Wendy Williams Denies Tamar Braxton & David Adefeso Split After Clarifying Breakup Rumors With Tamar

Wendy Williams denies that Tamar Braxton and David Adefeso have broken up despite her cryptic messages on social media and her sudden Instagram cleanse. 

On "The Wendy Williams Show," Williams herself couldn't help but save her friend Tamar from the rumors swirling of her alleged breakup from boyfriend David Adefeso. 

Fans were taken by surprise when they saw Tamar's Instagram page clear of any photos.

While her cryptic messages and Instagram cleanse pointed towards an alleged breakup, Wendy says that's actually not the case. In fact, it had nothing to do with her relationship.

People were torn about the recent Instagram cleanse that Tamar Braxton did, where she deleted all of her posts on Instagram. Fans thought this was a sign that she ended her relationship with David Adefeso, but some of them noticed that David still had all his pictures of Tamar up on his own Instagram account. 

Another rumor that swirled around was that "Braxton Family Values" got canceled, and Tamar didn't take it very well which led to the Instagram cleanse. Thanks to her good friend Wendy Williams, fans finally got their answers. 


Tamar's Instagram cleanse was an effort for Braxton to "re-brand" herself, and was not actually connected to a breakup or cancelation. She is still with David Adefeso and wanted to keep their relationship a lot more private than how it used to be in hopes of preserving it. 

Likewise, Williams also made clear that "Braxton Family Values" did not get canceled, and the family still has their main show that fans can look forward to.

Yesterday my @tamarbraxton , Beans and I hosted our first thanksgiving dinner as a family. My dynamic 80 year old mom, sister, brother-in-law and niece as well as more than 30 close friends of ours attended. We had a blast!!! It always amazes me to see how Tamar and my family took to each other from the moment they met back in Nigeria; they love her and she loves them right back. During dessert my mom stood up to speak and she called Tamar her daughter. I wasn’t surprised: my family took to Tamar’s gorgeous simile, deep kindness and infectious sense of humor almost as strongly as she took to my family’s deeply Christian, conservative, African roots. But what if my family hadn’t accepted her? As with a lot of African American families, many African parents and families tend to get too overly involved in their children’s relationships and married lives, often to the detriment of the young couple’s relationship (heck, I’ve seen some of my friends’ moms move into the couple’s home right after they got married, which so often makes life miserable for the daughter-in-law). I vowed that I would never put Tamar through the misery I’ve seen other couples go through with the man’s family. So I informed my family early on that they didn’t have a choice! They either love Tamar the way they love me and accept her the way I accept her....or they risk losing me completely. Needless to say, I needn’t have worried!! My mom treats Tamar like her 4th daughter (I have 3 sisters) and Beans like her 13th grandchild, my sisters cherish her the way they do each other, and my brothers adore my @tamarbraxton almost as much as I do. Welcome to the Adefeso family, Tamar!! I am so grateful and give thanks that God brought you and Beans into my life. A word to all the young, strong brothas out there who are in relationships with our beautiful black sistas: please stand up for your girl! Once you pick her she becomes your #1 in life; and she comes before the rest of your family: before your mom, sisters, and before even you!! And that’s how to keep a happy home! #happythanksgiving #godblessournewfamily ❤️❤️❤️❤️

Fans were taken by surprise when they saw Tamar's Instagram page clear of any photos, which led to them assuming many different things. Now that Williams brought it up, some were not happy with the fact that the TV host spoke on behalf of her friend as if it were her business. 

"I don't know who would want a friend like Wendy, she be telling the world your business."


Another spoke up about the power that social media currently has on the world, as it seems to affect how people perceive reality in general. 

"Can't believe we in a world where deleting social media content means your life is in shambles."

Now that everything has been cleared up, fans are waiting to see how Tamar will be "re-branding" her Instagram as she planned.
