Is Tyrese Promising Money Will And Jada Did Not Gift Him?

November 9, 2017  |  

In the past few weeks, Tyrese has outdone himself. And while we’ve reported on him acting up for years now, these past few weeks have been next level. So much so that it’s been hard to keep up on his latest Instagram stunts.

But one of the more recent ones was that Tyrese, or someone near him, took a picture of his telephone screen when Jada Pinkett Smith called him. Later, Tyrese shared that the Hollywood power couple, Will and Jada, gifted him $5 million. What the gift was supposed to be used for is unclear. There were rumors that it was supposed to be an incentive for Tyrese to stay off of social media.

There was another that suggested Tyrese was going to use the money for his legal fees

Last Sunday, on his Instagram, he wrote: “You’ve [sic] guys asked me to get off and stay off the Internet now that my daughters [sic] legal fees will be paid. I will listen.”

Then just yesterday, he shared this video mentioning the money again.


From the very beginning, I questioned this. I know Will and Jada “got it.” But $5 million just for Tyrese seems excessive. Furthermore, if the conditions were for him to stay off of social media, he certainly didn’t abide by those, as he’s been posting consistently since then.

The real problem is, not only did he possibly lie about being gifted the money, he’s gifting this “money,” money he does not and may not ever have to other people, a child specifically.

King Nahh, the motivational speaker came to Tyrese’s defense after a few people, myself included, found fault with Tyrese’s emotional breakdown, recorded for Instagram to see. As a result, Tyrese reached out to the young man and promised to pay his college tuition…as soon as the wire from the Smiths came through.

And the kid (and his father) believed him.

Well, according to TMZ, the Smiths may have never promised him that money in the first place.

Reportedly, a source closely connected to the couple say they did not give Tyrese any money but they are worried about him, believing he is experiencing some sort of breakdown. And we all know no amount of money will help with that.

Thankfully, the child is handling it well.

God bless this whole situation.
