Tyrese Gibson’s ex-wife, Norma Gibson, demanded that Tyrese cover all childcare costs for their daughter — but a judge has ruled that Tyrese only has to cover costs for when Norma’s actively working.
According to docs, obtained by TMZ … the judge ruled Norma Gibson can’t expect Tyrese to reimburse her for babysitters and such … if she’s just running “non-work errands” or just running her household.
As we first reported, Tyrese was pissed about childcare bills Norma was running up — especially one particular day in August — when she admitted she was merely “living life.” He was also upset that, in his view, she wasn’t making an effort to get a steady job.
In the docs, the judge lays out what qualifies as work activities for Norma — including developing her life coaching biz, working on her book or pursuing her art. The court says if she requires childcare while doing any of those things … she can put that on Tyrese’s tab.
Tyrese had demanded a detailed, even itemized, accounting of how Norma spends her time. The judge basically said that’s not a bad idea — recommending, but not ordering, Norma to “maintain a diary of time spent on work.”
We have a feeling they’ll be back in court at the top of the year — if not sooner.
