Tyrese’s Ex Wife Wants Him to Undergo Mental Evaluation
According to a report by TMZ, Tyrese's ex-wife, Norma Gibson, wants him to undergo a mental health evaluation.
On Tuesday (Nov. 14), Gibson's lawyer, Aleen Khanjian, called on the judge to force Tyrese to undergo a psychiatric evaluation. This comes after news that the singer/actor's lawyer dropped off the case and he may be representing himself if he doesn't retain a new one. Specifically, Gibson cited Tyrese's bizarre behavior on social media as her reason for requesting the psych evaluation. Tyrese blamed his breakdown on his depression medication.
"Because of this high stress and very traumatic experience I was advised then ultimately connected with multiple therapist and psychiatrist I had a few private meetings and this particular drug that was suggested although maybe helpful to others had an adverse effect on me and this is the reason I had a complete meltdown online," he wrote in another IG post a few days ago. "I’m in the clear now, this is being flushed out of my system and I’m already to get back at 100%. Please don’t chalk this up as “oversharing” a lot of people were effected by what these meds did to me over these last 2 months and this is my public apology."
Gibson also cited Tyrese's reference that he had a "mental illness," although a formal diagnosis has not been revealed to the court. As of now, the court hasn't ordered a psychological evaluation.
Tyrese's ex wife Norma Gibson is seeking a permanent restraining order against him, claiming that he beat their 10-year-old daughter Shayla.
