Tamar Braxton claimed she was molested by family members as a child in a new interview, Highlight Hollywood can confirm.
TMZ reported on Wednesday, September 12, that the 41-year-old told Wendy Williams during a taping of The Wendy Williams Show that she was molested by family members on both her mother and her father’s sides. According to the website, Braxton did not name her alleged abusers specifically, and the host chose not to press her for details on the alleged attacks.
The insider added that Williams became emotional when Braxton told her, “You’re my No. 1 friend in my head.” The interview will air on Thursday, September 13.
The topic came up when Williams tried to get more information about why Braxton stormed out of a meeting with inspirational speaker Iyanla Vanzant, which was meant to settle some squabbles among her family, TMZ reported. (Toni, Tamar, Towanda, Trina and Evelyn reportedly walked away from their reality series, Braxton Family Values, in June after failed contract negotiations for the second half of season 6.)
