After previously blaming a prescription drug for his downward spiral, singer Tyrese Gibson is setting the record straight. The “Fast 9” star admitted on Instagram Tuesday, Nov. 28 that he lied about his financial woes, getting money from Will and Jada Pinkett Smith and his wife’s pregnancy.
“To clear the air ’cause I’m an open book and got nothing to hide,” he began. “My wife is NOT pregnant and never was (those meds had me on one) I owe no one any money on any level matter of fact I just took care of both of my lawyers fully $108,000 for my lawyer and almost $20,000 for [my daughter] Shayla’s lawyer. I could never give what I don’t have. Smart folks do the math! And I’ve already mentioned that there was [sic] a few talks with the Smiths and those meds made me jump out there and speak on monies that never came in — I’ve already again apologized to them privately and publicly for everything.”
This has been a wild few months for Gibson, who earlier in November said he was prescribed a drug called Rexulti, which he blamed for his erratic behavior. That included sobbing over his custody battle with his ex-wife Norma Mitchell Gibson and claiming that he was broke. He later said that the Smiths were giving him $5 million before saying the funds “ain’t came in yet,” two days later.
“Again I apologize to those of you that I’ve let down from the ‘way’ this all looks but we live and learn and I’ve learned a LOT,” the “Fast 9” star concluded. “For my so-called loved ones who went out of their to step on me while I was down. I know exactly who you are… and I [have] seen everything. I love you too. This is my last post about the past. Let’s move on shall we?”
But not everyone is feeling Gibson’s post, which was accompanied by a series of horoscopes about Capricorns.
Others were simply caught up in the Capricorn astrology.
