Tyrese and Norma Gibson Were at Odds Over Their Daughter Playing Soccer, Judge Rules It's Okay

Tyrese and Norma Gibson can’t see eye-to-eye when it comes on raising their 11-year-old daughter, Shayla.

The former couple couldn’t agree on whether or not Shayla should be allowed to play soccer — so a judge had to step in.

via TMZ:

Tyrese had refused, saying her grades weren’t up to snuff and she should focus on academics. Norma countered Shayla is “emotionally devastated” she’s not allowed to play, adding her grades are good enough. Norma says it got to the point where Shayla “cries, feels humiliated and does not want to go to school.”

The judge ruled Norma can enroll Shayla in the soccer program. When Shayla is in Tyrese’s custody, however, the judge says he does not have to let her play.

The judge wants to hear more on the subject next month.

This isn’t the first argument of its kind. Back in October, Norma wanted Shayla to play basketball but Tyrese refused. He eventually relented. Norma claims Tyrese also refused to let Shayla participate in a school play, saying it costs too much money. He agreed to let her do it when Norma agreed to pay half.

Tyrese says he never objected to Shayla participating in the school play, especially because it was within school hours. The sports programs, however, are after school and he wanted Shayla to spend that time with tutors.

And, there’s more. According to Norma’s docs, there was a school field trip to a downtown eatery and Shayla was on the bus when Tyrese had her taken off the bus.

This is ridiculous.
