Tamar Braxton’s boyfriend has reportedly filed a domestic violence restraining order against her.
David Adefeso has asked for protection against the 43-year-old singer, actress and television personality, according to a Tuesday report from TMZ. But a source has told The Blast that he was the aggressor as the two got into a heated fight in a car as she was on her way to a mental health facility.
This comes as a surprise to her fans because in early August she thanked her ‘angel’ beau for ‘saving her life’ after she allegedly tried to commit suicide in July.
The site said David went to court in Los Angeles on Tuesday.
He described the situation as one that could be about domestic violence, which he is trying to prevent. It is not yet known if the restraining order was granted by the courts.
DailyMail.com has reached out to her representative for comment but did not hear back before publishing.
Soon after a source told The Blast that the two got into a fight inside a car. The insider told the site that she asked her boyfriend why he posted a photo with her son, aged seven.
She then allegedly told David he was ‘around for the wrong reasons and could not be trusted.’
The source then claims that Adefeso threatened to kill her and himself in a murder suicide.
It was then added by the source that he grabbed her hard and she only grabbed him back as a reaction.
David has appeared with her on her reality TV show Braxton Family Values which aired from 2011 until 2019.
Braxton posted a lengthy message on social media in August that paid tribute to Adefeso being her ‘angel on earth.’
She said she is grateful for Adefeso who found her ‘lifeless’ in their home, saying it ‘couldn’t have been easy’ for him as he called 911.
The R&B singer did not provide details about her hospitalization. Police only confirmed they responded to a medical emergency July 16 at the downtown Los Angeles high rise that she calls home.
‘Through this entire time, you have held my hand, heard my cries, held me when I have been weak. You have had my ENTIRE back!!’ she said in the post.
Braxton shared the post along with an older video of the couple talking about getting engaged. She called Adefeso and her seven-year-old son Logan, whom she shares with former husband Vincent Herbert, a priority.
‘Although I been said yes in this old video… now and then, I couldn’t imagine what life would be like if you weren’t by my side,’ she wrote. ‘Thank God I’m here and thank God for you.’
Adefeso replied to Braxton’s post with a short message.
‘I love you. You love me. We love Logan. Together forever,’ he said with emojis including one of a diamond ring.
Though Tamar released her debut album in 2000, she made a splash in pop culture when she and her sisters, including Grammy-winning icon Toni Braxton, launched their reality series Braxton Family Values on WEtv in 2011. It was an insta-hit, with Tamar shining as the show’s breakout fan favorite.
The series helped propel her music career.
She had the R&B hit Love & War soon after and even earned three Grammy nominations for her music, two for the song and one for the album of the same title.
The success led to a WEtv spinoff Tamar & Vince with her then husband-manager Vincent Herbert, a music executive who played a role in Lady Gaga´s career. She filed for divorce from Herbert in 2017.
From 2013 to 2016, Tamar was one of the co-hosts of the daytime talk show The Real, earning two Daytime Emmy nominations alongside the other hosts for outstanding entertainment talk show host. She competed on ‘Dancing with the Stars’ during her daytime TV stint.
Her 2015 album, Calling All Lovers, helped her nab a fourth Grammy nomination, and her last album was 2017’s Bluebird of Happiness. Her music has won her a BET Award and three Soul Train Music Awards.
She most recently appeared on VH1’s To Catch a Beautician, a series about hairstylists who wrecked their clients’ hair. Her WEtv reality series called Tamar Braxton: Get Ya Life! was expected to premiere last week, but has been postponed to September 10.
