In a Wednesday night Instagram post, the singer said her former “The Real” co-host Loni Love was responsible for getting her fired from the talk show three years ago.

In the post, which has since been deleted, Braxton shared a screenshot of a text message thread between her and an anonymous person. The messages alleged Love wrote the network to get Braxton kicked off of the show. 

However, Love fired back, denying the allegations. 

“Who writes letters? Who sent this?… let’s talk it out…stop going on every other show. You know you want to,” Love wrote in the comments section. 

But Braxton stood by her remarks Thursday, calling Love a “liar” on Twitter and revealing she was “mad and depressed” for even engaging in “negativity.”

The back-and-forth began after Braxton’s Wednesday appearance on “The Wendy Williams Show,” where she discussed whether she’d return to “The Real.” She also subtly addressed Love, who invited her to the show as a guest months ago. 

“Here’s the thing. I don’t want to be anybody’s marketing tool this season, no shade,” she said. “I just wish everybody well and I feel like sometimes God has to move you out of situations before you become more toxic to yourself.”

Despite the bitter exchanges, Love said Braxton is still welcome on “The Real.”
