Given their sordid history, particularly with the dissolution of the super R&B group TGT, I’ve been wondering what Tank and Ginuwine, more Tank than Ginuwine, have to say about Tyrese’s never-ending presence in the headlines.
Well, when Tank appeared on “The Real,” yesterday, I got to find out. While it wouldn’t have been too far-fetched for Tank to say something slick or use the opportunity to throw a jab at his former group member, he kept it classy, likely out of sincere concern. Here’s what he had to say.
“The thing that I’ve always maintained – the last time me and Tyrese did talk we were friends. And you know, the one thing I do know about Tyrese is that he loves his daughter. You know what I mean, and so when that thing kind of unfolded, you know, I thought that that was very unfortunate that he was going through that because I know how much he loves his daughter, and I know how something like that with your baby how it can send you into a space that you’ve probably never been before. You know what I mean? And things can start to unravel. So, for me? He doesn’t need anybody else knocking him down. He needs somebody to support him and build him back up.
Adrienne Houghton: I love that answer.
Tank: So my prayers of love go out to him, you know what I mean, and I’m happy things were ruled in his favor and I hope that he can get back to Tyrese.”
