Don’t be fooled: An Adrienne Bailon imposter wrote an Instagram post about cyberbullying Monday after Tamar Braxton was fired from “The Real.” It seemed like the post was in retaliation to Braxton’s “backstabbing” post, but, the whole thing is just a hoax.
Even though the account has nearly 14,000 followers, it’s a phony. Bailon’s verified account has more than 2.6 million followers.
The fake Bailon didn’t address Braxton, but instead dedicated the post to “cyberbullying.” It’s a cryptic move that celebs sometimes take when they call out a fellow star. The hoaxer wrote: “People bully you through social media, not knowing how it could affect on somebody. Not only are they NOT thinking about their actions, it could kill someone. The world is full of lies without TRUTH! Humble yourself as I take the moment and share this.”
The message received only 53 likes, which is a major hint that it wasn’t real. An average post from Bailon generally attracts tens of thousands of likes.
Even though Braxton didn’t name Bailon in her post about being backstabbed, many think the former Cheetah Girl is responsible since Media Take Out called out the star Sunday. “It’s all about jealousy, and it’s all over Adrienne — who is the ring leader,” an insider told MTO. “Adrienne never will be Tamar — she can’t sing like Tamar, doesn’t have a fan base like Tamar and she doesn’t have any personality like Tamar. Tell that GUTTER RAT that I hope their show fails now.”
But Bailon supposedly didn’t act alone. Co-stars Jeannie Mai and Loni Love were involved, too. “They kept trying to make it seem like Tamar was a problem,” the insider added. “Tamar has NEVER been a problem. She took some time off for health reasons, and for her tour — which helped the show by the way, but everything was agreed to beforehand.”
Braxton didn’t help the rumor when she wrote a post about being backstabbed, and she said it had nothing to do with her famous family. “I love u all but I have been stabbed in the back by someone I stupidly trusted (not my man or my sisters) I am not about to be tried and tested to snitch and it's not in good taste to tell you who,” she wrote Sunday night.
I love u all but I have been stabbed in the back by someone I stupidly trusted ( not my man or my sisters) I am not about to be tried and tested to snitch (_) and it's not in good taste to tell you who...... but as #tamartians you are very smart and can figure things out on your own. But know that every one who smiles in your face is NOT your friend and is NOT cheering for you and will LIE and try and tear u down to TRY and dim your light. Thank GOD HE HOLDS MY FUTURE AND MY HAND! (Remember who u are)....I am Tamar Braxton.
