Report says Braxton family finds David Adefeso’s behavior suspicious 

TMZ released Adefeso’s emotional 911 call after finding Tamar unresponsive. During the call, Adefeso mentions Tamar’s issues with her network We TV. He explains the network “did something earlier today,” speaking of the release of the trailer for Tamar’s upcoming spinoff Get Ya Life.

Adefeso says Tamar became upset after the trailer dropped and hints to reports of Tamar wanting out of her contract with We TV being true. Adefeso cries, “When are you ever really free,” during the call.

Days earlier, an email Tamar sent We TV slamming the network for exploiting her family drama and her personal trauma was leaked. In the letter, Tamar writes that she feels suffocated by the network and wants out.

According to TMZ, Tamar’s family finds Adefeso’s mention of Tamar’s issues with We TV alarming amid him trying to aid her. A source claiming to be close to the situation told the media outlet that Tamar’s family feels she’s changed since dating Adefeso.

The source alleges the Braxton family believes Adefeso is too involved in Tamar’s business affairs and that he was upset at his portrayal in the trailer, sending an already vulnerable Tamar on a spiral. Adefeso’s behavior to many comes off as controlling, per TMZ.

On behalf of Tamar Braxton, I want to thank her fans and the public for the ongoing thoughts and prayers. Tamar is a beautifully talented woman, a devoted mother, a loving girlfriend, a dear sister and a special friend to countless people. This is an extremely difficult time for Tamar and her family as she navigates professional and personal struggles including her battle with depression. Tamar is currently receiving the best available medical attention to address those struggles and strengthen her mental health, and her family and I will remain by her side throughout her treatment.
