Report: Tyrese Hospitalized Following Child Abuse Hearing

It has been a rough week for the actor.

Published October 27, 2017

It has been an intense few days for Tyrese Gibson. Him and his baby's mother have been battling it out in court over claims of abuse. There have been court hearings all this week and yesterday Tyrese had to be hospitalized.

According to TMZ, Tyrese checked himself into a hospital yesterday after a full-day in court. He was experiencing chest pains at his hotel, he also felt dehydrated and went to the emergency room. TMZ reports, the "actor is currently getting fluids for dehydration and is about to undergo some tests to find out why he's having chest pains."

Reportedly, his ex-wife Norma Mitchell Gibson slammed him in an emotional testimony yesterday. She 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 four at the time, in an elevator. Tyrese never looked at Norma in the eye and wore all black to court because it was "a funeral for abuse allegations against him." On Tuesday, he wore all white because it wasn't a funeral. What a difference a day makes!
