Judge Allows Tyrese’s Ex-Wife To Take Their Daughter To Israel—Even Though He’s Afraid That She May Not Return
Last week, we told you that Tyrese attempted to put a stop to his ex-wife’s vacation to Israel because she plans to bring their daughter along. As previously reported, the singer feared that Norma Gibson would not return 7-year-old Shayla because Norma is actually a citizen of Israel.
Apparently, a judge didn’t see things this way because according to TMZ, Norma has been permitted to take Shayla with her to the Middle East. Earlier today, Tyrese was instructed by the courts to hand over Shayla’s passport to Norma for their trip. The two are scheduled to depart on March 27. They will be gone for two weeks.
Norma has agreed to make Tyrese aware of their itinerary for the trip. She has also made it clear that she has strong ties to Los Angeles and that it’s completely unreasonable for her ex-husband to consider her a flight risk.
Tyrese and Norma tied the knot just 10 months before filing for divorce in 2009. Prior to saying “I do,” the two were together for nearly seven years. It’s unclear why things unraveled the way that they did, but the singer has accepted at least part of the blame for their demise.
“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,” he told Essence in ’09.
Hopefully Norma providing the singer with a play-by-play of the trip will calm the waters. We’re also hoping that he hands over Shayla’s passport without a fight so that this doesn’t become any more difficult than it needs to be.
