Tamar Braxton and David Adefeso Clash Over Her ‘Sex Abstinence’ Experiment on Docuseries Premiere

Tamar Braxton and fiancé, David Adefeso

*Tamar Braxton’s new WE tv docuseries “Get Ya Life!” premiered on Thursday, and viewers got a glimpse of her clashing with ex-boyfriend David Adefeso over sex. 

The six-episode series promises to take fans on her journey with motherhood, love and her career as she records a new album. 

At the time the show was filmed, Braxton was still dating Adefeso. Earlier this week, however, The Blast reported that he had filed for a restraining order against her, and it comes less than two months after he allegedly found the singer unresponsive in their Los Angeles hotel room following a suicide attempt. 

David claims a physical altercation between the two prompted him to contact police. 

On Thursday’s premiere of “Get Ya Life!,” Braxton opened up about embarking on a new path following her divorce from music producer Vince Herbert, the father of her 7-year-old son Logan.

“I lost everything. I lost my identity, I lost my home, my career. I lost everything that was positive in my life,” she admitted, PEOPLE reports. “A lot of people don’t understand losing everything means you lose everything, including yourself.”

She continued, “I lost my mind, I didn’t want to leave my house. I was paranoid. I didn’t know who to trust. The only thing I had was my health and my strength and my kid. It’s very hard to juggle being a mom, being a businesswoman and dating when you’re fighting your way back from a disastrous moment that you had in your life,” she continued. “So you can either give up and wallow in it, or you can get up and dust yourself off and understand that there are going to be days where you feel like you can’t make it, some days you shouldn’t have made it and you don’t know how.”

Later in the episode, Braxton met with a creative coach named Goli to help her manifest her “dreams,” but for the exercise to work she would have to abstain from sex, alcohol and drugs for 45 days. When she informed Adefeso of her plan, he didn’t take it too well. 

“How important is it for you, [on a] scale of one to 10?” he asked.

“One hundred,” Braxton replied.

“Okay. For me, sex, on a scale of one to 10 [is] 102,” he said. “How about that?”

Adefeso said during confessional that her “dream” exercise doesn’t align with his religious beliefs.  

“Tamar is interested in doing the dream work, but I’m a hardcore, born-again, Jesus-believing Christian,” he said. “I really don’t know about who Goli is or how she does what she does. I’m not so sure that her methods are something that fit my own beliefs.”

He also questions if the coach is a “witch.”

“I’m not sure what dream work is,” he said. “If it doesn’t come from God and the bible, then I can’t subscribe to it.”

“Tamar Braxton: Get Ya Life!” airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET on WE tv.
