Tyrese Gibson on Winning The Joint Custody of Daughter Against Wife Norma
On winning the custody of her daughter Shayla, Tyrese wrote in a lengthy Instagram caption;
Friday was not a win for me, it is a win for our daughter, Shayla. Who unfortunately has been exposed to tension, private and public embarrassment and growing up and feeling torn between 2 parents who are no longer married,
Tyrese, who got married to second wife Samantha Lee in February this year, hailed his custody agreement as a win for all fathers fighting to remain in their children's lives.
It is a win because she gets to spend equal time with both of her parents in joint legal custody while she continues to grow in a happy and healthy environment - this has always been and will continue to be my priority. Today is the first day of the rest of my life with MY FAMILY, my FRIENDS, my fans and supporters and my business associates and of course my immediate TEAM
The restraining order is now history as it shows a renewed relationship between father and daughter.
