On Thursday during an episode of The Wendy Williams Show, Tamar Braxton revealed that she was molested by multiple family members as a child. 

In an interview with Wendy Willams, William’s asked Braxton about a verbal altercation that happened between her and Iyanla Vanzant which ended with Braxton abruptly leaving the room while calling Vanzant the “devil.”

“I’ve been battling myself on whether or not I wanted to say really what happened or not because everyone wants you to be political,” Braxton told Williams. “But the truth of the matter is that I have been molested, you know, by both sides of my family.” 

The inspirational speaker and Iyanla! Fix My Life star was brought in to help the Braxton family heal by talking out any issues they had with one another. 

Tension has been high among the family on this season of Braxton Family Values. Between sisters, Toni, Traci, Trina, Towanda, and Braxton tour, work, and party disagreements and unfolded secrets. 

After having the session with Vanzant that aimed to relieve tension, Braxton accused Vanzant of doing the opposite by sex shaming her. 

“I never thought that I would sit around the table with Iyanla who’s here to talk about me and my sisters and their problems and to bring that up and sex shame me basically in front of everybody. So, that’s why I got up and walked out,” Braxton told Williams. 

Braxton then posted to Twitter to explain more about the incident between her and Vanzant. 

Yesterday, Braxton also shared noneedtbshame.com with her followers, which is a website she created to offer victims of molestation a safe space to tell their story. 

146 people have already shared their rape and molestation stories on Braxton’s website.
