TAMAR Braxton has issued a touching tribute to her "rock and angel on earth" boyfriend David Adefeso for "saving" her life during her recent suicide attempt – as he teased their "engagement".
The little sister of singer Toni Braxton, 43, took to her Instagram page to post a cute video showing them toasting to "the best times" with two orange-coloured drinks.
David told the camera they were having "the best time in the world" while the The Braxtons vocalist's caption reflected her upbeat mood.
After introducing David as "my love" he continued and said: "We are in Santa Barbara and we are celebrating the most amazing engagement," to which she giggled but did not confirm whether he had popped the question, or it was mere banter. Yet she did an an Emoji ring to her message, sparking further speculation.
It is a positive turn for the star who was found unresponsive by David at the Ritz Carlton Residences in downtown Los Angeles, on July 17 after reports she had suffered a “possible overdose."
Tamar's family, including Toni, rallied around her and in today's emotional message she specifically credited David – who made an emotional call to the emergency services when finding her body – for "saving my life."
In the lengthy message, Tamar wrote: "I came here just to say this and then I’m logging off… if you have ever been in recovery or treatment you know that you reflect on a lot of things…
"I couldn’t let another day, another second go by without PUBLICLY Thanking my Love @david.adefeso for saving my life… I’m so grateful.
"I was in our home lifeless?? and I’m sure finding me the way that you did couldn’t have been easy.
"But know that people coming at you saying all crazy stuff, isn’t easy for me. people have called you every name in the book, to deflect from what’s really been going on.
"And you know that through this entire time, you have held my hand, heard my cries, held me when I have been weak. You have had my ENTIRE back‼️
"I will not allow anyone to call you controlling or “thats that African man???♀️? like I don’t have a mind of my own?cause without THIS African man, I simply would not be here.
"Everything isn’t political and your love for me is not that. You were here for me when NOBODY was and still is. YOU and Logan are priority."
She rounded off with the sweet words: "Thank you for being my Rock and now, my Angel on earth.
"I love you.. and although I been said yes in this old video… now and then, I couldn’t imagine what life would be like if you weren’t by my side. thank God I’m here and thank God for you ❤️‼️?."
The Emoji ring at the end of the post sparked more ongoing speculation the pair are engaged.
Recently, Tamar's family are said to have blamed David for her "mood swings" prior to her suicide attempt.
He broke his silence to tell of the "very difficult time" for Tamar and the couple together.
