Tamar Braxton is engaged! Following an Instagram post regarding her recent suicide attempt, the singer also took to social media to clear the air regarding her beau David Adefeso, who the singer revealed she’s now engaged to.

“I came here just to say this and then I’m logging off… if you have ever been in recovery or treatment you know that you reflect on a lot of things…so I couldn’t let another day, another second go by without PUBLICLY Thanking my Love [David Adefeso] for saving my life… I’m so grateful,” Braxton wrote in the caption of a video that the singer posted from when she “said yes.” 

“I was in our home lifeless & I’m sure finding me the way that you did couldn’t have been easy. But know that people coming at you saying all this crazy stuff isn’t easy for me. People have called you every name in the book, to deflect from what’s really been going on. Through this entire time, you have held my hand, heard my cries, held me when I have been weak. You have had my ENTIRE back‼️”

“I will not allow anyone to call you controlling or ‘that’s that African man’ like I don’t have a mind of my own cause without THIS African man, I simply would not be here. Everything isn’t political and your love for me is not that. You were here for me when NOBODY was and still is. YOU and Logan are a priority.”

The “Love & War” singer and reality TV star then thanked Adefeso and casually revealed that the two got engaged a while ago. “Thank you for being my Rock and now, my Angel on earth. I love you.. and although I been said yes in this old video… now and then, I couldn’t imagine what life would be like if you weren’t by my side. thank God I’m here and thank God for you,” Braxton wrote. At the end of her caption, the singer also left a heart and a ring emoji. Braxton was previously married to music executive Vincent Herbert, who she shares her son, Logan with. The two wed in 2008 and divorced in 2019.
