Tyrese opened up to Dish Nation about his recent social media meltdowns, his public feud with The Rock and his contentious custody battle with his ex-wife.
The 38-year-old spoke honestly about his recent behavior and admitted "a lot of what had happened was self-inflicted" prior to taking his psych meds.
The Fast and Furious star began by shedding light on his custody battle with ex-wife Norma Mitchell over their 10-year-old daughter Shayla. Mitchell had accused him of abusing their daughter.
"My daughter got spanked two times in ten years. The first time I spanked my daughter was because her mama asked me to. The second time I spanked my daughter was because I told her to tell me the truth about something she had done and she didn't. So I spanked her with my right hand on her butt."
He continued: "So when her mom - who I gave her the heads up - she ended up going to court on September 11th and literally accused me of abusing my baby and literally traumatized me forever."
In November, Child Services closed their investigation and said they would not be seeking any criminal charges against the actor.
Tyrese is now happily married to his current wife Samantha Lee and wishes his ex nothing but the best.
"I don't wish no harm on that woman. I look forward to her finding someone, getting in a relationship and moving on with her life, so she could be happy."
The Transformers star also revealed he only married his ex so that she could get her green card.
"Norma, I love you. I appreciate you. We made an angel, but I married you to keep you in the country. I never married you because I was happily married. You're from London."
Tyrese moved on to his online battle with his Fast & Furious co-star The Rock, which stems from the former WWE star going forward with a franchise spin-off that will delay the start of Fast 9 by one year.
Tyrese said he reached out to The Rock privately to try to convince him to not do the spin-off first, but says he never heard from him. Tyrese then disclosed how he had turned down his own spin-off so as to not hold up the production.
"Me and Ludacris got offered a spin-off first. I turned it down. Ludacris wanted to do it. I said, 'We cannot take 16 years of a multi-ethnic cast in a movie on a scale of the Fast & the Furious and decide to make a selfish move and the make the franchise about us.'"
He then spoke the truth on his claim that Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith offered to give him $5 million, which they later refuted.
"Did I have a conversation with Jada Pinkett Smith? Yes. Did I even have one conversation with Will Smith? I did not. But we all know that if you have a conversation with the wife you have a conversation with the husband."
While Tyrese said the A-list couple had offered the money to help with his legal fees and to keep him off the internet, a source claimed the couple had not offered the cash and were "extremely worried" he'd have a mental breakdown.
A week later Tyrese tried to explain his outbursts by saying he had a bad reaction to the drug Rexulti, which is used to treat depression and schizophrenia.
