The Tamar Braxton Show Where It All Happened

TMZ suggests that James Wright, a back-up singer for Tamar Braxton during her show, was attacked. He alleged that Chrisean Rock had been scheduled to come on stage towards the end. Her cue involved just twerking. However, things got out of hand when Wright confronted Rock to redirect her. The backup singer had told her she was in the wrong spot, but he was met with a smackdown — literally.

Chrisean Rock Slammed with Lawsuit

James Wright’s lawsuit portrays Chrisean Rock as the aggressor at Tamar Braxton’s show. He accused her of assaulting his face with her hands, adorned with “large champion-style rings.” As a result, the heavy blows left him with broken teeth and lacerations.

In addition to the physical abuse, Chrisean Rock is accused of being homophobic. Wright stated that during her attack, she uttered homophobic slurs.

The aftermath of the experience is indeed horrifying for Tamar Braxton’s backup singer, who maintains that he was hospitalized. Wright also spent money visiting a plastic surgeon and a dentist to fix his face. While he wants the court to hold Rock accountable for her actions, Wright is seeking a settlement that includes medical fees and other debts.

Chrisean Rock has yet to refute the accusations. However, there is a possibility that Braxton might have addressed the incident mentioned in Wright’s lawsuit. Following her show, Tamar Braxton explained that Rock was in disbelief after she realized that her role in the show was not as glamorous. What followed was the performer feeling agitated.
