R&B singer Tamar Braxton is leaving her role as co-host on U.S. talk show The Real.
The star made her debut on the daytime programme alongside fellow celebrities Tamera Mowry-Housley, Adrienne Bailon, comedienne Loni Love, and TV personality Jeannie Mai when the show premiered in 2013, but Tamar has decided to move on after two seasons.
A joint statement issued to E! News from Tamar and show producers on Sunday (22May16) read: "The Real and Tamar Braxton have mutually decided that Tamar will not be continuing with the show for its upcoming third season.
"She will be leaving in order to concentrate on her solo career. Everyone associated with The Real appreciates Tamar's efforts and the contributions she has made to the show's success, and we wish her all the best for the future."
The news emerged a day after Tamar announced she was taking a hiatus from social media after revealing her trust had been betrayed by a mystery person.
"I love u (sic) all but I have been stabbed in the back by someone I stupidly trusted (not my man or my sisters)," Tamar wrote beside a photo of herself hugging her sister Toni Braxton.
"I am not about to be tried and tested to snitch (name names)...and it's not in good taste to tell you who...... but as #tamartians (fans) you are very smart and can figure things out on your own. But know that everyone 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)...."
She added, "I will be taking a short break from ALL social media...until then (love) 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)."
