Tyrese is now married to Samantha Lee Gibson. In past social media posts, he claimed his ex wife is sour over the new love of his life.
Norma accused him of child abuse, saying he spanked their only child on multiple occasions. He denied the claims, which ended up in an investigation by the L.A. County of Department of Children and Family Services. They closed the case with no findings of child abuse.
