Tyrese and Ex-Wife Battle Over Visitation With Daughter
Tyrese found himself in a domestic squabble with his ex-wife in Los Angeles Tuesday (Feb. 11). The singer was at Norma Gibson’s house to pick their 6-year-old daughter, Shayla, but was denied.
According to TMZ, Norma didn’t want to let the child go with Tyrese because she was sick. Police had to be called to the residence where they spoke to the ‘Fast & Furious’ actor and, subsequently, he left without his daughter.
Tyrese’s publicist confirmed that he was denied visitation with his daughter, but had a different spin on what really happened.
“Norma Gibson, Tyrese’s ex-wife, denied him a court custodial order with their daughter Shayla on Feb. 11, 2014,” the rep said in a statement to Us Weekly. “Tyrese arrived to pick up Shayla and was denied access by her mother. Mr. Gibson called the police to the scene, and Mrs. Gibson called TMZ.”
“Sadly, this is not the first time this has happened,” the rep added. “This has been an ongoing saga.”
TMZ adds that Tyrese plans to go back to court and ask the judge to hold Norma in contempt and throw her in jail for violating the custody order.
Meanwhile, Tyrese has a special gift for his 6-year-old daughter once he’s able to see her again. Watch the video below.
