Fast and Furious Star Says He's "Actually Okay" After Public Meltdown

Just hours after Tyrese Gibson shared an emotional post on Facebook while embroiled in a contentious custody battle over his only child, 10-year-old Shayla, he posted a second video assuring fans that he was doing well.

"Contrary to what some of y'all may believe, I'm actually okay," the 39-year-old actor said in the second video shared Wednesday evening. "And I'm not putting this up to calm people down. If people are having conversations about what's going on in my personal life... my private life has always been private. Do your research. Anybody who's ever been in my life will tell you, I've never seen him cry that way, I've never seen him have a meltdown."

Ladies are our Queens of the Earth..... This is not about Men vs Women.... This is about Men and FATHERS vs LIARS I️ love you...... But like you who always show UP and stand UP for each-other I'm just trying to be a Voice for the unspoken...... The silent protest...... For fully committed and evolved father...... Rather Black, Latino, Asian, Native American, Italian, Dominican or Puerto etc....... rather you have 2 dollars to your name, millionaire, lawyer or the president in the end we all have one thing in common..... None of us as fathers or grandfathers wanna go home and NOT see or have "access" to our angels..... boys make babies real MEN and FATHERS will do whatever it takes to RAISE our angels.................... I️ know I️ know.... this all looks a way..... Just know this.. God is really really UP to something and I️ have already accepted what God has told me to do..............

"I'm not a singer, I'm not an actor, I'm not a producer, I'm not a writer, I'm not a celebrity. I'm a father. Okay? I'm a father, it's a universal thing. So please, ladies, I love y'all. Our angels wouldn't be here if it wasn't for y'all. But this is not about men vs. women. This is men vs. liars."

Gibson has been in and out of court over the custody of his daughter, which provoked a tearful plea, that can only be described as a meltdown.

The Fast and Furious actor took to Facebook on Wednesday to release an almost seven-minute long video, where he talks about this feud with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson before addressing his ex-wife Norma Mitchell Gibson.

"Don't take my baby. This is all I got. Don't take my baby, okay?" Gibson says in the video as he starts sobbing. "I've been away from my baby for two months. I just want my baby and no one's listening cause no one's in the courtroom."


"I'm at $13,000 a month, what more do you want from me?" Gibson says loudly as he starts crying again. "I don't hate you Norma. I don't know why you hate me, but I don't hate you. But you just can't wake up on September 11th and accuse me of something I didn't do!"

In court documents, Norma accused Gibson of abusing their daughter on August 19 alleging the actor "pushed our daughter to the ground, pinned her face down, put his knees on her back, grabbed her hands with one arm and beat her with the other."

Norma and Gibson were married from 2007-2009, and she now claims that her ex-husband was diagnosed with bipolar disorder as well as manic behavior.

On top of the accusations of hitting their daughter, she also alleges that he was prone to "beat on the people he is in conflict with." She also has accused him of hitting her "a number of times in the past including when I was pregnant with our daughter."

"Norma wants Tyrese, her ex-husband, to receive the therapy he needs so that their daughter can have the relationship with her father she deserves. Norma wishes nothing but the best for Tyrese and is willing to support him, through the courts, to become the father he wants to be." Norma's attorney, Khanjian said.


Things weren't always tense between the couple after their divorce. In 2016, Tyrese posted a picture to his Instagram account of the three of them looking pretty happy in the backyard of her home.

"We prayed and made peace on behalf of our daughter...... Seeing the joy that has came over our daughters life and energy brings me to tears every time.......... She's so much more focused in school and her overall energy is just amazing because she doesn't feel torn between 2 parents," he wrote.

Tyrese remarried in a secret wedding on Valentine's Day in 2017 to Samantha Lee, a social worker who fights for children and human trafficking victims. Lee got her Master's in social work from the University of Georgia and is reported to make a comfortable and hefty salary.

The couple is reportedly pregnant with their first child together.

What do you think of his meltdown? Is he okay the way he says he is?
