Tamar Braxton is renown for her outspokenness, but this time it’s for a wholly serious cause.

The R&B star has been a firm fixture in the headlines over the last year, thanks to the implosion of her marriage to Vince Herbert and more recently due to falling out with WE tv (along with her sisters) over payment for their reality show ‘Braxton Family Values.’

Per reports, the latter – and the infighting it’s caused amongst the family – has seen the clan sit down with Iyanla Vazant for a special intervention.

However, during the taping, Tamar is seen walking out.

When discussing the moment on a soon-to-air episode of The Wendy Williams Show (during which she also confirmed that she served her ex with divorce papers), the singer shocked the audience by revealing that her exit was because the secret abuse she received at the hands of family members was brought up.

Opting to get in front of the matter, she’s issued a statement further elaborating and released a video for the song ‘Prettiest Girl’ (from her ‘Love & War’ album) to celebrate overcoming.

All awaits after the jump…

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.

We wish her the best.
