Tyrese celebrated a milestone in a big way
Tyrese has been in the news a lot lately thanks to negative comments he’s made about his fellow cast mates in the Fast & Furious franchise. However, he recently decided to spread some unqualified love and positivity — both to his family and his followers on Instagram.
The singer and actor bought his mother a house to celebrate her remaining sober for 11 years. On the day she received her chip for the milestone, Tyrese surprised her with the home and showed it off on Instagram before she arrived.
“5 bedroom, 3 car garage,” he said while standing in front of the new home. “This is the reason why we work as hard as we do. It’s not about what’s in your bank account. It’s about what you’re doing to make a difference in other people’s lives.“
In the caption of that video, he explained the unique effects that his mother’s alcoholism had had on his life growing up.
“If there’s an award in heaven for forgiveness, having compassion towards those who have broke your heart and let you down over and over and over again I hope God doesn’t skip over me. My mother is gonna pull up in 1 hour and my heart is beating out of my chest. She was an alcoholic for 27 years. Substance abuse killed my childhood. I couldn’t wait to grow up and move out. Been living on my own since I was 17. Today marks 11 years of my mother’s sobriety…and this is how I decided to celebrate her and the victories God’s favor that he has extended over her life.”
In a second video complete with uplifting music, Tyrese says a prayer over the house before slow-mo walking up the driveway. He’s an R&B dude and an actor, so he knows a thing or two about drama.
“Father God I want you to step in and bless this house. I want you to know that in my heart of hearts I came to you vulnerable and humble asking you to remove all memories and levels of resentment and anger that I was carrying for 27 years of alcohol abuse from my mother. Today Father God because of you ripping that taste out of my mamas mouth. My mother has been sober for 11 years as of today October 11th and I just want to say thank you, thank you father god. This is her new house.”
The post is a far cry from his recent online behavior, where he’s relentlessly gone after Fast star Dwanye “The Rock” Johnson. After a series of bizarre rants, Tyrese posted a sarcastic clip of The Rock critiquing Tyrese’s album Black Rose.
“It shouldn’t be called ‘Black Rose,’” said The Rock in the old clip. He continued:
“it should be called ‘big piece of black dog s—t.’ Not even the hard dried up dog s—t … It’s the soft dog s—t. It’s like baby s—t. That’s what the album is like. I never want to hear it again and I’m never going to f—king forgive him for wasting my time. That is time I’ll never get back. It’s like dog s—t is in my ear. Motherf—ker.”
Tyrese posted the video as a seeming justification for his unending feud.
