“My Ace,” Tamar said of her son. “My hero! My shield! My best friend! My rock! The person who cracks me up every day and reminds me that life is worth living even when it’s so hard. You make me see things so differently and I’m grateful for you. God picked you personally for me cause he knew I needed a true Clyde … or in this case, My Logan. I love you son.”
Tamar Braxton suffered a mental breakdown earlier this year that led to attempted suicide. The Reality TV star expressed anxiety over her WE TV show that was, in Tamar’s opinion, edited to show her in a negative light. Braxton reportedly tried to end her contract after seeing the trailer for the then-upcoming series. WE TV executives, however, refused to release the television personality. WE and Braxton cut ties after her suicide attempt.

First and foremost, Thank you. Thank you to each and every individual who has prayed for me, thought of me, sent me their love and has showered me with their support. In this present moment, it is my only responsibility to be real with myself and to be real with the ones who truly love me and care for my healing. I have without fail, shared with you my brightest days, and I know that sharing with you what has been my darkest will be the light for any man or woman who is feeling the same defeat I felt just only a week ago. Every one of us has a desire, whether small or big, to make it out of where we come from to an ideal future place that includes, freedom to be who we choose, security for our children and families, and fortune to share with the ones we love. We believe these things can co-exist with just being happy. I believed that, that as a black woman, as an artist, an influence, a personality I could shape my world, and with whom I believed to be my partners, they could help me share my world. Over the past 11 years there were promises made to protect and portray my story, with the authenticity and honesty I gave. I was betrayed, taken advantage of, overworked, and underpaid. I wrote a letter over 2 months ago asking to be freed from what I believed was excessive and unfair. I explained in personal detail the demise I was experiencing. My cry for help went totally ignored. However the demands persisted. It was my spirit, and my soul that was tainted the most. There are a few things I count on most to be, a good mother, a good daughter, a good partner, a good sister, and a good person. Who I was, begun to mean little to nothing, because it would only be how I was portrayed on television that would matter. It was witnessing the slow death of the woman I became, that discouraged my will to fight. I felt like I was no longer living, I was existing for the purpose of a corporations gain and ratings, and that killed me. Mental illness is real. We have to normalize acknowledging it and stop associating it with shame and humiliation. The pain that I have experienced over the past 11 years has slowly ate away at my spirit and my mental.

Who would have known that someone this little would have such a large impact on a grown person. I’ve allowed this little person to love me, to truly love me through it all. To teach me what real love is. No judgments and whatever I had at anytime, whomever I was, was good enough. I’ve watched this little person grow and show me things about myself that I needed to learn, to change the things about myself that I didn’t like and strive to be better. God truly knows who to send in your life to assist you to being what he wants. He will always have his way. And I’m so glad this path and his way was you being mine. Because without you Beans, the road wouldn’t have been worth it. I love you more than my own life. My own needs. My own Dreams. Nothing is bigger than you. I thank you for all the love and light that you have brought to this entire family. Your bonus Dad @david.adefeso and your dad @officialvincentherbert and I are so blessed to have an amazing gift like you. You have made us ALL better people✨✨✨✨Happy 7th bday beans‼️ we love you so much❤️❤️❤️
Logan is Tamar Braxton’s son with her ex-husband, Vincent Herbert. Stay tuned for more Braxton family news!
