Original story (11/6/17 ay 10:04 a.m. ET):
The actor was given $5M by the A-list stars to fund his custody battle with his ex-wife, Norma Gibson.
The Fast & Furious actor has been embroiled in a lengthy legal battle after his former spouse sought a permanent restraining order and claimed he was abusive to their 10-year-old daughter Shayla.
And, with his legal costs mounting up, the 38-year-old’s friends have stepped in to help him pay his lawyers bills.
He has now vowed to stay away from social media while the case is still ongoing.
“When we show UP for each-other there's nothing that can't be done I repeat nothing [sic],” he wrote alongside a string of images with Will on Instagram.
"My wife kept the news away from me cause I've been on with lawyers all day but our family and our sister Jada-Pinkett Smith and my brother Will Smith just sent us 5 million dollars to help keep us afloat [sic].”
That’s quite the generous offer!
"You've guys asked me to get off and stay off the Internet now that my daughters legal fees will be paid I will listen [sic]."
The rapper also thanked the former Fresh Prince of Bel Air star and the Girls Trip actress for being there for him and his family.
"The Smiths's and their whole family has always shown up for The Gibson's Uncle Will you're an uncle for real [sic]."
Meanwhile, this comes just after Tyrese revealed he has been forced to pay $13K a month to his ex-wife for child support.
Not to mention, he has made it known he’s disappointed in his friends for not being there for him.
"I've been there for you, why aren't you there for me [sic]?” he said previously.
In other good news for Tyrese, he was told the investigation by the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services would be closed and he wouldn’t face criminal charges.
Good news all around! Now it’s just time to keep quiet on social media, Tyrese!
