It’s been several weeks since Tamar Braxton was let go from The Real, but it appears that her alleged drama with her fellow co-stars doesn’t seem to by dying down.
After months of reports claiming that Tamar was locked in a pretty nasty feud with former co-star Loni Love following her firing, it now appears that things aren’t about to get better between the twosome anytime soon.
Tamar fan @soforreal29 took to social media on July 16 to reveal that Love had now unfollowed Braxton on Instagram, weeks after Braxton initially clicked the unfollow button almost immediately after it was revealed that she would not be returning for Season 3 of the daytime talk show back in May.
“Loni finally unfollowed Tamar on [Instagram],” the Twitter user wrote, while a Twitter search also reveals that the former co-stars also no longer follow each other on Twitter.
Both The Real and Braxton’s former co-hosts have denied that there’s any bad blood, though the latest round of unfollowings comes just weeks after Love confirmed during an interview on The Tom Joyner Morning Show that she actually hasn’t spoken to Braxton since it was revealed that she would not be returning.
“I haven’t heard from Tamar,” Loni, who has sat alongside Tamar with fellow co-hosts Tamera Mowry-Housley, Jeannie Mai, and Adrienne Bailon since the show first began in 2013, recently admitted, before confessing that she has “seen her messages.”
Although the group has always denied reports of drama, TheyBF previously posted a number damning messages about Loni and Tamar’s alleged feud that had been posted to social media in the wake of Braxton’s firing by a Twitter user named Him Kardashian-West, who the site claimed is a friend of Tamar’s.
You shine bright.. Keep shining.. You have been my twinkle toes, my head chef, crazy friend that makes me smile. You know I love you and your family. Your faith has made me strong, your jokes make me laugh and I know that you will continue to soar as you always do. Know that no matter what I only want and wish you the best. I am here, nothing has changed. Take the time you need but know as I have always been, I am here.
In the slew of scathing tweets, the Twitter user alleged that Loni did not call Braxton after learning that she had been let go from The Real, before slamming Loni for taking to Instagram to post a shot of herself and Tamar that she caption by encouraging Braxton to “take the time [she] needs.”
“How you post pictures on Instagram but not even called? Oh. I forgot. That’s right. You did call, the network. Don’t front for the ‘gram, babe,” the Twitter user wrote, directing his message at Love and alleging that Loni called the network and not Tamar after hearing the news.
Tamar Braxton’s alleged friend didn’t explicitly mention Loni Love, though they strongly hinted that they were referencing the comedian by tweeting, “Ain’t no LOVE over here.”
Shortly after the drama, Tamar once again appeared to hint that things weren’t exactly cordial between herself and at least some of her former co-stars after posting a seriously shady message on Instagram.
Braxton hinted at a feud after she both liked and commented on a fan’s Instagram post that showed her leaning away from her former Real co-stars while taking a selfie alongside the caption, “when you in a room full of phony b*****s, it’s best to distance yourself.”
Tamar then commented on the snap, “Pretty much.”
But despite the social media drama that followed Tamar’s departure from The Real, producers quashed reports suggesting that Loni, Adrienne, Tamera, and Jeannie were the reason Braxton was let go from the series.
According to a statement issued to E! News, the Real producers did not offer an official reason for her departure but noted that Tamar leaving the daytime talk show had nothing to do with her now former co-stars.
“Tamar Braxton’s contract was not renewed for reasons that will remain privileged and private, and that are between her and the Studio,” a statement from the show rep to E! News said. “We would like to make it crystal clear that Ms. Braxton’s departure from the show had nothing to do with her former co-hosts; any suggestion to the contrary unfairly tarnishes them.”
