Mourning Lauren “LoLo” Braxton‘s death does NOT fit in Tamar Braxton‘s schedule.
As we reported, the 24-year-old — whose father is sole Braxton brother, Michael Conrad Braxton Jr. — died in Maryland, reportedly due to a heart condition.
In a recent Instagram Live video that was captured by blog YBF Chic, the former The Real host said she is unable to attend her niece’s funeral because she does not have the time.
The Tamar & Vince star — who is currently touring with Kandi Burruss on her Welcome To The Dungeon experience — remarked in the clip:
“I’ve been M.I.A. because I just cannot bring myself to post about my niece. Like, I just can’t do it… But what I did want to say is I want to thank everyone for sending their condolences.”
Because Lauren is the first person in her family to pass away, the 42-year-old suggested she is unfamiliar with how one is supposed to properly grieve a loss.
“I don’t want my sisters or my family to get upset with me, but the things that’s been going on — this is the first time that anybody in my family has passed… Nobody tell you about going to the damn funeral. I don’t have time going to the funeral.”
The singer added:
“I’m still drained from that … It’s a lot… Everything happens in God’s divine order and you’ve got to respect it and praise him anyway.”

Needless to say, social media users were not happy with “selfish” Tamar’s comments.
“She ain’t too drained to respond to every damn thing on social media. So self centered, it’s terrible. Drama queen for real.”
“She has enough energy to do her show and to tell everyone to watch the braxton show, but she can’t go to the funeral, i think she would have been better just staying quiet. I know every body grieves differently, but after watching this, i think she is a very selfish person. Michael is your brother and Lauren was your niece, make time and be with him, he lost a child, that has to be very painful. I used to like Tamar, but now i have lost respect for her.”
“Just say you are not able to attend period since you have enough energy to jump in front of the cameras every 5 minutes for everything else.”
Reportedly, after receiving a 911 call around noon, law enforcement arrived at Lauren’s residence and found her unresponsive.
Per the police report, a friend said she was talking to the 24-year-old in her kitchen, and went upstairs for just 10 minutes. Reportedly, when the friend returned to the kitchen, LoLo was on the floor.
She was later pronounced dead by paramedics.
As we wrote, aunt Toni Braxton paid tribute to her niece on social media by writing:
“R.I.P to my amazing niece Lauren ‘Lo Lo’ Braxton…
I’m still in disbelief and so very heartbroken… Love you…always auntie ‘Te Te’”
R.I.P., Lauren. You will be missed.
