Tamar Braxton’s “Love and War” relationship with WeTV is officially over.
The network released a statement on Friday, received by Page Six, stating that it “will work with her representatives to respect her request to end all future work for the network.”
Braxton’s latest suicide attempt and her previous mental health battle were – as she revealed in both a letter to the network and in an Instagram post on Thursday – unfinished 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 perform on at least a few more episodes of “Braxton Family Values,” which had started production before her recent fights. “Get Ya Life!” had already been delayed earlier this week based on Braxton’s situation, but Variety sources believe that all six episodes of the show’s completed first season will air as scheduled and begin September 10.
“Tamar Braxton has been an important part of our network family for more than a decade,” reads WeTV’s statement. “When she focuses on her health and her recovery on 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. “
Braxton sent a number of complaints against the network in a letter she sent to WeTV brass weeks before her suicide attempt, which Page Six exclusively reported on.
Braxton responded to a remark sent by the network describing her 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 that now terrorize our societies.
“I hope these ratings were worth it because you managed to destroy a great black family.”
She also accused them of revealing the secret of her childhood sexual abuse and rape “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 think about ending her life.
A family insider told Page Six that Braxton was also upset about the choice of “Love and Hip Hop” producer Mona Scott Young to run “Get Ya Life!”, Saying “Tamar felt ambush … [by the hiring of] the person she said she did not want to work with. “
In her Instagram post on Thursday, Braxton said she was “betrayed, exploited, overworked and underpaid” by WeTV, adding that “Reality TV personalities have no union, no protective clothing, no formal representation that protects our work, our rights, our voices. , ”Before promising to fight for ethical business practices in reality television.
Variety notes that Tamar “has so far been the second highest paid talent in the history of WE-TV, behind only her sister Toni.”
Tamar was admitted to hospital on July 16 for what was believed to be an overdose of drugs.
