As word hit the streets, the singer posted a statement on Instagram, leaving her fans to believe her castmates, who Tamar consistently called her friends, were behind her being fired from the cast.

I love u all but I have been stabbed in the back by someone I stupidly trusted ( not my man or my sisters) I am not about to be tried and tested to snitch (👀) and it's not in good taste to tell you who...... but as #tamartians you are very smart and can figure things out on your own. But know that every one who smiles in your face is NOT your friend and is NOT cheering for you and will LIE and try and tear u down to TRY and dim your light. Thank GOD HE HOLDS MY FUTURE AND MY HAND! (Remember who u are)....I am Tamar Braxton. And if you thought for 1 sec u played me.....In the late great prince and the amazing BeyoncĂ© voice you PLAYED yourself😂 to God be the Glory and I will be taking a short break from ALL social media...until then?? yourself and WATCH YOUR BACK ( I put this picture up cause this is the embrace I got from my sister and best friend that she ALWAYS gives when she knows I've been had)

Tamar’s fans, her Tamartians, who are known for going hard and always having her back, were there to defend Tamar during her social media hiatus. They took their concerns and expressed their feelings towards her “friends” or “frienemies,” Jeannie Mai, Adrienne Bailon, Loni Love, and Tamera Mowry-Housley, to their personal Instagram accounts.

According to Atlanta Daily World, the real reason executive producers fired Tamar from the show was due to, “on-set insubordination, negative feedback on her ‘ghetto’ persona received from focus groups on the daytime talk show, and advertiser complaints about not wanting her in their segments."

The co-hosts then spoke up about their take regarding Tamar being fired. They each posted their love for the singer on their social medai accounts. Loni Love went the extra mile, and released a video detailing how she found out Tamar will no longer be joining the cast for season 3 in the fall. She denied all speculations of her being aware of the situation prior to it happening.

But in true Tamar fashion, nothing can nor will stop her from being number one and winning in the entertainment industry. Sometimes you fall, but you dust your knees off and get right back up.

She returned by not only posting a picture of her favorite meal at Shake Shack, but with exciting news about a new venture.

Tamar revealed on the Steve Harvey Morning show that she just landed her own talk show. Steve Harvey will be producing the program with his production company, and Endemol Shine, the producers of his talk show. Harvey is a firm believer in Tamar, even after all the drama that erupted between her and The Real.

The camera crew for her reality television show, Braxton Family Values, captured her older sister, Toni Braxton, comforting Tamar as she cried in her arms, blindsided about getting fired.

Big Sean Confronts Nipsey Hussle's Killer In Thoughtful Video

Fans are still processing the death of Nipsey Hussle. While some people have expressed anger and sorrow, others are channeling their emotions in different ways. Big Sean shared a powerful video message on Instagram on Monday (May 20) about Nip's passing and even addressed his killer.

"You know what I wanted to say was to the person who murdered Nipsey and to people like that who take somebody’s life out of impulse or for revenge or whatever the case may be—you’re making a permanent solution to a temporary problem," Sean said. "Obviously that’s not how you solve problems. I don't know if we know the value of a life for real, because when you take somebody’s life, dog—you’re setting back their family. You’re setting the whole lineage back—generations. What I mean by that is, I know for a fact my grandma was working for my mom and for me and my brother. I don’t even have kids—I’m definitely already working for my kids and my kids’ kids. When you take somebody’s life, you’re setting all that back. And for what? For something that could have been communicated better?"

Although Big Sean doesn't say his name in the video, he is likely referring to Eric Holder, who was arrested for allegedly murdering Nipsey Hussle outside of his Los Angeles clothing store in Mar. 2019. Police say Hussle was shot after he and Holder got into an argument.

Sean also pointed out the difficulties black men have with communicating their feelings. "It takes a lot of effort. I’ve noticed that men, and in Black men, we're taught to communicate certain ways," he continued. "We're taught to be tough, we're taught to stand tough and get your revenge and retaliate through violence and all that type of shit. But you know, we’re going to keep losing kings!"You can view Sean's message for yourself below.

Florida Teacher Arrested For Carrying Knives And Loaded Guns In Classrooms

A fourth-grade teacher at Starkey Elementary School was arrested Monday (May 20) after authorities found knives, a 9mn Glock with seven rounds of ammunition and other weapons.

According to reports, the 49-year-old had the weapons, including a six-inch fighting knife and a two-inch finger knife, in classrooms with students.

Reportedly, Starkey Elementary School principal saw Betty Soto behaving suspiciously as she carried the backpack with her wherever she went.

Law enforcement arrived on campus after being notified by the principal. They interviewed Soto and found the weapons. The teacher reportedly was let out on bond at 9 PM Monday night and when asked by reporters why she brought the weapons to school she attributed it to Gov. Ron DeSantis.

"Ask Desantis," she answered. "Ask your governor."

In early May, the Republican governor signed a bill that will allow teachers to carry guns inside a classroom. The measure was a reported response to the Parkland High School shooting.

Soto's Facebook page will be investigated as part of the overall investigation due to a post that was shared. "Are you surprised I'm a revolutionary? You should have seen it coming. Hate that I was on my way to the plantation, but I had to free some minds."

Erica Kennedy, a mother of two at Starkey Elementary, described Soto's behavior as "militant" and "suspicious."

"She seemed very abrupt, the way she was speaking. I almost felt like she was talking to these kids like she was their parent, you know, just really, a little overboard. So, it made me kind of, something kind of went up in the back of my hair like, hmmm," Kennedy explained.

Soto reportedly will not be returning to Starkey Elementary School.

The naming will take place on June 10 at a ceremony being held for the “Juicy” rapper. Wallace’s family is expected to attend the gathering, which will be held at the intersections of Gates Avenue and St. James Place. The crossroad will reportedly be named Christopher Wallace Way in the forthcoming month.

The news arrives days after Wu-Tang Clan's Staten Island street-naming ceremony. "I'm happy that NYC officials are finally giving the city's indigenous 'hip-hop' music the respect and recognition that it deserves," culture advocate LeRoy McCarthy told Gothamist in 2018. "It took a long time and lots of hard work to advance the Christopher Wallace Way & Wu-Tang Clan District street co-naming, but ya know what, Hip Hop Don't Stop."

Biggie's upcoming ceremony will be open to the public and will start around 12 p.m. ET. His mother, Voletta Wallace, his children, and close friends will be present in his honor.
