Director and executive producer Michael Bay is sending a strong message to Tyrese Gibson that he is not a fan. The award winning director recently filed a restraining order against the actor – after Tyrese made it seem they were best of friends.
According to reports, Tyrese Gibson has been going around during the interview circuit proclaiming he and Transformers director Michael Bay are peers and close friends. The only problem is Michael Bay doesn’t want to be associated with Tyrese. Bay and his attorneys sent a cease and desist letter to Tyrese and went as far as hit the singer/actor with a restraining order.
Sources close to the situation say that Bay filed the restraining order when he heard Tyrese was going around telling industry colleagues that they had more of a personal friendship than a business relationship.
Michael Bay’s cousin Susan commented on the matter, stating:
“Michael Bay has a cease and desist on Tyrese, and a restraining order on Tyrese. Michael didn’t like when Tyrese was calling out his name on television, like they were boys. Everywhere Tyrese went, he was calling out Michael’s name. Mike didn’t like that sh*t.”
Did Michael Bay go to far – or has Tyrese taken his name dropping to an unnecessary level?
