Will And Jada Pinkett Smith Gives Tyrese $5 Million To Fund Custody Battle With Ex-wife
Tyrese Gibson has revealed that Will Smith gave him a whopping $5 million to help him fund his ongoing custody battle with his ex-wife. The 38-year-old rapper and actor has been engaged in a bitter courtroom feud with ex-wife, Norma Mitchell Gibson, over their 10-year-old daughter, Shayla.
Tyrese, who has supposedly been made ‘virtually unemployable’ following his ex’s claims, prevously complained on social media about the legal fees he’s racked up in the custody battle, saying, ‘I’m at $13,000 a month, what more do you want from me?’
And he also voiced his disappointment over the alleged lack of support from some of his well-heeled ‘millionaire’ and billionaire’ friends asking, ‘I’ve been there for you, why aren’t you there for me?’
Tyrese’s ex-wife, Norma Gibson, previously accused him of child abuse, saying he spanked their only child on multiple occasions. He denied the claims, which sparked an investigation by the L.A. County of Department of Children and Family Services.
