Actor Tyrese Gibson has been trending for the past for few days on social media all because he decided to record himself crying following his child support case.
38-year-old Gibson, who has done good for himself in Hollywood, is reportedly struggling to keep up with his child support payments each month. But how much can one’s child support payment be that someone had to chip in and give $5 mil? Yes, $5 million!
The Fast & Furious star battled his ex-wife Norma Mitchell Gibson for custody of their daughter, 10-year-old Shayla, after he was accused of abusing his daughter. According to reports, the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services closed their investigation Thursday.
In response to the good news, Gibson then thanked his wife, Samantha Lee, for being his rock shortly before popping the question again:
“When your 1st charge get dropped your wife’s mind will finally REST!!!!!” the actor wrote. “Thank you Jesus for sending me a fierce and strong wife who is educated and resilient that was able to stand with me so far though this unexpected storm… We stress so that our wives and kids can rest.”
He continued by sharing a quote from television writer Matt Baker.
“She never seemed shattered; to me, she was a breathtaking mosaic of the battles she’s won,” the quote read.
Later adding, “My wife…….. God ! love you…. let’s get married again.”
Tyrese broke down in tears last week when discussing his custody hearing, which made some question the stability of his mental health. “Don’t take my baby. This is all I got. Don’t take my baby, OK?” Tyrese sobbed Wednesday. “I’ve been away from my baby for two months. I just want my baby, and no one’s listening ’cause no one’s in the courtroom.”
“I’m at $13,000 a month, what more do you want from me?” he said loudly toward the end of his Facebook post. “I don’t hate you Norma. I don’t know why you hate me, but I don’t hate you. But you just can’t wake up on September 11th and accuse me of something I didn’t do!”
Norma filed for physical and legal custody of Shayla in October after Tyrese was accused of hitting his daughter. A judge temporarily granted a restraining order: Tyrese was forced to stay 100 yards away from Norma, Shayla and their home.
Tyrese denied the accusations against him, previously telling People magazine they were “hurtful lies.”
He also revealed that Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith gave him $5 million to stay off the internet and to help with legal fees “since he’s broke.” Damn, I need friends like Will and Jada!
