Tamar Braxton, the star of WE tv’s “Braxton Family Values” and upcoming docuseries “Tamar Braxton: Get Ya Life!” has been hospitalized after being found unresponsive at her residence in downtown Los Angeles Thursday night, according to multiple media reports.

Both TMZ and The Blast reported that Braxton’s boyfriend David Adefeso told police that he believes Braxton was drinking and taking prescription pills, and may have overdosed.

A spokesperson for Braxton provided the following statement to The Blast: “Tamar has had a very tough and emotional day — more information will be coming in the next few days. Please pray for her.”

A WE tv spokesperson told TheWrap the following: “Tamar Braxton has been part of the WE tv family for nearly a decade. We are keeping her and her family in our thoughts and prayers and joining with her fans sending strength and healing at this difficult time.”

Last night at approximately 9:45 p.m. PT, a 9-1-1 call generated from the 900 block of West Olympic St. in downtown Los Angeles, which is the Ritz-Carlton Residences, LAPD’s Officer Eisenman told TheWrap. The call was for a “medical emergency,” and the individual was transported to the hospital.

The LAPD did not provide the individual’s name, age or gender, or the nature of the medical emergency.

Braxton and Adefeso do a live YouTube show called “Coupled & Quarantined” together. Last night’s episode was canceled and replaced with the following statement: “Hello y’all. Unfortunately your girl Tamar is under the weather today and not feeling well so we need to postpone today’s show (don’t worry it’s not COVID). We’re sad because we had a great show lined up for you today, but next week’s show is going to be even bigger and better. So sorry for the inconvenience, we know many of you look forward to the show every week. We’ll make it up to you next week.”
