Tyrese Gibson Blames Online Meltdowns on New Medication


Tyrese Gibson Blames Online Meltdowns on New Medication

By  | 

Tyrese has had plenty to say on social media for the last several weeks.

He’s lashed out at The Rock multiple times.

And he’s also had plenty to say about his custody battle with his ex-wife Norma Gibson.

The other day he even claimed that Jada Pinkett-Smith and Will Smith loaned him $5 million to help with his legal fees.

The couple’s rep later told TMZ they didn’t give him any money.

Now Tyrese blames his actions on a new medication.

TMZ writes:

Tyrese has offered an explanation for his erratic behavior in recent weeks — he says a new medication is to blame.

Tyrese claims his online meltdown a couple weeks ago was caused by the drug Rexulti used to treat depression having an adverse effect on him … but he’s off it now and getting back to normal.

The actor says the meds made him do things over the past 2 months that effected a lot of people and he wants them to know he’s sorry.

He also posted the following to Instagram:

11:11 today here’s my public apology – FYI contrary to false reports and narrative ! don’t have a mental illness, it was meds that was suggested to deal with the trauma of losing my daughter this way…. everything just changed Medication post I want you guys to know that to this day I don’t drink, smoke or on any level do I do drugs……… because of this high stress and very traumatic experience I was advised then ultimately connected with multiple therapist and psychiatrist I had a few private meetings and this particular drug that was suggested although maybe helpful to others had an adverse effect on me and this is the reason I had a complete meltdown online – I’m in the clear now, this is being flushed out of my system and I’m already to get back at 100% – please don’t chalk this up as “oversharing” a lot of people were effected by what these meds did to me over these last 2 months and this is my public apology a few I will make personally I’m so very sorry guys – please guys just know again this is not the Singer, actor this is Shayla’s father……….. This will NOT compromise my case…. This is transparency and honesty and more of a suggestion, please seek professional opinions when it comes to drugs especially psychiatric meds. We all need to be still and preset in the Lord and he will deal with your fights and reality”. Praying for you guys, and Pray for me and my family ! Love You TYRESE. Romans 12:2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. #ShaylaRocks.com

    He does have some mental issues. It’s nothing to be ashamed of. He should really be in constant therapy. He’s been a mess for years.

    He was insufferable well before the change in medication. Just saying.

    Tyrese has always been douchey and full of himself. This seems like damage control. I guess he finally realized his actions on the internet were bad for his brand.
