‘I Was So Br-oken’: Tearful Tamar Braxton Thanks Taraji P. Henson For Help During Her Darkest Times


Tamar Braxton is thanking fellow actress Taraji P. Henson for helping her through the darkest times, and not only giving her a platform to discuss me-ntal health but providing a place to begin her own healing.

The ‘Braxton Family Values’ star just shared a lengthy message on Instagram thanking Taraji for bringing her on the actress’s new Facebook Watch show, ‘Peace Of Mind,’ where the two stars discussed Tamar’s struggle with me-ntal health.

During the session, the duo discussed Tamar’s attempt on her own life and being a part of such a powerful and important conversation.

“Dear Taraji, Thank you. Thank you for not only having me on your show but creating a safe place to tell parts of my story so others can see the signs that I didn’t see. I was so ja-cked up back then, that I had no idea that It was ok to feel. You have to feel So you can heal. Many may see this interview and think “ 🙄here comes Tamar again”.

But, that’s not what you saw. You said, “I can’t wait to see her so I can hug her”. 😊You and Traci prayed for me.And cared for me and most of all SAW me. You knew that I was going through a tough time this summer. I was so br-oken I didn’t know what area to fix first,” Tamar began.

She continued, “You started this show and foundation because you know many like me were embarra*sed, as-hamed, and lost And had nowhere to turn… I’m so proud to be apart of such a powerful conversation that you have started.THIS show isn’t about being entertained. It’s about being informed. Thank you for the opportunity to keep me under construction 🚧 and while others watch, may they go and get the help they need to feel and be healed and be seen as me. Thank you for this #peaceofmind I love you, my sister ❤️ .”

In the episode, Tamar Braxton reveals she decided to attempt her own life, believing that her 7-year-old son (Logan) was ‘better off without her.’ “Logan was the reason why I made that decision. I just felt like he deserved better. I felt like I was embarra*sing him, being a fool on TV,” Tamar said breaking down in te-ars. Adding, “I didn’t want him to be embarr*ssed in front of his friends. Here is this loudmouth gh-etto mama.” Taraji reacted to the answer by asking, “You thought he would be better without you?” — “I thought at that moment,” Tamar replied.
