Why Will & Jada Pinkett Smith Gave $5 Million to Tyrese

In Tyrese's recent viral video of him sobbing over the custody battle of his daughter and his legal fees, he complained that his "millionaire" friends had not been there for him during his time of need.

However, not everyone has abandoned Tyrese, and on Sunday (05Nov17), he took to Instagram to publicly thank his pals Will and Jada Pinkett Smith for loaning him some much needed funds.

"When we show UP for each other, there's nothing that can't be done!"

Fans learned of the Smiths' kindness and simple request after Tyrese took to the internet to publicly write about it.

For the past few months Tyrese has been very open about the nasty legal battle his is now in with his ex-wife Norma Gibson over their daughter Shayla Gibson. "Who ever this genius kid is just know that your full scholarship to Harvard University will be paid for as soon as my Will Smith Wire comes in..." The Gibson's Uncle Will you're an uncle for real....

So, it's been pretty obvious that Tyrese's mental health deserves attention, and it seems that Will and Jada Smith believe so as well. 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 is now married to Samantha Lee Gibson.

"The Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services closed their investigation and will not be seeking any criminal charges against the actor".

The couple offered their buddy a deal: They'd give him $5 million to cover his legal fees as long as he promised to stay off social media for a while.
