On Thursday (9/13) Tamar Braxton,41, sat down for an interview on The Wendy Williams show where she began to talk about some of her darkest moments in life. Braxton told Williams that she was battling on whether she really wanted to talk about what she had been through with her sisters and Iyanla Vanzant from "Fix My Life."
She said “A lot of things happened in my childhood that I was too afraid to talk about. Too ashamed to talk about. But the truth of the matter is I have been molested by both sides of my family.”
After the show finished, the singer took to Instagram to talk about her sit down with Wendy Williams. Braxton began the post by saying:
"Today Wendy asked me what happened at my sisters meeting and why did I walk out. Since someone there decided that they would ask me about something so private, so embarrassing, so secretive in front of EVERYONE that was there, I felt like my life was flashing before my eyes and IMMEDIATELY started to cry."

Today Wendy asked me what happened at my sisters meeting and why did I walk out. Since someone there decided that they would ask me about something so private, so embarrassing, so secretive in front of EVERYONE that was there, I felt like my life was flashing before my eyes and IMMEDIATELY started to cry. Not because someone decided to allow someone else to tell MY SECRET, not because I was asked if it were True in front of a hundred strangers, but because once again my right to choose was taken from me all over again. I decided to Tell Wendy and the world MY secret, MYSELF that I have been a victim of abuse not once, twice, ten, but multiple times by multiple “family members” I’ve never told ANYONE other than Two people in my life and they both have held this close to them. One Being the man that I am with now and EVERY, SINGLE DAY he says I’m so beautiful and my scars makes me even more attractive. I felt that because this has happened to me recently, that something HAD to be done about people who DID know and tried to make People embarrassed and ashamed about something that has happened to them!!! I never EVER again want anyone to feel so little and so small or even ashamed about something they had no control over. I wanted to create a space where you can tell your OWN story with out anyone commenting or making you feel ashamed EVER again!! Go to and tell your story and empower yourself starting today! I wanted you to know that no matter how many scars you have... you are the PRETTIEST 💕 I love you all so much noneedTBshame.com
Braxton has been through a lot in the past few years from splitting from her husband/manager Vincent Herbert, allegeations of infideliity in their marriage, having multiple liens against them and even being as she states "ridiculed" by the pilot of a Delta airlines flight she was on. But on the bright side, she's got a new man and she's happier than she was.
