Tyrese Under Investigation For Child Abuse
Tyrese is officially under investigation by the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services after his ex-wife claims he spanked their 10-year-old daughter so badly she was unable to sit down.
Tyrese and Norma Gibson are in a court battle … Norma’s trying to get a permanent restraining order prohibiting him from physically disciplining their kid. She also wants full physical and legal custody. She’s worried Tyrese will take their daughter to Dubai, where he has business ties, and not come back. She also wants Tyrese to take domestic violence courses.
She claims Tyrese “beat” the girl between 12 and 16 times. Tyrese says he only struck her once on her bottom. Tuesday in court, Norma’s attorney said DCFS is now investigating Tyrese.
It’s not uncommon for DCFS to launch an investigation as a precautionary measure.
For his part, Tyrese says Norma is bitter that he married someone else and is trumping up false allegations out of revenge.
Tyrese’s lawyer, Terry Levich Ross, tells TMZ bluntly, “She’s a lying piece of s***. Tyrese is devastated. He’s a good guy and I will prove that.”
Tyrese took to social media last month and penned an open letter to Norma where he apologized for moving on with his life and remarrying.
All I wanna do is co/parent nothing else…… Please…. Stick and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt…… 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…… Sometimes you get married and have kids and things just don’t work out, but I have NEVER wished harm on you……. I was hoping by now you got over what we used to be.
I don’t believe for one second Tyrese abused his daughter.
Hopefully, he and Norma will find a drama-free common ground to co-parent in harmony.
