Tyrese isn’t afraid to be vulnerable with his fans. Months after mourning the loss of his mother, the Fast & Furious star is getting candid about where is he mentally. In a lengthy Instagram post, Tyrese admitted he’s still struggling with the death of his Fast & Furious co-star Paul Walker, director John Singleton, songwriter LaShawn Daniels and, of course, his mother who passed away in February. He also confessed his divorce from Samantha Lee has been weighing him down over the past almost two years.
“Paul I promise you I got you bro,” he begins. “#FASTX I think I need more therapy I’m still not over losing my mom, Paul, John Singleton, and Lashawn Daniels. When people pass on? They just leave us all here to deal with it. That’s really painful stuff pray for me y’all….. lately I’ve e been unraveling, painfully processing this all… This divorce has to end she has dragged this all out for a year and 8 months. I just want peace and to be left alone.”
Tyrese, who was recently in the studio making his next album Beautiful Pain, also revealed he had hit a creative roadblock. But deep down, he said knows it’s for a bigger purpose.
“Coming up on 3 weeks since I’ve been able to record my new #BeautifulPain album I have felt PAUSED,” he continued. “God is trying to tell me something so I’ve decided to pause and receive whatever he’s trying to tell me…One thing you will understand in success comes a lot of super random DUMB SHIT and as the world moves on cause of its short attention span we just have to sit here and swim in this shit and most people don’t care to notice.”
Tyrese went on to describe what his “cry for help” looks like with, “God is good I am rejoicing in the goodness of the Lord Jesus Christ who is my Lord and savior but I sometimes wish God were to give me even more clarity beyond what I already know. At times I wish I the likes of my hero Denzel Washington to call me and say come camp out and stay in my guest house for 4 months let’s just talk everyday and pray and watch me FLY!!!!
“But I’m sure that won’t happen for now? I’m just gonna sit here and keep processing Success comes with strife the devil will maliciously orchestrate and attack the weak and vulnerable
Pray for me guys. I just wanna be great.”
Cleary aware the post would draw concern, he noted he wouldn’t be picking up the phone and rather, just wanted prayers.
“I’m clear very clear that people are on their knees right now PRAYING FOR WHAT I ALREADY HAVE,” he concluded. “I wanna open my own MOVIE STUDIO and I wanna figure out how to make #VoltronTravel.com successful I just need help so much potential so so so much potential.
“I hope 3 people who read this book hotels, flights and car rentals. The billionaire with no ideas? Call me I promise you these visions are ideas are endless and of A-GRADE quality. I just wanna be successful beyond movies and music I really pray for my creative breakthroughs I won’t be fully fulfilled until it happens. VoltronTravel.com don’t just look book!”
