Tyrese Meltdown! Singer Declares “I’m Almost Broke” / Drags The Rock (Again)

Published: Wednesday 1st Nov 2017 by Sam

Tyrese has long had a knack for sewing his words together well. However, the singing actor is coming apart at the seams.

Currently in the midst of custody battle with his ex Norma Gibson over their 10-year-old daughter Shayla, the pressure is clearly getting to the star.

In an odd set of moves, he took to social media to vent in a video about how the court case (which also includes a restraining order petition) is wearing him down. He says he has not seen his child in two months and that his pleas to do so aren’t being seen by the public because documents pertaining to the case are sealed.

He also adds that he is receiving no support from his millionaire and billionaire buddies.

The latter may seem random, but it’s not. For, Tyrese took to Instagram to declare in a long rant that the legal costs have left him “almost broke.”

That then served as a segue-way for him to re-heat his beef with ‘Fast & Furious’ co-star Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.

He’s still angry at the megatsr for proceeding with a ‘Fast’ spin-off project and somehow blames Rocky for impairing his own ability to earn by doing so. Bizarre.

All awaits after the jump…

Then came this IG essay (we trimmed the preceding part, as we’re not sure Tyrese even knew what he was trying to say:

I was never mad at The Rock – I was just mad that he was “pitched” an idea privately and said yes to it without thinking of what I’m dealing with personally I’m almost broke paying legal fees and is doing what we committed to doing for the #FastFansand #FastFamily cause the fast is tradition it’s not just another Movie Fast was created to COUNTER images of racism to counter that WE ARE NOT ONE RACE…… So the rock how does it feel bro?…. going home to your daughter every night…. it’s was 60 days before I seen my baby….. and all I asked you to do “privately” was NOT accept a role that would deeply effect us all……. You are simply NOT the people’s champ….. you are a selfish champ….. I’m almost broke swimming in legal fees CAA tried but couldn’t book me anything cause my ex wife killed my reputation so no one wants to hire me.. It’s not about I know I know I know right?? Says the man on the Forbes list.. Make sure you kiss your 2 daughters when you get home I wish I could but I can’t afford to fight for my baby anymore so they’re likely going to take her away……. Thanks Dewayne see you guys in 2020 and I will not delete this post cause the TRUTH of selfish people in Hollywood needs to be mentioned……………… to this day Dewayne has NOT called me back as u see me crying every 3 hours over my baby know #ShaylaRocks

This was then followed by…

A mess!

His frustrations about not seeing his daughter? Understandable.

The rest, especially the angst towards The Rock, is grade “A” trash.

On what planet does one movie franchise (which let’s be frank, he’s even lucky to be a part of) define his entire earning potential? Similarly, how does one person’s decision about their own career hamper his?

The public spectacle he’s making of himself sees him come across unstable, which in turn is counter-productive for his efforts to see his daughter.

Here’s hoping he gets the help needed as quickly as possible.

    Why is he almost broke when he’s been in 7 billion dollar films and had a #1 album two years ago? He needs to diversify his portfolio why isn’t he acting in other things? Hell he could do a couple stage plays

    • SMH November 1, 2017

      That’s what I said. Even though he’s not a big album seller, this franchise alone should have him set, he’s been a part of the ‘Fast’ movies for 15 years lol.

      • Terry November 3, 2017

        Like go perform where is your manager? The rock owes you nothing!

    • tay November 3, 2017

      He’s not a well-known actor.
      Paul Walker brought him into the Fast franchise and basically gave him millions by that.

      In some ways it’s a bit of karma. Because when Paul passed away, Tyrese ran to the media to try and monetize the situation and spread his own name. He did it with 0 class.

      I wish the situation with his daughter sorts out though.

  2. Excellent November 1, 2017

    Omg, I can not. I don’t know whether to laugh or cry. What a mess.

    • Bam November 1, 2017

      I won’t lie I laughed especially with that pic TGJ posted. That said it’s sad he’s in this legal battle trying to see his child when there are mothers who wish their child’s father would fight to be in the child’s life. Everything else is simply blaming someone else for your problems.

      • Paulo November 1, 2017

        the mother does not have his platform. don’t claim to know what’s going on between them.

      • Faf November 1, 2017

        She said he was abusive and he acts very erratically this isn’t helping

  3. pat November 1, 2017

    he needed an intervention a long time ago…..anybody who portrays that they have the answer to everybody else’s problems usually has a lot of issues.

  4. erica November 1, 2017

    I feel sorry for him but the rock is not responsible for him! it’s crazy how he feel like it’s this man fault he having problems with his daughter or better yet his financial situation that’s not his fault

  5. KP November 1, 2017

    These celebs are losing their minds.

  6. Linda Holding November 1, 2017

    Sounds like he may have brought all this on himself, but he should definitely be able to see his daughter it will help him get over some issues. I wish him well.

    • Truth Dot Com November 1, 2017

      After this rant he will need supervised visitation!
      Sadly. He needs to start selling that restaurant he has inside his million dollar home.
      Or at least allow the public to dine there for a price. LOL!

  7. cocobutta November 1, 2017

    He is definitely at a crossroads mentally. The better earn her rock on that finger and gather some family and friends to help him QUICKLY.

    I’m very concerned about him in all honesty. As much as he can annoying preaching what he can’t practice the struggle in his mind and spirit is evident. Good luck to him.

  8. truthteller November 1, 2017

    I hate to say this but his behaviour is probably down to drugs

    • SMH November 1, 2017

      Well you’re ignorance has lied to you. He’s not on drugs.

      • truthteller November 2, 2017

        The irony of somebody who doesn’t know the difference between “your” and “you’re” calling me ignorant

    • Jasmine November 1, 2017

      I agree he peobably is on drugs

  9. Fancy BISH November 1, 2017

    People seriously need to learn how to put the camera down! Our society is filming every little thing and it’s absolutely TOO MUCH…every reaction, every emotion, every outfit, every glam moment, every argument, every disaster, every booty shot, every EVERYTHING..Wendy just smiled about “trending” on the day she fainted…Azealia Banks ran to TMZ after the Russell incident, but only gives bits and pieces of info in FRONT of a CAMERA…Tyrese crying breath stinking in the morning…CHILE, it’s just TEW DAMN MUCH lol smh

    • TAMMAH November 2, 2017

      Lmfaooo @ TheLast Part!! U Said No Lies Though…It’s Sad Especially How Technology Is Advancing Every Year.

  10. SMH November 1, 2017

    Well, Vin Diesel apparently also had issues with The Rock while filming the last ‘Fast’ movie, even though he didn’t rant about it on social media lol. Tyrese’s craziness aside, its obvious The Rock has ego issues. He’s not Mr. Innocent. But unless they’re gonna kill the ‘Fast’ franchise & build a new one with the spin-off, I don’t get how the spin-off can affect the rest of the cast’s financial situations.

    • Jasmine November 1, 2017

      Rock is grown and Tyrese is grown. Perhaps Tyrese should follow Rock and Vin Disel’s lead and find some opportunities for himself instead of wining about the work other people are doing.

    • Rvs November 1, 2017

      I think the fast movie was gonna come out earlier but now its delayed bcuz of spin off. I think that probably set the paycheck date back as well

      • Jasmine November 1, 2017

        I get that but since when is a grown man supposed to be sitting around waiting on a paycheck? Movies get pushed back all the time. Nothing new here. Actors and musicians are expected and supposed to have other gigs lined up to make money all the time. Only lazy people sit around waiting for something to take place instead of staying booked up. Look at how the Rock is always booked with his tv shows, acting / producting in movies, and hosting gigs. If Rock can do all that so can Tyrese because unlike Rock, Tyrese can sing too. Seems like Tyres is being lazy here. What happened to touring or putting out some independent music singles to make money off of at least?

  11. Danyboo November 1, 2017

    Sounds like hes being selfish to the rock because he’s been living above his means. The rock is always working he ain’t trying to stand still cause you ain’t no hustler. Instead of going live and recording videos about what other people should do with there lives maybe tyrese you should look ? At the man in the mirror. It’s a cruel world maybe you should invest in yourself.

  12. Tori November 1, 2017

    This isn’t funny but those facial expressions are funny as hell, LMAO. But I understand his situation and I understand his stupidity, at this point he needs to cry and let it out because he won’t get that this isn’t The Rocks problem till he releases those chains of thoughts. But there’s an upside to this! He could definitely start making s** music and selling p***…he’ll sell like crazy because…look at him, f****** gorgeous. I mean after this, the fight for your daughter is pretty much a lost battle because now you look like you’re mentally and financially unstable. Just start selling p***!

  13. Jamie November 1, 2017

    He’s really having some baby boy issues now!

  14. Chris November 1, 2017

    I don’t feel sorry for him. He is always on social media showing off his home and how he has a Starbucks and a Benihana in his backyard and also going to Dubai for “business.” Either he’s lying about being broke or fronting like he has money when he really doesnt. THE rock does not need to help another grown man. Tyrese has been in the game for over 20 years. He needs to Stop blaming other people for his mistakes. It’s not the rocks fault that tyrese can’t get booked. He’s always giving people advise and telling woman how to act and talking about his wealth…but now crying on camera. Boy please! Go pray and work on getting ur daughter back.

  15. Oh November 1, 2017

    Well, from what they led us to believe, is that they are like a family. It is more than just a movie, they have elevated to another level. Clearly Tyrese takes that part serious and this is why he is saying what he is saying about The Rock. It may not be something I agree with 100 percent but I can clearly understand where he is coming from.

    • Caleb November 1, 2017

      But at the end of the day it turned out it really was just a movie, even if it was a very good movie.

  16. RIHANNA & BEYONCÉ November 1, 2017

    He has been crying for help for couple years now, always doing the most on social networks, he is going through mental issues and need help real bad.

    He always acting like he knows everything but sad he needs fixing.

    Hollywood is very deadly and not everyone makes it alive. He needs help.

  17. Jem November 1, 2017

    He dissed the black woman in one of his rants and anytime these coons put us down their karma is cruel. God go with him coz there he have it not even his millionaire and billionaire friends wanna roll with him in his situation. He better go find God and with the foolishness.

  18. Caleb November 1, 2017

    It’s truly sad to see the downfall of such a beloved celebrity. Though honestly he was cancelled when he started talking ish about Black women and saying all that disrespectful s***. Also IF he really did beat that child I can understand why the ex wouldn’t want him around her.

  19. November 1, 2017

    I do wish him the best, whatever is going on it’s sad to see people down, i really hope everything works out for him.

  20. Achooo! November 1, 2017

    These are some trying times. Tyrese is having a psychotic break. His wife need to give him some loving

  21. Teflon Boy November 1, 2017

    Tyrese’ brand has been unravelling for some time down to his reckless use of social media. He is a basic but reliable actor and he is a capable but but mostly unremarkable singer. He’s professional enough to do his job but his relationship with social media has been and continues to be his undoing. This is what has hurt his ability to get booked, his legal woes are a minor story. Lastly, it’s often the most dishonest of parents who act like this.., emotional blackmail targeted at the child.

  22. Jasmine November 1, 2017

    Hahahahahahahahaha If you don’t getcho whining whoa is me, blaming another GROWN A.$$ MAN for your personal issues looking A.$$ on somewhere!!!

  23. ka November 1, 2017

    Damn Tyrese, he is hurting but also embarrassing his daughter she has kids at school looking at her dad loosing it. Tyrese is saying he has no one didn’t he just get married…… hmm divorce already he can’t take anymore hurt, it may not turn out good at all seeing how he is acting? God really need to care for that man.

  24. tru.tea.badgyal.ldn November 2, 2017
