Everything that glitters ain’t gold.
Just a few days ago, Tyrese Gibson was on his Instagram page showing himself a little self-love by saying how he’s grown to love his dark complexion. Now Gibson is back on the social media site, and keeping it real with fans about the “issues” that come with having a lavish lifestyle.
Pairing a lengthy caption with the video, the former R&B singer opened up to his followers about the harsh realities that come with rich living. He recently posted a now-deleted short clip of his roof leaking water and showed a few white towels lying on the floor that were presumably meant to catch the leaking water.
“Social media is full of frauds who won’t keep it a buck,” said the “Four Brothers” actor. “Fake relationships with filters, delivery of the new Lamborghini or Rolls Royce truck but never the repo man taking the truck cause they are 1/2 year behind on payment. The mansion is amazing until you discover leaks,” he wrote.
Gibson went on to list off which parts of his living conditions are not an issue. “Mortgage got it, landscaping got it,” he assured readers. But then he got to the unglamorous aspect of his lavish digs: “These unexpected month to month issues what in the entire F!”
To clarify, he explained that while he loves his home, he did not realize upgrading from a 6,500 square-foot property to a 25,000-foot one would require so much more maintenance.
“I still want you to ball out and get your mansion but it’s me JOB as one of your favorite people to give you the HEADS UP of what you’re walking into so you’re not blindsided like me,” he said. Speaking directly to the staff that fixed his roof, the 42-year-old apologized for them having to do the job in the rain but thanked them “for fixing the leak.”
Gibson moved into his luxurious residence earlier this year. The six-story home in Atlanta’s tony Buckhead neighborhood has a total of seven bedrooms. Speaking to Architectural Digest in June, he revealed that his bedroom requires a password to enter, and if that isn’t shocking enough, the “Transformers” actor also has a 16-foot tall statue of the Transformer Bumblebee.
