Tyrese has asked his fans to come together in prayer for his mother, who is in critical condition.
He wrote a heartfelt caption in an Instagram post that featured his hand over his mother’s hand while she lays in the hospital:
Praying over every breath she takes…Our family needs you like never before…Our beloved mother–she’s all we have…#PrayerWarriors we welcome your most sincere prayers…
The news comes on the cusp of Tyrese’s victory against a woman who tried to take advantage of his ailing mother.
TMZ reported that an author, Cynthia Banks, wrote a book about Tyrese’s mother and her alcoholism. The ‘Black Rose’ artist was not involved in the project and publicly spoke out about the author’s wrongdoing against his family.
Banks then sued Tyrese for defamation. The R&B singer was going to have to cough up $83k dollars, but on Monday it was announced that the case was thrown out.
We can only imagine the incredible stress Tyrese is under–defending his mother in court to standing strong by his mother’s side as she fights through her sickness.
We are definitely praying she recovers quickly.
