Friends with benefits! Tyrese Gibson reveals celebrity chum Will Smith has given him $5M to help him fund custody battle with ex-wife
It pays to have friends in high places.
And that is certainly the case for Tyrese Gibson after he revealed his superstar chum 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?’
