The 43-year-old singer was rushed to hospital in July after she was found unresponsive at the Ritz-Carlton Residences at LA Live in Los Angeles, after attempting to take her own life.

And now, Tamar has opened up on her health scare, as she said her mental health had taken its toll on her.

When asked during an appearance on “The Tamron Hall Show” if she “took pills” during her suicide attempt, Tamar said: "It's so hard to say, Tamron, because I feel like there's a responsibility for - you know, I call them family, my fans, who watch. I don't want to give any examples. But what I will say is, that was my lowest point of life.”

The star also revealed that she is not taking medication, but she is in counselling.

Meanwhile, Tamar previously addressed her hospitalisation on Instagram, where she called for people to “normalise” acknowledging mental health struggles.

She wrote in part of a lengthy caption: “Over the past 11 years there were promises made to protect and portray my story, with the authenticity and honesty I gave.

“I was betrayed, taken advantage of, overworked, and underpaid.
