Singer and reality TV star Tamar Braxton made headlines over the summer due to an apparent suicide attempt, but now she is in the news for a very different reason. Braxton's boyfriend, David Adefeso, has filed a restraining order against her in Los Angeles.

David Adefeso filed a restraining order against former Celebrity Big Brother winner and former Dancing with the Stars contestant Tamar Braxton for what he reportedly described as a domestic violence situation on Tuesday, September 8, according to TMZ. At the time of writing, Adefeso's specific allegations against Braxton have not been released. The Los Angeles court reportedly has not approved the restraining order request yet.

Following Tamar Braxton's suicide attempt in July 2020, David Adefeso was reportedly the one who found Braxton unresponsive in her room at the Ritz Carlton hotel in L.A., and the 911 call came in around 10 p.m., after which EMTs were dispatched. Adefeso stated at the time that she had overdosed on prescription medication and alcohol, and said that she had threatened suicide while noticeably emotional on the same day.

When David Adefeso provided fans with an update on her condition on July 23, he stated that it was "an extremely difficult time for Tamar and her family" as she navigated personal and professional struggles, including with depression. He also shared that he and her family would "remain by her side throughout her treatment." The filing for a restraining order based on alleged domestic violence comes less than two months after he released the statement.

Neither David Adefeso nor Tamar Braxton have released a statement about Adefeso's filing for a restraining order at this point. In the 911 call from Adefeso to EMTs in July following her suicide attempt (via TMZ), Adefeso cited alleged issues between Braxton and We TV, the network where Braxton's new reality show Get Ya Life! was slated to release and the home of the long-running Braxton Family Values. Adefeso appears in the trailer for Get Ya Life:

In a lengthy explanation of her suicide attempt, Tamar Braxton stated that she was professionally "betrayed, taken advantage of, overworked, and underpaid," saying that she made a cry for help that "went totally ignored." She stated that she had written a letter two months previously asking to be freed from what she believed "was excessive and unfair." Braxton hasn't posted on social media since she released the statement via both Instagram and Twitter at the end of July.

The case between David Adefeso and Tamar Braxton is still developing, and only time will tell if Adefeso's request for a restraining order is granted. Stay tuned to CinemaBlend for more in television and movie news, and be sure to check out our 2020 fall TV premiere schedule.
