Singer Tamar Braxton attends the Def Jam Celebrates NBA All Star Weekend at Milk Studios in Hollywood With Performances by 2 Chainz, Fabolous & Jadakiss, Presented by Patron Tequila at Milk Studios on February 16, 2018 in Hollywood, California.

Tamar Braxton opened up for the first time since her attempted suicide and alleged physical abuse on Wednesday (Oct. 28) on Tamron Hall.

The interview comes just three months after news broke in July that Braxton had been rushed to the hospital following an alleged suicide attempt. Things got heavier last month when her former fiancé David Adefeso filed for a restraining order and claimed she attacked him.

"I am a survivor of a domestic violence relationship," the TV personality told Hall of the allegations. "And not at any point was David and I in an abusive relationship.”

Braxton went on to note that audio and video recordings of the incident exist. "I voice-recorded it, he video-taped it," she explained. "He has a camera in his car."

When Hall asked if the video or audio shows "any physical abuse," Braxton replied that it didn't. "He has the video tape. He has it. It was in his car. Release it," she said.

“No, let me tell you something that I loved David," Braxton continued, getting emotional. "He was my best friend. He was an amazing, amazing partner. He was my son's best friend as well, they were best friends. And it's just so hard because through everything else I expected from him. Now, I have to be real with myself. Is he acting like this because he found me the way that he found me? Probably. I don’t know. ”
