Tamar Braxton is on the road with Kandi Burruss for the ‘Welcome to the Dungeon’ tour and says she’s too exhausted to go to her 24-year-old niece, Lauren Braxton’s, funeral.
In an Instagram Live session with her fans, Tamar vented about just how ‘drained’ she is.
“I’ve been M.I.A. because I just cannot bring myself to post about my niece. Like, I just can’t do it,” she told her followers in the clip. “But what I did want to say is I want to thank everyone for sending their condolences.”
“I don’t want my sisters or my family to get upset with me, but the things that’s been going on — this is the first time that anybody in my family has passed. Nobody tell you about going to the damn funeral. I don’t have time going to the funeral.”
“I’m still drained from that … It’s a lot,” Tamar added. “Everything happens in God’s divine order and you’ve got to respect it and praise him anyway.”
Page Six notes that her fans in the comments were displeased.
“She ain’t too drained to respond to every damn thing on social media. So self centered, it’s terrible. Drama queen for real,” wrote one user.
Another said he “lost respect” for the performer, writing, “She has enough energy to do her show and to tell everyone to watch the braxton show, but she can’t go to the funeral, i think she would have been better just staying quiet. I know everybody grieves differently, but after watching this, i think she is a very selfish person. Michael is your brother and Lauren was your niece, make time and be with him, he lost a child, that has to be very painful. I used to like Tamar, but now i have lost respect for her.”
“Just say you are not able to attend period since you have enough energy to jump in front of the cameras every 5 minutes for everything else,” posted another.
