R. Kelly Sends His Condolences to Tyrese Gibson After His Mother’s Death

Tyrese received some comforting words from R. Kelly that caused him to break down.

Taking to Instagram on Friday night, the Fast & Furious star shared a message he received from Kelly. The post featured a screenshot of a text message the disgraced R&B singer sent to Tyrese's mother after she died.

“[...] Hey Lil Bro,” the message began. “My Condolences To You About Mom… She Is In A Better Place With My Mom & They Both Smiling Down On Us.. I Pray For You & Keep It Going On Love. I know it a lot having to deal with this in the limelight but keep ya head up ~Rob~.”

After receiving the message, Tyrese "broke down" for 45 minutes, declaring Kelly the "R&B king."

“Selfishly I wish they could sneak a protools rig and a mic in your jail cell so that you can unload all of those ideas,” he wrote in the caption, “’cause I know you don’t write, all of your hits have been freestyled off the top…… But that’s just me.”

Priscilla Murray, Tyrese's mother, died last month after a battle with pneumonia and COVID-19. The actor/singer announced the tragic news on Instagram.
