Cape Town - Tamar Braxton recently made a shocking revelation about her childhood during a taping of the Wendy Williams Show.

According to TMZ, the 41-year-old reality star revealed to the talk show host that she was molested when she was younger.

She was allegedly molested by family members from both her mother and father’s sides.

Tamar didn’t name her abusers and Wendy chose not to press her for details, according to the website.

Tamar sat down with Wendy on Wednesday to talk about her divorce, her new beau and the Braxtons recent visit with Iyanla Vanzant, reports Us Weekly.


According to Ebony, the sisters' appearance on Iyanla: Fix My Life was nothing short of a disaster.

The Braxton sisters had decided to stage a protest and not participate in their show Braxton Family Values, but one of the sisters went ahead with filming.

They’ve been at odds ever since. They went on Iyanla to resolve their issues, but sources claim that appearing on the popular OWN series has made the situation between the family members “worse than before.”

Tamar even stormed out of the meeting with Iyanla, but her reason for leaving was unknown.

When Wendy pressed her about the appearance, Tamar revealed she'd been molested by members on both sides of her family.

Both Wendy and her audience were stunned, reports Us Weekly. No further details were shared about the alleged attacks.

The full interview with Wendy will air on Thursday.

Tamar also chatted about her prior relationship with Vincent Herbert and revealed she's been dating a new man for several months now.
