Norma Gibson battled for her daughter’s custody and got a restraining order against Tyrese

Shayla’s parents Norma and Tyrese Gibson have been extensively involved in the custody battle of their daughter Shayla. Less than a year of marriage, the couple filed for divorce in October 2008. Later, Norma filed a lawsuit at the Los Angeles court for modification of their custody arrangement and change in spousal and child support in early 2009.

According to the court documents, Norma claimed that Tyrese was an absentee father who didn’t support her or their daughter Shayla. Furthermore, she also got a restraining order against Tyrese that kept the singer away from both her and their daughter back in 2017.

Her request for the restraining order against her ex-husband was granted after she accused him of abusing their daughter. In addition to that, she alleged that her ex-husband had hit their daughter “12 to 16” times leading the girl to tell her mother that she couldn’t sit due to pain. Norma said that her daughter told her,  “Mum, Dad beat me so hard that it hurts when I sit down.”

Unfortunately, Tyrese violated the order by hiring a plane to fly a banner over their daughter’s school. As you can guess, Norma Mitchell Gibson filed a police report following the incident.

Additionally, Norma also noted that Tyrese was diagnosed with Bipolar disorder and manic behavior by psychotherapists while she accused him of his abusive behavior toward their daughter.  She also said that her ex-husband was prone to “beat on the people he is in conflict with”. Even when she was pregnant with their daughter, her ex-husband would hit her a number of times, she revealed.

Moreover, Norma’s lawyer told People that she wanted her daughter to have a relationship with her father she deserves so she had wanted Tyrese to receive psychotherapy.

However, the Fast and Furious star told People that all of the allegations were untrue and hurtful and he said that it was disappointing to learn the mother of his child made “gross and false” accusations against him.

He said, “There’s nothing I love more in this world than my daughter and I would never do anything to harm her well-being or happiness. Co-parenting is tough and it’s unfortunate when your partner tries to sabotage the situation with hurtful lies and irrational behavior.”

Ultimately, the LA court gave Shayla’s custody to both her parents in November 2017. It was also reported that Judge Shelly Kaufman found no abuse going on against Shayla. She said that the parents should return to shred custody of their baby girl from January 2018.

Unfortunately, Tyrese himself suffered a financial downfall at the time which was well-documented in the media.
