Tyrese Gibson has been given $5 million by Will Smith to help cover legal costs as he continues his battle to see his daughter.

The Fast and the Furious actor has been fighting to see his 10-year-old daughter, Shayla – who he hasn’t seen in two months – due to his ex-wife Norma’s attempts to place a restraining order against him.

Last week Gibson posted a heartbreaking video revealing his rich friends weren’t coming to his aid.

In the video, he explained 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.

And in an attempt to compose himself, he says:

Please don’t take my baby, OK?

During the video, he also said:

There ain’t nobody showing up for me. I’ve got all these millionaire friends, I’ve got billionaire friends. I’ve been there for you, why is nobody there for me.

But it seems like Will Smith, and his wife Jada have come to the rescue, giving Tyrese a casual $5m to help his plight to see his little girl.

Tyrese posted eight photos featuring him and Smith on his Instagram account and wrote a large message of appreciation for the public to see.

He wrote:

When we show UP for each-other there’s nothing that can’t be done I️ repeat nothing.

My wife kept the news away from me cause I’ve been on with lawyers all day but our family and our sister Jada-Pinkett Smith and my brother Will Smith just sent us five million dollars to help keep us afloat.

You’ve guys asked me to get off and stay off the internet now that my daughters legal fees will be paid! Will listen. The Smiths’s [sic] and their whole family has always shown up for The Gibson’s [sic] Uncle Will you’re an uncle for real.

Just three days ago, Tyrese posted a video of him and his daughter, writing:

Soon again…. Shayla You will dance with your father again… Crack your jokes, do your best to inject yourself into this #DaddyDaughter custody situation.

The real MEN and fathers out here know….. it only highlights your OWN insecurities. I wish I had it in me to respond, I normally do I just can’t cause all of my energy and prayers and love and power belongs to SHAYLA…. Cause #ShaylaRocks God bless you….. Have fun guys with your little ones ok?

When you hear their little feet running though the house don’t take it for granted.

It seems the actor is having trouble finding work, which could be why he needs the money, as at the end of his heartfelt video he said:

She wakes up and decides on 11 September, this is what I feel like saying about Tyrese. Nobody wants to hire me, Norma. Congratulations.

Tyrese recently claimed he wouldn’t be starring in Fast and Furious 9 if Dwayne ‘The Rock’ 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 [sic] survival I mess with yours.

Hope it works out for him.
