THE PREMIERE of Tamar Braxton's new show Get Ya Life! has been postponed as the star focuses on her "recovery" following her "suicide attempt."
Tamar was hospitalized after she was found unconscious by her boyfriend David Adefesco almost two weeks ago in Los Angeles.
According to a statement by WE tv, the network has postponed the premiere of Tamar's new show, Get Ya Life! to September 10.
A spokesperson for the network told Variety that the company's "first concern is for her recovery and well-being.
"Tamar Braxton has been an incredibly important member of the WE tv family for more than a decade, and our first concern is for her recovery and well-being," the WE tv statement read.
"Given the current situation, we are postponing the premiere of ‘Tamar Braxton: Get Ya Life!’ until September 10.
"This series was conceived by Tamar and is a real portrait of a dynamic woman juggling the demands of being a single mother, in a new relationship, and her career.
"We know, when the time is right, Tamar’s fans will relate to seeing this honest portrait of her life, but – at this moment – we are joining with her fans and sending strength and healing in the hope that she is getting the support and help she needs at this difficult time."
Sources close to the network further revealed to Variety that WE tv no longer felt comfortable premiering the series on its initial premiere date, July 30, given the intimate look viewers will get into the singer's life.
The 43-year-old – who is the sister of famous singer Toni Braxton – was found unresponsive by David at the Ritz Carlton Residences in downtown Los Angeles on Thursday, July 16.
David called 911, and the singer was rushed to the hospital by ambulance.
On the call David could first be heard talking to the dispatcher calmly: "My girlfriend is not responding. She's not awake.
"She's been drinking about half – she also took some medication for depression – I don't know how many."
Surprisingly, David then explained to the dispatcher that Tamar had been very "angry earlier" about her new reality TV show, Tamar Braxton: Get Ya Life!
However, TMZ's sources claimed that David reacted poorly to the pilot of his girlfriend's new show Get Ya Life! and his reaction allegedly made Tamar very upset as well.
Family members are allegedly questioning who really had issues with the show as he was reportedly portrayed as "demanding and controlling."
They further claimed they've noticed a change in Tamar since her relationship with the accountant and that her mood swings tend to align with David's feelings.
In the preview for the show, Tamar and David are heard having a fight with production having to intervene as Tamar begins screaming for him to "stop."
Following her being found unconscious, news also broke that she had left behind an alleged suicide note.
The message – obtained by The Blast – read: "I am a slave. I do not own my life. My stories. My pictures.
"My thoughts or beliefs. I’ve asked my massa to free me. I’m threatened and punished for it.
"The only way I see out is death. I will choose that before I continue to [live] like this. Please help me."
According to The Blast: "Tamar drafted a tweet which it appears she was preparing to push out to the world – but decided to send it to several family members instead."
However, new sources have reported that the singer is "alert and responsive."
The reality star was moved to a new hospital for specialized treatment, with sources close to the star revealing that she has been “talking to doctors about her situation and the days leading up to the hospitalization."
As well as a successful singer, Tamar became the first African American to win Celebrity Big Brother in the US last year.
She is the younger sister of Unbreak My Heart singer Toni Braxton, and has had hits with songs including You're Makin' Me High and He Wasn't Man Enough.
Tamar also made a name for herself in reality TV, currently starring on the WE TV series Braxton Family Values.
