Here today, gone tomorow…well, actually, promised today or thought it was promised today and it’s not coming tomorrow.
Actor Tyrese Gibson has had a horrible week. First he has a major meltdown on Facebook from stress caused by the custody battle for his daughter. Then he says Will Smith and wife Jada reached out and plan to help him with his money problems by giving him $5 million dollars.—Yeah, about that $5 million….
Entertainment news outlet the Jasmine Brand is reporting that the $5 million dollars from Will and Jada isn’t exactly money in the bank and it doesn’t look like its ever going to be. The news outlet says, the Smiths “are concerned about Tyrese Gibson’s mental well-being. The Hollywood couple are close to the ‘Fast & Furious’ actor and singer and reportedly believe that he’s experiencing some type of breakdown.” Family, friends and fans shared that concerned after Tyrese posted a tear filled Facebook video of him lashing out over the angst and financial hardship of fighting for custody of his ten year old daughter Shayla. A few days later, the dark cloud seemed to lifting when Tyrese posted on IG…
When we show UP for each-other there’s nothing that can’t be done I️ repeat nothing…… My wife kept the news away from me cause I’ve been on with lawyers all day but our family and our sister Jada-Pinkett Smith and my brother Will Smith just sent us 5 million dollars to help keep us afloat- You’ve guys asked me to get off and stay off the Internet now that my daughters legal fees will be paid ! will listen…..

And I’m saying again if you guys are out there in the Atlanta area please vote for @keishabottoms someone my daughter looks up to a LOT!!!! #ShaylaRocks
Either Tyrese misunderstood or Will understood, but Jada is setting it straight according to a Rollingout article which says, “At some point during the week, Jada Pinkett Smith allegedly called Tyrese. He posted a photo on Instagram of getting a call from Jada Pinkett Smith. The caller was listed as, “Actress Jada Pinkett Smith. Tyrese would later write a post that claimed that Will and Jada Pinkett Smith would give him $5M to help while he was going through his ordeal. He also wrote that Will and Jada told him to stay off of social media.”
The article goes on to say, “Several days after the post, a rep for Will Smith told TMZ that they did not donate the money. Tyrese likely destroyed any possibility of receiving money from Will and Jada by announcing the donation on social media. If they initially agreed to give him the money, Tyrese basically talked himself out of $5M.”
The article also says the case against Tyrese had been dropped and that the “Fast & Furious” actor says he’s getting away from it all and planning a trip to Dubai.
