Watch: Tyrese Gibson Blasts Ex-Wife & Implicates Himself in Marriage Fraud Scheme To Keep Her in the Country

Is anyone still taking Tyrese at his word? If so, why? Are you okay? 

He is clearly still in the midst of sorting out some issues. Like, even if he is telling the truth, now is not the best time to be listening up.

Recent iffy moves include pretending to kidnap a comedian and claiming that a Four Brothers sequel is currently in the works. Not even going to mention the five million dollar thing.

He did insist that his wife wasn’t actually pregnant though? So…we don’t know. 

Now, he is saying that he only married his ex-wife, Norma Gibson, to keep her in the country. The pair were husband and wife from 2007 to 2009. When they met, she was a resident of London. He says that he was motivated to swap “I Dos” because she was pregnant with his baby.

During a recent interview, he dug up some gems. Of his marriage, he said:

“We had an angel. But I married you to keep you in the country. I never married you because we were happily married. You’re from London. I married you because we had a baby on the way and I had to do whatever I had to do so I’m not traveling all the way to London just to spend quality time with my baby. So now you’re running around painting this picture, like we was [sings ‘Here Comes The Bride’], we got married and there was like 7 people there.”

Tyrese was on @rickeysmileymorningshow today spillin’ all the tea!! Go to HotSpotATL.com for the full interview 🐸☕️ #hot1079atl

If it has been a “real” marriage—like the one he has now with Samantha Lee Gibson, presumably—he would have thrown a giant celebratory bash, apparently. Yeah, that sounds correct actually.


“Like, I am the most flashiest, flamboyant dude, other than Floyd Mayweather, there’s nothing that’s low key and quiet. You know that I married her to keep her in the country.”

Um. No comment.
Wonder how this will impact their already-volatile relationship between these two. Norma even accused him of being physically abusive, which led to him being investigated by the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services (this was later closed and no charges were pursued).
Since then, Norma has insisted that he has continued skipping out on visiting Shayla to jet across the world. So, the situation is still pretty ugh-evoking.



However, Tyrese was reportedly granted 50/50 custody of Shayla. 

Why can’t this duo play nice publicly? Just for the sake of their daughter? Sad.
