Tyrese Gibson is being accused of abusing his 12-year-old daughter by his ex-wife Norma Mitchell Gibson, who was married to him between 2007 and 2009. Norma alleges that On August 19th, the actor hit Shayla “between 12 and 16 times,” so much so that Shayla couldn’t sit down. “[He] 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.”

In her declaration obtained by People.com, Norma claims Tyrese was diagnosed with Bipolar disorder as well as manic behavior by three psychotherapists, which he denies, and that she is concerned for her child’s safety. She also claims that the Fast and Furious actor withheld contact between her and Shayla while their daughter stayed with him.


On Wednesday, Tyrese took to Instagram to slam his ex and to deny any of her allegations. He claims that his ex is just “bitter”. He writes, “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 I’m sorry you haven’t been able to find another man since we separated….[sic].”

He continued, “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……[sic]”

As a result of her accusations. Norma has been granted physical and legal custody of Shayla, until the two meet in court on Oct. 2nd. ⠀⠀⠀⠀
