Tyrese and Shayla at the April 2009 Kids' Choice Awards

Singer Tyrese misses being married. While at his friends Mariah and Nick Cannon’s wedding anniversary party in April, Tyrese realized that he misses “that feeling of just having someone.”

“I miss being married. I missed that feeling of just having someone to call my own. Even though there are lot of random things running around, you still want that solid foundation at home. So I just had a moment when I seen them hitting glasses and toasting…I just had a moment like, ‘Damn.’”

Tyrese filed for divorce from his wife of ten months, Norma Mitchell, last October. He says of his divorce, “I filed for divorce. I’m not perfect. I’ve made some major mistakes in the past and she has too. Sometimes marriages just don’t work out.”

Through all the hardships, Tyrese has made sure to maintain a relationship with his daughter Shayla. He says that his personal conflict with his Ex won’t keep him from being a  father to his daughter.

“There’s gonna be moments where the energy is funky and uncomfortable, but do your part,” Tyrese argues. “There’s a lot of people in your life that you do not necessarily get along with or are not on the same page with, and you’re still in their life. So do what you have to do so that you can do what you want to do, which is spend time with your child.”

  1. Hi there! This post couldn’t be written any better!
    Reading through this post reminds me of my good old room mate!
    He always kept chatting about this. I will forward this write-up to him.
    Fairly certain he will have a good read. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I absolutely love your blog and find the majority of your post’s to be exactly I’m looking for. Do you offer guest writers to write content for you? I wouldn’t mind creating a post or elaborating on many of the subjects you write with regards to here. Again, awesome site!

  3. I’ve been exploring for a little bit for any high-quality articles or blog posts on this kind of area . Exploring in Yahoo I at last stumbled upon this web site. Reading this info So i am happy to convey that I’ve an incredibly good uncanny feeling I discovered just what I needed. I most certainly will make certain to do not forget this web site and give it a glance on a constant basis.

  4. Shayla is a cutie pie, but I’m wondering what eye you guys are looking out of when you say she looks just like him..please she doesn’t look like Tyrese. Forget skin color..she looks like herself not Ty at all. And here we go with the deadbeat Dad business. I see him as one of those guys who won’t pay child support unless its ordered, or he’s taken to jail..
    it looks cute to be married but it takes work.

  5. I like that he says that his ‘personal conflict’ with his ex-wife won’t keep him from being a father to his child… Eddie Murphy could learn something here!

  6. She is a cutie. You never know how two people’s genes are going to play out in their babies. It’s called genetics. But, I am glad he is maintaining a relationship with his little girl. Having a Daddy in your life is priceless. Good for you Tyrese.

  7. Atleast he did admitted that he wasn’t perfect and took partial blame (that shows his real maturity). I am surprised his marriage only lasted 10 months! Oh well, as he said, some marriages just don’t work out–you have to do what’s best for the kids! Much success to him!

    • the words out of the mouths of ur babe are a direct result of you. and if ur son tats up his arms and body, what are u gonna do? disown him? dont u think there are more things for you to worry about?

      • Worry is a bit strong of a word for this. I don’t see more in Tyrese and what he does to his body, More than I see in myself, my son, the economy and things going on in this world. On my down time I enjoy visitng the sites, I just made a comment. And I am sicking with it.

    • You do realize we come in different colors/shades…?

      I don’t know who the mother is, but the daughter can possibly resemble her more.

  8. His daughter is cute, I bought that magazine for my son to read, I think this man is handsome. I just have a personal problem that he took that beautiful black skin GOD gave him flawless. And destroyed it when he put that mess all over his arms. WHY! Who told him that looks good. on the magazine cover he look like a million bucks. They did not show that mess. It would have down graded the cover. How can anyone see beauty in his arms with that black ink on black skin. Please tell me.

    • im sure he look and thought he liked his tats. do you have tats? i assume not. then good for you, but that was ur decision. i have tats, cause that’s my decision. man its a lot of judging on this site.
