Tyrese Gibson posted an emotional video hours before appearing in court.
The actor has been fighting to see his daughter, Shayla – he hasn’t seen the 10-year-old in 2 months due to his ex-wife Norma and her attempts to place a restraining order against the actor.
In the harrowing video, Gibson reveals his rich friends aren’t coming to his aid so he can bond with his own child.
He explains how the court proceedings have been kept away from public knowledge, saying:
They’re not able to tell the difference between the good ones and the bad ones, between the criminals and the men of God.
The Muslims, the Jews, the Christians, the men that wake up every day…to focus on one thing.
Tyrese is then seen breaking down in tears.
Attempting to compose himself, he says:
Please don’t take my baby, OK?
Tyrese recently claimed he wouldn’t star in Fast and Furious 9 if Dwayne Johnson did.
Writing on his Instagram, Tyrese said:
Hello world, hello loyal fans and loved ones from OUR fast universe.
I’m sorry to announce that if [Dwayne] is in Fast 9, there will be no more Roman [Pearce]. You mess with family and my daughters survival I mess with yours. [sic]
It appears to be a rough time for the lad. Let’s hope it all works out for the best.
