Tyrese Gibson Cries in Online Video Over Custody Battle (Video)

Tyrese is looking to get public support or sympathy in his custody fight with former wife, Norma, who recently won a temporary restraining order against him, barring him from seeing his 10-year-old daughter Shayla.

The singer/actor uploaded an emotional video to social media, which sees him filled with tears as he discusses his situation and the lack of support from his rich friends.

In court, Norma claimed Tyrese spanked their daughter so hard she couldn’t sit down and says he was violent towards her throughout their marriage, once punching her several times when she was pregnant with Shayla.

Tyrese insists that Norma is lying, claiming she’s bitter and trying to wreck his life because he re-married earlier this year.

In a three-minute-plus video, which sees him wearing a ‘Shayla ROCKS’ hoodie, Tyrese breaks down as he rambles on about being a “man of God” and pleads, “Don’t take my baby, please don’t take my baby… This is all I got.”

He adds, “I been away from my baby for two months and I just want my baby, and no one’s listening.”

Tyrese did have a monitored visitation with his daughter on Sunday, but it appears spending Halloween without her was too much for the star, who blasts his ex in the video, stating, “I’m at $13,000 a month. What more do you want from me?”

At one point, he stops to consider if the footage he’s shooting will impact the case, adding, “Oh my God, am I doing something illegal by doing this video?”

He ends the emotional outburst by attacking his rich friends for allegedly not supporting him: “Ain’t nobody showing up for me. I’ve got all these millionaire friends… I’ve been there for you, why nobody’s there for me (sic)?”

And he signs off by taking another stab at his ex, claiming her allegations have wrecked his acting career: “Nobody wants to hire me, Norma,” he vents. “Congratulations.”

His ex-wife accused him of violating her temporary protective order in court last week, by sending balloons, gifts and a fruit basket to his daughter’s school and allegedly hiring a plane to fly over the place carrying a banner that read: “No matter what, Daddy loves you Shayla.”

It’s always sad when a child is involved!

In related news, Tyrese once again attacked Duane “The Rock” Johnson taking his money and not having integrity.

He writes on Instagram: “Hello world………. hello loyal fans and loved ones from OUR fast universe…….. I’m sorry to announce that if Dewayne is in Fast9 there will no more Roman Peirce – You mess with family and my daughters survival I mess with yours……… close your eyes dude you’re a “Clown”…… #CandyAssBitchMade All my real one….
