"The Real" alum Tamar Braxton recounts how she felt when her niece, Lauren, died as she remembers the "beautiful angel" in a sad Instagram post.

The pain following the death of a loved one can be quite terrible, but what makes it worse is that it never really stops hurting.

Tamar's unhappiness as she remembers her niece a year later is proof of this. The singer, who had been feeling blue as the day neared, had her heart shattered on hearing about Lauren's death.

The whole experience, along with where she was and what she was doing when the horrible news came, remains in her memory like it just happened. Braxton is still unable to believe that her niece is dead.

The picture of Lauren as a baby was accompanied by a message from the bereaved aunt. The little one was having cake on a high chair and had a beautiful smile on her face. The photo was captioned:


"…I waited till the end of my day because I didn't want to post this. I'm still in disbelief that It is real. A whole 365 days and nights later…"


Lauren Braxton passed away on the 29th of April 2019 at the young age of 24, in Maryland. Lauren's death was previously believed to have resulted from a heart condition, but that was not the case.

Her cause of death was said to be heroin overdose and fentanyl intoxication, according to Maryland's office of the chief medical examiner, who revealed the details to People.

Tamar loved her niece a lot but was not present at her burial.


Her body was discovered after a 911 call, after which she was found unresponsive when help arrived. The 24-year-old was the daughter of Tamar's older brother, Micheal Braxton, who is a singer and songwriter based in Maryland.

Tamar loved her niece a lot but was not present at her burial because of how drained she was at the time. The reality TV star told her followers about the situation during a live broadcast:

"...this is the first time that anybody in my family has passed... I'm still drained from that… It's a lot."


Tamar's decision did not sit well with her fans, who believed that she had a responsibility to be there, but she chose to do what was best for her and told them to let her grief in her way.

Michael's other siblings, who he sometimes appears with on their family reality TV show "Braxton Family Values," also took to their Instagram pages to pay their respects to their dead niece.
