US-Sängerin Tamar Braxton spricht erstmals öffentlich über ihren Suizidversuch vor wenigen Tagen. Sie will Menschen mit psychischen Erkrankungen helfen.

US-R&B-Sängerin Tamar Braxton (43, "Bluebird of Happiness") meldet sich erstmals nach ihrem Suizidversuch öffentlich zu Wort. "In diesem gegenwärtigen Augenblick ist es meine einzige Verantwortung, aufrichtig mit mir selbst und mit denjenigen zu sein, die mich wirklich lieben und sich um meine Genesung kümmern", schreibt sie auf Instagram. Dabei bedankt sie sich auch bei allen, die für sie gebetet, an sie gedacht und ihr Liebe gesandt haben. Sie alle seien in ihren "hellsten und dunkelsten Momenten" bei ihr gewesen.

Einsatz für Menschen mit psychischen Erkrankungen

Sie beschreibt, was sie an den dramatischen Wendepunkt in ihrem Leben gebracht hat. Psychische Krankheiten seien Realität. "Es muss normal werden, diese anzuerkennen und wir müssen aufhören, sie mit Scham und Erniedrigung in Verbindung zu bringen. Der Schmerz, den ich in den letzten elf Jahren erlebt habe, hat langsam meinen Geist und meine Psyche aufgefressen", klagt Braxton.

First and foremost, Thank you. Thank you to each and every individual who has prayed for me, thought of me, sent me their love and has showered me with their support. In this present moment, it is my only responsibility to be real with myself and to be real with the ones who truly love me and care for my healing. I have without fail, shared with you my brightest days, and I know that sharing with you what has been my darkest will be the light for any man or woman who is feeling the same defeat I felt just only a week ago. Every one of us has a desire, whether small or big, to make it out of where we come from to an ideal future place that includes, freedom to be who we choose, security for our children and families, and fortune to share with the ones we love. We believe these things can co-exist with just being happy. I believed that, that as a black woman, as an artist, an influence, a personality I could shape my world, and with whom I believed to be my partners, they could help me share my world. Over the past 11 years there were promises made to protect and portray my story, with the authenticity and honesty I gave. I was betrayed, taken advantage of, overworked, and underpaid. I wrote a letter over 2 months ago asking to be freed from what I believed was excessive and unfair. I explained in personal detail the demise I was experiencing. My cry for help went totally ignored. However the demands persisted. It was my spirit, and my soul that was tainted the most. There are a few things I count on most to be, a good mother, a good daughter, a good partner, a good sister, and a good person. Who I was, begun to mean little to nothing, because it would only be how I was portrayed on television that would matter. It was witnessing the slow death of the woman I became, that discouraged my will to fight. I felt like I was no longer living, I was existing for the purpose of a corporations gain and ratings, and that killed me. Mental illness is real. We have to normalize acknowledging it and stop associating it with shame and humiliation. The pain that I have experienced over the past 11 years has slowly ate away at my spirit and my mental.

Sie werde nun alles in ihrer Macht stehende tun, "um denen zu helfen, die an einer psychischen Erkrankung leiden, einschließlich denen von uns, deren psychische Erkrankung nur eine Folge der toxischen, systematischen Unterdrückung war, die das Fernsehen mit sich bringt".

Ihr Freund fand sie bewusstlos im Hotelzimmer

Tamar Braxton war am 16. Juli bewusstlos in einem Hotelzimmer in Los Angeles gefunden worden. US-Medien berichteten übereinstimmend von einem angeblichen Suizidversuch. Ihr Freund David Adefeso, der die Sängerin gefunden haben soll, sagte dem US-Portal "The Blast" vergangene Woche: Tamar Braxton müsse "berufliche und persönliche Kämpfe" ausfechten, "auch ihren Kampf gegen Depressionen". Die 43-Jährige erhalte "die beste medizinische Versorgung, um [...] ihre mentale Gesundheit wieder zu stärken".

Auch ihre große Schwester, US-Sängerin Toni Braxton (52), meldete sich inzwischen zu Wort. "Familie ist alles! Vor allem Schwestern!", schrieb die "Un-Break My Heart"-Interpretin zu einem aussagekräftigen Foto, das sie unter anderem umringt von ihren Geschwistern Tamar, Trina (45), Towanda (46) und Traci Braxton (49) zeigt.
