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 Beyoncé 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.

Lizzo Sued For Defamation By Postmates Driver She Accused Of Stealing Her Food

A former Postmates delivery driver is suing Lizzo for defamation and intentional infliction of emotional distress, two months after the “Truth Hurts” singer put her on blast over a food delivery mix-up.

According to TMZ, Tiffany Wells claims that she received threats, fears for her safety and has been battling stress and anxiety since the incident. Wells claims that while she no longer works for Postdates she remains subject to being humiliated and ridiculed.

In September, Lizzo blasted Wells on Twitter when her food delivery never showed up to her Boston hotel. She tweeted out a photo of Wells and accused her of stealing the food. “She lucky I don’t fight no more,” Lizzo joked.

As it turns out, Wells was actually in the hotel but left because she couldn’t get a hold of Lizzo. Postmates delivery drivers are allowed to leave a location if they can’t get in touch with the customer within a certain amount of time.

Lizzo received backlash for publicly shaming Wells. She later deleted the tweet and apologized. “I apologize for putting that girl on blast. I understand that I have a large following and that there were so many variables that could’ve put her in danger,” she tweeted at the time. “Imma [sic] really be more responsible with my use of social media and check my petty and my pride at the door.”

Lil Nas X Debuts On Forbes’ List Of Top-Earning Country Music Acts

It’s been a good year for Lil Nas X. The 20-year-old’s record breaking “Old Town Road” single helped him make it on the Forbes list of Top Earning Country Acts of 2019.

With an estimated $14 million in income (before taxes), Nas X debuted at No. 18 on the list ahead of Miranda Lambart, Lady Antebellum and Rascal Flats. Country star Luke Bryan topped the list with $42.5 million followed by Zac Brown Band, Keith Urban and Kenny Chesney rounding out the Top 5.

Aside from being the youngest on the roster, Nas X is the only black artist and the only openly gay artist to make the Forbes’ Country Music list.

With a record 19 weeks on the Billboard singles charts, “Old Town Road”  became the longest No. 1 single in history and the first single to earn a diamond certification from the Recording Academy while simultaneously topping the charts.

Earlier in the week, the Atlanta native made history with his win at the CMA Awards and was recently spotlighted in TIME magazine's Next 100 list of influencers.

Naturi Naughton Responds To 50 Cent Targeting Her On Social Media

Naturi Naughton refuses to let 50 Cent get her “out of character.” A week after he apologized for making fun of her hair on social media, 50 Cent posted yet another meme taunting Naughton on Twitter on Wednesday (Nov. 13).

The G-Unit honcho, whose Instagram account was suspended earlier that day, tweeted a meme of Naughton which featured a photo taken during the Power season six mid-season finale screening in New York last month. The tweet went viral but most of the comments were blasting 50 for repeatedly targeting Naughton.

You're disgusting for this.

Naughton hit back on social media on Thursday (Nov. 14). “There’s so much I wanna say but…You don’t have an Instagram account so why waste my characters or come out of my CHARACTER,” she wrote on Instagram next to a tweet that read, “Did we have a fight and I not know about it?”

Though 50 Cent has a reputation for social media bullying, many felt that he crossed the line with Naughton, given the power dynamic. As executive producer of Power, the Queens native is Naughton’s boss. He has yet to publicly apologize again but let’s hope that the 46-year-old rapper is done bothering Naughton.

Read her full response below.
