*Days after reports about how “Criminal Minds” star Shemar Moore was robbed of more than $60,000 by a former guest actor on the hit crime show, the actor says he’s counting his blessings and focusing on the good things in life.
The 46-year-old actor took to Instagram to reveal he’s “pushing” forward and focusing on the positive following the release of court documents that detailed the robbery.
“Appreciate who and what is good in your life.. We all have to weather storms from time to time,” he wrote. “Learn lessons.. But find your smile and keep dreaming n pushing … Embrace your blessings!!”
As previously reported, actor Keith Tisdell was convicted of stealing more than $60K from Moore. Tisdell also had a hand in Moore’s charity, Baby Girl LLC. According to ET, an agreement was reached on Aug. in California, in which 42-year-old Tisdell was ordered to pay restitution to Moore’s non-profit, which aims to aid those battling multiple sclerosis, Rolling Out reports.
Shemar reportedly learned of the missing cash during an audit. Tisdell was later arrested in January on suspicion of embezzlement.
Meanwhile, Moore spoke out in a since-deleted Instagram video after his “Criminal Minds” co-star, Thomas Gibson, was fired from the series.
“Lot of birdies chirping out there. The gossip is real,” Us magazine reports Shemar saying in the video. “I hear it. I see it. I’m sure a lot of you do too. So I’ll just say this. I believe that good things happen to good people. Honest people. Hardworking people. Humble people. People who believe in basic goodness. … Treat people how you expect them to treat you.”
Thomas, who has starred as Aaron “Hotch” Hotchner on the hit CBS series since 2005, made headlines for allegedly kicking a writer in the leg over “creative differences.” He was subsequently suspended from the show until last Friday when he was let go.
“I love ‘Criminal Minds’ and have put my heart and soul into it for the last 12 years,” Gibson said in response to his firing. “I had hoped to see it through to the end, but that won’t be possible now. I would just like to say thank you to the writers, producers, actors, our amazing crew, and most importantly, the best fans that a show could ever hope to have.”
