Tamar Braxton got candid about her suicide attempt and shared that her son, Logan, 7, had something to do with it.

Braxton opened up about her suicide attempt in an exclusive clip obtained by Entertainment Tonight for the upcoming episode of "Peace of Mind With Taraji." During the interview, she shared that she thought Logan would be better off without her.

"Logan was the reason why I made that decision. I just felt like he deserved better. I felt like I was embarrassing him, being a fool on TV," Braxton broke down in tears while saying.

"You thought he would be better without you?" Tara P. Henson asked her.

"I thought in that moment," she replied. "Because I knew that’s not what my whole life really was. That’s not who I was. I didn’t want him to be embarrassed in front of his friends. Here is this loudmouth ghetto mama."

On "Surviving Mental Breakdown With Tamar Braxton," the singer and TV personality further shared more details about her mental breakdown, suicide attempt and what pushed her to do it with Henson

Braxton was found unresponsive at the Ritz-Carlton Residences on July 16. She was transferred to a local hospital facility and received more specialized mental health treatment.

"That was the lowest point of life. I'm just going to be 100 percent. There has been a time where I wanted to, but this was the first time where I've actually acted on it," she told Tamron Hall about the incident.

"I already felt dead. I felt choked. It was about feeling like I could never be myself and being misunderstood and having the stigma of the angry Black woman all the time.”

Meanwhile, back in July, Braxton wrote a letter seemingly blaming the WeTV bosses for breaking her, ruining her family and pushing her to become suicidal. The reality star said her family was in "disarray" due to the reality show "Braxton Family Values."

In the letter, she wrote about the network finding out a secret she never shared with anyone because she was so ashamed to talk about it. She didn't even tell her mom about it. Braxton admitted that she was assaulted and repeatedly raped from age 6 to 16 and alleged that the producers "exposed it on your show in front of my entire family and 100 crew members."

"You broke me that day and I considered ending my own life then for the shame I felt!" she wrote and concluded the email with a plea to set her free from "the chains" because she "can't breathe."
