Tyrese Gets Joint Custody of Daughter After Lengthy Court Battle [PHOTO]
Today is 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 2 parents who are no longer married…… It is a win because she gets to spend equal time with both of her parents in joint legal custody while she continues to grow in a happy and healthy environment – this has always been and will continue to be my priority. I hope all of the fathers feel encouraged by this cause if was the real “Fathers” out there who reached out and kept me encouraged along the way and for that I can’t thank you enough… – For 10 years I have been the best father I could be, all while quietly being on the receiving end of constant toxic false accusations by the mother of my child. And of course all the while being thrusted into unexpected social media storms all while trying to fight for my career and stay afloat financially. Today I am proud that the courts have put an end to Norma’s toxic nonsense, declaring that NONE of her accusations for the last 10 years against me are credible. I did not break any laws; I did not harass anyone; and most important I never engaged in violent or abusive behavior. The physical and emotional violence that Norma publicly accused of were all false and ruled to have no merit, no evidence, and was unsubstantiated in a court of law. I am forever indebted to my attorney Terry Ross who brought my truth to light in supporting me, my wife Samantha and my daughter Shayla and my team who wanted nothing more than for this 10 year nightmare of false claims and accusations to end……. God delivered on his promise that if I stand on my truth and don’t bend he will show up for me – Today is the first day of the rest of my life with MY FAMILY, my FRIENDS, my fans and supporters and my business associates and of course my immediate TEAM – God bless you….. broken but I will heal from this #ShaylaRocks.com go there now please!!!!!
A judge has denied Norma Gibson’s request for a restraining order against ex-husband Tyrese during a hearing on Friday (Nov. 17). The judge also reinstated the singer’s joint custody status with his 10-year-old daughter, Shayla.
Following the proceeding, Tyrese’s rep confirmed with People that the former couple have worked out a visitation agreement for the holidays. Reps for Norma Gibson had no comment on the matter.
The hearing ends Tyrese’s long drawn-out legal battle where he was accused of beating Shayla until she was unable to sit due to the pain. An investigation was soon launched but later closed by the Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services after they found no evidence of abuse.
Tyrese has been documenting his child custody battle on his Instagram page as well as displaying some bizarre behavior on social media. In a seven-minute long tearful video, the singer wept openly while begging Norma not to take Shayla away from him. In response, Tyrese’s ex-wife wants him to undergo a psychological evaluation.
After the judge’s ruling, Tyrese went on Instagram to further explain that his courtroom victory wasn’t a win for him, but rather a “win for our daughter.”
“It is a win because she gets to spend equal time with both of her parents in joint legal custody while she continues to grow in a happy and healthy environment – this has always been and will continue to be my priority,” he wrote.
You can read Tyrese’s two missives about the judge’s decision above and below.
