Tamar Braxton has been through a lot. Some of it is her own doing and in other instances she’s had to overcome some deeply troubling circumstances. What makes her predicaments so prickly is the fact that more often than not, she attempts to process her trauma in very public settings.

This past weekend was no different. Tamar was on a plane to join NeNe Leakes and Wendy Williams for their girls trip when she was approached by a man attempting to sell her drugs. She wrote about the ordeal and the airline’s alleged lack of concern in several posts on her Instagram story.

“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!!! Tht [sic] is not a joke. If i offer drugs to strangers u are a DRUG DEALER

I HATE drug dealers and Drugs!!! They ruin Everything!!!!! ALWAYS (heart broken emoji. sad face emoji)

This asshole offered me drugs on the plane. The airline wanted to take off without sending him off of the flight…even with me on it…As much as I want to go and be with nene and Wendy…I have to go home…I’ve never wanted to kill anyone with my bare hands before…this is a major trigger for me and I’m sure for my family and any person or families who’s dealt with this abuse…I’m from Baltimore…it hits different…I don’t drugs [sic] WONT EVER do drugs but a stranger offering it to me on a plane to cope and the airline eating as if it’s ok…has sent me in a depressive state. Be back as soon as I can…I’m not ok. Meanwhile his high ass is sleeping and I’m having the worse anxiety EVER!!”

Later, Braxton posted a picture of the man who offered her something on her story.

Tamar likely felt triggered by this man because of the passing of her niece Lauren Braxton. As we reported earlier, Lauren, 24, died of a heroin overdose and a fentanyl intoxication earlier this year.

You may remember that Tamar infamously shared that she didn’t have any intention on attending her niece’s funeral because she was too drained. She was met with plenty of backlash but ultimately decided to go.

She later tweeted: “It’s just been so hard because, not only did we have to lay baby girl to rest today but for all the hate, judging, blogs, to say such hateful things about me all because i did not want to post her to see her on my timeline!! That was my baby! I named her!! Who wants to see that??”
