Following her highly publicised attempt at suicide, Tamar Braxton penned an open letter addressing her issues; mental health issues, a reported major betrayal and more. In that letter — Braxton acknowledged that a huge chunk of her issues came from the release of past childhood trauma that she hadn’t been publicly vocal about.
According to Tamar, they’ve done her wrong for more than 10 years.

WeTV executives reportedly betrayed Tamar according to the letter. Tamar openly revealed that part of the cause of her breakdown was the fact that execs revealed that she had been raped in her past. According to Tamar, they revealed that she had been raped from 6 to 17 repeatedly and that she had asked them not to publicly disclose that.
Apart from the many obvious issues of confidentiality breaches, the letter went on to reveal that Braxton felt overworked; underpaid, and not appreciated which actually spurred a response from the network itself.
“First and foremost, Thank you,” she wrote. “Thank you to each and every individual who has prayed for me, thought of me, sent me their love and has showered me with their support.”
“Over the past 11 years, there were promises made to protect and portray my story, with the authenticity and honesty I gave,” the singer said. “I was betrayed, taken advantage of, overworked, and underpaid.”
“Who I was, begun [sic] to mean little to nothing, because it would only be how I was portrayed on television that would matter,” she continued. “It was witnessing the slow death of the woman I became, that discouraged my will to fight. I felt like I was no longer living, I was existing for the purpose of a corporations gain and ratings, and that killed me.”
The network ‘s statement is as follows:
Obtained exclusively by Variety, the network said, “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,” reads the WE tv statement.
