Hours after publicly announcing his impending divorce from his wife Samantha Gibson, Tyrese shared a new post to explain why he thinks his four-year marriage failed. On Wednesday, Dec. 30, the singer and actor wrote a post on Instagram in which he blamed his failed marriage on a theory suggesting that “Black families and marriages are under attack.”
Alongside a video that captured some of the most memorable highlights of his marriage, Tyrese wrote, “I’ve wrestled with this question … How can we naturally know how to BE something we were never raised by? Most of us were raised in broken homes with NO examples of what being a husband, wife or FATHER is.”
Tyrese also included a public statement to his estranged wife as he also appeared hopeful of possibly reconciling. “I hope you know that I did the very best I could … I truly did,” he wrote. “I pray we leave the door open because the God we serve is a mountains mover and can make a way out of no way.”
He added, “I pray we leave the door open because the God we serve is a mountains mover and can make a way out of no way.”
Tyrese and Samantha tied the knot on Valentine’s Day in 2017. Their only daughter together, Soraya Lee Gibson, was born the following year.
