Just hours after posting a tear-filled video on Facebook, Tyrese Gibson assures his fans he's doing fine. The "Fate of the Furious" star says he is "OK," but he is still fired up about his battle to see his daughter.

Gibson said in a video posted on Wednesday, "Contrary to what some of y'all may believe, I'm actually OK. And I'm not putting this up to calm people down. If people are having conversations about what's going on in my personal life … my private life has always been private. Do your research. Anybody who's ever been in my life will tell you, I've never seen him cry that way, I've never seen him have a meltdown."

"I'm not a singer, I'm not an actor, I'm not a producer, I'm not a writer, I'm not a celebrity," he continued. "I'm a father, OK? I'm a father, it's a universal thing. So please, ladies, I love y'all. Our angels wouldn't be here if it wasn't for y'all. But this is not about men vs. women. This is men vs. liars."

The actor-singer cried during a rambling Facebook video posted Wednesday and said, "Don't take my baby ... I'm not doing anything illegal." Tyrese said he last saw his 10-year-old daughter Shayla 60 days ago and that he's out a lot of money due to legal fees. He added: "I'm at $13,000 a month. What more do you want from me? I don't hate you Norma. I don't know why you hate me, but I don't hate you. But you just can't wake up on September 11th and accuse me of something I didn't do." Norma Gibson is Tyrese's ex.

People reports that in court documents, Norma accused Tyrese of repeatedly hitting their daughter on Aug. 19. He denied the allegations.

Tyrese also continued to slam Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson in his social media posts. 

Ladies are our Queens of the Earth..... This is not about Men vs Women.... This is about Men and FATHERS vs LIARS I️ love you...... But like you who always show UP and stand UP for each-other I’m just trying to be a Voice for the unspoken...... The silent protest...... For fully committed and evolved father...... Rather Black, Latino, Asian, Native American, Italian, Dominican or Puerto etc....... rather you have 2 dollars to your name, millionaire, lawyer or the president in the end we all have one thing in common..... None of us as fathers or grandfathers wanna go home and NOT see or have “access” to our angels..... boys make babies real MEN and FATHERS will do whatever it takes to RAISE our angels.................... I️ know I️ know.... this all looks a way..... Just know this.. God is really really UP to something and I️ have already accepted what God has told me to do..............
