Tyrese Says Medication Led Him To Falsify His Wife's Pregnancy

The 'Black Rose' artist is clearing the air once again, stating that a drug called Rexulti was the cause for his behavior.

The fourth quarter of Tyrese's 2017 has had its bout with ups and downs. Through a series of posts on Instagram, the world received a front-row view of the R&B singer's legal battles for the shared custody of his 10-year-old daughter and his social media spat with Dwanye "The Rock" Johnson over the future of the Fast & Furious franchise. Now, the Black Rose artist is clearing the air once again, stating that a drug called Rexulti was the cause for his behavior.

To start off his testimony, Tyrese shared that reports of his wife being pregnant are false. "To clear the air cause I'm an open book and got nothing to hide," he wrote. "My wife is NOT pregnant and never was (those meds had me on one)," he wrote.

He then admitted that Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith received an apology from him for stating that the entertainment moguls sent him $5 million to help out with any legal fees or other situations. "And I’ve already mentioned that there was a few talks with the Smiths and those meds made me jump out there and speak on monies that never came in- I’ve already again apologized to them privately and publicly for everything," he said.

Read the full post below.

Let’s get this all off the table a few weeks back while stressed and of course as I embarrassingly spoke on this.. I was advised to use some psych meds called Rexulti and I did and did some really stupid things publicly and privately that will take me a while to recover from. To clear the air cause I’m an open book and got nothing to hide. My wife is NOT pregnant and never was (those meds had me on one) I owe no one any money on any level matter of fact I just took care of both of my lawyers fully 108k for my lawyer and almost 20k for Shaylas lawyer. I could never give what I don’t have. Smart folks do the math! And I’ve already mentioned that there was a few talks with the Smiths and those meds made me jump out there and speak on monies that never came in- I’ve already again apologized to them privately and publicly for everything. I’m traveling cause I can afford to, and I’m not out here hosting parties ( cause you haven’t seen me post about any lol ) I’m out here handling business long awaited Business! #VoltronBusiness After being 100% exonerated my name is cleared of 10 years of lies and allegations that I’m very happy to move away from. it’s that I have a Movie/ Documentary coming from the moment it all happened I hired a camera crew to follow me around and capture every moment. I apologize again for what happened privately and publicly I know the jokes have been flying and will continue to fly and I’m ok with it I’m a big boy with Thick skin. NO one I repeat NO one has flown me around, I’ve arranged and made these moves myself.. That “Fast” bag would of been nice of course but that’s life right? The real fathers and hustlers understand that it’s whatever it takes to get shit done. feel free to take my words and pick them all apart that’s MY story and my TRUTH and that will never change.. Again I apologize to those of you that I’ve let down from the “way” this all looks but we live and learn and I’ve learned a LOT.. For my so called loved ones who went out of their to step on me while I was Down. I know exactly who you are... and I seen everything- I love You Too. This is my last post about the past. Let’s move on shall we? #DaddyDaughterSeason #Capricorn

Lizzo Sued For Defamation By Postmates Driver She Accused Of Stealing Her Food

A former Postmates delivery driver is suing Lizzo for defamation and intentional infliction of emotional distress, two months after the “Truth Hurts” singer put her on blast over a food delivery mix-up.

According to TMZ, Tiffany Wells claims that she received threats, fears for her safety and has been battling stress and anxiety since the incident. Wells claims that while she no longer works for Postdates she remains subject to being humiliated and ridiculed.

In September, Lizzo blasted Wells on Twitter when her food delivery never showed up to her Boston hotel. She tweeted out a photo of Wells and accused her of stealing the food. “She lucky I don’t fight no more,” Lizzo joked.

As it turns out, Wells was actually in the hotel but left because she couldn’t get a hold of Lizzo. Postmates delivery drivers are allowed to leave a location if they can’t get in touch with the customer within a certain amount of time.

Lizzo received backlash for publicly shaming Wells. She later deleted the tweet and apologized. “I apologize for putting that girl on blast. I understand that I have a large following and that there were so many variables that could’ve put her in danger,” she tweeted at the time. “Imma [sic] really be more responsible with my use of social media and check my petty and my pride at the door.”

Lil Nas X Debuts On Forbes’ List Of Top-Earning Country Music Acts

It’s been a good year for Lil Nas X. The 20-year-old’s record breaking “Old Town Road” single helped him make it on the Forbes list of Top Earning Country Acts of 2019.

With an estimated $14 million in income (before taxes), Nas X debuted at No. 18 on the list ahead of Miranda Lambart, Lady Antebellum and Rascal Flats. Country star Luke Bryan topped the list with $42.5 million followed by Zac Brown Band, Keith Urban and Kenny Chesney rounding out the Top 5.

Aside from being the youngest on the roster, Nas X is the only black artist and the only openly gay artist to make the Forbes’ Country Music list.

With a record 19 weeks on the Billboard singles charts, “Old Town Road”  became the longest No. 1 single in history and the first single to earn a diamond certification from the Recording Academy while simultaneously topping the charts.

Earlier in the week, the Atlanta native made history with his win at the CMA Awards and was recently spotlighted in TIME magazine's Next 100 list of influencers.

Naturi Naughton Responds To 50 Cent Targeting Her On Social Media

Naturi Naughton refuses to let 50 Cent get her “out of character.” A week after he apologized for making fun of her hair on social media, 50 Cent posted yet another meme taunting Naughton on Twitter on Wednesday (Nov. 13).

The G-Unit honcho, whose Instagram account was suspended earlier that day, tweeted a meme of Naughton which featured a photo taken during the Power season six mid-season finale screening in New York last month. The tweet went viral but most of the comments were blasting 50 for repeatedly targeting Naughton.

You're disgusting for this.

Naughton hit back on social media on Thursday (Nov. 14). “There’s so much I wanna say but…You don’t have an Instagram account so why waste my characters or come out of my CHARACTER,” she wrote on Instagram next to a tweet that read, “Did we have a fight and I not know about it?”

Though 50 Cent has a reputation for social media bullying, many felt that he crossed the line with Naughton, given the power dynamic. As executive producer of Power, the Queens native is Naughton’s boss. He has yet to publicly apologize again but let’s hope that the 46-year-old rapper is done bothering Naughton.
