Tyrese is still battling his ex-wife Norma Gibson for custody of their 11-year-old daughter Shayla, and he claimed that she refuses to work.
Additionally, the actor said Gibson feels “living life” is an actual job, one that requires her to spend a lot of money on babysitting.
All of this came out in new court documents after the former couple sat down for a deposition. During that exchange, Tyrese’s lawyer asked Norma what her occupation was, and she rattled off a few things but didn’t name an employer.
“I am working,” stated Norma. “I am working on my book. I am working on my life. I am running errands.”
But Tyrese’s legal team said Norma is lying, and she thinks that her former husband will pay for everything since he has money and success.
Of course, this time around, Tyrese seems to be handling the custody battle far better than before. Because who could forget the social media meltdown he had a year ago?
What’s also different about this new round of the custody fight is the result, because the judge granted Tyrese joint visitation and denied a permanent restraining order filed by Norma after she accused him of abusing Shayla.
According to The St. Louis American, the joint custody will begin in January of 2019, and Tyrese will be allowed to see his daughter during the holidays this year.
“Friday was 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 two parents who are no longer married,” he wrote on Instagram.
There’s no word at this time if Norma plans to seek employment or not.
