Tamar Braxton's Statement Over the Controversy

Fans made sure to give Tamar Braxton a piece of their minds, and soon after, she caught up to them and decided to release a statement about everything happening. 

The reality TV star clarified that her statement came after a heated topic with her friends, and clarifies that she wasn't referring to her boyfriend David Adefeso's sexuality in her posts. 

""I shouldn't have been in my feelings & ranted on social media based off a conversation with my friends. I was talking about me but not me and David. I've been through a lot."

Tamar's Openness on Social Media

Although Tamar didn't necessarily apologize for her words, she took them back and acknowledged that sometimes, people make mistakes. 

Braxton has always been open and vocal about her experiences, and it seems she's been going through a lot of controversial things in the past year. 

Just a couple of months back, she revealed that she suffered from an anxiety attack after a stranger offered her drugs while on a plane. Her attack came after losing her niece to a drug overdose.

Expressing a Major Trigger 

Speaking about the incident on her Instagram stories, she said

"Offering drugs to people on a plane should be a CRIME PERIODT!!! I don't do drugs!! And what if I had a problem??!! Well.. I do!! My problem is... I have a problem with drug dealers and people who offer ANY drugs to u!! [That] is not a joke. If I offer drugs to stranger [you] are a DRUG DEALER."

Standing Firm on Her Beliefs

After being offered illegal substances, the airline refused to let the man leave the plane. As the situation put her in a depressive state, she decided to go home and be with her family as the situation triggered her. 

"I'm from Baltimore.. it hits different. I don't do drugs, WON'T EVER do drugs."
