Tyrese’s ex-Wife Accuses Singer of Abuse
In a recent interview with MadameNoire, the ex-wife of R&B singer and actor, Tyrese Gibson accused him of verbally and mentally abusing her.
Tyrese and his ex-wife, Norma Mitchell are currently in the midst of a very messy and drama-filled divorce and the two often battle it out in court over their 7-year-old daughter, Shayla.
Just recently, Tyrese took Norma to court to stop her from going on vacation to Israel with Shayla for fear that she would not return with their daughter.
But despite his efforts to keep Shayla away from Norma, the courts ruled in favor of Norma.
And even though she won this legal battle, Norma is still speaking out about the drama between her and Tyrese.
“I just have come to a point where I felt that I really want to have a voice and speak up for myself,” Norma told MadameNoire. “It’s been a long time that I have been going through this and I just want to move on and move forward.”
She added, “Yes, there was [physical and emotional abuse in my marriage]. Definitely. If you have this conversation with many women, they can tell you the exact same thing. Sometimes it’s so covert that you don’t know it’s happening until it’s happening.”
Norma explained that Tyrese used his money and power to manipulate her and now that she is free from his control, she is creating a platform for other women to speak out that can relate to what she’s going through.
We applaud Norma for speaking out and we hope that she and Tyrese can at least come to a cordial relationship and understanding for the sake of their daughter.
