Tyrese Gibson Fears His Ex May Kidnap Their Daughter

The Baby Boy star filed legal docs to try to prevent the move.

Tyrese is sweating bullets as he suspects that his ex-wife, Norma Gibson, is planning to take their child away from him permanently by migrating to Israel.


According to TMZ, the Fast & Furious star filed legal docs pleading with a judge to force Norma to stop her Israel vacation with their 7-year-old daughter, Shayla. Norma, who is an Israeli citizen, is legally allowed to stay in the country permanently. However, Gibson's privileges and access would be restricted if she moves there.

Tyrese and his attorneys drafted a contract requiring Norma to return Shayla by a certain date and if she went against their deal, she would lose custody. However, Norma refused to sign. The March 27 trip is already fully planned, and the situation is now in the hands of a family court mediator who will set the final rules. is your No. 1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
