In a recent Instagram Live video, Tyrese Gibson, the multi-talented artist known for his music and roles in the Fast and Furious franchise, made his feelings known about his ex-wife, Samantha Lee. Samantha had recently claimed that certain people influenced her decision to divorce Tyrese. During an interview, Samantha Lee discussed her decision to divorce the singer, revealing that had she received guidance from a nurturing "pro-marriage community," she would not have initiated the legal process to terminate her marital relationship. Furthermore, she openly confessed that she would consider reuniting with Tyrese. On the condition that both parties were mutually committed to putting in the effort to mend their relationship. In response, Tyrese expressed his thoughts and made it clear that he's been loyal, faithful, and a "good man," to his ex-wife.

"The lawyers are on my back every day. Go sell this sh*t to somebody else," Tyrese said on live in response. "Look at every interview I've done, from Sway In The Morning to Breakfast Club. If you don't like me n***a I don't like you. I dont need none of you women in my comments saying they like me." He continued. "I don't care to be liked, I never cheated, I got more access to p***y to most n***as I know. I was a good man, a good husband, I was very, very focused on my family and children."

Tyrese Calls Out Samantha

Tyrese and Samantha's divorce was finalized in 2020, after four years of marriage. The couple, who shares a daughter, had once seemed like the picture-perfect pair. However, as in many celebrity relationships, the pressures of fame, coupled with personal and emotional differences, led them to part ways. Samantha Lee's recent revelation about her divorce has raised eyebrows and sparked curiosity. In her own Instagram Live session, she stated she wouldn't have divorced Tyrese if it wasn't for some people "in [her] ear." She also mentioned wanting to possibly rekindle things if "both parties were to put in the work."

Tyrese, however, was quick to address Samantha's claims in a subsequent Instagram Live session of his own. In a candid and heartfelt response, he made it clear that he was not interested in revisiting the past. The public response to Tyrese's comments has been mixed. Some fans and followers supported his decision to move forward independently, while others expressed their curiosity about the circumstances surrounding their divorce. "I agree with Tyrese on this one, wholeheartedly," one person wrote. "And his ex wife is fully aware that he is in a relationship now, so why even speak on potentially reconciling. She is definitely gaslighting." "One thing about it his story never changed," another wrote.
