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.
