They say a closed mouth doesn't get fed.

On Wednesday, Tyreserecorded an emotional video where he vented about a number of issues revolving around his current legal battle with ex-wife Norma Gibson. One of the matters the actor touched upon was the need for his millionaire and billionaire friends to offer a helping hand. "There ain't nobody showing up for me," he said. "I've got all these millionaire friends, I've got billionaire friends. I've been there for you, why is nobody there for me?" 

While Tyrese doesn't explicitly explain why he needs them to be there for him, it was clear that he was struggling to cover the ongoing court costs. Luckily, two of those friends in high places came through for him. Earlier today, Tyrese revealed that Will and Jada Pinkett Smith gave him $5 million.

"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," he wrote. "You’ve guys asked me to get off and stay off the Internet now that my daughters legal fees will be paid!" 

With his financial situation taken care of, we probably won't hear from Tyrese in a little while. Or, at least, we hope.
