Tamar Braxton is opening up about her suicide attempt over the summer.
In her first interview, the 43-year-old reality star sat down with Tamron Hall on Wednesday (October 28), to talk about what happened over the summer, while also revealing that she has contemplated suicide multiple times.
“Were you at home at the time?” Tamron asked Tamar. “Did you take pills?”
After a few moments, Tamar responded: “It’s so hard to say, Tamron, because I feel like there’s a responsibility for- you know, I call them family, my fans, who watch. I don’t want to give any examples. But what I will say is, that was my lowest point of life.”
Tamron then asked if Tamar had ever consider taking her life before.
“I’m just going to be a hundred percent. There has been a time where I wanted to,” Tamar said.
Tamron asked, “But this was the first time you acted on it?” To which Tamar replied, “Yeah.”
Back in July, Tamar‘s then-boyfriend David Adefeso called 911 after he found her unconscious in the Los Angeles hotel room where they were staying. It was reported at the time that she had been drinking and had also taken pills. She was hospitalized, and after a few days of being responsive and receiving treatment, Tamar was transferred to a mental health facility.
Later in the interview with Tamron, Tamar said that she has not attempted since that night.
“It’s been a lot of dark, hard times,” she said. “I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety due to a circumstance.”
Tamar also said that she is not on any medication at the moment, but she is in counseling “every single day.”
