Tyrese Gibson refuses to give up on his marriage.
Recently, the “Fast & Furious” actor left a comment on a Saturday Instagram post from Tammy Franklin, who celebrated her anniversary with husband Kirk Franklin.
In the message, the “How You Gonna Act Like That” singer — who announced his split from wife Samantha last month — made it known that he wants his partner back.
“Happy Happy Happy Anniversary!!!!!! Magic Magic and more magic.....,” Tyrese wrote. “Dear Samantha this was supposed to be us.... remember the franklins was our marriage GOALS!!!!!!!!!!!! Smiling smiling....... I’m gonna get her back watch me! [ I think ].”
Days before New Year’s, Tyrese and Samantha issued a joint statement announcing their breakup after nearly four years of marriage.
“We have decided to make a statement of a painful and significant development in our lives. After much thought, consideration, and prayer, We unfortunately have made the difficult decision to officially separate & divorce,” it read.
However, the two said they will “remain the best of friends & strong coparents” to their 2-year-old daughter Soraya. Tyrese is also the father of 13-year-old daughter Shayla from a previous relationship.
“We feel incredibly blessed to have found each other and deeply grateful for the 4 years we have been married to each other. Our journey together has been a ride of both ups & downs, but it’s a journey that neither of us would have chosen to take with anyone else. We truly have so much love & respect for each other.”
A day after the announcement, Samantha wrote her estranged husband a touching message in honor of his 42nd birthday.
“Happy Birthdayyyy @tyrese ! Thank you for going half on this angel with me, she is HANDS DOWN the best gift I’ve ever been given,” she wrote. “You saw a mother in me when I truly didn’t see it for myself- a true visionary.”
Over the weekend, Samantha shared a quote from author John Mark Green that read, “You are not the darkness you endured. You are the light that refused to surrender.”
