Tyrese On 50/50 Custody Ruling: "Today Is a Win for Our Daughter"

He took to Instagram to share his gratitude.

After Tyrese Gibson’s very public meltdown, it seems like things are looking up for him and perhaps more importantly, his daughter.

The actor/musician is now celebrating after being granted 50/50 custody of his 10-year-old daughter. The decision comes after a very hectic court battle with his ex-wife Norma Mitchell Gibson.

The Fast & Furious star took to Instagram this afternoon to post a gallery of photos of himself and his daughter Shayla. In the caption, he explained that the whole situation was a win/win and relayed his thoughts on the difficulty of a young child being torn between parents who are no longer married.

“Today is not a win for me, it is a win for our daughter, Shayla. Who unfortunately has been exposed to tension, private and public embarrassment and growing up and feeling torn between 2 parents who are no longer married......” he wrote in part. “It is a win because she gets to spend equal time with both of her parents in joint legal custody while she continues to grow in a happy and healthy environment – this has always been and will continue to be my priority.”

On Friday, a judge awarded Tyrese joint custody of his daughter, which will begin in January and denied Norma Gibson’s request for a permanent restraining order, according to PEOPLE Magazine. They’ve also reportedly worked out a visitation schedule for the holidays.

It’s been a good weekend for Tyrese. Hopefully this will jumpstart a new life chapter for him. See his Instagram post about the new custody ruling below.
