*Nene Leakes took to Instagram Thursday to show support for Tamar Braxton after the singer’s alleged suicide attempt on July 16.

Spoke to her and David today!”

Leakes also urged her followers to check in on their seemingly “strong” friends. 

“I say that to say this…check on your strong friends! Try not to judge so much! know that there are people being treated wrong for real and It’s really painful. I know Tamar is gonna get thru this but please pray for her strength.”
