Tamar Braxton’s “Love and War” relationship with WeTV has officially ended.
The network issued a statement on Friday, obtained by Page Six, which said it would “work with its representatives to honor their request to end all future work for the network.”
Braxton’s recent suicide attempt and his previous struggles for mental health were, as he revealed both in a letter on the net and in an Instagram post on Thursday, inextricable from his battles with the net. WeTV currently has two Braxton series: “Braxton Family Values,” now in its seventh season, and the upcoming “Get Ya Life!”
Sources told Variety that Braxton, 43, was involved in at least a few more episodes of “Braxton̵7;s Family Values,” which had begun production before his last fights. “Get life now!” it had already been delayed earlier this week based on Braxton’s situation, but Variety sources believe that the six episodes of the show’s first completed season will hit planning starting September 10th.
“Tamar Braxton has been an important part of our networking family for over a decade,” the WeTV statement reads. “Because he focuses on his health and recovery in what is clearly a personal and difficult time, we will work with his representatives to honor his request to end all future work on the network. We do not wish him the best.
Braxton communicated several grievances against the network in a letter he sent to WeTV television weeks before his suicide attempt, which he reported exclusively on page Six.
Braxton responded to a note the network sent in which he set out his efforts to support the black community, with a fiery letter comparing his television bosses to “cruel masters of white slaves who previously chained our ancestors and with the oppressive police forces that now terrorize our communities.
“I hope the assessments were worth it because you managed to destroy a big black family.”
He also blamed them for revealing the secret of his sexual assault and rape of his childhood “in front of my whole family and 100 crew members,” noting that he had previously kept it secret even of her mother and that the resulting shame pushed her to reflect. end your life.
A family member told Six Six that Braxton was also concerned about the choice of “Love and Hip Hop” producer Mona Scott Young to direct “Get Ya Life!”, Saying Tamar was ambushed. … [by the hiring of] the person he said he didn’t want to work with. ”
On Thursday, Braxton, in his Instagram post, Braxton claims that he was “betrayed, exploited, worked and poorly paid” by WeTV, adding that “Real TV personalities have no union, no protection. nor any formal representation that protects our work, our rights, our voices, ”before committing ourselves to fighting for ethical business practices on television in reality.
Variety notes that Tamar “has so far been the second highest paid talent in the history of WEB television, behind her sister Toni.”
Tamar was hospitalized on July 16 for what was initially thought to be a drug overdose.
