After her relationship with Tyrese Gibson once again made headlines when the two separated ways amicably and had to go to court to fight for custody of their daughter, Norma Mitchell Gibson attracted media attention.
Relationship With Tyrese Gibson
The marriage between Gibson and Tyrese, which began in 2007, lasted less than a year, and they divorced in 2009. Since then, the media has covered every detail of their acrimonious divorce.
The controversy surrounds Tyrese and Gibson’s custody of their daughter Shayla, who was born in 2007 and is the star of the Fast and the Furious movies.
Battle For Their Daughter’s Custody
When Gibson broke her silence concerning her child’s custody in 2015 and revealed that she had been abused by her ex-husband during their marriage, it brought more attention to the problem.
The story of the couple’s acrimonious split was never far from the front pages. However, the custody drama restarted, and the disagreement surfaced once more. According to MadameNoire, the actor stated that he was afraid that Gibson would take his daughter to another nation without his permission.
Speaking up, Gibson said that she was simply organizing her trip to Israel with her daughter to visit her mother, who resided there, and that she had no desire to take Shayla away from her father.
However, after taking the entire case into account, the court decided in Gibson’s favor.
Additionally, Gibson asserted that it was just another way Tyrese was torturing her, telling Madame Noir,
I just have come to a point where I felt that I really want to have a voice and speak up for myself. It’s been a long time that I have been going through this, and I want to move on and move forward.
In addition, Tyrese admitted on The Rickey Smiley Morning Show that he only married Gibson in order to keep her in the United States, given that Gibson is a British citizen so that he wouldn’t have to travel all the way to England in order to visit his daughter.

Gibson was born in 1981 and spent his early years in London. She is of mixed race and has British nationality; her mother is Israeli. She maintains a low profile on social media because she is a private person. In addition, she keeps her personal information private, with the exception of her connection with Tyrese.
