WE tv has honored Tamar Braxton’s request to be released from her contract.
The network still intends to move forward with her reality show Get Ya Life! despite her objections.
“Tamar Braxton has been an important part of our network family for more than a decade. As she focuses on her health and recovery at what is clearly a difficult and personal time, we will work with her representatives to honor her request to end all future work for the network. We wish her nothing but the best,” the WE tv statement read.
Braxton will still appear on Season 7 of Braxton Family Values, which also stars Toni Braxton.
Get Ya Life! was originally going to air July 30 but was postponed following Braxton’s suicide attempt on July 16.
Braxton broke her silence and accused WE tv of exploiting her pain.
“I was betrayed, taken advantage of, overworked, and underpaid. 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. My cry for help went totally ignored,” she wrote. “However the demands persisted. It was my spirit, and my soul that was tainted the most. There are a few things I count on most to be, a good mother, a good daughter, a good partner, a good sister, and a good person.”
Braxton's focus will now be on healing, as she also hopes to end the stigma attached to mental illness.
“I am learning to grow through my pain instead of looking for an escape. I’m on an irreversible path to healing. I am taking my time,” she posted. “It is of the utmost importance that I find my happy and health, through professional treatment, for the sake of my whole heart, Logan, who I forgot in my moment of distress and desperation. And giving this journey my undivided attention. My rise will not be in vain.”
Tamar Braxton was rushed to a Los Angeles hospital after what was believed to be a suicide attempt.
Tamar was staying at the Ritz Carlton Residences in Downtown Los Angeles, with her boyfriend David Adefeso. David found Tamar “unresponsive” and called 911 reporting she had been drinking and taken an unknown amount of prescription pills.
Tamar had been in an ongoing contract dispute with We TV, as she has been attempting to get out of her contract. Things worsened when the trailer for Tamar’s new show “Get Ya Life” was released, which blindsided her by as she hated the way it portrayed her.
