Tyrese Gibson’s custody battle involving his daughter, Shaya, is ongoing and is proving to be difficult for the Fast and Furious star. However, recently, the actor learned there is good news coming in his direction.
In a report from TMZ, both sides in the case agreed that Tyrese is allowed to visit his 10-year-old daughter on Sunday, but it must be “monitored.” The restraining order granted by the judge was modified to allow for a six-hour visit.
While this is good news, despite the fact that he isn’t allowed to see his daughter whenever he wants, it won’t stop the intention of Norma Gibson to turn it into a permanent restraining order. According to BET, Tyrese and Shayla haven’t seen each other for over sixty days.
The claims filed by Norma Mitchell stated Tyrese allegedly pinned the girl down and “beat her with her own arm.”
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…….
Norma Mitchell claimed, “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.”
Additionally, the altercation apparently started because the young girl was taking money from her piggy bank which she wasn’t supposed to.
Not long after the incident, a judge granted Norma and the young girl a temporary restraining order for the time being. Tyrese Gibson took to Instagram to defend himself in a post which you can see above.
