Singer Tyrese has been in the news A LOT lately, and it hasn’t been for good reasons! Which prompted his public apology over the weekend.
According to Tyrese, the reasoning for his social media meltdown was a combination of stress regarding his daughter Shayla, and prescribed medication he’d been taking for two months.
In a social media post he wrote:
“11:11 today here’s my public apology- FYI contrary to false reports and narrative I don’t have a mental illness, it was meds that was suggested to deal with the trauma of losing my daughter this way… everything just changed.
I want you guys to know that to this day I don’t drink, smoke or on any level do I do drugs… because of this high stress and very traumatic experience I was advised then ultimately connected with multiple therapist and psychiatrist I had a few private meetings and this particular drug that was suggested although maybe helpful to others had an adverse effect on me and this is the reason I had a complete meltdown online- I’m in the clear now, this is being flushed out of my system and I’m ready to get back to 100%- please don’t chalk this up as “oversharing” a lot of people were effected by what these meds did to me over the last 2 months and this is my public apology a few I will make personally. I’m so very sorry guys- please guys just know again this is not the singer, actor, this is Shayla’s father…. This will NOT compromise my case.
This is transparency and honesty and more of a suggestion, please seek professional opinions when it comes to drugs especially psychiatric meds. We all need to be still and preset in the Lord and he will deal with out fights and realities. Praying for you guys, and Pray for me and my family!
Love you, Tyrese.”
He also quoted Romans 12:2
We’ll continue to pray for Tyrese.
