Tamar recently accused her sisters and WE TV of capitalizing off of her mental health issues. When asked if they have come to a resolution, Trina said, “Tamar has decided that she wants to keep her life private. And I—we all absolutely respect that. Tamar has a story to tell and hopefully it will help somebody. But Tamar is the only person who can tell Tamar’s story the way she needs it to be told. And we are being respectful of the fact that she wants to tell her story, the way she wants to tell it.” When asked how they felt when Tamar revealed on Tamron Hall that someone in the family exposed that she was sexually abused as a child, she said, Towanda said, “Well, we just have to respect her truth. Everybody has their own truth and again, we are very sensitive where she is emotionally and mentally and we’re just allowing her to just speak her own truth.” Trina added, “And with that Towanda, I’m going to have to say this. I don’t care who likes it and who doesn’t. Sometimes a person’s truth is not always thee truth. But they have to be able to deal with their truth in their own way.”
