David Adefeso Threatened To Cut Family Off Over Tamar Braxton


Tamar Braxton's romance with David Adefeso turns serious as David admits he threatened to cut off his family if they interfered...

In a Thanksgiving post on Instagram David explains how his family readily accepted Tamar, but cautioned if they had not he would have cut ties with them, citing the cultural differences between African parents and families involvement with their children's relationships verses the culture of Black families in America.

Yesterday my @tamarbraxton , Beans and I hosted our first thanksgiving dinner as a family. My dynamic 80 year old mom, sister, brother-in-law and niece as well as more than 30 close friends of ours attended. We had a blast!!! It always amazes me to see how Tamar and my family took to each other from the moment they met back in Nigeria; they love her and she loves them right back. During dessert my mom stood up to speak and she called Tamar her daughter. I wasn’t surprised: my family took to Tamar’s gorgeous simile, deep kindness and infectious sense of humor almost as strongly as she took to my family’s deeply Christian, conservative, African roots. But what if my family hadn’t accepted her? As with a lot of African American families, many African parents and families tend to get too overly involved in their children’s relationships and married lives, often to the detriment of the young couple’s relationship (heck, I’ve seen some of my friends’ moms move into the couple’s home right after they got married, which so often makes life miserable for the daughter-in-law). I vowed that I would never put Tamar through the misery I’ve seen other couples go through with the man’s family. So I informed my family early on that they didn’t have a choice! They either love Tamar the way they love me and accept her the way I accept her....or they risk losing me completely. Needless to say, I needn’t have worried!! My mom treats Tamar like her 4th daughter (I have 3 sisters) and Beans like her 13th grandchild, my sisters cherish her the way they do each other, and my brothers adore my @tamarbraxton almost as much as I do. Welcome to the Adefeso family, Tamar!! I am so grateful and give thanks that God brought you and Beans into my life. A word to all the young, strong brothas out there who are in relationships with our beautiful black sistas: please stand up for your girl! Once you pick her she becomes your #1 in life; and she comes before the rest of your family: before your mom, sisters, and before even you!! And that’s how to keep a happy home! #happythanksgiving #godblessournewfamily ❤️❤️❤️❤️

It feels like they are always trying to "sell" this relationship to us. "Thanksgiving with the family" would have been sufficient.

It's refreshing to see him say this because once a man becomes married, his wife should be the 1st person in his life. The only difference is, he's not married to Tamar and I would tread lightly and take it slow. However, I had no idea that traditional African families were so intrusive in a married couple's life. For a mother-n-law to move into the home where a husband & wife live is insane. I wonder how David's conservative mother feels about all of Tamar's gay male friends? On another note, I see Mr. Patti's Pies was in attendance and Imma need him to create a cookbook or get him on a cable cooking show like The Kitchen. Get that man on tv.

Why did he have to Threaten them to accept her? Hell I guess they did if he threatened to cut them off. No one has to put up with Tamar's nasty @$$ ways and attitude. You see how she treats her own family, how spoiled and selfish she is. And that is not all editing from the network. We've all heard about her for years. Way before the Reality Shows and marriages.
