Will and Jada Pinkett Smith didn’t give Tyrese $5 million, despite the star’s claims that they did, according to TMZ.
The singer-songwriter-turned-actor took to Instagram on Sunday (November 5) to announce that the power couple had sent him the generous amount to help with his ongoing legal fees.
“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,” Tyrese wrote.
However, citing sources directly connected to Will and Jada, TMZ reports that the two stars haven’t handed over any money at all.
In his original post, Tyrese claimed that the Smiths’ gesture did come with one request: for him to stay off social media.
“You’ve guys asked me to get off and stay off the Internet now that my daughters legal fees will be paid ! will listen…..,” Tyrese added, although he has continued to be active online in the days since.
