Tyrese has filed documents requesting primary custody of his 10-year-old daughter, Shayla, because he plans to move her with him to Atlanta.
He and his ex-wife, Norma Gibson, have had shared custody up to this point, but he says Norma is keeping his time with Shayla to a minimum.
According to the docs, obtained by TMZ, Tyrese will provide a “stable and loving” environment for Shayla in his 23,000 sq. ft home in Atlanta … which he points out is in an “affluent and safe neighborhood.” He adds, Shayla already has her own room decorated in her favorite colors, and she made plenty of friends while she was there last year.
He also says she’ll attend a top-notch private school there. In the docs, he says another selling point is fewer paparazzi, and the 9th installment of the ‘Fast and Furious’ movies will be shot in the ATL.
Overall, Tyrese says he’s fed up with being cut out of Shayla’s life.
He says there have been at least 2 incidents in the last year when Shayla was ill, once with flu — and in the docs he rips Norma for only contacting him to get insurance info. He claims she refused to fill him in on any other info, such as a diagnosis.
Well, Atlanta does have a cheaper cost of living…but we can’t imagine Norma will allow Tyrese to move their daughter without her.
