Tyrese's Money Woes Reportedly Stem From Living Beyond His Means

The entertainer makes $105,686 per month but roughly shells out $107,576 per month.

Tyrese Gibson's emotional breakdown on social media featured a laundry list of troubles like his legal battle regarding his daughter, resulting money troubles. While the entertainer has pointed at everyone from his child's mother to Dwayne Johnson, the culprit might be himself.

On Thursday (Nov. 16) Page Six shared that the actor is overspending nearly every month. Gibson reportedly makes $105,686 per month but shells out $107,576. In his tearful viral clip, the singer said he pays $13,000 in legal fees. His lawyer, who charges $700 an hour, has made $68,055 from Gibson. It was recently reported he's looking to represent himself in his child custody case. He reportedly still owes the lawyer $133,750.

Ty spends $7,500 in child care, $9,744 for groceries and household supplies and $3,112 for clothes per month. Aside from his pricey legal fees, he spends $24,859 a month for maintenance and repair on his home. It's unknown what the other half of the funds go to.

His lavish home includes a Benihana-style resturant that celebrities like Aziz Ansari have fawned over.

Speaking to People in March, Tyrese shared how that he created the resturant, as well as a few other luxury hangouts in his home to accommodate his fellow famous friends.

“With this level of people, they can’t necessarily go to public restaurants in L.A.,” he said. “You can’t eat a piece of salmon with mashed potatoes in a restaurant without feeling like somebody’s filming. So that became the motivation to create this world in my backyard where people could finally feel like they could be around girls and vibe and music and energy.”

Despite people in his pockets, Ty is keeping his head up.

"The first thing you should do this morning is thank God," he said in an Instagram post early Thursday. While quoting a Bible verse, he also included images from his 2006 film, Annapolis. "You didn’t have to grow up and face challenges as the WHOLE WORLD watches and throws stones. Look up to the sky and call on JESUS it’s real."

#SwipeLeft I’m a soldier for God! The truth will always prevail and warrant a standing ovation I didn’t come this far in my life and or career to quit....... I didn’t get this far from lacking determination - I’m being used to highlight the goodness of God and the challenges of navigating through pain....... the hood taught me to hold my head up HIGH and deal with it....... The first thing you should do this morning is thank God you didn’t have to grow up and face challenges as the WHOLE WORLD watches and throws stones......... Look up to the sky and call on JESUS it’s real..... He’s been with me this whole time.... Thank you father God I love you! Romans 12:17-19 As much as it is within your control, forgive and live in peace with everyone. Deuteronomy 20:4 4 For the Lord your God is the one who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to give you victory." 3. 1 Peter 2:1-3 So get rid of every kind of evil, every kind of deception, hypocrisy, jealousy, and every kind of slander. Desire God’s pure word as newborn babies desire milk. Then you will grow in your salvation. Certainly you have tasted that the Lord is good! “The Debt of your struggle will determine the height of your success”... 7. Romans 12:17-19 Don’t pay people back with evil for the evil they do to you. Focus your thoughts on those things that are considered noble. As much as it is possible, live in peace with everyone. Don’t take revenge, dear friends. Instead, let God’s anger take care of it. After all, Scripture says, “I alone have the right to take revenge. I will pay back, says the Lord.” 12. 2 Timothy 4:7-8 I have fought the good fight. I have completed the race. I have kept the faith. The prize that shows I have God’s approval is now waiting for me. The Lord, who is a fair judge, will give me that prize on that day. He will give it not only to me but also to everyone who is eagerly waiting for him to come again.

Nicki Minaj, Tracy Chapman Fail To Reach Settlement In Copyright Lawsuit: Report

Tracy Chapman’s copyright infringement lawsuit against Nicki Minaj is moving forward after the two reportedly failed to reach an agreement during a recent court-ordered mediation.

Chapman is accusing Minaj of unlawfully sampling her song “Baby Can I Hold You” for the track “Sorry.” Minaj reportedly confirmed in court documents that the song never made it to her album because Chapman didn't approve the sample, The Blast reports.

According to the website, the battling sides “couldn’t reach a settlement,” and an agreement is not “imminent.”

Chapman sued Minaj in the fall of 2018. Months earlier, Minaj revealed that Queen's release date hinged on Chapman. “So there’s a record on #Queen that features 1of the greatest rappers of all time,” she tweeted at the time. “Had no clue it sampled the legend #TracyChapman - do I keep my date & lose the record? Or do I lose the record & keep my date?” Minaj also pleaded for Chapman to get in contact with her.

“Sorry” was never officially released, although  Minaj is accused of leaking the song to Funkmaster Flex who debuted it on his radio show.

The "Megatron" rapper denies committing copyright infringement, and reportedly claimed fair use as her defense. Minaj also allegedly argued that Chapman doesn’t even own the copyright, and is asking for the lawsuit to be dismissed.

Iggy Azalea Calls T.I. A “Misogynist” For Saying She Tarnished His Legacy

T.I.'s apparent moment of candor didn't sit well with Iggy Azalea. The Aussie called her former Grand Hustle boss a “huge misogynists” in response to him saying that she stained his legacy.

“Imagine thinking I was his biggest blunder lmaoooooooooooooo. Tip. Sweetie. We have a whole list for you,” she reportedly wrote in a series of tweets that were later deleted.

“The tea I could spill on what bulls**t this is but at the end of the day I think people can see it’s clear he’s salty,” she continued. “He’s a huge misogynist and has never been able to have a conversation with any woman in which he doesn’t speak like a fortune cookie.”

Earlier in the week, T.I. told The Root  that he was “actively looking for another female rapper who can undo the blunder of Iggy Azalea.”

“That is the tarnish of my legacy as far as [being] a [music] executive is concerned," said the Atlanta native. “To me, this is like when Michael Jordan went to play baseball.”

Azalea signed to Grand Hustle in 2011, but severed ties with the imprint around 2015. In 2017, Azalea left Def Jam for neighboring Island Records, before going independent. The “Sally Walker” rapper released her sophomore studio album, In My Defense, over the summer.

Wale Says Record Deals Should Include Mental Health Assistance

Mental health is an issue that record labels should be prioritizing, as Wale explained in an interview with TMZ Live on Friday (Oct. 11). The DMV rapper, who has been open about batting anxiety and depression, and released his Wow That’s Crazy album, during Mental Health Awareness Week, says signing a record deal should come with mental health assistance.

“People live their life for this, and lose their life because of it,” Wale said while discussing the perils of fame. “All of your failures are magnified by 100 because everybody’s watching you.”

The Grammy-nominated recording artist thinks labels should pay for mental health treatment, or have someone on deck to help artists unpack what they’re going through. “Artists generate so much revenue, that’s the least they [labels] can do.”

Wale also noted the difficulty of living life under a microscope, and how coming into money at a young age can be traumatic. “There needs to be a relationship between the mental health agenda and entertainers,” he reiterated. “It doesn’t have to be mandatory but I definitely think they [record labels] should help.”
