Tyrese Attributes Social Media Breakdown To Medicine Prescribed By A Psychiatrist

"If you know me the way I know you do, then you know that something had to be wrong. I was not in my normal mindstate."

Tyrese has had a rough couple of weeks. After his ex-wife Norma Gibson leveled accusations against him that he abused their 10-year-old daughter, the Fast & The Furious actor took to social media to show his love for his child. Everything from flying a banner over his daughter's school and sending a fruit basket and gifts, to standing outside a hotel wearing a black and pink hoodie that read "Shayla Rocks" were all documented events on social media.

However, many began to worry that something may have been wrong with the 38-year-old actor when he appeared on social media crying over potentially losing his daughter. Things then took an odd turn when the Black Rose artist took to Instagram to allege Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith loaned him $5 million to pay for the court fees, a claim a source close to the Smiths quickly denied.

On Saturday (Nov. 11) Tyrese took to social media once again to apologize for his behavior and say that while he was admittedly stressed about the situation surrounding his daughter, it was the medication prescribed  by a psychiatrist that caused his public meltdown.

"If you know me the way I know you do, then you know that something had to be wrong. I was not in my normal mind state," the Transformers actor confessed.

11:11 today here’s my public apology - FYI contrary to false reports and narrative ! don’t have a mental illness, it was meds that was suggested to deal with the trauma of losing my daughter this way.... everything just changed. I want you guys to know that to this day I don’t drink, smoke or on any level do I do drugs......... because of this high stress and very traumatic experience I was advised then ultimately connected with multiple therapist and psychiatrist I had a few private meetings and this particular drug that was suggested although maybe helpful to others had an adverse effect on me and this is the reason I had a complete meltdown online - I’m in the clear now, this is being flushed out of my system and I’m ready to get back to 100% - please don’t chalk this up as “oversharing” a lot of people were effected by what these meds did to me over these last 2 months and this is my public apology a few I will make personally. I’m so very sorry guys - please guys just know again this is not the Singer, actor this is Shayla’s father........... This will NOT compromise my case.... This is transparency and honesty and more of a suggestion, please seek professional opinions when it comes to drugs especially psychiatric meds. We all need to be still and preset in the Lord and he will deal with our fights and realities ”. Praying for you guys, and Pray for me and my family ! Love You TYRESE. Romans 12:2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. #ShaylaRocks.com

Tyrese's apology comes after the Internet has created a plethora of memes using his breakdown as a way to illustrate a joke. Whether anyone believes him has remained to be seen.

'Selena: The Series' Is Headed To Netflix

It's been more than 20 years since Selena Quintanilla's senseless death, but the singer's fans and family have done their part to keep her memory and legacy alive. With the hope of introducing the Grammy-award winner to a new generation, Netflix has ordered a Selena series to live on the streaming platform.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Quintanilla family will produce what is being described as a coming of age story for the model, actress and fashion designer. It's unclear how many episodes will be in the series and if it'll be 30 minutes or an hour.

"Selena will always have a lasting place in music history and we feel great responsibility to do justice to her memory. With this series, viewers will finally get the full history of Selena, our family, and the impact she has had on all of our lives, Selena's sister Suzette Quintanilla said in a statement. "We are excited to partner with Campanario and Netflix to give fans a never-before-seen glimpse at our story and highlight why Selena will remain a legend for generations to come."

Selena began her musical career in the 1980s often performing at festivals in her hometown of Corpus Christi, Texas. She quickly rose to fame and earned a Grammy in 1994 for best Mexican/American album, becoming the first female Tejano singer to do so.

In 1995, Selena was shot and killed by Yolanda Saldivar who managed her fan club after it had been discovered she was embezzling money. Saldivar was found guilty and sentenced to life in prison. The singer's life then made it to the big screen in 1997, with Jennifer Lopez starring in the principal role.

P. Diddy Weighs In On All This "King Of R&B" Talk

Atlanta singer-songwriter Jacquees had the Internet in shambles over the weekend when he declared himself the king of R&B for this generation. The Cash Money artist did earn praise for his debut album 4275, but many felt the boast was premature at best. Tyrese, Tank, Eric Bellinger, and Usher all responded with who they think the true king of rhythm and blues is, but for the rest of the Internet, they pulled up for the laughs.

Sean P.Diddy Combs has maintained a relatively low profile since Kim Porter's death, however on Tuesday (Dec. 11), Diddy interjected to offer a bit of perspective on what it takes to be a king, and more specifically, a king of rhythm and blues.

"Heard we talking about some king sh*t and y'all know I usually mind my business, but R&B is the foundation of my life," Diddy began. "And to be a king, that's some other sh*t. The word king is too loosely thrown around.  Now, I understand the concept that we are all kings, I understand that....but cats giveaway the king thing too early."

Just to backtrack, Mr. Combs has produced some of the 90s most beloved tracks and has earned the right to offer his two cents. Diddy then explained the R&B is also about feeling, not just lyrical small talk.

"Let's get to the topic of R&B: we talking about rhythm and blues, we talking about sharing your soul, and making love through your music. We're talking about adoring a woman. Not just putting it down or talking about how you just want to smash her, I'm talking about adoring her. So in order to be the king of R&B you first gotta start making some R&B, you have to be vulnerable, you have to be speaking about love, you have to be able to affect women in a positive way and your ass has to be able to sing."

In the video, it appears as if Mr. Combs is about to sign off as he's grown tired of the long talk only for him to remember that in order to be the king, you have to be number one and if you're the king of R&B a number one record is...expected.

"Man, and then you have to write a number one record. You've gotta have a whole bunch, a whole bunch of number one records," he concluded.

50 Cent, T.I. And Lil Duval Are Advocating For Cardi B To Take Offset Back

Offset and Cardi B's impending divorce has gained a lot of attention, especially with the two making a very public spectacle of their relationship by changing song lyrics boasting about their expiring nuptials. Leaving a lot of space for public opinion, 50 Cent, Lil Duval, and T.I. have weighed in on their split.

Attempting to coerce the mother-of-one into staying with the 26-year-old, Power's 50 Cent seemingly hopped in the "Bodak Yellow" emcee's comment section, begging her to take the "Bad And Bougie" rapper back.

Lil Duval also left his two cents on Twitter with a follow-up post Instagram. "Life is too short to be leaving ni**as just because they cheated," he wrote. The "Smile" artist playfully tagged the 25-year-old in his next moment of offering unsolicited advice.

T.I. wrote in agreement with comedians comments tagging the "Money" musician in his comment beneath the same Baller Alert repost. Though the brotherhood expressed during Offsets hour in need is surprisingly supportive, Belcalis Marlenis Almanzar, known profession by her stage name seems to have made up her mind.

Recently the five-time Grammy Award nominee had to defend her marital status after headlines swirled around claiming her divorce was a sham. “I wouldn’t put my family in a bad name for no f**king publicity, ‘cause at the end of the day, ten years from now, my daughter, she’s gonna be looking at these type of things and she’s gonna be asking me about these type of things,” Almanzar said.
