Tamar Braxton’s “love and war” relationship with WeTV is officially over.
The network released a statement on Friday, obtained by Page Six, stating that it “will work with her representatives to respect her request to complete all future work for the network.”
Braxton’s recent suicide attempt and her previous fight for mental health were – as she revealed in both a letter to the network and in an Instagram post on Thursday – inseparable from her struggles with the network. WeTV currently has two series from Braxton: “Braxton Family Values” – now in its seventh season – and the upcoming “Get Ya Life!”
Sources told Variety that Braxton, 43, is scheduled to appear in at least a few more episodes of “Braxton Family Values,” which had begun production before her recent fight. “Get Ya Life!” had already been delayed earlier this week based on Braxton’s situation, but Variety’s sources believe that all six episodes of the show’s completed first season will be aired as scheduled for September 10th.
“Tamar Braxton has been an important part of our network family for more than a decade,” reads WeTV’s statement. “As she focuses on her health and recovery on what is clearly a difficult and personal time, we will work with her representatives to respect her request to complete all future work for the network. We wish her only the best. “
Braxton sent a series of complaints about the network in a letter she sent to WeTV brass weeks before her suicide attempt, which Page Six reported exclusively on.
Braxton responded to a note sent by the network describing its efforts to support black society, with a fiery missive comparing her TV bosses to “cruel white slave masters who once chained our ancestors and the oppressive police forces now terrorizing Our society.
“I hope these assessments were worth it because you managed to destroy a great black family.”
She also accused them of having revealed the secret behind her sexual assault and rape from childhood “in front of my whole family and 100 crew members”, noting that she had previously kept it a secret from even her mother and that the resulting shame pressured her to consider ending his life.
A family insider told Page Six that Braxton was also confused over the choice of “Love and Hip Hop” producer Mona Scott Young to run “Get Ya Life!”, And said “Tamar felt transferred … [by the hiring of] the person she said she would not work with. “
In her Instagram post on Thursday, Braxton said she was “betrayed, taken advantage of, overworked and underpaid” by WeTV, adding that “Reality TV personalities have no union, no protective coat, no formal representation to protect our work. , our rights, our voices, ”before promising to fight for ethical business practices in reality television.
Variety notes that Tamar “so far has been the second highest paid talent in WE TV history, only behind her sister Toni.”
Tamar was hospitalized on July 16 for what was initially thought to have been an overdose of medication.
