"You guys asked me to get off and stay off the internet now that my daughter's legal fees will be paid," the actor writes on Instagram.
Tyrese Gibson thanked his friends Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith for an alleged $5 million donation to stay "afloat" amidst a very public custody battle with his ex-wife, but suggested the Hollywood power couple's generosity came with a stipulation: stay off social media.
"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 on Instagram Sunday. "You’ve guys asked me to get off and stay off the internet now that my daughters legal fees will be paid ! will listen....."
He may have listened, but he doesn't seem to be taking his friends' advice.
Since thanking his famous pals for the donation on the very medium he said he'd stay off of, he's been a busy bee on social media, posting five more times on Instagram, plus four tweets and two Facebook status updates.
TooFab has reached out to Jada Pinkett Smith's representative for confirmation of Gibson's claim, but has not yet heard back.
The 38-year-old actor, best known for "Transformers" and the "Fast and the Furious" franchise, has been undergoing a lengthy legal battle against his ex-wife since she claimed he was abusive to their 10-year-old daughter. Gibson said his ex is just being vindictive because she has yet to come to terms with his new marriage.
The Los Angeles Department for Children and Family Services have dropped Gibson's child abuse allegations.
