More details are being released about Tamar Braxton amid her hospitalization for an alleged suicide attempt.

As previously reported, a leaked letter to Tamar's family was exposed where she likened herself to a "slave" and allegedly said; "the only way she sees out is death." She also changed her name on social media to Tamar "SLAVE" Braxton.

"I am a slave. I do not own my life. My stories. My pictures. My thoughts or beliefs. I've asked my massa to free me. I'm threatened and punished for it," the message begins.

"She continued, "The only way I see out is death. I will choose that before I continue to love (sic) like this. Please help me (praying hands emoji)."

Now there's another leak afoot, this time in the form of an email sent to WE tv executives. In it, the reality star called them "cruel white slave masters" and accused them of "destroying a Black family" with the series "Braxton Family Values."

Tamar's email was in direct response to WeTV execs sending an email outlining the company's efforts to support the Black community amid unrest over the police killing of George Floyd, reports Page Six.

"We fight with each other, we betray each other, and now we're physically assaulting each other - all happening because your show ["Braxton Family Values"] has chosen to show the absolute worst side of a strong, independent and successful African American family; a show that I created to showcase a strong Black Family as a beacon of hope for all the young black girls and boys out there; instead you coached and cajoled us into finding the worst in each other," Tamar's email allegedly read.

"I hope those ratings were worth it because you succeeded in destroying a great black family."

Most shockingly however Tamar said the execs made her suicidal by exposing that she was molested from age 6 to 16. She dubbed it; "the final stake into the heart of my family."

"The day you dug up a secret I'd never shared with anyone, a secret I was so ashamed to talk about that I hid it even from my own mom: the fact that I had been assaulted and raped repeatedly from age 6 to age 16, sometimes multiple times a day," PageSix reports Tamar wrote.

She added, "You broke me that day and I considered ending my own life then for the shame I felt!"

She ended the email, "I have news for you! Today, I take my power back. I will no longer tolerate being oppressed. I am asking you to break the chains NOW and LET ME GO I am suffocating! I CAN'T BREATHE!!"

The Blast has also confirmed the validity of the email and WE has released a statement sending the star well wishes.

In addition to being devastated by WE tv's alleged actions, Tamar was said to be BIG mad that on her new show "Tamar Braxton: Get Ya Life", she'd be working with producer Mona Scott Young. A family source told Page Six that Mona was the "one person" Tamar DID NOT want around.

"Braxton was unhappy that the network had selected "Love and Hip Hop" producer Mona Scott Young to produce Braxton's new show, "Tamar Braxton: Get Ya Life." "Tamar felt ambushed," said an insider, "She was invited to the network to have a meeting to talk about the show and the premise of the show... and right there sitting down is Mona. The person she said she did not want to work with."

Mona told PageSix that she sends "thoughts and prayers" to Tamar and her family amid the report.

This is all so bad and at the center of it is a woman clearly in pain. We wish Tamar Braxton a speedy recovery!

It's a position Georgia Democrats do not want to be in.

The death of US Rep. John Lewis on Friday has left Georgia's Democratic Party without a candidate in the 5th Congressional District - and with a fast-approaching deadline to select his replacement on the ballot for the November general election.

"We're still grieving," Fulton County Democratic Committee Chair LeWanna Heard-Tucker told CNN Sunday. "This is the process unfortunately." Heard-Tucker is one of seven local Democratic leaders on a committee tasked with reviewing the applications of Georgians interested in being the party's nominee. Those interested in being the Democratic nominee had until 6:30 p.m. ET Sunday to apply.

The Georgia Democratic Party announced late Sunday that 131 candidates had applied. The committee will narrow down the applicants to between three to five prospects to recommend to the state executive committee, who will meet virtually Monday at noon to consider the recommendations.

The party said it would make public the three to five recommended individuals as well as the full list of applicants before noon today. Under Georgia law, the party will have to inform the Georgia secretary of state's office whether they intend to appoint a replacement by Monday, and then inform the office who their replacement nominee is shortly thereafter, Georgia Deputy Secretary of State Jordan Fuchs told CNN.

The Georgia Democratic Party said it would publicly announce the name of the nominee. A local Democratic strategist with knowledge of the process told CNN that some possible contenders could be state Democratic chairwoman and state Sen. Nikema Williams, Atlanta City Councilman Andre Dickens, and former Atlanta City Council President Ceasar Mitchell. The source described Williams as having close ties to Lewis. Her state senate district sits within the 5th Congressional District and many people "in her world are connected to his," the source said.

CNN has reached out to the Georgia Democratic Party for comment about the process. CNN has reached out to Williams, Dickens and Mitchell for comment on whether they applied. Asked what kind of candidate the committee is looking for, Heard-Tucker told CNN on Sunday, "I don't think we've gotten to that point yet." "We're not there yet for a committee to say what we're looking for. It's going to be hard to fill his seat," Heard-Tucker said, adding, "John has such huge shoes to fill."

Former state House Minority Leader Stacey Abrams, another member of the nominating committee, declined to comment. Spokespeople for Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, also on the committee, did not return CNN's request for comment. The application asks six questions including, "why are you the best person to represent" the 5th District and "what ties" the individual has to the district.

Vincent Fort, who served in the state Senate for more than two decades and ran for Atlanta mayor in 2017, told CNN that he submitted his application and hopes to be considered, but has concerns about an "opaque" process. "I think that the process ought to be open and transparent," Fort told CNN on Sunday. "We cannot be in a situation where there's a small group of people in a smoke-filled room."

Fort said that while "there will never be another John Lewis," the nominee should be a person with a background in activism, but also policy, and whomever "follows him ought to follow his general commitment for voting rights and for better health care." But he said Lewis' successor should not be expected to be in lock-step with Lewis' policy positions. "It's unfair to say you have to be another John Lewis," Fort said. Lewis easily won the June Democratic primary with 87% of the vote.

Barrington Martin II, a progressive who was the sole challenger to Lewis in the Democratic primary, also applied for the nomination and voiced concern about the process. "For a long time now, the Democratic party has been riddled with archaic, outdated, and mundane ideologies and it has not served the greater good of the people it seeks to represent. Evidence of this can be seen within this entire process in which the power of choice and choosing one's own fate has been removed from the people and replaced with bureaucratic technicalities that serve only the few and not the many. I understand that these are simply the rules; however, the people who review all of these applications have the power to suggest the necessary changes that should be made that would better serve the people," Martin said in a statement provided to CNN Sunday.

Lewis died Friday at the age of 80. In December, he was diagnosed with Stage 4 pancreatic cancer. Martin in his statement defended his decision to run against Lewis, saying he values the district's constituents over politics. "I was proactive in ensuring the people of this district would be looked after in the result of Congressman Lewis' untimely death; and now we are here," Martin said. Whomever the Democrats pick will face Republican Angela Stanton-King, a criminal justice reform advocate and former reality star, in the November general election.

Stanton-King was uncontested in the Republican primary for the district. In February, she received a pardon from President Donald Trump for her involvement in a stolen vehicle ring in 2007, for which she served six months of home confinement. Democrats are confident the seat will remain in their hands.

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton carried the district by more than 70 points in 2016. The district is rated as Solid Democratic by Inside Elections with Nathan L. Gonzales, who is also a CNN contributor.

Nick Cannon's long partnership with ViacomCBS is over.

The 39-year-old Cannon was axed by the TV giant on Tuesday (July 14) after he refused to apologize for anti-Semitic comments he made on his Cannon's Class podcast.

Cannon was interviewing former Public Enemy member Professor Griff on the June 23 episode of the podcast. Griff's own history with anti-Semitic comments are notable as he was booted from Public Enemy by Chuck D after a 1989 interview where he blamed Jewish people for "the majority of wickedness that goes on across the globe."

Cannon said that "the Semitic people are Black people" and that Black people were "the true Hebrews."

He added, "You can't be anti-Semitic when we are the Semitic people. When we are the same people they want to be. That's our birthright."

On Monday (July 13), Cannon addressed the controversial comments while refusing to apologize.

"Anyone who knows me knows that I have no hate in my heart nor malice intentions," Cannon wrote. "I do not condone hate speech nor the spread of hateful rhetoric. We are living in a time when it is more important than ever to promote unity and understanding."

He added, "The Black and Jewish communities have both faced enormous hatred, oppression persecution and prejudice for thousands of years and in many ways have and will continue to work together to overcome these obstacles."

Cannon's partnership with Viacom dates back to when he starred on All That in the late '90s and early 2000s. He went on to host a number of shows on Nick and MTV, including the highly popular Wild N' Out. In 2007 he was named the chairman of Nickelodeon's young adult programming platform, TeenNick.

"While we support ongoing education and dialogue in the fight against bigotry, we are deeply troubled that Nick has failed to acknowledge or apologize for perpetuating anti-Semitism, and we are terminating our relationship with him," ViacomCBS said in a statement released Tuesday (July 14).

AURORA, Colo. (AP) - Three officers were fired Friday over photos showing police reenact a chokehold used on Elijah McClain, a 23-year-old Black man who died last year after police stopped him on the street in a Denver suburb.

One of those fired is Jason Rosenblatt, a white Aurora officer who helped stop McClain in August for wearing a ski mask and "being suspicious." Police put McClain in a chokehold, paramedics injected him with a sedative and McClain suffered cardiac arrest before later being taken off life support.

Aurora Interim Police Chief Vanessa Wilson told reporters that officers sent the photos to Rosenblatt and others two months after McClain died to "cheer up a friend," without explaining who that was. Rosenblatt responded with a text saying, "Haha." Officer Nathan Woodyard, who put McClain in a chokehold, also got the photos but he was not disciplined because he didn't respond.

"We are ashamed, we are sickened, and we are angry," Wilson said. The officers may not have committed a crime, but the photographs are "a crime against humanity and decency," she added.

McClain's death has become a rallying cry amid a national reckoning over police brutality and racial injustice, with the state reopening the case for possible criminal charges and federal officials looking into a civil rights investigation. In several places, the chokehold has been banned and other police reforms passed after nationwide protests.

McClain's family, friends and community activists noted during a rally that justice was swifter for the mocking photograph than the use of force that led to McClain's death. The two other officers who stopped the young man are still on the force as authorities look again into possible criminal charges after clearing them last year.

"Rosenblatt got fired not for killing Elijah, not for murdering Elijah, but for making fun of Elijah," said Terrence Roberts, a community organizer and family friend. "That is the culture that we're fighting, where a police officer can murder a black man, a black child, and keep his job and stay on the force so he can go make fun of this child."

Officers Kyle Dittrich, Erica Marrero and Jaron Jones - none of whom confronted McClain in August - smiled and mockingly placed each other in a chokehold in the photos taken in October near a memorial for McClain.

An officer reported the photos to a sergeant late last month, and an internal investigation began.

Rosenblatt, Dittrich and Marrero were fired for conduct unbecoming of an officer. Jones resigned earlier this week.

The Aurora Police Association called the investigation "a rush to judgment." The union for officers said on Facebook that the investigation took nine days, while a standard internal affairs case takes months.

Several police agencies have taken swift action to punish officers, including those involved in George Floyd's death May 25 in Minneapolis that ushered in global demonstrations.

For Elijah McClain's mother, Sheneen McClain, "it was just devastating to see that people were mocking the murder of her son," family attorney Mari Newman said.

"The fact that three on-duty, in-uniform police officers thought that it was appropriate to reenact the murder, jokingly, shows that the department is rotten to the core," she said.

Facing increasing pressure as celebrities and others on social media called for justice, Colorado Gov. Jared Polis last week ordered the state attorney general to reopen McClain's case.

The officers stopped McClain, a massage therapist, after a 911 call on Aug. 24 reported him as suspicious because he was wearing a ski mask and flailing his arms. He begged them repeatedly to let go of him, according to body-camera video.

After the chokehold that cut off blood to his brain, paramedics administered 500 milligrams of a sedative to calm him down. A forensic pathologist could not determine what exactly led to McClain's death but said physical exertion during the confrontation likely contributed.

A prosecutor said he didn't pursue criminal charges against the officers because the pathologist wasn't able to determine if their actions caused McClain's death. District Attorney Dave Young recently called the young man's death "tragic and unnecessary" but defended his decision.

Police body-camera video shows an officer getting out of his car, approaching McClain and saying, "Stop right there. Stop. Stop. ... I have a right to stop you because you're being suspicious."

In the video, the officer turns McClain around and repeats, "Stop tensing up." As McClain tries to escape the officer's grip, the officer says, "Relax, or I'm going to have to change this situation."

As other officers join to restrain McClain, he begs them to let go and says, "You guys started to arrest me, and I was stopping my music to listen."

Aurora police have said McClain refused to stop walking and fought back when officers tried to take him into custody.

In the video, McClain tells officers: "Let go of me. I am an introvert. Please respect the boundaries that I am speaking."

The U.S. attorney's office, the U.S. Justice Department's Civil Rights Division and the FBI announced this week they are looking into whether to launch a civil rights investigation. Federal authorities said they also were considering an investigation into the photos.

Jada Pinkett Smith said she was going to bring herself to the table and sure enough, she did.

The actress revealed the highly anticipated episode of Red Table Talk on Facebook Watch on Friday (July 10) after holding off for a week due to various circumstances occurring throughout the country. She sat down across from her husband Will Smith and finally put to bed all of the questions surrounding her relationship with August Alsina.

"I got into an entanglement with August ... a relationship," Jada said after revealing that she and her husband of 22 years had been separated at the time. "I was in a lot of pain. I was broken."

She added, "I just wanted to feel good. It had been so long since I feel good, right? And it felt good to help heal someone. I think it dealt a lot with my co-dependency ... needing to fix, needing to help, there's something about that childhood trauma that feels as though it can be fixed through fixing people versus fixing me."

According to Jada's timeline, the two got involved with one another as she and Will were separated in 2016. It initially began as a friendship and then evolved into something more. When Will and Jada reconciled, that's when Alsina cut all communication to Jada. The Smiths did dispel the notion that Will gave August "his blessing" to date Jada as the only person who would have been able to give Jada permission to date anybody is Jada.

The singer recently spoke on the relationship in an interview promoting his new album as well as his journey through health challenges and the loss of close family.

"People can have whatever ideas that they like. But what I'm not OK with my character being in question ..." Alsina

"I was sure I never was gon' speak to you again," the I Am Legend star said. "The fact that I'm speaking to you again is a miracle."

A Brazilian man infected with the AIDS virus has shown no sign of it for more than a year since he stopped HIV medicines after an intense experimental drug therapy aimed at purging hidden, dormant virus from his body, doctors reported Tuesday.

The case needs independent verification and it's way too soon to speculate about a possible cure, scientists cautioned.

"These are exciting findings but they're very preliminary," said Dr. Monica Gandhi, an AIDS specialist at the University of California, San Francisco. "This has happened to one person, and one person only," and it didn't succeed in four others given the same treatment, she said.

Another UCSF specialist, Dr. Steven Deeks, said: "This is not a cure," just an interesting case that merits more study.

The case was described at an AIDS conference where researchers also disclosed an important prevention advance: A shot of an experimental medicine every two months worked better than daily Truvada pills to help keep uninfected gay men from catching HIV from an infected sex partner. Hundreds of thousands of people take these "pre-exposure prevention" pills now and the shot could give a new option, almost like a temporary vaccine.

If the Brazil man's case is confirmed, it would be the first time HIV has been eliminated in an adult without a bone marrow or stem cell transplant. Independent experts want to see whether his remission lasts and for the intense drug combination that he received to undergo more testing.

"I'm very moved because it's something that millions of people want," said the 35-year-old man, whose spoke to The Associated Press on condition that his name not be published. "It's a gift of life, a second chance to live."

Transplants are how two other men, nicknamed the Berlin and London patients for where they were treated, were cured previously.

"I'm the living proof it's possible to be cured," Adam Castillejo, the London patient, said in a news conference at the AIDS meeting, which is being held online because of the coronavirus pandemic.

He and the Berlin patient, Timothy Ray Brown, had donors with a gene that confers natural immunity to HIV infection. Such transplants are too medically risky and impractical to attempt on a large scale, so doctors have been trying other approaches.

It's hard to eliminate HIV because it establishes an early "reservoir" of blood cells where it lies dormant and can't be attacked by medicines or the immune system. Infections can be controlled with drugs, but as soon as patients stop taking them, the dormant virus activates and renews the disease.

Dr. Ricardo Diaz of the University of Sao Paulo in Brazil led a study testing strong and new drug combinations to try to purge this reservoir.

"We are trying to wake up the virus" and boost the immune system's ability to eliminate it once it's flushed out of hiding, Diaz explained. The Brazil man had been taking a standard three-drug combo to suppress his virus. In September 2015, Diaz added two newer ones to intensify his treatment - dolutegravir and maraviroc - plus nicotinamide, a form of vitamin B3 that may help expose dormant virus.

After nearly a year, the patient went back to the standard three drugs for two more years, then stopped all HIV medicines in March 2019. The virus has been undetectable in many blood and tissue samples since then.

"We can't search the entire body, but by the best evidence, we do not have infected cells," Diaz said.

The most convincing evidence: Tests show the man has lost nearly all HIV antibodies - substances the immune system makes when fighting the virus.

Eager for independent verification, the patient said he went to a counseling center for an anonymous HIV test in February. It was negative.

"He made a picture of the results" and sent a photo of them, Diaz said.

The antibody results are "the most fascinating part of this story," said Deeks. "These are solid scientists" and "the team may have come up with something that helps," but it's going to take verification of these results and much more testing to know, he said.

In particular, doctors will want to see proof from blood tests that the patient truly had stopped his HIV medicines. Diaz said all HIV patients in Brazil get their medicines from a government health program and that he verified the man had stopped.

"I think it's very promising. This patient might be cured," but it will take more time to know, Diaz said.

The treatment did not succeed in four others treated the same way, or in any of the others in the 30-person study testing related approaches.

Diaz said he has approval for a new study in 60 patients, sponsored by government grants in Brazil and by ViiV Healthcare, the British company that makes maraviroc.

Dr. Anton Pozniak, head of the AIDS conference and an HIV specialist at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital in London, said more time is needed to see if the virus rebounds.

"I'm waiting. I'm a skeptic about all of this ... until a couple of years go by," he said.

The separate study on prevention involved nearly 4,600 people in North and South America, Asia, and Africa. It tested shots of ViiV's experimental drug cabotegravir against daily pills of Truvada, the Gilead Sciences drug already approved for preventing HIV infection.

The study was stopped early, in May, when the shot seemed at least as effective as the pills. Final results now show the shot works better - there were 13 new infections among those who got it versus 39 among those taking Truvada, said the study leader, Dr. Raphael Landovitz of the University of California, Los Angeles.

"People can stay protected without having taken a pill every day," he said. "You get a shot and you don't have to do anything for two months. That's incredibly powerful."

The results "could revolutionize prevention for HIV worldwide" and give a new option for people who don't want to take a daily pill, Gandhi said.

ViiV has said it will seek U.S. approval for cabotegravir; its eventual price is unknown. Truvada costs $1,600 to $1,800 a month, but what patients pay out of pocket depends on insurance and other factors. With either drug, people are still urged to use condoms to prevent other sexually spread diseases.

Anthony Fauci said the number of cases had never reached a satisfactory baseline before the current resurgence, which officials have warned risks overwhelming hospitals in the South and West.

"It's a serious situation that we have to address immediately," Fauci said in a web interview with National Institutes of Health director Francis Collins.

But Fauci added he didn't strictly consider the ongoing rise in cases a "wave."

"It was a surge or a resurgence of infections superimposed upon a baseline," he said.

"If you look at the graphs from Europe, the European Union as an entity, it went up and then came down to the baseline. Now they're having little blips, as you might expect, as they try to reopen. We went up, never came down to baseline, and now we're surging back up."

The death toll from the virus in the U.S. hit 130,000 Monday, according to a tally by Johns Hopkins University, and the number of infections is nearing three million.

A worrisome number of new cases are being reported amid a resurgence that's forced several states to suspend phased economic reopenings.

Fauci, who heads the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, is a leading member of President Trump's Coronavirus Task Force and has become a trusted face in the administration's battle against the epidemic.

The U.S. is the world's hardest-hit nation from the virus and has been struggling to come to grips with a new normal of social distancing and mask-wearing.

Officials have warned that some of the country's hospitals are in danger of being overwhelmed by the influx of COVID-19 patients.

Hospital beds are full in parts of Texas, while calls for fresh stay-at-home orders are growing.

Some mayors have said their cities reopened too early as Mr. Trump tries to downplay the severity of the crisis, prioritizing economic reopening instead.
