Five months after attempting to take her own life,Tamar Braxton has opened up about her decision, revealing that at one point, she felt her 7-year-old son, Logan, deserved a better mother.
Braxton, 43, shared her thought process through tears on Facebook Watch series, “Peace of Mind With Taraji,” hosted “Empire” star Taraji P. Henson.
“Logan was the reason why I made that decision,” the songstress told Henson, 50, in a clip shared by Entertainment Tonight.
“I just felt like he deserved better. I felt like I was embarrassing him, being a fool on TV.”
Tamar Braxton has appeared on several WeTV reality shows since the 2011 premiere of “Braxton Family Values.”
Most recently, the star filmed her own series, “Tamar Braxton: Get Ya Life,” which documented her suicide attempt.
“You thought he would be better without you?” Henson asked, with Braxton replying, “I thought in that moment.”
“Because I knew that’s not what my whole life really was,” she continued. “That’s not who I was. I didn’t want him to be embarrassed in front of his friends,” Braxton added. “Here is this loudmouth ghetto mama.”
Braxton was rushed to the hospital on July 16 after being found unresponsive at the Ritz-Carlton Residences in downtown Los Angeles.
Soon after, fans and celebrities, including Viola Davis and Mariah Carey reached out to the R&B star with well wishes.
