Another day, another celebrity child custody case. For the past few years, singer/actor Tyrese (real name Tyrese Gibson) and his ex-wife, Norma Gibson, have been battling of the custody of their daughter, Shayla. In 2009, both parents were instructed to share custody, with Tyrese ordered to pay $6,230 per month in child support. Fast forward to 2013, it appears that there’s still some unresolved matter, in terms of the custody of their 5-year-old daughter. Tyrese took to social media to share the latest:

Real MEN and Fathers…. Pray a hard prayer for me this morning from wherever you are. This morning is gonna be a rough one.. #ShaylaDadLove  … On a day of a heavy heart w/ a personal matter I also rejoice in hvng the #1 #ThreeKings album on RnB Billboard and the #3 on the top 200!!

After court he posted:

Today, in California the custody laws are financially set up to make you become a victim of your own success … Today was rough…I won’t give up on my daughter and I refuse to walk away … Enjoy for now…See you soon. Shayla’s Daddy.

There are always three sides to every story, but Tyrese deserves some credit for his desire and willingness to be a part of his daughters life. Daughters definitely need their Dads!
