The singer/reality star  revealed she was molested as a child during an appearance on The Wendy Williams Show on Thursday, saying she’s been too afraid to talk about it publicly until now.

“I’ve been battling myself about whether or not I want to say what happened or not … I’m Tamar and I’m real, right?” she told host Wendy Williams. “A lot of things happened in my childhood that I was too afraid to talk about. Too ashamed to talk about. But the truth of the matter is I have been molested by both sides of my family.”

Starts around the 9:01 mark.

The  singer further explained her decision to share the difficult details of her past in an emotional Instagram post

tamarbraxtonToday 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 noneedTBshame.com

Tamar Braxton Reveals Shocking Molestation Secret

Bfv GIF

The singer/reality star visited the show to promote ‘Braxton Family Values’ and to discuss a recent family visit with Iyanla Vanzant of OWN’s Iyanla: Fix My Life during which the guru unsuccessfully tried to mediate a conflict between Braxton and her sister.

According to TMZ, Braxton answered the question by revealing she had been molested as a child by several family members to the shock of the host and the audience. Braxton didn’t name any specific names and did not disclose any further details about the alleged incidents. Williams did not ask follow-up questions about the assaults.

In a PEOPLE exclusive sneak peek at Braxton’s Thursday interview during the season 10 premiere week on The Wendy Williams Show, she gushes about him publicly for the first time.

“I’ll describe him: he’s African, he’s in wealth finance, he’s got dreads and he’s got a really nice body,” host Wendy Williams says before Braxton excitedly interrupts: “He’s fine! Hallelujah!”

“I met him at a friend’s birthday party, thank you God, he’s so fine! I can’t take it sometimes. It’s like a whole snack — a Lunchable!” the singer says. “He lives in L.A., he’s originally from Nigeria, but he lived here for a while.”

Though she shares that they’ve been dating for “about three months,” Braxton reveals, “It feels like forever” and she’s “very much” in love.

When Williams asks if Braxton has been thinking about marriage, she says coyly, “Depends on if I’m asked or not.”

Charlamagne Tha God In the Clear After D.A. Refuses to Reopen Sexual Assault Case

Image result for charlamagne tha god wwhl

Last week it was reported, Charlamagne Tha God’s 2001 rape case will not be reopened.

South Carolina Ninth Circuit Solicitor Scarlett A. Wilson issued a statement on Thursday (July 12), noting that criminal charges against McKelvey were resolved in 2002 pursuant to a plead agreement between him and the state. The state allowed McKelvey to plea guilty to the lesser charge of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and agreed to dismiss the remaining charges against him.

Here’s an update on the situation.

Charlamagne Tha God will not re-face charges of sexual assault because officials said they must honor the plea agreement they struck with the radio personality years ago.

According to Solicitor Scarlett Wilson in Berkely County, South Carolina, “the State allowed Mr. McKelvey to plead guilty to Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor and agreed to dismiss the remaining charge.”

Off topic… On ‘WWHL’ Charlamagne Tha God says what the common denominator seems to be when you have a falling out with Wendy Williams as has happened to him and Andy Cohen says he can relate.
