ABC/Jeff NeiraTyrese Gibson is asking for forgiveness.
After publicly claiming that Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith had promised him $5 million to “help keep [him] afloat” during his legal and personal drama, Gibson is now apologizing to the Smiths, saying the meds made him do it.
“Me and Jada exchanged text messages today. I just asked them to forgive me,” Tyrese told a reporter from TMZ.
“I took that medicine and we had some real conversations about them helping me out, but it was that medicine that made me put it up on my Instagram.”
Tyrese is referring to Rexulti, a psychiatric medication, which he says caused him to have erratic behavior.
The Fast and Furious actor continued, “A little word of advice for anyone out there, ‘If somebody ever say they gone help you out wait till the money come in before you Instagram about it’. Forgiveness, forgiveness…for all the embarrassment I caused to the Smith family, I apologize. I was not in my right state of mind.”
Tyrese went on to say that he’s now focused on getting back to work — although he’s not interested in mending his relationship with The Rock.
“The Rock ain’t got nothing coming for me, bro,” he said. “I already told people how I feel about that man.”
Tyrese’s apology to the Smiths comes after a judge denied Tyrese’s ex, Norma, her request for a restraining order.
Tyrese was awarded 50/50 custody of their daughter Shayla, but according to Page Six, a judge said that he could only spend time with his daughter with a court-appointed monitor, and that he could not physically punish her.
