According to TMZ, paramedics were called to the Ritz Carlton in Los Angeles after Braxton’s boyfriend, David Adefeso, found her unconscious inside of her hotel room. She appeared to have consumed an unknown number of pills in addition to alcohol.
Adefeso told police that Braxton was upset earlier in the day and may have attempted to take her own life.
In a statement released to Page Six, Braxton’s family said, “Tamar has had a very tough and emotional day – more information will be coming in the next few days. Please pray for her.”
