What are friends for?
The recent past has been a rough patch for Tyrese Gibson.
When he posted an emotional video of himself sobbing over the issue of a dramatic custody battle over his daughter in tandem with a child abuse investigation after his ex-wife accused him of striking their 10-year old daughter so hard that she could not sit down, he mentioned that his “millionaire” friends were not there for him when he needed them most.
But it turns out that not everyone had allegedly turn their backs as he recently revealed that Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith gave the actor and singer $5 million to help him with his legal fees under the condition that he stays off the internet as he focuses on his real-life issues. Of course, he didn’t quite follow through on the condition until after he posted the news on Instagram to let us know about the Smiths’ benevolence in the first place.
Nonetheless, it’s a touching piece of news in the slew of headlines that have plagued the Fast & Furious franchise star, considering the other matter of his “beef” with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson after taking issue with Johnson’s Fast & Furious spin-off film. “My wife just started my morning off on the right foot,” he penned in an Instagram post.
“When we show UP for each other, there’s nothing that can’t be done! …Jada Pinkett-Smith and my brother Will Smith just sent us 5 million to help keep us afloat. You guys asked my to get off and stay off the internet now that my daughter’s legal fees will be paid!”
“Just know that God is the greatest," he wrote in another post. "They don’t want any love….. They told me to go easy…. just know that it’s just good to know there’s still some really nice sincere people out here…… Jada-Pinkett-Smith and my hero WILL SMITH….. Not only does your heart beat for Shayla…… it beats for the world……. We love and appreciate you more thank you could ever know…”
In addition to this, the Los Angeles Department for Children and Family Services have also dropped their investigation against Tyrese in regard to the child abuse allegations. Currently, his ex-wife Norma Gibson is seeking full custody of their daughter in addition to a permanent restraining order against Tyrese. Hopefully, Gibson can actually stay off of social media long enough to have both his personal and professional issues resolved.
