Tamar Braxton shocked fans when she admitted that she was abused multiple times by family members.

Following her appearance on the Wendy Williams Show, Tamar decided that it was time to be open and honest with herself and with her fans.

Taking to Instagram, Tamar said that she felt that it was time to tell the world her “secret”.

“I decided to Tell Wendy and the world MY secret, MYSELF that I have been a victim of abuse not once, twice, ten, but multiple times by multiple “family members”,” she wrote.

The Prettiest Girl singer opened up about being abused and how she has kept quiet for the past few years.

” Two people in my life and they both have held this close to them,” she said. “I felt that because this has happened to me recently, that something HAD to be done about people who DID know and tried to make People embarrassed and ashamed about something that has happened to them!!! I never EVER again want anyone to feel so little and so small or even ashamed about something they had no control over (sic).”

Tamar encouraged women who have been victims of abuse to speak out and to always remember that their scars do not define who they are.

“I wanted you to know that no matter how many scars you have… you are the PRETTIEST.”

Last year, Tamar’s mother, Evelyn Braxton confirmed that her daughter was being abused by her estranged husband, Vincent Herbert.

Evelyn said that the abuse was so bad that she did not know how to help her child.

The mother of the famous Braxton sisters said that she often feared for both Tamar and her son, Logan’s life.

Today Wendy asked me what happened at my sisters meeting and why did I walk out. Since someone there decided that they would ask me about something so private, so embarrassing, so secretive in front of EVERYONE that was there, I felt like my life was flashing before my eyes and IMMEDIATELY started to cry. Not because someone decided to allow someone else to tell MY SECRET, not because I was asked if it were True in front of a hundred strangers, but because once again my right to choose was taken from me all over again. I decided to Tell Wendy and the world MY secret, MYSELF that I have been a victim of abuse not once, twice, ten, but multiple times by multiple “family members” I’ve never told ANYONE other than Two people in my life and they both have held this close to them. One Being the man that I am with now and EVERY, SINGLE DAY he says I’m so beautiful and my scars makes me even more attractive. I felt that because this has happened to me recently, that something HAD to be done about people who DID know and tried to make People embarrassed and ashamed about something that has happened to them!!! I never EVER again want anyone to feel so little and so small or even ashamed about something they had no control over. I wanted to create a space where you can tell your OWN story with out anyone commenting or making you feel ashamed EVER again!! Go to and tell your story and empower yourself starting today! I wanted you to know that no matter how many scars you have… you are the PRETTIEST 💕 I love you all so much noneedTBshame.com
