You may or may not be surprised to learn that Will and Jada Pinkett Smith may or may not have actually given Tyrese Gibson that oversized novelty check he posted about on Instagram. TMZ says their sources in the Pinkett-Smith camp have taken a large dump on that particular story.
According to TMZ:
Tyrese claims Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith gave him a whopping $5 million so he could dig himself out of a financial hole from his custody case, but sources directly connected to both Will and Jada say it simply isn’t true.
Sounds like Tyrese has an active imagination and a rich internal life! That’s a positive thing we can say about Tyrese. I think he’s make a spectacularly good D&D Dungeon Master, a children’s book author, a stage magician or a LARPer!
Sadly, Tyrese’s very public problems and behavior are alarming. According to TMZ, Will and Jada are worried about their pal/lover/acquaintance (who can say?!).
Will and Jada have been friends with Tyrese for years, and we’re told they’re extremely worried Tyrese is having some sort of a breakdown.
When he posted about the monopoly money he got from the Pinkett-Smiths, Tyrese said it was conditional on his keeping his business off of social media. Well, even if that money was real, Tyrese has been unable to chill for even one minute. In his most recent Instagram posts, he’s been encouraging folks to jump over to his Facebook page to get a dose of his sad ramblings.
I looked over there so you don’t have to. Tyrese is a mess. He’s having a real “Bumblebee take the wheel moment“.
And let’s not forget his long suffering wife.
Um, Tyrese, I don’t think telling you to bring a fire extinguisher with you was meant as a compliment. I don’t even have any more jokes for him. I hope he gets help. Not financial help but “The Dr. Is In” type help.
