Tyrese reveals Will Smith, Jada Pinkett Smith gave him $5 million
The Fate of the Furious star just got a generous gift from pals Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith.
On Sunday, Nov. 5, 2017, Tyrese (full name Tyrese Gibson) shared a series of photos of the famous couple on Instagram, revealing that the pair had given him and his family $5 million. “When we show UP for each-other there’s nothing that can’t be done I️ repeat nothing,” Tyrese captioned the post. “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.”
As a result of getting the money, Tyrese said that he “will listen” and “get off and stay off the internet” now that he knows he’ll be able to pay his legal fees.
He continued, “The Gibson’s Uncle Will you’re an uncle for real.”
As Nicki Swift previously reported, Tyrese had a social media meltdown of sorts on Nov. 2, 2017, obviously beaten down by his legal battle against ex-wife Norma Gibson, who’d accused him of beating their 10-year-old daughter, Shayla. In a video, he cried out for his daughter, who he said he hadn’t seen in months. Admitting that he’d been struggling to find work, he also called out his wealthy friends for not offering to help.
Since then, the child abuse investigation against Tyrese has been dropped (via People).
While we wait to learn more about what this means for Tyrese and his daughter, read up on the untold truth of the Fate of the Furious cast.
