Tamar Braxton made a stunning confession to Wendy Williams on Wednesday, revealing that she was a molested as a child, TMZ reports.
Braxton told Williams that she was molested, not once but several times, by members on both sides of her family. TMZ said sources revealed the audience and Williams were “stunned.” Williams did not press further to inquire about names and Braxton did not specify which family members violated her, the outlet reports.
Braxton is currently in New York for Fashion Week and for promo rounds of Braxton Family Values.
The bombshell announcement was made during a Wednesday taping of The Wendy Williams Show, where Braxton was booked to talk about the drama that unfolded this season on Braxton Family Values. The two-part finale of BFV airs on Thursday, Sept, 27 and Thursday, Oct. 4 at 9 p.m. on WE tv.
Braxton at one point reportedly walked out on the taping with Iyanla, while her family was left without answers. During Wednesday’s taping, Williams, a close friend of Braxton’s, inquired about the session and why she stormed out. When Braxton didn’t answer, the host pressed further, prompting Braxton to tell her truth. It’s not evident if something about the Iyanla question triggered her or if she was not prepared to give full details.
As we reported earlier, the sisters sat down with life coach Iyanla to unravel years of trauma and familial fighting played out during the show’s six seasons. Reports of the taping show Braxton along with her for ur sisters, their mother Evelyn and their father Michael in a small circle with Iyanla at the helm. Another clip shows Toni as she tells Tamar that her outward expressions are too much to handle. It’s unclear if the family will find peace in the presence of the Fix My Life host.
Braxton’s interview with Williams also covered her estranged marriage to her husband Vincent Herbet and the new mystery man in her life.
The full interview is slated to air Thursday at 10 a.m. EST.
