Tamar Braxton‘s boyfriend David Adefeso says she is receiving treatment to address her ”struggles and strengthen her mental health” following a suspected overdose last week.

The 43-year-old singer was rushed to hospital on Thursday (16.07.20) night after she was found unresponsive by David at the Ritz-Carlton Residences at LA Live in Los Angeles and he says she is getting ”the best available medical attention” at this ”difficult time”.

He told The Blast: ”On behalf of Tamar Braxton, I want to thank her fans and the public for the ongoing thoughts and prayers.

”Tamar is a beautifully talented woman, a devoted mother, a loving girlfriend, a dear sister and a special friend to countless people. This is an extremely difficult time for Tamar and her family as she navigates professional and personal struggles including her battle with depression.’

”She is currently receiving the best available medical attention to address those struggles and strengthen her mental health, and her family and I will remain by her side throughout her treatment.

”Mental health is a common issue, affecting one in five Americans. Please continue to send prayers and hope as Tamar continues the path to recovery and ultimate happiness. We ask to please respect Tamar’s privacy, and her family’s privacy, during this important time of healing.”

Tamar was originally rushed to the closest hospital to her location, but after she was stabilised, she was moved over the weekend to another hospital with specialists in the field of mental health.

A spokesperson said: ”Tamar has been transferred to another facility for further evaluation and treatment. Out of respect for Tamar’s privacy and that of her family, no additional information is available at this time.

”The outpouring of support that Tamar has received is a testament to the light that she brings to people.”

Tamar will stay in hospital until doctors can evaluate what type of further treatment she needs, or decide to release her to undergo more outpatient type treatment.

The ‘Braxton Family Values’ star was admitted to hospital last week after her boyfriend David called 911 and said he believed Tamar had been drinking and taking prescription pills.

A representative for Tamar said at the time: ”Tamar has had a very tough and emotional day. More information will be coming in the next few days. Please pray for her.”

Whilst a spokesperson for the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed: ”There was a medical emergency call generated related to a possible overdose at 9:45 pm. The person was then transported to a nearby hospital.”

Tiffany Haddish has had “She Ready” carved into her shaved head.

The 41-year-old actress debuted her shaven head in July and is now sporting a buzzcut with her famous catchphrase on the back of her head.

During an Instagram Live, in which she thanked her hairstylist LaMarr Randle for her new look, she said: “I’ve always wanted something cool on my head. When people see me coming they’ll be like, ‘I think that’s Tiffany.’ Then I’m gonna walk past them and they gonna see “She Ready” and they gonna know what it is!”

The ‘Girls Trip’ star said last summer that the best part of having short locks is that when water hits her head “it feels like kisses from God”.

She wrote at the time: “Just Loving my new look thought I’d share it with y’all. The best part is when water hits my head it feels like kisses from God. #sheready for more of Gods Love! (sic)”

The fresh hairdo went down a treat with Tiffany’s famous friends.

Her pal Kelly Rowland commented alongside a red heart emoji: “She don’t need no hair, she is gorgeously gorgeous! (sic)”

Whilst actor Bill Dawes added in the comments section of her post: “You can pull it off beautifully with those eyes and that smile, Tiff. Plus, now you can have any hair in the world you want at any time without needing a wig cap. It’s the best! (sic)”

Tina Lawson – Beyonce’s mother – also wrote alongside the photograph: “You look absolutely gorgeous !! I love it (sic)”

And Kate Hudson – who famously shaved her hair – branded it “freedom”, writing: Best feeling ever … #Freedom (sic)”

The ‘Like A Boss’ star previously revealed her boyfriend, Common, helped her to cut her hair during the coronavirus lockdown.

She said: “My man cut it for me last week.”

Paul Smith | Sir Paul Smith calls for fashion seasons to go back to just two per year

sir paul smith 2222780

Sir Paul Smith wants to see less fashion seasons going forward.

The 74-year-old fashion designer has admitted he hopes the industry goes back to having just two seasons per year.

He told the Indian edition of Elle magazine: “I hope the fashion industry slows down. We don’t need as many seasons as there were. I would like it to go back to a couple of years ago when there were two seasons, and in between those, you would have a one-week sale period.”

Since the COVID-19 pandemic, the fashion muse has worked alone in his studio and designed his eponymous fashion house’s Spring/Summer 2021 collection over video call, which subsequently inspired his team to make pieces that are “loose and comfortable”.

Asked how the global health crisis will impact the fashion business going forward, he added: “Clothing wise, I think silhouettes will change to softer and more relaxed fits. During the lockdown period, I was in my London studio for 16 weeks all by myself, where there are usually around 150 members of staff. The whole SS21 collection was designed over the phone and video calls, this really inspired us to make garments loose and comfortable but still presentable and of course, well made.”

Elsewhere, Paul shared his goal to “expand” his Paul Smith Foundation, which he launched in 2021 to give back to the “younger generation”, after five decades in fashion.

He said: “I have launched the Paul Smith Foundation to mark our 50th anniversary this year. The foundation is created with an endeavour to give something back to a younger generation. At the moment, it is an online platform where people from all different professional fields can come to find inspiration. I hope to expand this over the years to come.”

The homepage for the foundation’s website reads: “This is the best advice gathered and given by Sir Paul Smith over the past 50 years. It won’t teach you how to cut a suit, but it will help you figure out how to take your ambition to the next level.

“Please explore our regularly updated archive of advice, or keep scrolling for more insights and inspiration…”
