Tyrese: “I Know I Jacked Up My Marriage”

- By Bossip Staff

Tyrese may be representin’ in two summer blockbusters this year, Transformers 2 and G.I. Joe but when it comes to the his personal life, he’s failing miserably.

ESSENCE.COM: And just to switch gears a bit, you went through a rollercoaster ride of your own as a recent divorcee. What has been the most difficult love lesson you’ve had to learn?

TYRESE: My ex-wife and I were together for six or seven years before we married. I learned that sometimes marriage doesn’t work. When you get married you vow to share your life experiences with someone else. If you happen to be as busy as I am, your mind and spirit is all you have and if anything is taking away from that on any level then it might be time to re-evaluate that situation. At the end of the day, you have to love and value yourself and your happiness to walk away sometimes, even if you love that person.

ESSENCE.COM: Have you two remained amicable?

TYRESE: I don’t have anything negative to say about my daughter’s mom. She’s an amazing mother and I wouldn’t have married her if I didn’t think so. I know that I contributed to some of the conflicts that we had. I wish nothing but the best for her and I am focused on being a responsible father to our beautiful daughter.

ESSENCE.COM: Well, your baby girl will always have fond memories of you because you’ve been immortalized on the big screen and causing “Mayhem” in the comic book world.

TYRESE: Yes, my comic book “Mayhem” has already pre-sold 10,000 copies already in one story and it has the comic book world going crazy because if a comic sells 15,000 worldwide that’s consider huge. The energy and momentum is crazy among comic enthusiasts.

It’s so sad to see so many black Hollyweird couples falling apart. Its something in the water out there. SMH

    Nothing to be sorry about-If he wanted the marriage to work he would have found the balance between work and home.

  • Nigga Said

    15,000 comics and its huge? I’m bout to switch careers.

  • soulwoman

    So basically he is saying his career is more important than family. Like someone else said, if he wanted it to work he would’ve tried. It worked for six years while he was busy, so…

    Hollywood couples differ little from us regular folk. The divorce rate ain’t messed up as it is solely because of LA.

  • Miss C

    Wow, they were together that long???

    And he dumps her as soon as his career takes off again. His next piece will be WHITE; as this to make him feel “accepted” in hollywierd. Sad but true; damn idiot!

  • ysr

    its so true, Love vs. Money, you can only choose one



  • sushine20745

    to me..he was never faithful..he concentrated more on his career versus his wife. thats just being selfish and self centered..many hollywood folks are like that.

  • http://bossip kinglion

    tyrese is full of shyt!, you mean 2 tell me he would rather destroy a family and pursue is career?? That is bullshyt!! he is well off already, what an idiot………..i might sound harsh, but i have learned what is in a women’s nature versus my nature!

  • fredo

    Correction! Tyrese is not in G.I Joe..thats the other black dude…

  • MiMi

    At least he was honest about it! But she knew what she was gettin into, so lets not put all the blame on Ty!
    And maybe he should be with me anyway (LOL)!!!!
    I would love a part-time husband right now.

    what was she “getting into”? while you’re so quick to blame the woman please tell us what she got herself into…………………………….

  • eveinthegarden

    It ‘works’ for 7 years unmarried but only 10 months married? What it is is being married requires a greater commitment to HOME than to your job. He probably had it all his way while they dated and then when she started to demand his attention like a wife SHOULD he wasnt ready to sacrifice.

    Selfish people should stay single.

  • Mama Mila

    Totally Agree with eveinthegarden!!!!
    Selfish people….stay single!!!!

  • DDub (I'm pretty much right about everything)


    While there is some truth in your words, the worst thing that could happen to a relationship is a dramatic shift in roles. Right or wrong you can’t let things slide for so long and then think you can crack the whip all of a sudden and think its going to be different from now on. People are creatures of habit.
    Those issues need to be addressed early in the relationship in order to establish a precedent.

  • MISST168

    I agree with eveinthegarden and DDub with both your points. But putting my 2 Cents:
    Marriage is a job on it is own. You mean to tell me that he can work different jobs (acting, singing) and be committed to being the best in those activities, but yet he can’t do the job of a husband. Also he is suppose to be a christian, marriage is a sacred union between husband, wife and God. When you divorce 1 party apart of yourself is divorcing God.

  • actright

    Being busy should not be a reason to divorce, what about Ice-T & his wife, Will & Jada, there are plenty of black hollywood couples out there that put in the work, have crazy busy schedules and make their family work. Marriage made him realize he was no longer single….not to mention he has a huge ego and all the ladies want him. Glad to see his career is back up!!!! Always pulling for the brotha! 🙂
