After sharing several bizarre Instagram rants, Tyrese Gibson is blaming his recent behavior on antidepressant medication.
The Fast & Furious star, who has been in the midst of a controversial child custody case and a one-sided war of wordsagainst Fast franchise actor Dwayne Johnson, wrote what he called a "public apology" on Saturday.
11:11 today here’s my public apology - everything just changed Medication post 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 already to get back at 100% - please don’t chalk this up as “oversharing” a lot of people were effected by what these meds did to me over these 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 your fights and reality”. Praying for you guys, and Pray for me and my family ! Love You TYRESE.

In a second post, with video, he said: "I just wanted to formally apologize to all of my fans, my wife, my friends, my loved ones and everyone that has gotten a million phone calls after what I now know was some psychiatric meds called Rexulti."
He continued: "Have I been stressed about losing my daughter? Yes. But after seeing several psychiatrists and therapists trying to help me out, one of the psychiatrists suggested some medicine, and it really (messed) me up in a real way."
Rexulti is a medication used to treat depression and schizophrenia, according to its website.
"If you know me, the way I know you do, you knew that something had to be wrong, and I was not in my normal mind state," Tyrese said.
