Tamar Braxton Rushed to the Hospital After Shopping with Friends
Tamar Braxton has opened up about a health-related emergency she experienced amid the holiday season and after shopping with friends.
On Friday, the TV personality shared an update on Instagram, telling her followers that she was rushed to the hospital after spending some time with her friends ahead of Christmas
“This isn’t an attention post… this is an ATTENTION post,” she wrote. “Literally I was with my best friends @normankgyamfi and @wardellmalloy shopping and doing Christmas fun s— and the VERY NEXT DAY I had to be taken to the hospital by AMBULANCE, needed oxygen cause I thought God was taking me home cause I could not breathe and my chest was on FIRE!!”
“Yall, I have the FLU ??♀️ and let me tell u it’s worse than COVID in my opinion,” she explained. “I’m on 5 different medications ?..please be careful.. I wasn’t around a lot people and have NO IDEA where it came from.. enjoy y’all holiday AT HOME.. u don’t want this??♀️ .. oh yeah I’m completely isolated cause it’s hella contagious ? I love y’all for real ❤️.”
One clip from the post shows Braxton laughing while hanging out with her friends seemingly prior to the health scare. In another selfie, Braxton can be seen wearing her mask while sitting in a hospital bed.
Her mother Evelyn Braxton, 74, responded to the post by commenting, “Love you. Get well soon Tamar. ❤️.”
In 2020, Tamar was hospitalized after being found unresponsive in her room at the Ritz-Carlton hotel in downtown Los Angeles, according to multiple reports. She later revealed in a lengthy and raw statement on Instagram that she had attempted suicide after suffering “pain” for the past years while working in the entertainment industry as a reality star.
This year, Tamar returned to reality TV after joining The Surreal Life on VH1, telling E! Online in October, “Here we are introducing to the world Tamar 2.0 and I think that you’re really going to enjoy this one.”
