The Blast reported that the 43-year-old was at the The Ritz-Carlton Residences at LA Live in downtown Los Angeles with her boyfriend, David Adefeso.
“We’re told David found Tamar ‘unresponsive’ and called 911 to report his girlfriend had been drinking and taken an unknown amount of prescription pills. Sources say he believed it was a possible suicide attempt,” The Blast reported.
Police officials confirmed to the publication that they received a call around 9.45pm (in America) regarding a 43-year-old female who had a medical emergency listed as a “possible overdose”. Further investigation will be done.
