Breaking: Court Rules In Tyrese's Child Abuse Case

Is the drama over?

It's been an arduous few weeks for Tyrese, his ex-wife and his 10-year-old daughter. Now, a court has ruled on the child abuse case against him.

Reportedly, his ex-wife, Norma Mitchell Gibson, claimed that back in 2007, while she was pregnant with their child, he burst into their bedroom after midnight, poured water on her and proceeded to punch her eight to nine times all over her body.

She added that the abuse continued following the birth of their daughter Shayla, claiming that he punched her in the head while she was holding the toddler, who was 4 at the time, in an elevator. She also claimed in court documents that on August 19, Shayla was staying with Tyrese when he allegedly “went into a rage, pushed our daughter to the ground, pinned her face down, put his knees on her back, grabbed her hands with one arm and beat her with the other.” She alleged the incident began when Tyrese accused the young girl of “stealing her own piggy bank money that she received for her birthday.”
After weeks of court, a judge has ruled, and according to, "The Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services closed their investigation and will not be seeking any criminal charges against the actor."
This is a huge win for the actor. We hope this is a big step to resolve any issues with his daughter and ex-wife.
