Friends come and go. But real friends last a lifetime. It’s not hard to find friends to hang out with when you’re rich, famous, and good looking. It’s when things aren’t looking so lavish and luxurious that the good friends stand out from the fake ones. As Tyrese Gibson himself said in a video: ‘there ain’t nobody showing up for me. I’ve got all these millionaire friends, I’ve got billionaire friends. I’ve been there for you, why is nobody there for me.’
Tyrese is currently embattled in a lawsuit with his ex-wife, Norma Gibson, for custody of their ten-year-old daughter, Shayla.
Tyrese says he hasn’t seen his daughter in over two months and that this is all due to his ex-wife’s attempt at placing a restraining order against him.
But amidst all this gloom, there seems to be a couple that is looking out for Tyrese.
He recently went on Instagram to show his love for Will and Jada-Pinkett Smith after they allegedly donated $5 million to his lawsuit.
On Instagram, he posted: ‘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 five million dollars to help keep us afloat.’
The Fast and Furious star continued: ‘you’ve guys asked me to get off and stay off the internet now that my daughter’s legal fees will be paid! Will listen. The Smiths’s [sic] and their whole family has always shown up for The Gibson’s [sic] Uncle Will you’re an uncle for real.’
According to TMZ, the Smiths, who have long been friends with Tyrese, are worried that he’s ‘having some sort of breakdown’ during all these personal and legal problems.
But according to TMZ, sources that are ‘directly connected’ with Will and Jada say the donation ‘simply isn’t true.’
The Smiths deny any sort of financial aid but an Instagram post by Tyrese shows him apparently on the phone with Jada, who might have been helping him with his custody battle.
The Department of Child and Family Services investigated Tyrese after accusations from his wife came forth but no criminal charges were pressed after the investigation was dropped. This legal battle all comes during a personal feud between him and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.
