Tyrese Gibson Breaks Down On Live Video Over Custody Battle, Full Details Inside
If you follow Tyrese Gibson on Instagram, we’re pretty sure that you’ve seen some, if not all, of his recent posts about being kept away from his ten-year-old daughter, Shayla. The legal battle has been going on for quite some time now, and it seems that the veteran actor and singer finally reached his witts end, yesterday morning, as he recorded a series of videos, pouring his heart out during an emotional breakdown.
In the early part of October, a story broke that Gibson was under an investigation by the L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services. According to TMZ, the investigation began after his ex-wife and child’s mother, Norma Mitchell, made a claim that he spanked their daughter, Shayla, so hard that she couldn’t even sit down, twelve to sixteen times, to be exact. Due to those claims, Gibson and Mitchell have been in a lengthy court battle, as Mitchell is now trying to get a permanent restraining order against Gibson. The restraining order will reportedly prohibit Gibson from physically disciplining their child, and she’s also wanting full legal and physical custody. Mitchell says her reasoning for this is because she feared that Gibson would take Shayla to Dubai with him and never come back.
“She’s a lying piece of sh*t. Tyrese is devasted. He’s a good guy, and I will prove that.” Terry Levich Ross, Gibson’s lawyer told TMZ.
While Gibson continues to deny those physical abuse claims, it is said that he did admit to giving her a spanking once on her bottom, which sounds like typical parenting to us. However, even though Mitchell seems adamant in her accusations, Gibson says that Mitchell is bitter because he married someone else and is using this as a revenge tactic.
As you all may know, earlier this year, the 38-year-old married a woman by the name of Samantha Lee. The two have been going strong lately, as he states that she’s been his backbone through all of this. We’ve definitely seen enough cases of the ‘bitter baby mamas’ and ‘jealous ex-wives’. However, for those of us on the outside looking in, we don’t know enough to point the finger at anyone as it stands now. But, what we do know is, Gibson seems extremely torn up about it all. Frankly, who could blame him?
A day after the news went public, Gibson took to Instagram to express his thoughts and, somewhat, clear his name.
Urgent read my full post thank you.. One day we’re going to sit down over tea and laugh about how they tried to turn us on each-other and what they didn’t know is that it only solidified our lifetime #DaddyDaughterBond that will never ever ever be broken…….. Praying for you everyday angel I love you and I’m holding onto every laugh and every moment……. Love and light…… Watch how your father rose above and stayed centered in the middle of this unexpected storm – A set back is merely a set UP for many many amazing things to come…… #ForgiveThemFatherGodForTheyNotKnowWhatTheyDo #Amen I need you to google #ParentingAlienation and #Enmeshment it’s mind blowing how accurate this all is…
A few days ago, Gibson received the chance to see his daughter for the first time in two months. The judge ordered him a supervised visit with the young girl, which took place this past Sunday. The two went for lunch at an In-N-Out, and from the photos released by TMZ, they both looked very happy to see each other.
However, Mitchell’s restraining order case against Gibson is far from over. It will actually continue until a final decision is made. Which is probably why the Tyrese break down was plastered all over social media. In fact, he had a complete meltdown over the legal battle, and, apparently, he wanted the whole world to see it. We’re assuming that these videos were posted via Instagram, but it looks like he deleted them. Obviously, he wasn’t fast enough because the media got hold to them rather quickly.
But, before that, Gibson began by taking shots at Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, again! From what we can see, Johnson agreed to do a Fast & Furious spin-off of the film franchise, and he didn’t tell any of his fellow cast mates. His feud with Johnson has been lingering for a minute, though. He’s made previous posts about his disappointment in Johnson’s decision.
In his first post, yesterday, Gibson states that he’s not mad about Johnson taking the job; he’s more so upset that no one knew. And, also, according to him, due to Johnson’s participation in the spin-off, the ninth installment that they agreed to do will be delayed by a year, which he said would hurt his pockets because he’s needing all of the money that he can get to pay his legal bills.
Father God I see you and I finally get it…………… Life is confusing at times when you’re moving along and your “role” or “purpose” isn’t revealed to you………. Proudly I’m a Capricorn born Dec 30th 1978 Dr King was taken away from us April 4th 1968 and when I found out Dr King WALKED the streets of WATTS during the WATTS RIOTS it changed my life forever!!!!!! The King family it’s random but I just wanna thank you for love and thank you for your sacrifice and thank you for what your mother and “FATHER” selflessly did for us all……….. #VoltronStudiosHollywood coming soon……. I repeat coming soon…. Ok? Take care guys……God bless you….. ps Lee Daniels dude you’re a fellow Capricorn please listen to me don’t you EVER wear your facial hairs like that ever again Ok? And FYI I was never mad at The Rock – I was just mad that he was “pitched” an idea privately and said yes to it without thinking of what I’m dealing with personally I’m almost broke paying legal fees and is doing what we committed to doing for the #FastFans and #FastFamily cause the fast is tradition it’s not just another Movie Fast was created to COUNTER images of racism to counter that WE ARE NOT ONE RACE…… So the rock how does it feel bro?…. going home to your daughter every night…. it’s was 60 days before I seen my baby….. and all I asked you to do “privately” was NOT accept a role that would deeply effect us all……. You are simply NOT the people’s champ….. you are a selfish champ….. I’m almost broke swimming in legal fees CAA tried but couldn’t book me anything cause my ex wife killed my reputation so no one wants to hire me.. It’s not about I know I know I know right?? Says the man on the Forbes list.. Make sure you kiss your 2 daughters when you get home I wish I could but I can’t afford to fight for my baby anymore so they’re likely going to take her away……. Thanks Dewayne see you guys in 2020 and I will not delete this post cause the TRUTH of selfish people in Hollywood needs to be mentioned……………… to this day Dewayne has NOT called me back as u see me crying every 3 hours over my baby know #ShaylaRocks
He then made a another post, confessing that if Johnson is part of the ninth installment, he would be backing out of the project, himself.
Hello world………. hello loyal fans and loved ones from OUR fast universe…….. I’m sorry to announce that if Dewayne is in Fast9 there will no more Roman Peirce – You mess with family and my daughters survival I mess with yours……… close your eyes dude you’re a “Clown”…… #CandyAssBitchMade All my real one…. Men on integrity… my real ones out here stand UP…… folks that GP to the gym and get big naturally #NoJuice #NoOJ spin off huh? Spin off these nuts selfish champ…… pause notice who’s got his arms around my shoulder and who’s standing alone – #OurChildrenMatter
Johnson hasn’t spoken much about the situation. We think it’d be wise for Gibson to follow suit on that one.
Following those posts, right before his court appearance, that’s when the heart-wrenching videos came. Take a look.
While most believe that this could’ve been a publicity stunt or cry for attention, in another post, today, Gibson stands tall in the fact that he’s just trying to fight for his child.
I’m innocent ! repeat I’m innocent ! did nothing to my baby…….. Don’t he get caught up in her monologue she’s been running with this monologue for 11 years………. finally I️ stood up for myself finally ! no longer wanted to live MY Alice in fear of what she might DO or say NEXT!!!!! When you finally fight people wanna fight YOU!!! Visionaries BOLD people of God – ! will get back to entertaining you guys as a entertainer soon…… Right now NOTHING I️ repeat NOTHING ELSE MATTERS BUT MY DAUGHTER……. ! hope you got to kiss your babies last night before cause I️ didn’t……. Take care.. “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition”. – -Steve Jobs- #DaddyDaughterSeason
We strongly believe that this is a rough patch for Gibson and our only hopes that everyone involved in this situation can come to a mutual agreement that works for the better.
We send our deepest prayers out to Tyrese Gibson during this difficult time.
