‘Deadbeat Mothers Are Out Here Too:’ Tyrese Takes Child Custody Woes To Social Media
It looks like there is trouble on the horizon for TGT singer Tyrese Gibson and his ex-wife, Norma Mitchell Gibson. The 34-year-old Grammy-nominated vocalist took to both his Twitter and Instagram pages yesterday to vent about what appears to be an icky child custody case. It all started around 10 AM when the singer began soliciting the prayers of “real men and fathers” via Twitter.
His message was later followed up with a bittersweet celebratory tweet about the success of TGT’s latest album.
The “Stay With Me” singer also took to Instagram to vent about California’s child custody laws.
He ended with a preview from his upcoming book, BLACK-ROSE, in which he talks about what it means to be a real parent, as well as offered some words of encouragement for fans.
“Writing my 3rd book called BLACK-ROSE’ here’s a preview.. Thank God she’s too young to understand, Thank God there are still play-dates, friends and fun stuff that she’s always doing that keeps her away from grown up stuff…. My goal as your father is to minimize your exposure to dysfunction cause I can never assume that you are too young to be affected by WHAT’s being said or reading into the energies that they are exposed to,” he begins.
“Its true that Deadbeat dads exist I know… Deadbeat mothers are out here too they’re just not as popular… Then we have those fathers who feel as If they are doing their part cause they are paying for everything…. Kids are as real as it gets… If you DON’t have a healthy and consistent relationship with them it will show and they are too young to hide their true feelings…. (( You Ever reach out to grab a child from someone else’s arms and the child give that “Don’t touch me I don’t know you” look?? Lol,” he continued.
“Through it all keep your love consistent and PRAY that your feelings towards your HIM or HER doesn’t start effecting your relationship and interactions with your child… God is watching every move and monitoring your hearts intentions and it might be a party now…. But in the end money or materialistic things can never buy your childs love… I’ve kept my lips sealed but it’s been rough….. REAL MEN and Fathers and single mothers hold your head I’m praying for you and I hope you continue to do the same for me……”
What do you think of his decision to publicize his child custody drama?
