Tyrese Accused Of Abusing His Daughter
Tyrese‘s ex-wife, Norma Gibson, has filed for an order of protection claiming he beat their 10-year-old daughter, Shayla, so badly that she was unable to sit down.
Here’s the scoop via The Blast:
Norma Gibson claims on August 19, while their 10-year-old daughter was staying with the actor, he allegedly “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.”
She claims the fight started after Tyrese accused his daughter of “stealing her own piggy bank money that she received for her birthday.”
Norma claims the child was beaten again several times after she “begged for mercy, ” and screamed, “I’m sorry, I’m sorry! Please stop! You’re hurting me!”
She says their daughter later told her, “mum, dad beat me so hard that it hurts when I sit down.”
Tyrese’s former wife also says she fears the actor may abduct their kid to Dubai, where he frequently visits, which would prevent her from bringing their “daughter home from a Muslim country.” She claims he has significant influence and power with the royals in Dubai and the United Arab Emirates.
10 days after he allegedly abused Shayla, Tyrese posted a message on Instagram about being emotional when it’s time for her to go back home.
When the news of the abuse allegations and order of protection made headlines, the Fast 8 actor took to social media and penned a lengthy (and shady) letter to his ex-wife accusing her of retaliating against him with false accusations because she’s bitter about him remarrying.
