Tyrese Gibson pays $10K a month in child support
Tyrese Gibson was ordered to pay $10,690 a month in child support during Tuesday’s hearing. It was held before Superior Court Judge Kevin M. Farmer in Fulton County, Georgia.
According to a TMZ article, Gibson is officially single after a judge granted him a divorce petition from his estranged wife, Samantha Lee Gibson.
In addition, Tyrese and Samantha are parents to three-year-old daughter Soraya.
Samantha originally asked for $209,000 in child support when she first filed for divorce in September 2020.
However, the judge reduced it by $46,000 saying that Tyrese had been paying for Samantha’s car for two years. Therefore, Tyrese now has $169,000 in debt.
Additionally, Tyrese requested joint custody of Soraya during a preliminary hearing on Monday.
The 43-year-old actor said he doesn’t want to pay $20,000 a month in child support saying it’s ‘too much.’ He also asked to have a final word on Soraya’s sudden and untreated illnesses.
Tyrese has also said that Samantha is a loner. The star’s lawyer revealed Samantha’s personal grooming expenses over the past two years were about $1,740.
They said the child support money was to pay for Samantha’s life.
Tyrese’s lawyer Tanya Mitchell Graham said, ‘He asked for a lot of money in child support but he spends a lot of money on cosmetics. Is he asking for money for the child or is he asking for money for himself?’
Tyrese Gibson and Samantha Lee Gibson’s relationship
Tyrese Gibson first met Samantha Lee in 2015. They secretly tied the knot in 2017 on Valentine’s Day.
However, in December 2020 the couple announced that they had separated.
Although, the former couple said in a separate statement that they will, ‘be good friends and strong parents.’
At that time, the judge said, ‘This is not a punishment for you. Put that money where it belongs, in the child!’ when declaring child support money.
He also warned them not to speak ill of each other in front of their daughter whom they welcomed in October 2018.
