“According to sources close to Braxton, the ex-couple got into a heated altercation while driving to check the reality star into a mental health facility for treatment. We’re told on the way, Tamar questioned Adefesco about a recent about an Instagram he shared featuring her 7-year-old son, Logan Herbert. At that point, the couple apparently began arguing and Tamar told David he was ‘around for the wrong reasons and could not be trusted,’” the outlet reported.

Tamar says that David became “irate, threatening not only her life but his own,” adding that they’d end up in a “murder-suicide.” Sources close to Tamar said the argument turned violent at that point and he “grabbed her hard” on the arms and caused bruising. There are allegedly photos showing injuries during the incident.

David filed a domestic violence restraining order in Los Angeles County Court asking a judge to order Tamar to stay away from him, although his allegations have not been revealed.

“Any claims that Ms. Braxton was the aggressor and/or abusive are completely false and have no merit. David Adefeso has been upset and abusive since seeing his own true colors on Tamar’s upcoming television show and has been taking it out on Tamar ever since,” sources told The Blast.

David Adefeso‘s lawyer has not yet responded to the outlet’s request for comment.

Last month, Tamar credited her boyfriend with saving her life after discovering her in their home “lifeless.”

Tamar Braxton is sending her love to boyfriend David Adefeso.

The 43-year-old reality star took to her Instagram to share a message in honor of her boyfriend for “saving her life” after her suicide attempt last month.

“I came here just to say this and then I’m logging off,” Tamar wrote. “If you have ever been in recovery or treatment you know that you reflect on a lot of things…so 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 😔💔 & I’m sure finding me the way that you did couldn’t have been easy.”

David found Tamar unresponsive in her Los Angeles hotel room following her suicide attempt. He then called the police and she was rushed to the hospital. Tamar went on to defend David, after fans had negative things to say about him.

“But know that people coming at you saying all this crazy stuff, isn’t easy for me,” Tamar wrote. “People have called you every name in the book, to deflect from what’s really been going on.” 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 ‘that’s that African man’ 😒🤦🏽‍♀️👀 like I don’t have a mind of my own 🙄 cause without THIS African man, I simply would not be here.”

Tamar then said that David and her son Logan are her “priority.” Tamar shares her seven-year-old son with ex-husband Vincent Herbert.

“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,” Tamar concluded. “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 ❤️‼️💍”
