It looks like Tyrese Gibson is bound to see his daughter once again. The Fast and Furious actor was approved joint custody of Shayla, his 10-year-old daughter. In the meantime, a judge has also denied his ex Norma Gibson’s restraining order request for alleged domestic violence.
The ruling stated that neither one of the parents would be allowed to use any physical punishments with the girl – duh!
In addition, the father has to enroll in parenting classes that will deal with discipline.
Soon after the court decision, the actor took to social media to talk about how relieved he was.
‘Today’s not a win for me, it’s 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. It’s 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.’

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!!!!!

As you may already be aware, the nasty custody battle, as well as the star’s feud with co-star Dwayne Johnson caused Gibson to go on a few bizarre Insta rants recently.
Soon after, he took to the platform again to apologize to his wife and fans for the breakdown.
Are you glad the actor got shared custody of his daughter?
