The drama between Tyrese and his ex-wife Norma Gibson has been dropped—for now.

The child abuse case against the actor and singer is no more, but there's another plot twist to all of this. Tyrese claims that Will and Jada Pinkett Smith gave him $5 million to help the Furious 7 star with legal fees. The actor took to Instagram to thank the Smiths for their contribution, calling Will an "uncle for real."

Tyrese has been embroiled in a battle with his ex-wife after allegedly beating his 10-year-old daughter, Shayla. The actor and singer has spent much of his time on social media dedicating posts to his daughter and, for a while, it seemed like there would be no end in sight as the drama continued. 

The actor has vowed to stay off social media after fans hinted that he should take a break, but Tyrese has shared a number of posts since. 

According to Page Six, the Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services says it won't seek criminal charges against the actor.
