Tyrese Gibson Granted 50/50 Custody Of Daughter Shayla
Tyrese is finally out of the woods when it comes to his custody and restraining order case against ex-wife Norma Gibson.
People reports that on Friday afternoon, the judge ruled for Tyrese to have 50/50 joint custody of his daughter, starting in January. S/he also denied his ex-wife Norma’s request for a permanent restraining order. Though the custody order does not take effect until the new year, Tyrese and Norma have worked out a visitation schedule for the holidays that is satisfactory to both sides.
This comes after over a month of online anguish from Tyrese that raised many eyebrows and caused concern. Even Norma herself called for Tyrese to be mentally evaluated, claiming in September that Tyrese had previously been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and manic behavior by three separate psychotherapists — a claim which he denies.
Either way, the actor/singer seems to be in a much better place, given his last
unusually coherent post about the victory that is exoneration from claims of abuse:
Today is not a win for me, it is a win for our daughter, Shayla. Who unfortunately has been exposed to tension, private and public embarrassment and growing up and feeling torn between 2 parents who are no longer married…… It is a win because she gets to spend equal time with both of her parents in joint legal custody while she continues to grow in a happy and healthy environment – this has always been and will continue to be my priority.
I hope all of the fathers feel encouraged by this cause if was the real “Fathers” out there who reached out and kept me encouraged along the way and for that I can’t thank you enough… – For 10 years I have been the best father I could be, all while quietly being on the receiving end of constant toxic false accusations by the mother of my child. And of course all the while being thrusted into unexpected social media storms all while trying to fight for my career and stay afloat financially. Today I am proud that the courts have put an end to Norma’s toxic nonsense, declaring that NONE of her accusations for the last 10 years against me are credible. I did not break any laws; I did not harass anyone; and most important I never engaged in violent or abusive behavior. The physical and emotional violence that Norma publicly accused of were all false and ruled to have no merit, no evidence, and was unsubstantiated in a court of law. I am forever indebted to my attorney Terry Ross who brought my truth to light in supporting me, my wife Samantha and my daughter Shayla and my team who wanted nothing more than for this 10 year nightmare of false claims and accusations to end……. God delivered on his promise that if I stand on my truth and don’t bend he will show up for me – Today is the first day of the rest of my life with MY FAMILY, my FRIENDS, my fans and supporters and my business associates and of course my immediate TEAM –
God bless you….. broken but I will heal from this #ShaylaRocks.com go there now please!!!!! #VoltronTravel.com no other travel site matters go there now
Congratulations to Tyrese! Hopefully, this will calm his anxieties and improve his quality of life overall.
However, it wasn’t all positivity and rainbows. He did have some additional choice words for Norma. More on the flip.
