David Adefeso’s restraining order against his ex Tamar Braxton is dissolved after they failed to appear in court
A restraining order against Tamar Braxton which was filed by her ex-Nigerian boyfriend, David Adefeso, in a Los Angeles court, has been dismissed.
According to TMZ, the 43-year-old reality star and her ex failed to attend the Tuesday hearing, leading the court to dissolve the legal arrangement.
In September 2020, Adefeso filed for a restraining order against Tamar, who is the younger sister of R&B staple Toni Braxton amid claims that she had made death threats against him, and had assaulted him while he was driving.
Appearing on The Tamron Hall Show last October,Tamrar denied her ex’s claims.
‘I am a survivor a domestic violence relationship,’ she told Hall. ‘And not at any point [were] David and I in an abusive relationship.’
She also claimed that they had audio recordings which proved her innocent of any physical abuse in the exchange.
She told Hall: ‘He has the videotape. He has it. It was in his car. Release it.’
Adefeso told People in September in a statement that he wished Braxton the best in terms of her ‘mental and emotional stability,’ enunciating that he was ‘the victim in this situation.’
‘As I document in the filing, I am actually the victim of domestic abuse,’ he said. ‘One in seven men experience severe physical violence, yet it remains a silent epidemic. As humiliating as this is, I must speak out for my own truth and others who do not have a platform.’
He continued: ‘And although not part of the filing, I must affirm here and now that I have never physically abused Tamar before, during or after our relationship. Period. I want to resolve our legal issues and move on with my life to focus on my business, my family and the future.’
Tamar Braxton and David Adefeso started dating in 2018 before their split in 2020.
