the VH1 reality TV show, Braxton Family Values.

The show chronicled the often times combative relationship with Braxton and her family, including sisters Toni, Traci, Towanda and Trinia.

But despite the divorce and reality TV drama, things seemed to be falling in line for the singer, including a new show on VH1 and plans for a WeTV series.

Though not yet confirmed, speculation that Braxton may have attempted to take her life was a surprise to many.

The Braxton family released a statement saying:

“Tamar has had a very tough and emotional day – more information will be coming in the next few days. Please pray for her.”
