Tyrese Ginuwine Tank (TGT)

*TMZ seems to know the real story behind the demise of TGT (as we currently know the group).

They’re reporting that the breakup was not Tyrese‘s idea — as Ginuwine has portrayed the situation — but instead, it was Ginuwine who walked away, and it could cost the group millions.

Sources close to TGT tell us the plan was for Tyrese, Ginuwine and Tank to hit the studio early next year to record their second album — but just a few days ago, Ginuwine told them he wanted out of the group.

We’re told he offered no explanation for his departure, and Tyrese and Tank were especially saddened by it because they owe their record label, Atlantic, two more albums — and it wasn’t easy to score that deal.

Those sources say Tyrese only made the announcement public because he and Tank want to recruit a new member ASAP. That’s to keep their deal with Atlantic Records from going bye-bye.

Also, supposedly there’s nothing as far as Ginuwine is concerned. It’s strictly business.
