*TMZ caught up with singer Tank at LAX and asked him for an update on his R&B supergroup TGT, which consists of himself, singers Tyrese Gibson and Ginuwine.

TGT is named after the first letter of each of the trio’s names. Despite being together since its formation in 2007, the guys didn’t released their debut album until August 2013 titled “Three Kings” on Atlantic Records. It would be their last album, as Tyrese announced the group’s demise in December, saying they would be moving on without Ginuwine.

It’s an interesting twist … Tank tells TMZ’s paps that Tyrese is actually to blame for the group calling it quits because he wanted too much money. A rep for Tyrese didn’t deny money was behind the breakup, but did note that the group’s money was never split equally because Tyrese is the bigger star, therefore – he deserved more.

In 2001, following Ginuwine’s successful tour, Tank released his debut album “Force of Nature,” which spawned the R&B Top Ten single “Maybe I Deserve”. In 2002, he dropped his second album “One Man,” and his third solo album entitled “Sex, Love & Pain” was released in May 2007. “Now or Never” was Tank’s fourth studio album in 2010, and two years later he gifted fans with his fifth studio album, “This Is How I Feel.”

Last year, Tyrese released his sixth and final studio album, “Black Rose.” It debuted at number 1 on the Billboard 200, with first-week sales of 77,000 copies, making it Gibson’s first number one album of his career.

Meanwhile, Tyrese took to Instagram on Monday to blast Chris Rock’s monologue at the 88th annual Academy Awards, saying that Rock really “f**ked” up his mood for dissing Jada Pinkett Smith’s decision to boycott the event.

“Jada boycotting the Oscars is like me boycotting Rihanna’s panties. I wasn’t invited,” the comedian said.

“Did you really use your stage to tear down and diminish one of the strongest most fearless black women in this town as the world watched,” Gibson wrote. “Jokes are just jokes right? Not when someone is trying to affect change… Not when someone is willing to put it all on the line to affect change for our daughters and sons of the future…”

We happen to agree with Tyrese on that point. Bad move, Chris.

What are your thoughts about his reaction to Rock’s Jada diss?
