Tyrese Gibson and his ex-wife Norma Mitchell are engaged in a bitter custody battle for their daughter Shayla. In recent filings Norma has labeled the singer/actor an absentee father. She claims that after Paul Walker’s death shut down the filming of Fast And Furious 7 instead of spending that time with their daughter Tyrese jetted off to Dubai to party with celebs including Will Smith.
Norma Gibson filed court docs claiming Tyrese is a bad dad, who should have stayed in L.A. to spend time with their 6-year-old daughter after Paul Walker’s death … because he had time on his hands since “Fast & Furious 7” was put on hold.
Norma says Tyrese blew off his little girl, choosing instead to go “gallivanting throughout Dubai … staying in expensive hotels … partying on yachts, sky-diving with other movie stars, driving expensive cars, and making special appearances in night clubs.”
But sources close to Tyrese say he’s indignant Norma is using Paul … and he went to Dubai on business. He had 4 gigs and he needed the money — ironically to pay the child support Norma was demanding.
The court battle rages on later this month … when they each try and convince a court-appointed child evaluator who’s good and who’s evil.
Meanwhile, Tyrese posted these pictures showing him and Shayla having a playmate with Vin Diesel and his daughter along with Rev. Run and his daughter.
