Actor, Tyrese Gibson won his court battle over custody of his 10-year-old daughter on Friday, after a judge denied his ex’s request for a permanent restraining order against him, which would have severely restricted his access to his daughter, Shayla.
Norma had claimed that Tyrese physically abused their 10-year-old daughter, claiming he beat her up 12 to 16 times, owever.
Child services initially launched their investigation into Gibson after Norma, who was married to him from 2007 to 2009, accused the actor of abusing their daughter on Aug. 19, claiming in court documents that Tyrese “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.”
Tyrese denied the allegation, saying he only struck her once on the bottom, and that Norma was just being vindictive.
On Friday, the judge ruled that both Tyrese and his ex Norma Gibson will have equal joint custody of their daughter starting in January. Until then,both sides have worked out a visitation schedule that will allow Tyrese to see Shayla over the holidays.
