Back in December, Star
reported that tensions were building
on-set at The Real
between Tamar Braxton
and the cast and crew. Now, Tamar has been fired, and nobody is safe from the hell-storm that has followed.
Late Saturday, Tamar posted a cryptic message to her Instagram account claiming that someone close to her had betrayed her. "I have been stabbed in the back by someone I stupidly trusted ( not my man or my sisters)... you are very smart and can figure things out on your own," she said.
"Know that every one who smiles in your face is NOT your friend and is NOT cheering for you and will LIE and try and tear u down to TRY and dim your light. ... And if you thought for 1 sec u played me.....In the late great Prince and the amazing Beyoncé voice you PLAYED yourself... WATCH YOUR BACK."
Within hours, news broke that she had been fired from her hosting gig on The Real, which the show later confirmed. "The Real and Tamar Braxton have mutually decided that Tamar will not be continuing with the show for its upcoming third season,” an alleged joint-statement read. “She will be leaving in order to concentrate on her solo career. Everyone associated with The Real appreciates Tamar’s efforts and the contributions she has made to the show’s success, and we wish her all the best for the future.”
However, multiple sources claim that there is way more to the story. According to gossip site Love B. Scott
, Tamar was dismissed because she was too hard to work with! "Tamar Braxton just got fired from The Real
," a source told the outlet. "She wasn’t reading too well with the audience and sales people didn’t find her to be a good fit with advertisers. Also, production found her too difficult to deal with."
But last night, Tamar's former assistant Mr. L Davis took to Twitter, blasting The Real producers for their alleged lies. "Was she a diva before or after she was the ONLY host that drove herself to work while everyone else demanded car service," he asked.
"And missing shows," he continued. "The lady almost died and y'all showed up talking about 'take your time'... So don't be lying talking about joint statement and talking about she left to focus on her solo career cuz that's a lie," he insisted. "Nobody knew Tamar wasn't coming back for season three. We just did a WHOLE photo shoot for season three."
He also hinted at the identity of the perpetrator, saying that they, "Done sat in that lady house crying and sh*t only to turn around and be mad she was sick?"
Fans, however took things a step further, flat out accusing her co-hosts of conspiring against her! Since Tamar's firing, each of her former co-hosts has scrambled to post encouraging messages to Tamar on their social media accounts, but fans remain unconvinced. Conspiracy theories have been rampant, alleging that Tamar had un-followed all of her co-hosts except for Adrienne Bailon
, proving that they were culpable. Others have blamed Adrienne, with one fan saying, "She broke up the Cheeta girls and 3LW I don't trust her!"
Meanwhile, other fans have pointed fingers squarely at Tamara Mowry, who admits they've had their differences.
