Tamar Braxton Reportedly Blasts Photographers for Abandoning “Hot Sugar” Video


Courtesy of Tamar Braxton’s InstagramEarlier this week, Tamar Braxton released the video to her new single, “Hot Sugar,” which which was inspired by the isolated video feature on Instagram.   If the online comments on the video are any indication, the visual received a mixed response from fans.  Now comes a report that the diva recently vented her frustrations about how the cinematic clip was shot.

According to TheYBF, Tamar accused photographers Steven Gomillion and Dennis Leupold of abandoning her video so they could shoot pictures of Rihanna for her Diamonds world tour.   The website posted screen captures of comments it says Braxton made on the photographers’ official Instagram page below photos of Rihanna. 

“I think you guys are very talented…but the way y’all did me for that #hotsugar video was pure F**KERY,” the screen shots read.  “I’m sure you wouldn’t do [Rihanna] like that, shoot a video, get paid, and disappear.” 

The comments also say the “other f**ked up part” is that Gomillion and Leupold decided not attach their name to the video or “blast the video” on their social media accounts.   “U live & you learn,” they conclude.

If the comments were made by Tamar, she may have chosen to delete them since they no longer appear on the photographers’ Instagram page, although responses to the comments still appear.

“Hot Sugar” appears on Tamar’s album, Love and War, which debuted at number one on the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts.
