Tamar Braxton’s “Love and War” relationship with WeTV is officially over.
The network issued a statement Friday, taken from Page Six, saying it “will work with its representatives to honor its request to end all future work on the network”.
Braxton’s latest suicide attempt and her previous mental health battles were – as she revealed in both letters to the network and in an Instagram post Thursday – unexplained by her battles with the network. WeTV currently has two series from Braxton: “The Braxton Family Values” – now in its seventh season – and the upcoming “Get Ya Life”.
Sources told Variety that Braxton, 43, is scheduled to make an appearance in at least a few other episodes of “The Braxton Family Values,”; which had begun production before her last wars. “Take Ya Jete!” was already delayed earlier this week based on the Braxton situation, but Variety sources believe the six episodes of the show’s first completed season will air as planned, starting Sept. 10.
“Tamar Braxton has been an important part of our network family for over a decade,” the WeTV statement said. “As she focuses on her health and recovery in what is clearly a difficult and personal time, we will work with her representatives to honor her request to end all future work for the network. We wish her nothing better. “
Braxton aired a number of complaints against the network in a letter she sent to WeTV Bronze a few weeks before her suicide attempt, which Page Six exclusively reported.
Braxton responded to a network note sent out describing his efforts to support the black community, with an ardent mission comparing its TV bosses to the “cruel masters of the white slaves who once blackmailed our fathers, and the forces police oppressors who now terrorize our communities.
“I hope those assessments are worth it, because you managed to destroy a big black family.”
She also blamed them for revealing the secret of childhood sexual assault and rape “in front of my whole family and 100 crew members”, noting that she had previously kept it a secret from her mother as well and that the resulting shame pushed her her to meditate ending her life.
A family insider told Page 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 felt in ambush … [by the hiring of] the person she said did not want to work with. “
In her Instagram post Thursday, Braxton says she was “betrayed, exploited, overburdened, and paid” by WeTV, adding that “Reality TV personalities have no union, no protection coat, no official representation protecting the work our rights, our voices, “before committing to fight for ethical business practices on reality TV.
Variety notes that Tamar “has been by far the second highest paid talent in the history of WE tv, after only her sister Toni.”
Tamar was hospitalized on July 16 for what was initially believed to be a drug overdose.
