Tamar Braxton, 42, was taken to a hospital in Los Angeles after being found unresponsive in her hotel room last week.
And an audio recording of her boyfriend David Adefeso’s frantic call to 911 after he discovered her, reveals that he told the emergency services that she was mixing alcohol with prescription pills and that he was worried that she had attempted suicide as she “left a note earlier”.
In the call obtained by TMZ on Monday, Adefeso told a dispatch paramedic: “She’s been drinking and she’s on medication for depression.”
David then added: “She was very angry earlier on. She’s had trouble with the network, the company she’s working with, and they did something today.”
He can be heard sobbing hysterically in the clip as he blames TV network We TV – who Tamar is involved with as part of her reality show Get Ya Life – for her decline in mental wellbeing amid claims that the star and TV station have been involved in an ongoing contract dispute.
On July 16 the singer was found by David at the the Ritz Carlton Residences in Los Angeles, where the couple were staying.
Los Angeles Police Department Sources confirmed that they had received a call around 9.45 pm, reporting that a 43-year-old female had a medical emergency listed as a “possible overdose.”
A spokesperson for the Braxton Family Values star told The Blast at the time: “Tamar has had a very tough and emotional day – more information will be coming in the next few days. Please pray for her.”
Mirror Online have reached out to a representative for Tamar for comment.
The incident comes after Tamar and David’s Coupled & Quarantined YouTube show was cancelled this week.
They announced that they would not be uploading a new clip with message posted on their page reading: “Hello Ya’ll Unfortunately, Your girl Tamar is under the weather today and not feeling well so we need to postpone today’s show (Don’t worry it’s not Covid).
“We’re sad because we had a great show lined up for you today, but next week’s show is going to be even bigger and better. so sorry for the inconvenience, we know many of you look forward to the show every week. we’ll make it up to you next week.”
