Tamar Braxton is being accused of “staging” the emotional Braxton Family Values scene in which she found out that she had been let go from The Real.
According to a new report by Daily Mail Online, The Real‘s distribution company Warner Bros. are allegedly accusing Braxton and WE tv of staging the scene from the June 2 episode of the reality show, titled “S*** Gets Real,” in which Tamar breaks down in tears after hearing the news that her contract was not being renewed for a third season.
The site is claiming that Warner Bros. have sent legal letters to WE tv over the reality show scene, claiming that the network “called for an emergency episode of Braxton Family Values” in which Tamar and her family supposedly “re-enacted the day” Braxton found out that she would not be returning to the series.
“They re-enacted the day that Tamar found out she was fired and staged an entire scene where Tamar is laying in bed crying and declaring that she doesn’t know why she was fired, while her sisters attempt to console her,” an inside source told Daily Mail Online of the episode.
According to the insider, Warner Bros are allegedly furious about the emotional scene, where Tamar tells sister Toni that she “doesn’t know” why she was let go from the show, despite Braxton claiming during a June 1 appearance on The Steve Harvey Morning Show that the moment was filmed “about two hours” after she found out the news.
Tamar claimed that “the cameras just so happened to be there,” during an appearance on the radio show, telling Steve Harvey that viewers “get a really clear, candid picture of my sisters being there for me and having to be open and honest about my feelings.”
The source alleged that if Tamar continues to discuss leaving the show, particularly in a negative light, those behind the scenes of the talk show may release some not so flattering footage of Braxton’s supposed frequent on-set outbursts during her two seasons on The Real.
“Everyone on set will tell you that her actions that day were reprehensible and the epitome of insubordination,” an insider told Daily Mail Online of Tamar Braxton’s behavior in the alleged videos, including one that supposedly shows Braxton “cursing out” The Real‘s executive producer.
Page Six previously reported last month that The Real‘s producers were contemplating leaking footage of Braxton’s alleged bad behavior to the world, revealing that Telepictures, the company that produces the series, “is really frustrated with how she’s handling things.”
“If she continues to smear her co-hosts and the show, they’re going to release the video and audio of her blowing up on set,” a source alleged to the site in May, long before Braxton was accused of staging her emotional break down on Braxton Family Values.
The initial alleged threat of leaked footage came after Tamar broke her silence about her The Real firing on Instagram, where Braxton claimed that she had been “stabbed in the back” by someone assumed to be associated with the daytime series.
“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,” Tamar wrote on Instagram, “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.”
Tamar then told fans in the photo’s caption 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,” before Tamar appeared to call out the person who she insinuated got her fired from The Real.
“And if you thought for 1 sec u played me… In the late great prince and the amazing Beyoncé voice you PLAYED yourself,” Tamar wrote.
