The Korea Times - - PEOPLE -

LOS AN­GE­LES (AP) — WEtv will honor Ta­mar Brax­ton’s re­quest to end fu­ture work to­gether, but the net­work ex­pects to pre­miere the singer’s re­al­ity show next month.

The net­work wished Brax­ton “noth­ing but the best” in a state­ment Mon­day. Her re­al­ity se­ries called “Ta­mar Brax­ton: Get Ya Life!” was ex­pected to pre­miere last week, but the show has been post­poned to Sept. 10.

“Ta­mar Brax­ton has been an im­por­tant part of our net­work fam­ily for more than a decade,” the state­ment said. “As she fo­cuses on her health and re­cov­ery at what is clearly a dif­fi­cult and per­sonal time, we will work with her rep­re­sen­ta­tives to honor her re­quest to end all fu­ture work for the net­work.”

Brax­ton’s re­quest to end her fu­ture work­ing re­la­tion­ship with WEtv comes af­ter po­lice con­firmed they re­sponded to a med­i­cal emer­gency July 16 at the down­town Los An­ge­les high rise that she calls home. She wrote about her ca­reer de­mands on the re­al­ity se­ries be­ing “ex­ces­sive and un­fair” in a re­cent so­cial me­dia post.

The RB singer posted a lengthy mes­sage that she was grate­ful for her boyfriend David Ade­feso who found her “life­less” in her home.

Brax­ton made a splash in pop cul­ture when she and her sis­ters, in­clud­ing Grammy-win­ning singer Toni Brax­ton, launched their re­al­ity se­ries “Brax­ton Fam­ily Val­ues” on Wetv in 2011.
