Tuesday, comedian Loni Love took to Facebook with a lengthy video to address certain rumors surrounding Tamar Braxton’s departure from “The Real.” Specifically, she wanted fans to know that she had nothing to do with the singer’s termination.
“As hosts, we don’t have that kind of power,” the comedian explained. “If I had that kind of power, I’d have my own show. I don’t fire people.”
As for speculation that she knew Tamar would be let go before Tamar knew, Loni says that there’s no truth to those rumors either. According to the TV personality, she first got wind of the drama when Tamar sent out a group text to all of the hosts on Saturday afternoon telling them that she suspects she will be fired.
“I got a group text from Tamar. She said, ‘I heard I’m being fired,'” Loni explained.
After receiving the message, Loni attempted to reach out to Tamar; however, the singer has yet to respond or pick up her calls.
“Saturday was the first time I heard that she heard she might get fired. Then that’s when we got a phone call from Telepictures and they confirmed that was she let go.”
Loni went on to say that she will continue to offer support to her friend and that she will not stop reaching out to her until they speak.
