Tamar Braxton had fans very, very concerned on Wednesday night after the singer decided to shave off all of her hair.
The reality star recorded a video of herself chopping off her locks and then posted it on social media for her millions of followers. “Finally free,” Tamar captioned the video.
Braxton’s hair shave comes after having one tumultuous year, including separating from her husband and father of her son, Vincent Herbert. Not to mention, during the very public and toxic split, the Braxton Family Values star suggested that her now estranged husband got another woman pregnant.
So naturally, folks thought that Tamar was having a Britney Spears moment — if you recall, Spears shaved her head 11 years ago after hitting rock bottom.
“When A woman is going through it the hair gets cut EVERYTIME,” someone wrote. “It’s like cutting off all the pain.”
Another Instagram user commented, “God IS our healer! Next rid yourself of his spirit. Hold on to God he will carry you thru the healing process. If this is part of the separation process then you do you like you always do. Continued blessings from God!”
The good news is, the “Love and War” singer followed up with an adorable selfie and further explained why she decided to let her hair go. “Im over feeling captive to a wig, weave, people, people’s comments & opinions hell…even my OWN feelings,” she wrote.
The 40-year-old added, “WE can choose to stop these things from having the power and victory over us!! And for me, that starts TODAY.”
