Tamar Braxton Ex's Restraining Order Dismissed ... After Court No-Shows

Tamar Braxton no longer has to keep her distance from her ex-boyfriend ... because we’ve learned his restraining order's been dissolved after neither one of them showed up in court.

Neither Tamar nor the singer's ex, David Adefeso, appeared for their court hearing on the matter Tuesday, so the judge dismissed the case and dissolved the restraining order.

We broke the story ... Adefeso filed for a domestic violence restraining order against Tamar in September and was temporarily granted one. David claimed Tamar attacked him while he was driving his car and threatened to have him killed.

Tamar denied the allegations the following month on "The Tamron Hall Show."

911 AUDIO

As you'll recall ... David was the one who called 911 last summer when he was dating Tamar and reported her alleged suicide attempt. He claimed at the time, her WeTV beef was the reason she wanted to kill herself.

As for why neither Tamar nor David showed up in court ... it's unclear, however, we're told they have not reconciled.

Towanda Braxton Shocks Family with Engagement ... 'Are You Messing With Me?!'

Are you serious?!
@LionsShareNews

Towanda Braxton apparently didn't tell her family she's getting hitched ... which explains the shock her sister, Trina, and mom, Evelyn, had when a photog broke the news to them.

Trina and her mother were at LAX Wednesday when they found out about Towanda's secret, apparently, engagement to family friend and music producer Sean Hall. Check out the video ... the photog tells Trina, and the absolute surprise is written all over her face -- and then she had to break it to the Braxton matriarch.

Ya gotta see Evelyn's reaction too!

PUTTIN' A RING ON IT
@LionsShareNews

Now, the reason the photog had this info is he'd seen Towanda and Sean on Tuesday, and they let the cat out of the bag about getting married.

Somehow, it slipped their minds to clue in Trina and Evelyn ... and we gotta wonder if anyone else in the fam got the engagement alert.

Speaking of the other Braxtons ... Tamar's feud with her now ex-BF, David Adefeso, and the ensuing restraining order are still weighing on the family. Naturally.

Trina says she's got her sister's back -- but when it comes it comes to David, well ... Trina's pleading the Fifth.

Tamar Braxton BF Says She Was Angry at Network Before Apparent Suicide Attempt

911 AUDIO

Tamar Braxton was seething mad with her TV network bosses leading up to her apparent suicide attempt -- that's what her boyfriend claimed during his 911 call.

According to the recorded call Tamar's boyfriend, David Adefeso, explained to the dispatcher ... the singer had been having trouble with WeTV -- and he explained how the issues came to a head before last Thursday before he found her unresponsive in their hotel room.

According to David's 911 call -- made Thursday night from the Ritz Carlton in downtown L.A. -- Tamar also left a note before her apparent attempt to take her own life, and he claims she was mixing alcohol with medication she uses to treat anxiety and depression.

Tamar's reality show, "Braxton Family Values," airs on WeTV and she's reportedly been upset with producers for using her childhood trauma -- alleged assaults and rape -- to boost ratings.

As we reported ... EMTs found Tamar unconscious inside her room when they arrived, and she was rushed to the hospital. She's since improved to stable condition.

The rest of the 911 call was super emotional and scary ... and at one point, Tamar's boyfriend started crying.

Tamar Braxton 911 Calls Claim Suicide Attempt in L.A. Hotel

Tamar Braxton may have attempted to take her own life.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... a 911 call was placed at around 10 PM Thursday. The caller said someone at the Ritz Carlton hotel in downtown L.A. attempted suicide.

When EMTs arrived we're told they found Tamar unconscious inside her room. Her boyfriend, David Adefeso, told cops she may have overdosed on pills and alcohol.

Our sources say the boyfriend also told police Tamar had been upset earlier in the day and had threatened suicide. Our law enforcement sources say Tamar did not leave a note.

Tamar was rushed to the hospital. We do not know her condition.

Tamar and David do a YouTube show called, "Coupled & Quarantined," and the latest episode was supposed to run Thursday night, but earlier in the day they said it was being postponed. They did not say why.

They also have an upcoming show on WE tv called, "Tamar Braxton: Get Ya Life." The first trailer for the show was released Thursday, and in it, Tamar is seen arguing with producers about being portrayed as the "angry black woman."

Tamar, whose latest album was "Bluebird of Happiness" back in 2017, may be even better known for her reality series, "Braxton Family Values."

She also won the U.S. version of "Celebrity Big Brother" last year.

We attempted but were unable to reach Tamar's rep.

Tamar Braxton I'm Officially Single!!!

Tamar Braxton is hitting the open market ... because a judge just ruled she's officially single. 

According to new legal docs obtained by TMZ ... the judge in her divorce with estranged husband Vincent Herbert changed their marital status and deemed them both single, even though they have yet to finalize the split of all their assets.

We broke the story ... the singer filed for divorce from Vincent back in October 2017 following nearly 9 years of marriage. 

Tamar and Vincent started dating way back in 2003 after they were introduced by her sister, Toni Braxton, who was working with the record exec. 

They got married in 2008 and have one child together, 6-year-old Logan Vincent. Tamar is 42 and Vincent is 46.

Tamar asked the judge in April to change her marital status to single ... and now she's finally got her wish.

Toni Braxton Testifies As Victim in Jewelry Theft Case ... He Stole $2.5 Mil in Bling!!!

Toni Braxton took an oath to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth Thursday, and told a jury she's heartbroken that the guy on trial stole her engagement ring and other precious jewelry.

A guy who works for an airplane cleaning service is on trial for allegedly rifling through a piece of carry-on luggage she forgot after landing in L.A. We're told three other employees from the cleaning service say they were on the Delta jet and saw the defendant pilfer Toni's $1 million engagement ring, 4 super expensive watches -- including 2 Rolex's and a Cartier -- and 2 pairs of vintage earrings. The grand total of the theft -- $2.5 MILLION.

I FEEL SO VIOLATED

The bad news -- the jewelry is still missing. Birdman gave Toni the ring when he proposed to her in February 2018. As for why the ring wasn't on her finger during the JFK to LAX flight ... because her fingers tend to swell when she flies as a result of a medical condition -- lupus.

On her way out of court Toni told us she hopes the thief has some remorse and gives her the jewelry back ... especially the engagement ring.

10:45 AM PT -- According to the police report -- obtained by TMZ -- a friend of Lauren's claims she was talking with Lauren in the kitchen and went upstairs for just 10 minutes. The friend told cops when she returned to the kitchen, Lauren was on the floor and unresponsive.

8:22 AM PT -- Trina Braxton just posted about Lauren's death, saying, "God sent me another angel! Rest in Heaven Lauren "LoLo" Braxton."

Toni Braxton's niece has died in Maryland ... TMZ has learned.

Lauren Braxton -- the daughter of Toni's younger brother, Michael Conrad Braxton Jr. -- died Monday ... according to her father, who tells us her death was related to a heart condition.

Law enforcement tells TMZ ... they received a 911 call around noon on Monday, and Lauren -- who went by the nickname LoLo -- was unresponsive when they arrived. She was pronounced dead by paramedics.

Michael -- who is a Maryland native -- is the only son of the Braxton siblings. He and Toni are the elder siblings to Traci, Towanda, Trina and Tamar. Like most of his sisters, Michael is also a singer and songwriter and he's appeared on episodes of his sisters' reality show "Braxton Family Values."

Michael started singing with his sisters in church choirs when they were young.

His daughter Lauren was 24.

RIP

Tamar Braxton Sister Towanda Owes Her $35k ... Bankruptcy Messes with Family

Tamar Braxton's learning the hard way lending money to family is not always wise ... especially when they filed for bankruptcy.

Tamar's older sister, Towanda, hit a rough patch ... filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy -- that's the serious kind. In the docs, you have to list your various debts -- and that includes owing Tamar a cool $35k for a personal loan. And, to add to her problem, Towanda says she's only bringing in an average of $4,692.50 in monthly income but estimates her monthly expenses at just over $6k.

And, it's just the tip of the iceberg. According to docs ... Towanda's on the hook for $547,056.39 but only has $277,650 in assets. Doesn't take a rocket scientist to see the math doesn't add up in her favor.

No word if the bankruptcy will add to more drama in the sisters' reality show "Braxton Family Values." They seem to be at war a lot. Remember when Tamar blew up on Trina for getting engaged on what Tamar felt like was still her birthday celebration? That was a doozy.

Tamar Braxton to Trina My Bad, Sis ... Didn't Mean to Rain On Engagement Parade!!!

Tamar Braxton is falling back into mea culpa mode just days after putting her sister, Trina, on blast for daring to get engaged ... during Tamar's birthday celebration.

ICYMI ... Tamar went off Tuesday on Trina's fiance, Von, after he popped the question to Trina. Tamar's issue is his timing sucked. The proposal went down on what Tamar considered a continuation of her bday bash. Check out the vid, Tamar rants about crappy gifts and Trina stealing her shine.

NOT IMPRESSED

Tamar's now saying, "Oops!" She took to Instagram and said, "Sometimes you get so caught up in 'ME' you f*** up not only your night, but others as well! Looking at the bigger picture, I'm so excited and happy for [Trina] and [Von.]"

She didn't paint such a rosy picture earlier this week. Sources close to the situation tell TMZ ... Tamar's blowup was completely unwarranted because, for starters, the family celebrated Tamar's birthday on Monday.

We're told they had a birthday cake with candles and sang "Happy Birthday" ... the whole 9 yards. The next day -- when Tamar went off -- the family once again had dinner together to discuss their show, "Braxton Family Values."

The family meeting was NOT supposed to be another birthday bash ... especially since Tamar's birthday was March 17. Our sources say because the family got together again, Von felt it was a good time to propose ... especially because it's rare to get everyone together in the same room.

Our sources say Trina and Von do NOT feel like they stole Tamar's thunder -- after all, she'd already had her party.

We're told it's all water under the bridge now. As for Trina and the ring ... it's a beaut -- the center stone's nearly 2 carats.

It's a deep oval cut featuring another carat of smaller diamonds on the band. Congrats!!!

Trina Braxton's Ex-Husband Gabe Solis Dead at 43

12/22 12:50 PM PT -- Trina released a statement on her ex-husband's passing, saying ... "a chapter permanently closed for my sons and I. For over 16 years, Gabe Solis was an essential part of our lives."

She also apologized to friends and family who weren't aware of Gabe's situation and found out through the media ... specifically the Solis Family. Trina added ... "He was a father to my boys, a son, brother, and friend to many and I would appreciate privacy and respect as we grieve his unexpected departure."

Trina Braxton's ex-husband, Gabe Solis, has died after a battle with cancer ... TMZ has learned.

Sources tell us Solis died Thursday in Texas, where he hails from, and we're told he was surrounded by friends and family.

Trina and Gabe wed in 2003 but divorced in 2015, and their on-again, off-again relationship was a frequent topic on the family's reality show -- "Braxton Family Values" -- even after they divorced.

The former couple also appeared on an episode of "Iyanla: Fix My Life" earlier this year -- more than 2 years after their split -- to hash out their issues and work on a plan to finally move on.

In the episode, Gabe confronted Trina about her verbal abuse and bullying and let her know how it affected him during their marriage. Despite their rocky road ... the 2 remained close friends.

We're told Gabe's health issues were kept under wraps and his passing comes as a surprise to many close to the family.

He was 43.

RIP

Tamar Braxton's Mom Devastated My Child Was Molested ... I Feel Her Pain

I STAND WITH MY DAUGHTER
TMZ.com

When Tamar Braxton's mother heard the news her daughter was molested as a child -- she felt disappointed and hurt, but she's also ready to fight for justice.

We got Evelyn Braxton Monday at LAX ... and she told us the most devastating part of the whole tragedy is coping with the fact that her daughter was violated by a family member.

Evelyn doesn't know which family member molested her daughter ... she's going to let Tamar decide the best way to tell her story ... and she will stand by her side.

PAINFUL REVELATION
FOX

We broke the story ... Tamar made the revelation earlier this month during a taping of Wendy Williams ... telling the talk show host she was molested as a child by members of both sides of her fam.

Towanda Braxton tells us her sister showed incredible strength ... adding Tamar has the right to speak her truth.

HEAR HER OUT, TAMAR IS PROOF
TMZ.com

Towanda admits the family was hurt by Tamar's revelations, but says it's more important for victims to share their stories ... no matter who is involved.

'Braxton Family Values' Cast Walks Out Over I$$ue$ ... Show on Hiatus

"Braxton Family Values" is on an indefinite break after the sisters and their mother made a family decision -- no taping until they're paid what they're worth.

Sources connected to the show tell us the entire cast -- Tamar, Toni, Towanda, Traci, Trina and mom Evelyn -- was scheduled to shoot in Atlanta last week, but only Traci showed up ... so WE tv sent the crew home and pulled the plug on taping.

Our sources say the Braxton women are refusing to return to work until the network and Magical Elves production company renegotiate their contracts for the second half of season 6.

The major bones of contention, we're told -- the cast feels their wardrobe and travel stipends are so low it's laughable. They also want their salaries increased to an "appropriate" level.

WE tv declined to comment, but sources close to the situation tell us the Braxtons are under contract through season 9. We also reached out to Magical Elves ... no word back so far.

Toni Braxton My Show Will Go On ... Without Tamar and Her Drama!

And then there was one ...

Toni Braxton is now hitting the road without either of her sisters after 86'ing Tamar from the upcoming family tour.

The tour was supposed to feature three of the Braxtons ... Toni along with Tamar and Traci as her opening acts. That didn't last long. We broke the story, Traci got the axe last month after she sparred with Tamar over her estranged husband, Vince Herbert.

We're now told promoters also don't want to deal with Tamar's divorce drama -- so they dropped her from the tour, too. Important to note, Vince is still Tamar's manager.

As of now, we're told there's no replacement yet to open for Toni. The clock's ticking ... we're told the tour will kick off May 22.

Braxton Sisters Deal with It, Tamar! Your Ex is Fair Game for TV Trash Talk

SHE CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH
TMZ.com

Tamar Braxton getting all butt hurt over her estranged husband's portrayal on "Braxton Family Values" makes zero sense to her sisters, who say they're gonna keep trashing him ... like family should!

Trina, Towanda and Traci Braxton told us Wednesday, Tamar's stance is hypocritical because she's guilty of airing the dirty laundry of other family members in the past.

We broke the story ... Tamar thinks the show's new season has been edited to vilify her soon-to-be-ex, Vincent Herbert. The sisters didn't exactly deny doing it, but said they just keep it real by sharing their true feelings ... whether cameras are rolling or not.

NOVEMBER 2017
SISTER SUPPORT

As for any contact with Vincent, sure sounds like the ladies still have Tamar's back ... as they did in October. Remember, we got them fresh off a plane on the way to comfort her after news of Vincent's alleged infidelity broke.

Toni Braxton Buys $3 Million Mansion 6 Months After Bankruptcy

Reality TV can pull you out of bankruptcy and get you a $3 million house next to Justin Bieber ... all in 6 MONTHS ... and Toni Braxton's living proof.

Real estate sources tell TMZ, Toni -- whose reality show "Braxton Family Values" is already on its third season -- just purchased a mansion for close to $3 million in Calabasas' exclusive gated community The Oaks ... just a few houses down from Justin.

The house is 4 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, and measures 5,323 sq. ft.

Technically, it's the smallest house in the neighborhood ... but still, not too bad for someone who was dead ass broke less than a year ago.

Toni's real estate purchase has to sting for her old creditors -- as we reported, when Braxton filed for bankruptcy in 2010 (for the second time) she claimed debts as high as $50,000,000 ... and only ended up repaying a tiny fraction of that before the debts were cleared entirely.

Only in America ...

Trina Braxton Hubby Challenging Divorce On Grounds of Love

"Braxton Family Values" star Trina Braxton has an unusual problem -- the husband she wants to divorce has filed legal docs challenging her right to a divorce ... on grounds they allegedly still love each other.

We broke the story ... Toni Braxton's sister filed for divorce from Gabriel Adrian-Solis earlier this year, claiming their 10-year marriage was irretrievably broken ... after both of them admitted to cheating.

But Adrian-Solis doesn't believe the marriage is kaput ... he's filed docs in Georgia challenging the divorce petition ... claiming whatever's wrong with their relationship can be fixed.

According to the docs ... he wants a judicial declaration that a reconciliation is possible ... with a little work from both.

So new song -- Don't Unbreak My Divorce.
