WE tv plans to “work” with representatives of Braxon to “honor its request to end all future work of the network,” according to a statement obtained by Variety Friday. Sources told the outlet that she will still appear in a few episodes of Braxton Family Values which were filmed before the singer’s hospitalization. She also completed six episodes of Get Ya Life!, which will begin airing on September 10. The new show was scheduled to air this week, but the premiere has been postponed.
“Tamar Braxton has been an important part of our family of networks for over a decade,” the WE tv release continued. “As she focuses on her health and recovery in what is clearly a difficult and personal time, we will work with her representatives to honor her request to end all future work of the network. We only wish him the best.
Braxton was rushed to hospital on the night of July 16 when her boyfriend, David Adefeso, found her “unresponsive” at her home at the Ritz Carlton residences in Los Angeles. Adefeso told the 911 dispatcher Braxton was drinking and taking prescription pills earlier. In an apparent suicide note written to family members obtained by The breath, Braxton would have called herself a “slave” and felt that she did not “own my life”. Braxton reportedly wrote: “I asked my massa to release me. I am threatened and punished for it. The only way to see is death. I’ll choose this before I keep loving [SIC] like that. Help me please. ”
Braxton, 43, broke his silence Thursday in a new Instagram post, thanking his fans for their support. Braxton said he wrote a letter to WE tv two months ago asking to be released from her “excessive and unfair” contract, but was ignored. She also spoke about why a union is needed for reality TV stars and promised to help create one. “I will make it my mission to put in place the initiative that fights for ethical business practices in reality TV, fights for ownership of our businesses, fosters the growth and evolution of our stories, and gives us 100 % fairness in our freedom, ”Braxton wrote. “My love for my support system and all those who chose to love me when I loved myself no longer is endless and I am eternally grateful. ”
