Child Services Launches Investigation Against Tyrese While Ex Wife Claims He’s Bipolar
Last month, we reported that tensions were rising between Tyrese and his ex wife Norma. While it seemed the two were co-parenting peacefully, they ended up back the news after Norma claimed that their 10-year-old daughter Shayla told her, “Mum, Dad beat me so hard that it hurts when I sit down.”
According to Norma, the beating happened as a result of Shayla taking money out of her piggy bank. She says Tyrese “went into a rage, pushed our daughter to the ground, pinned her face down, put his knees on her back, grabbed her hands with one arm and beat her with the other.”
According to TheJasmineBrand, Norma’s court documents allege that Tyrese struck their daughter between 12-16 times. She also claimed Tyrese has been diagnosed with Bipolar disorder as well as manic behavior by three psychotherapists–a claim which he’s denied.
And, as she told MadameNoire exclusively, Tyrese was verbally and physically abusive to her throughout their marriage. In another interview, Norma said some of the abuse took place when she was pregnant with their daughter.
In response to this August 19 incident with her daughter, she filed for an order of protection which was granted. It kept Tyrese from having contact with either Norma or his daughter until a hearing they had on October 2.
But now, two days later, the Department of Children and Family Services has launched an investigation. In the midst of this, Norma is seeking to make the restraining order one that permanently prohibits him from disciplining their daughter. She is also seeking full physical and legal custody.
Tyrese has yet to respond to the new claims but after the original restraining order was granted, he posted an image of the three together, suggesting that Norma was only hurt now because he’d married another woman.

All I wanna do is co/parent nothing else…… Please…. Stick and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt…… I've only prayed that your heart heals and we live our lives separately and peacefully on behalf of our daughter…… There's someone out here for everybody – Norma I know you can see this, I'm sorry I got re-married, I'm sorry we didn't work out…… Sometimes you get married and have kids and things just don't work out, but I have NEVER wished harm on you……. But I see the attacks just won't stop so I believe this too will pass and God and the courts will reveal the truth….. I want you to know I still love you and wish you the best in all that you're looking to do… I just simply wanna co-parent and raise Shayla to be a respectful, decent, smart angel that I know she is… Paint your picture but God knows the truth…… if I was a bad dad I wouldn't of went from 80/20 to 70/30 to 60/40 to 50/50 custody in my favor…… All of the honorable fathers and parents out here keep fighting the good fight you may embarrassed at times but in the end the kids will always run into the arms of the ones who really has their backs in a great father not because I'm famous with money but because I am – that's my story and I'm sticking to it…. More truths coming soon……. Child custody family issues are the worst…….
