Tyrese Gibson won’t let up in his grievances against The Rock. In a series of posts on Instagram Wednesday, Nov. 1, Gibson caused concern among fans for once again blasting his “Fast and Furious” co-star. The singer, who is currently embroiled in a nasty custody battle with his ex-wife, blasted Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson for taking on a stand-alone “Fast and Furious” spinoff about his character.
“I was never mad at The Rock — I was just mad that he was ‘pitched’ an idea privately and said yes to it without thinking of what I’m dealing with personally,” Gibson wrote of his year-long dustup with his co-star. “I’m almost broke paying legal fees and is doing what we committed to doing for the #FastFans and #FastFamily cause the fast is tradition it’s not just another movie. Fast was created to COUNTER images of racism to counter that WE ARE NOT ONE RACE…… So The Rock how does it feel bro?…. going home to your daughter every night…. it’s [been] 60 days [since] I’ve seen my baby….. ”
Gibson fiercely criticized Johnson for what he seemed to indicate was the wrestler-turned-actor getting in the way of his income. Gibson’s ex Norma Mitchell Gibson accused him of abusing their 10-year-old daughter Shayla in September court documents. The singer has spent the last week lashing out online.
The post capped off a month of other ones describing Gibson’s ongoing struggle to see his daughter. In videos and in photo captions, the actor expressed his love for Shayla in the wake of a hearing regarding his temporary restraining order. The Blast cited sources that said Gibson nearly reached an agreement for the abuse case but he wouldn’t settle.
The star’s clips also saw him encourage fans to look up parental alienation and enmeshment. The former phrase is defined by Dr. Douglas Darnall as a set of behaviors “that could evoke a disturbance in the relationship between a child and the other parent.” Enmeshment, according to GoodTherapy.org, is the blurring of boundaries between people, typically among families.
“This is all I got,” Gibson says through tears in a Wednesday, Nov. 1 video as he pans down to his hoodie that says, “Shayla Rocks.” “This is all I got. Don’t take my baby, okay?”
