As the situation unfolds, it becomes clear that Tamar Braxton, too, is entangled in the aftermath of the assault, having invited Chrisean to the show and suggested her performance.

She took to Twitter writing:

I’m tired y’all. I don’t know about this pt2 tour. We are all hurting and if I didn’t say anything I’m wrong. I said something & I’m lying. I’m tired. Meanwhile James is at the dentist getting new teeth. Y’all leave me alone. I was only trying to show CR love. I still think she needs hugs and real people.💔

A commenter responded:

So you waited until Chrisean deleted her social media to speak out? Seems like it’s a lot of b/s why was she there? Answer the question we all want to know, was she there to perform or not? Cause why would she be there y’all don’t vibe y’all don’t hang out it’s just weird😏
