AceShowbiz - Tyrese Gibson has addressed his 2017 erratic behavior. Around 5 years after making false claims about Will Smith and his now-ex-wife Samantha Lee, the "F9" actor admitted that he was "out of his mind" back then due to psych medication.
For the record, the 44-year-old once claimed Will offered him $5 million to cover his legal fees in the custody battle with his ex-wife Samantha. He also revealed at that time his former spouse was pregnant with their second child.
Now, during an appearance on "Sway's Universe", the singer/actor admitted that never talked to the Oscar winner and his now ex-wife Samantha was never pregnant. "Will Smith is gonna give me $5 million? I never even talked to Will Smith. I was out of my mind," he said.
He also blamed the outburst on medically-prescribed Rexulti, which he used to treat his depression. "I travel and I move all the time. I'm used to being away from my baby," he shared. "But to take my baby away for 100 days? Oh, I was f**king miserable."
"So then the psychiatrist says, 'Here's some psych meds that'll help stabilize your mood, because you barely sleep, you're stressed the f**k out, and your first-born was taken away from you,' " he further recalled. "They gave me these psych meds called Rexulti. F**ked me up."
Tyrese went on to note, "You put some s**t like Rexulti in my system, it's going to have the worst adverse effects ever." He added, "So I'm online talking about Will Smith giving me $5 million. I never talked to Will Smith and I still haven't recovered from the damage that I did to him and his family. They didn't deserve them phone calls."
