Tyrese Gibson wants people to know that he hasn’t completely lost it!!
As we previously reported, the Fast & Furious star tearfully begged his ex-wife, Norma Gibson, to drop her fight for a restraining order against him. Not only did Gibson completely lose it when he realized how long he’d been away from his daughter with Norma, named Shayla, he also called out his A-list friends who’ve abandoned him during his time of need.
While many of Tyrese’s loved ones think he’s in the middle of a nervous breakdown, the actor has toldTMZ that his actions are simply those of a desperate father trying to maintain a relationship with his 10-year-old. The 38-year-old has vehemently denied the abuse allegations that Norma has made against him and says his former love is doing this out of spite.
In case you forgot, last week, Norma took the stand and detailed an alleged history of abuse by the actor, claiming he punched her in the stomach when she was pregnant with their daughter.
Apparently, this legal drama has bled Tyrese’s finances — which is why he’s so pissed that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has interfered with Fast 9‘s production. As you surely know, Gibson put Johnson on blast for agreeing to do a Fast spin-off, a solo project which will delay the ninth movie in the OG franchise by a year.
The Shame singer has since accused Dwayne of interfering in his daughter’s “survival” and has threatened to quit the Fast 9 flick altogether. The industry vet ranted on Instagram:
Hello world………. hello loyal fans and loved ones from OUR fast universe…….. I├óΓé¼Γäóm sorry to announce that if Dewayne is in Fast9 there will no more Roman Peirce – You mess with family and my daughters survival I mess with yours……… close your eyes dude you├óΓé¼Γäóre a “Clown”…… #CandyAssBitchMade All my real one…. Men on integrity… my real ones out here stand UP…… folks that GP to the gym and get big naturally #NoJuice #NoOJ spin off huh? Spin off these nuts selfish champ…… pause notice who├óΓé¼Γäós got his arms around my shoulder and who├óΓé¼Γäós standing alone – #OurChildrenMatterA post shared by TYRESE (@tyrese) on Nov 1, 2017 at 9:46am PDT
Although, since Tyrese claims he desperately needs the paycheck and that the abuse accusations have made him unemployable, we doubt his threats are sincere. We guess we’ll just have to wait and see!
