Tyrese’s Ex-Wife Claims He’d Rather Party Than Spend Time With His Daughter

February 2, 2014  |

Move over Usher and Tameka Raymond, Tyrese’s ex-wife seems like she might be able to give that pair a run for their money in terms of bitter celebrity custody battles.

According to TMZ, Tyrese and his ex, Norma Gibson, are in the middle of a child custody dispute, and as part of her ammunition Norma has filed court documents flat out calling Tyrese a bad dad. Referring to Tyrese’s trip to L.A. to visit the crash site of Paul Walker’s death, Norma says her ex-husband should’ve stuck around to spend time with their 6-year-old daughter while he was in town, especially since “Fast & Furious 7” was put on hold. Instead, she claims, 35-year-old Tyrese chose to go “”gallivanting throughout Dubai … staying in expensive hotels … partying on yachts, sky-diving with other movie stars, driving expensive cars, and making special appearances in night clubs,” rather than spend time with his child.

Tyrese, of course, is denying all of this, alleging that his ex is using Paul Walker’s death to shame him. Sources close to him also back up his claim, saying Tyrese went to Dubai on business — business that included four gigs he ironically needed in order to earn money to pay child support.

According to TMZ, things may just be heating up between these two as they will be heading to court later this month to try and convince a court-appointed child evaluator each of them is the better parent. We’ll definitely keep you posted on how that goes.

What do you think about all this?

    When the black man does not show blind obedience to black women, his name becomes N**GGA!!

    FREEDOM!!!It`s only a problem when the black man exercises it!!

    Okay it’s fine to express your opinions on here, but that gives you no right to be rude about it.

  • Shahanna McMillan Ford

    She is just hating. Just because u have child that dont mean u have to stop living your life

  • Lisa from Philly

    These exes need to be careful publicly airing their personal grievances. She ends up sounding like a bitter ex, who wishes she could still enjoy some of the perks of being married to a celeb. I’d bet if she was still with him and was attending these functions with him, there would be no complaints – or second thoughts about having a nanny with them or leaving the little one with a reliable sitter at home. What our exes do with their lives once we split should be their business. It seems like he posts an awful lot about his daughter and how much he loves her. Not that he’s a perfect parent – no one is.

    I don’t know the situation but I am sure Mom spends more time with the kiddo due to the fact that Tyrese has a busy schedule. How about this: you BOTH compromise, quit pointing the dayum finger, and be adults about this. The kiddo is watching and she is soaking everything up like a sponge. The judge should grant joint custody to give Mommy a break so she can find a career and I would make it a requirement that she do so. This will also force Tyrese to adjust his schedule and plan things around his child like all parents do. He can hire private tutors if he is in a movie, take her to doctors appointments, clean up puke if she spews…..things that all of us do on a daily basis. Just grow the frak up, basically. And please judge….make Tyrese stay off of the ‘Twitters’ and his baby mama away from TMZ. Thank you and amen.

    • R Clowers

      Who are you to suggest what a judge does? Who gives you the authority to interfere into someone else life? Who gives you the right to say when and if a mother needs a break or should get a career?You have no right to suggest anything.How about you grow up and stay out of other people’s business.

      • ericamissamerica

        LMAO You’re funny. I could just see your gasket blowing LOL

        • CS

          Bless you Erica for speaking YOUR TRUTH. Don’t ever let anyone dissuade you from speaking your heart. (I used the word dissuade because my guess is that the “guest’ above IS Tyrese.) He is obsessed with social media and reads EVERYTHING that has his name in it.
          Narcissus drowned in the puddle, not because he was so in love with himself, but because he never knew love BEFORE he spotted his own reflection.

  • Rachel

    I really hate when these ratchet so called women always want to go after these fathers who are actually doing all they can for their children. Unfortunately my man goes through the same with his ex. Why ppl????? The important part is that the kid(s) are loved & well taken care of. Now if you really want to discuss deadbeat dads…..talk to me. Now I can give you a story.

    • duh

      She is defending herself in a custody battle. In a custody battle people dony offer roses.

    • thatguy0101

      Well, I thank you for your comment… Because some women think its ALLLLWAYS the mans fault, NO MATTER WHAT… the man does this, the man does that…its allways his fault.

  • Rebbekah

    sad. I believe it, he should be with his daughter more. what reason does the mom have to lie?

    • Arlena Jones

      It might be because she is not a part of the picture anymore? It might be a bitter ex not wanting to move on with her life and let him move on with his. I bet the breakup was not pretty to start with. Don’t use your child as a weapon to get back at her dad. That always has a way of back firing.

    • Dani

      It could be to try to make tyrese a bad guy so she won’t have to give full custody.… since they are going through a custody battle. I hope she isn’t lying and I also hope tyrese isn’t either. It’s so difficult when it comes to these things.

  • R Clowers

    One of the most disturbing things I see is when an “outside” individual judges how a child is being raised.The truth is no one except the two parents & the child involved know the truth. People should mind their own relationships and especially when it comes to parenting because no one except those involved know the truth and no one has the right to judge another person’s parenting skills.

  • tippy t

    Almost every picture I see posted of him is work his daughter he is a good dad and loves that little girl so much his daughters mother might be trying to run the streets and can’t because he was working she needs to get over herself

  • PleaseDOBetter

    Why do these issues always amount to the same thing? What happened to people actually doing what is in the best interest of their children and putting aside their petty behavior? Shame on him if he is not doing right by his child and shame on her if she is lying to the media.

  • KeepingItReal

    It appears that baby momma would rather bash her child’s father than raise a daughter who loves her father and thinks of him as a positive role model.

  • Jordan A. Washington

    I don’t know him, but there might be some truth to what his ex is saying. He seems to post a lot of pictures/statuses on Facebook that have nothing to do with his child/children. Most of his pictures are him out and about.

    • leelee

      So? I didnt know in order to be a good parent you have to constantly post pics of your child and talk about them every five seconds on fb. There is no law tht states you have to do tht in order to b considered a good parent. And how can you know someone just from fb?? You can don’t know what this man does in his personal life smh…

    • Verna SwaggaEnhancer Gordon

      I’m an EXCELLENT MOTHER and I don’t post pictured of my son on social media daily. My son is flourishing into a well rounded person, talented musician and stellar student,.yet he does not consume my posts. Tyrese is an entertainer/businessman so it stands to reason that his posts are more geared to his business…ENTERTAINMENT! I invite you to follow me on IG @vee_elle_gee and see that what a parent posts doesn’t necessarily reflect their parenting skills. Sounds like you and that broad mad y’all didn’t get to go to Dubai.

    • KeepingItReal

      I personally think with this crazy world we live in….minor aged children should NEVER be posted online for strangers to see. When they turn 18…if they want to put their image out into the world…they can do so.

    • Roderica Smith

      I know him personally and he is a great person and father. Don’t believe the media for a second!

    • thatguy0101

      You sound down-right silly as H*ll…and it goes to show you how society social media is controlling you! I agree with @leelee, so he’s a bad father because he doesnt post alot of pictures of his childon social media?!?! If that aint about the stupidest ish I have heard in awhile…smh how old are you?!

  • Ricardia Sharnee’

    Smh The only thing we know is what’s being put out in the media.. Stop judging him. You don’t know him or Kevin Hart.. So please.. Are YOU the best mom you can be? Best father? We’re all in glass houses & cannot afford to throw stones.. -Ricardia Sharnee’ (fb)

    • kiki j

      Well Tyrese is the one always bashing his bm on Twitter and fb. He puts his business out to be bashed.

  • melanie

    Well I do remember him saying on fb tht he was going to dubai for his bd and he was gone turn up,but tht don’t make him be a bad father….now if the kid hadve been with him,thts different story,but damn the MAN has a right to celebrate his bd however he choose……

    • kiki j

      Yeah I’m sure it goes a little deeper than a tri to dubai. The point was he we in the same city as his child and felt his bd was more important than face time with his daughter.

      • MsCam1984 .

        So every vacation u take ur bringing ur kids hell nooooo everybody wants their me time…. he wanted to turn up in Dubai then let him its his day. That makes him bad. Honey my kids father tried to kill me but my kids will never know until they are grown but i will never bash him to his own kids. She is bitter bringing up his birthday trip to make him look bad. She needs to get a job and stop worrying about child support

        • kiki j

          First of all no one said he had to take his kid to Dubai but if your child doesnt live with you or the same city as you it should be a given when you’re in their town you go see them. Secondly he has been bashing his ex wife via Twitter since he started his account. Thirdly, “She needs to get a job and stop worrying about child support” I can’t even express how extremely ignorant you sound.

          • MsCam1984 .

            i’m the ignorant one but your on here constantly posting about someone u never met. How u know if he is a bad father? You don’t but yet u can’t stop running ur mouth. And if he was bashing her as well then that is there issue but don’t point fingers honey…. get a life and some class

            • kiki j

              Why do I comment on people’s lives I don’t know hmm maybe it’s because this is a BLOG and that’s What the comment section is for. It’s for entertainment purposes duh! Do I know if he’s a good dad? Uh no I only care for ENTERTAINMENT PURPOSES duh! It’s my opinion which I’m free to have and based on your comment you should not ever talk about class, you clearly don’t know much about it.

        • Maria

          Stupid comment …….more than ignorant

          • MsCam1984 .

            Please tell me what was so stupid about it

  • kiki j

    This is the same fool who gives marital advice smh. I always said he was a social media dad posting pictures every time he sees his kid every blue moon. Big up to dads like Kevin Hart posting ACTIVE parent pictures of him at the father/daughter dance, pajama party with his kids and pics at the zoo. Also parents like T.I raising his kids to be entrepreneurs. We do have plenty of black men that raise their children but I never believed the Tyrese hype.

    • TT

      Not to mention T.I. goes on class trips with his kids, a couple of weeks ago monica posted a picture of her and TI chaperoning their kids field trip, TI didn’t feel the need to post it on his page because he’s not a father for show

    • CS

      All I can say from reading your posts is this: I LOVE YOUR MOTHER. She did an amazing job raising you to think, to be compassionate, to not criticize. You understand that part of being of service is being able to observe, clearly, and rationally. I applaud your rationality in a forum that so often is filled with incomplete sentences and name calling. THANK YOU for keeping it real, honest, and sincere. This world needs more people like you.
