Tyrese Gibson has been dealing with a custody battle with his ex-wife Norma Gibson over their 10-year-old daughter, Shayla. Tyrese has been using his social media to express his feelings about the court dealings, including how his celebrity friends have not been there to support him.
This week, Tyrese posted in a now deleted Instagram post that his friends, Will & Jada Smith lent him money to help him stay “afloat” as he deals with his family drama.
“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…”
However, sources closest to The Smiths denies that the couple gave the Fast & Furious star any financial help, according to TMZ.
In a more recent share, the actor says that just today (November 8th) he was told by the courts that he can no longer post about his daughter. We’ll see if Tyrese can follow the court rules and not give any updates about his young Shayla.
