In an effort to confirm his financial woes, the actor provided evidence that reportedly only pulls in $105,686 every month but his monthly expenses amount to $107,576, which puts him in the red.
According to The Blast, some of his monthly dues include paying $7,500 in childcare for his 10-year-old daughter Shayla, $9,744 in groceries and $14,869 for his home’s mortgage; however, the court documents state the actor-singer has $884,658 in cash and savings, and his property is worth $1,761,250.
In an Instagram video that he shared before a court hearing early this month, Tyrese broke down in tears claiming he spends $13,000 per month in legal fees in his ongoing custody battle with ex-wife, and he pleaded for financial help.
According to the court documents, Tyrese has already paid his attorney $68,055 but still owes $133,750.
He also claimed in a separate Instagram post that Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith gave him $5 million to help out with his expenditures. But the power couple denies this and a source close to the Smiths claim that they are worried about Gibson’s mental health.
Meanwhile, Missy Elliott took to Instagram to offer some financial advice about living within your means.
