-Tyrese and estranged wife Norma-

Actor/singer Tyrese Gibson wants the mother of his two-year-old daughter to get a job. Tyrese says he has a slew of personal bills- the singer spends $4000 on clothes, $2200 on dining out and $1900 in groceries a month- and can no longer afford to accommodate his estranged wife. Moreover, the star says that he has “already paid $75,000 worth of [Norma's] professional fees and costs for a marriage which lasted less than 10 months.”   The singer says that before he married Norma, they  signed ” a prenuptial agreement which resolved all issues between [them], other than those pertaining to [their] minor child.”

As for the “minor child” in question, a judge awarded Tyrese and his estranged wife joint legal custody of their daughter Shayla in March. According to the ruling, Tyrese’s estranged wife, Norma Mitchell-Gibson, has primary physical custody of their daughter. In a final ruling made on 3/09/09, the singer/actor was ordered to pay Norma child support in the amount of 6,222.00 per month, payable with 1/2 on the first of the month and 1/2 on the 15th.

So what’s next?

Tyrese’s attorney, Mark Vincent Kaplan, has requested that Norma take vocational classes. He says, “Ms. Gibson can and should seek employment and is lawfully employable in the United States at this time.”

The next court hearing in this case will be July 27th.

  1. Hood rat chick! Thats all she is…damn tyrese, i hope the best for you. I ain’t saying she a golddigger, but she ain’t messing with no broke, broke….

  2. Of she feels like she ain’t got nobody here, she should go back home. Tyrese dis take care of his baby. His x-wife on the ather hand he shouldn’t have to give her money. Of she want money to spend on herself or whatever she needs to get up and get a job. She needs to stop thinking of her baby and not herself.

  3. She needs to get a job.Hopefully she puts some of the money he gives her for his baby girl in a savings for her. She needs to stand up on her feet and get her own money.

  4. 6222.00 per month? Are you serious! Honestly, this chick doesn’t have to get a job. $6222.00 per month is enough to pay a mortgage, get a car, pay bills, and still take care of yourself and your child. If that brawd needs more than that then she should go get a job. I wish I did have that much coming in a month and didn’t have to work for it. They should do a reality show with celeb ex baby mamas that complain about their child support amount and have them live off of what some female’s child support amounts are, $300 and $400! Lazy bums.

    • Depending on the life style you have, it would be enough. If you are living a different life style, I would think that she was, it won’t do it. The girl who had the child by Eddie Murphy was awarded 50 Million and she wasn’t even married to him.

      • She was only married to him for 10 months! The courts almost always take this into consideration and they should. They must take into consideration what was earned during the marriage and his earning potential as well as her earning potential. It is unfair to say that someone who works must equally share their earnings with their spouse of 10 months, once they are divorced. And to even think that if he spends thousands on food and clothing that somehow his ex of 10 months deserves similar treatment is wholely unrealistic.

        Big divorce settlements and/or huge alimony payments generally go to those spouses whose spouses are very rich, that’s not Tyrese rich, and who were in the marriage for years not months. The courts take into consideration the length of time for good reasons. While her staying at home for months may have contributed to his quality of life, it was for just 10 months. Will Smith could afford to pay his previous wife alimony. He was reportedly making in excess of 20 mil a film. It is likely he elected to pay her some comfortable amount. It is very doubtful that Tyrese is making that kind of money. I can almost guarantee it.

        Let the wife contribute to the betterment of her lifestyle. But also someone should remind her, she is equally responsible for “giving” her child the best life possible. As most of us know, the “best” life doesn’t mean a “money rich” life.

  5. She is a fine attractive woman and that is what he wanted when he selected her to become the mother of his child. Just as women don’t get pregnant by accident, Men don’t inpregnante by accident. Why pay a nanny to care for the child, while she works, when you have a mother willing and able to care for her own child. Get a job!! Please, she already has a job. She is the mother of his child. Also I say if she is smart she’s working fulltime to find platinum and not sterling silver painted to look like gold. She can’t be a gold digger when the mine appears to be running low. Paying child support in installments, please. That’s a new one. Face,it you get what you ask for and today the sticker shock may scare you. Be certain that you can afford a Bentley before you take it home. Ole boy should have known he could only afford a Toyota. I applaud her for making certain that she found a father and a husband who could afford to take care of his family and responsibility whether he decides to remain in the relationship or not.

    I have a friend who is not a big time celebrity and his payments to his son are approximately $5000.00/month. That’s only 20% of $250, 000 per year. For any young women out there seeking to make certain that your “baby daddy” can afford to take care of you and your child. This would be the annual salary of (dentist, physicians, attorney, small business owner, executives for large corporations. and the list goes on and on. Google it you would be amazed.

    More young African-American women should gold dig if that’s what it takes to have less African-American children living in poverty when ” Baby daddy” leaves and has to be forced to take care of his responsibility.

  6. This is b.s she is a grown woman who knew she didn’t have anything when she came here and still chose to come and marry that man…I have 2 kids and am appauled that she needs 6200 bucks a month to take care of a 2 year old baby. That’s a lie a she is lazy.

  7. Exactly! I agree with him. She is young and able to get a job, go and do it instead of getting every and any money you can from your ex-husband.

  8. I think a lot of people r 4gettin that child support is based on what a person can afford to pay and if Ty can afford $4G’s/month on clothes $2G’s for eatin’ out then homeboy can damn well afford $6G’s for C.S. as for ole girl yeah she may need to get a job if she can’t afford to keep up the previous lifestyle but she signed the pre-nup.

  9. I agree w/her needing to get a job. I think more/all of these women who marry wealthy (but have none of their own) should stop expecting to be set for life just b/c they had a couple of kids or were married for a brief period of time (<10 yrs). These women use marriage/children to boost their economic status. I’m tired of all of them…blacks, whites, and others.

  10. I think there are very good points for both sides of the arguement.

    If you are mentality and physically fit enough to work you should.

    But that being said I think people tend to demonize women when things go wrong in a marrige, eveyone seems to think that women take men to the cleaners in divorce settlements but the people most likely to live near poverty line after a divocre are women and children, whereas men’s earnings increase because they no longer have primary dependants.

    I have no idea what it costs to raise a baby yet I am sure its not cheap.

    I don’t think it will kill her to get a job even a part time job but what tyrese eats that has to cost so much money and spending that much on clothes and nor is it a essential that he must dine out. He’s got some nerve telling her to get a job when he can spend that ridiculous amount of money himself.

    She should make herself useful and set a good work ethic for her daughter and he should stop whining and think about taking some money management classes.

    • the point is he is earning his money. how he spends it is his matter. she is not earning anything and seems to expect that – above and beyond child support – he also support her.

      i am all for a man support his child in a reasonable manner, but too many of these women demand an unreasonable amount, because they don’t only want to feed/clothe their baby. they want to be able to live large AFTER the relationship is over, too.

  11. He is just sour grapes – I agree with a little bit of what everyone is saying, but like the last person said she should do what is fulfilling for her to do in her life not because her ex is telling her to do so… Why is he spending $4000 a month on clothes- the brother better try to save up for the next woman he gets pregnant! Because we all know he will…

    • Tyrese work for his money. So he can spend it however way he wants to. She needs to get a job. He made the money and she sign a pre-nupt agreement and with that said he should take care of his daughter.

      • Tyrese also helped make that baby. Whatever he does and treats that ex wife is what will affect HIS and her child. That baby needs to have the care of a mother staying at home until she is at least 5 years old. Those are important years and he can afford it. He’s a sorry excuse for a father in my opinion. We are aware that it is his money because he sure is letting everybody know that. Ihe one thing I have always admired about Will Smith was that his concern was for his son after his divorce and he was wise enough to know that what happened to his son depended a lot on his ex-wife. I do believe that is one of the reasons he has been so successful in his life, not the only reason, but one of them. It’s called the measure of a man. If Tyrese isn’t careful, he might find himself trying to catch that bus and again to sing about coca cola.

  12. I feel that these mothers get too much to take care of their child/children. It does not take that much money to raise a child, and I am pretty sure any expensive things such as college will be taken care of by the Father because he has the money. These judges need to figure out how much these Mothers need to raise children a month instead of giving money bc the man makes a lot.

  13. Yes, she should most definitely get a job in whichever field she has an interest in and the idea of opening up a business is a good one–but she should do all this because this is what she feels is right for her, not because her ex-hubby is pressuring her. I’m sorry, I don’t have much sympathy for his side. There are multitudes of men in Hollywood helping to support and contribute to their ex-wives. Why is he any different?

    • You cannot say just because there are other men (in Hollywood or not in Hollywood) supporting their exes that Tyrese should be no different. Look at the individual situation and not lump all ex husbands or wives into the same situation; because what is good for the Jones may not be good for the Smiths.

      The fact of the matter is she is his ex, and whether or not he has the money to provide for her isn’t the issue. He did provide while they “were” married and does not have to “now”. As stated previously his child is his only concern now. I applaud him on paying child support because there are a lot of men out there who don’t or won’t.

      In my heart I believe that all women should be independent. When you date a man or marry that man he should add to what you have because he has his own, and if you should separate from him then you still have your own, know how to survive and you don’t leave with less than what you started out with. A divorce cannot strip you of you education. This is key as to why we need to teach our daughters to be independent, set goals, achieve them and find a man that believes in the same; but he loves you enough to share in a common goal together in being husband and wife.

      • IF SHE WAS SMART LIKE MY MOMMA TAUGHT ME. SHE WOULD HAVE BEEN PUTTING SOMETHING BACK FOR A RAINY DAY. SO IF ANYTHING HAPPENED SHE WOULD BE OKAY. I JUST DON’T GET IT, THAT THESE WOMEN DON’T LOOK AFTER THEIR OWN INTEREST IN THESE SITUATIONS.IF YOU MARRY A MAN FOR MONETARY GAINS AT LEAST STACK SOME DOUGH SOMEWHERE TO TAKE IF THE RELATIONSHIP FAILS. NO THAT’S ADVICE TO TAKE TO THE BANK. IMO

      (forgive if this post more than once my pc is acting up!)

  14. Yeah it’s time she needs to get a job. It’s not fair, the man is taking care of his child you are no longer married to him. Take care of yourself.

  15. Renee half of these women are the fools that take care of a man or pay half this and that for him,lol. Get a job for what, it’s called alimony. I don’t see any of you making comments when the white women are getting child support in the amounts of $20,000 or more a month. Guess what? most of them work(modeling,actresses,singers,etc) so why should they get that kind of money? If he can spend $1900 dollars a month on food for just him, then he should pay her bills. Hell his greedy [butt]eating for $1900 a month? Big Blue if you can support 14 kids off of $6000 a month, you must not be buying them a dayum thang. You would have to live in the projects, shop at salvation army and get a heap of foodstamps to feed that many dayum kids. I have one child at home and I spend anywhere from $500 or more on him a month. So tell me how you gonna support 14 extra mouths with $6000?

  16. i think tyrese is full of it, he could provide for ol girl if he wanted to but he doesn’t cause of their problems, i know it’s every person for themselves but i bet he didn’t mind providin for her while she was with him lol i wouldn’t dare move to another country for some random celeb…so i guess its her fault

    • You’ve said a mouthful. He would provide for if they were together…but they are not. She still has to live. She needs to work for whats she wants. Tyrese is undoubtedly taking care of his responsibility which is the daughter thay have in common. Now she needs to take care of her end. She needs to take some responsibility too.

  17. Does she need a job? Definitely.
    But to an extent, I don’t feel all that sorry for Tyrese.
    He worked his way up, he wasn’t born with a silver spoon in his mouth..so why on Earth would he date or marry a woman who didn’t have any means herself?? As a person who came from nothing and made something of himself, you would think that instead of only looking at the superficial aspects, that he would make sure that his potential life partner had something to bring to the table. Light skin, a cute face, and long hair only go so far. Can she help a brotha pay a bill? Can she help on some groceries? If all his fame or fortune were taken away in one day, could a sister help him out? Are you really an asset or a liability? It would help if celebrities would think this way, then maybe some of these young men and women out here in the real world would start thinking like this too.

  18. Ay Yo big up to the women saying she should get a job all pride aside as I Male I find that very attractive in a woman any one of yawl single you r not alone..j/k but real talk big ups!!!!

  19. I think it absolutely ridiculous that a man can bring a woman from another country, promise her the world, take care of all of her needs completely when things are good and then when he’s ready to end everything, he leaves her and the baby stranded… it is unblieveable that all these woman are ok with that man not supporting his wife, when they were married it was ok for him to embellish on their bills and their daughter, however now, after walking out on THEM, HE IS NO LONGER responsible for the life style he created and taught his wife to live. You shouldn’t think that prenuptial agreements mean bye bye baby your on your own, now your homeless without employment, a home to sleep in, food in your refrigerator and clothes on your back.

    • He is paying the $6600 on top of paying for her car, insurance, and rent…Also, what you are saying is correct, he should take care of his “WIFE”, but they are NO LONGER MARRIED…When you become an “Ex”, your child is what matters in the fact. The child still lives in the same house, riding in the same car, and is taken care of with $6600 after all of that…At this point, he is obligated as a husband to take care of her, only his daughter. She needs to get a job…

  20. Although i agree that she should get a job,Part of me don’t sorry for him! he KNEW the type of woman he was marrying, A GOLD DIGGER! but he was thinking with his d***. all men know what type their woman are. She didn’t magically change overnight. He made his bed and NOW he can lie in it.

  21. i’m glad all the women here are intelligent as hell! everyone’s right, she should get a job, it’s not like he’s a deadbeat father and he doesn’t take care of his kid…he’s very proud of his daughter…to try to suck him dry is just dead wrong…i hope she gets a job and i hope the judge helps tyrese in not having to give her anymore money except child support

  22. my cousin is paralyzed from the waist down. if he can work and graduate college, she can get a damn job. what is wrong with these people? she doesnt want to show her daughter that she is a smart woman and can handle her own and make something out of herself? get it together

  23. Let me help her out… Boo Boo, if you are not working then that child needs to be at home with you to cut out daycare expenses – You then need to enroll in College part-time to obtain a Business degree. Since you are a celebrity’s ex-wife and all, I can see how you can feel that it is beneath you to work for someone else…So, you need to stack that extra cheese until you can come up with a nice down payment on a small business loan – then go open up a childrens boutique, a ladies shoe boutique or some sort of speciality store ~ Take his Moolah, Invest it, then you can have funds set up as Incoming Income even AFTER your baby turns 18. You cant always Live for TODAY honey – You have to look towards the Future!

    Whew…Got that off my chest – Now let ME get back to WORK!
    Cause my Ex-Husband cant even give me $200 a month, neverless $6000.
    Honey, you are Blessed!

    • honey, if she was half as clever as u she woulda never got divorced after 8 mnths! or even got married/had a child in the first place.. good advice tho, ladies i hope ur listening

  24. When women (in these cases) request crazy amounts of money per month, I think a law should be set where if worst comes to worst, the guy puts a down payment on (or purchase) a house & car (just enough for the woman to get on her feet). After that, he should only have to pay a “fair” amount of child support, not support her lifestyle! She should be held accountable for maintaining after that. If you can’t continue to walk around in all the name brand latest, OH WELL! The child is the priority.

    Some of these women take it over the top! You should always have a backup plan (educated yourself). Never allow a man to be in full control of everything & when it’s over your helpless. That’s why some of these women get stuck in a relationship where the man treats them like trash because he’s the provider (Gotti’s Way is an example). Or they stay single almost forever because they’re trying to find another man with money to take care of them. GET YOUR OWN!

    I have respect for Rev. Run’s ex wife. If anyone watch the show, she has appeared a few times. She’s remarried to what appears to be an average guy. They pretty much live an average life. Don’t know her past but at least she didn’t waste her life away trying to get another man based soley on his money. It also appears they agreed that Run would raise the children, which is a smart move because he’s more financially stable.

  25. Tyrese’s Coca Cola drinking tail shouldn’t have made a baby with a lazy gold digging woman. Celebrity men need to think before they produce a child into the world. He is stuck with that lady for 16 more years and she doesn’t even have to get out of bed and go to work anywhere. I could support 14 children with $6220 a month!

  26. Im in love I love NeeNees and Angels comment its a recession we aint got time to pay for another grown person who aint disabled or incapable of work its a recession boo you gotta get wit it or leave if you with me…thats just me real talk!!!!

  27. I totally agree. She needs to go and work. This is ridiculous. He should have to care for the child not her and her extra expenses

  28. I agree! I think she should get a job. Just cause you had a job does not mean that you can not work. Girl Bye!!!!!!! $6222! If she needs anything outside of that she should work for it.

    • That money went to the attorneys not his wife. I bet if she had been white, his lawyer would have seen to that he gave her more. She deserves more for being married to him. Didn’t I read on a post at this site that he kicked her in the stomach. Well not too long ago he was riding on a city bus singing about coca cola….be careful what you do to people you might meet them on the way down the ladder.

      • It’s women out here everyday, making on less than 20% of what she gets a month and are doing damn good. I agree with Tyrese attny. she needs to find a skill other than laying on her back.

  29. i think she should work just because her baby daddy is rich he shouldnt have to pay your bills and look after you….what is she disabled and incapable of work…she aint dumb she knew what she was doing when she got with him.

    • My goodness, who will take care of the baby? By the time she pays fees for someone to care for the baby what will be left? Why can’t he cut back on some of his things in the interest of the mother of his child staying at home with the child at such a young age? Man, “Baby Boy” was really his biography. We weren’t celebrities and I stayed at home with my children until they were school age. Those are very important times in a child’s life and he can certainly afford to do that for his child until she is school age. What a jerk!
