It’s been quite a week for Tamar Braxton…
While appearing on The Wendy Williams Show on Wednesday, the “Love & War” singer opened up to the talk show host about the recent therapy session she had with her four sisters, mom and life coach, Iyanla Vanzant. When Wendy questioned Braxton about rumors that she stormed out of the session, Tamar revealed she, in fact, did. But the “why” had the audience, and Williams, in shock.
“I have been molested,” Tamar stated, “by both sides of my family.” Wendy, who was visibly stunned, didn’t ask a follow-up question.
However, Braxton shared more of her story on Instagram where she blamed one of her sisters for the hurtful moment because, as she put it, “once again my right to choose was taken from me all over again.”
Tay also explained why she told Wendy her secret and revealed more about the years of abuse she endured. “I decided to Tell Wendy and the world MY secret, MYSELF that I have been a victim of abuse not once, twice, ten, but multiple times by multiple “family members” I’ve never told ANYONE other than Two people in my life and they both have held this close to them.”

Today Wendy asked me what happened at my sisters meeting and why did I walk out. Since someone there decided that they would ask me about something so private, so embarrassing, so secretive in front of EVERYONE that was there, I felt like my life was flashing before my eyes and IMMEDIATELY started to cry. Not because someone decided to allow someone else to tell MY SECRET, not because I was asked if it were True in front of a hundred strangers, but because once again my right to choose was taken from me all over again. I decided to Tell Wendy and the world MY secret, MYSELF that I have been a victim of abuse not once, twice, ten, but multiple times by multiple “family members” I’ve never told ANYONE other than Two people in my life and they both have held this close to them. One Being the man that I am with now and EVERY, SINGLE DAY he says I’m so beautiful and my scars makes me even more attractive. I felt that because this has happened to me recently, that something HAD to be done about people who DID know and tried to make People embarrassed and ashamed about something that has happened to them!!! I never EVER again want anyone to feel so little and so small or even ashamed about something they had no control over. I wanted to create a space where you can tell your OWN story with out anyone commenting or making you feel ashamed EVER again!! Go to and tell your story and empower yourself starting today! I wanted you to know that no matter how many scars you have… you are the PRETTIEST 💕 I love you all so much noneedTBshame.com
