Grammy nominee Tamar Braxton was hospitalized Thursday night after a possible suicide attempt.

The Blast, who first reported the news, says Braxton’s boyfriend of two years David Adefeso found her unresponsive while at The Ritz in downtown LA.

Adefeso reportedly called 911 and told the dispatcher Braxton had been drinking and had presumably taken an unknown amount of prescription pills. Braxton was rushed to a Los Angeles hospital.

According to various reports, she is in stable condition, but she’s unconscious. She’s also under 24-hour observation.

Braxton and Adefeso have been hosting a weekly show amid the global pandemic, Coupled & Quarantined. Thursday’s episode was canceled. A video was uploaded to Braxton’s YouTube channel with the following message on the screen:

“Hello y’all. Unfortunately your girl Tamar is under the weather today and not feeling well so we need to postpone today’s show (don’t worry it’s not COVID). We’re sad because we had a great show lined up for you today, but next week’s show is going to be even bigger and better. So sorry for the inconvenience. We know many of you look forward to the show every week. We’ll make it up to you next week.”

A spokesperson for Braxton told The Blast, “Tamar has had a very tough and emotional day — more information will be coming in the next few days. Please pray for her.”

Celebrities from Viola Davis to Mariah Carey have expressed their love and well wishes for Braxton.

Braxton’s sister Traci Braxton shared a post on Instagram asking for prayers for “her family.”

Please continue to keep her lifted.
