Norma Mitchell Gibson, the estranged wife of singer/actor Tyrese Gibson, has filed court documents asking for an amendment in child support for the couple’s 19-month-old daughter, Shayla Gibson. In addition to child support, Norma is seeking spousal support as well as compensation for her attorney.

According to court documents filed on January 29th, 2009,  Norma currently receives a $5,000 dollar monthly stipend, as well as payments on an apartment and a leased car. Norma, however, claims that the current stipend isn’t enough to take care of her and  Shayla.  At times, Norma alleges, she has to borrow money from friends to pay for groceries and diapers for Shayla. Moreover, Shayla requires $350 outfits that can’t be worn twice per her dad Tyrese’s request.

Norma admits that she is unemployed and has no “employable” skills other than being a  wife and a mother.  Mitchell makes a number of other claims in the court-filed documents. One such claim is that Tyrese has been an absentee-father.

The couple married December 2nd 2007 and filed for divorce 10 months later and have since been separated. Though the couple have a prenuptial agreement, Norma claims that she signed the agreement under “duress and coercion”
