“David constantly acted like he wanted to be behind-the-scenes and didn’t want to be on camera, but when production began he was always trying to be on camera. Even when he wasn’t scheduled to be in a scene,” they said.  “He would make sure that he was involved in some way and would make the scene about him, so that he could get more time on camera. He wanted this to be the ‘David and Tamar’ show.”

Braxton’s older sister Towanda denies rumors the family has spoken to TMZ. Towanda is calling for the reports she says are false to cease.
