Tamar Braxton says she is going to start channeling her recent struggles into brand new music! The 'Braxton Family Values' star took to Instagram to update fans on how she is dealing with several issues that have plagued the reality star and singer, but instead of information, she promised to deliver her emotions through song. Friends, family, and even a few celebrities flooded Braxton's message with reactions including applauding her for taking this step. Megan Thee Stallion liked Tamar's post on IG, someone who is dealing with her own issues at this moment and seems to agree with the notion of funneling your emotions into music. As we reported, Braxton has been through several high-profile incidents which included being hospitalized for an apparent suicide attempt. At the time, Tamar's boyfriend told operators that the reality star was drinking and had taken an unknown amount of prescription medication. At the time, Tamar's boyfriend remained by her side at the hospital and was joined by her sister Toni Braxton. But, only a few weeks after the scary incident, Tamar was involved with another incident involving her boyfriend, this time a blowout argument where each one accused the other of domestic violence. Tamar's ex-boyfriend filed a domestic violence restraining order against the reality star in Los Angeles and claims she attacked him while he was driving a car on the freeway.
