Singer Tamar Braxton has been hospitalized in Los Angeles after she was found unresponsive in her hotel room on Thursday, July 16 following a possible suicide attempt.

The 43-year-old – the sister of Toni Braxton – was found unresponsive by her Nigerian boyfriend David Adefeso at the Ritz Carlton Residences in downtown Los Angeles, the Sun reports.

The publication said her boyfriend called police to report his girlfriend had been drinking before she took an unknown amount of prescription pills.

Ambulances then arrived at the hotel and took her to the hospital. Reports say David believes that it was possible suicide attempt.

According to The Blast, Tamar is in stable condition but still unconscious. She is currently under 24-hour watch at the hospital.

A representative 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.

Police said they were called at around 9.45pm about a 43-year-old woman who had suffered a “possible overdose.”

Her YouTube show with her boyfriend, Coupled & Quarantined had been scheduled to air on Thursday night, but a message posted on their page read;

Hello ya’ll 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.

This comes months after Toni Braxton’s niece died of an overdose in Maryland in April 2019

Lauren Braxton died of heroin and fentanyl intoxication, according to the Maryland Chief Medical Examiner’s office.

Tamar, who had hits with Love and War and If You Don’t Wanna Love Me, has been nominated for four Grammys.

Away from being a singer, Tamar has also made a name for herself in reality TV, currently starring on the WE TV series Braxton Family Values.

The Blast reports that Tamar has been extremely emotional due to an ongoing contract dispute with We TV.

In 2019, she also became the first African American to win Celebrity Big Brother in the US.
