Judge to Tyrese: No More Spanking Daughter! – Actor Apologies to Will & Jada

*Tyrese Gibson was awarded joint custody of his 10-year-old daughter, Shayla, on Friday, while ex-wife Norma Gibson’s domestic violence restraining order request was DENIED, according to court documents obtained by ET.

Some may consider it a win-win for Tyrese, but a Los Angeles County judge also issued a series of conditions, including:

— Neither Tyrese nor Norma Gibson can use corporal punishment in disciplining 10-year-old Shayla.

— Tyrese must take parenting classes focused on appropriate disciplining of his daughter.

— Both Tyrese and Norma must enroll in “high conflict parenting classes.”

— Tyrese and Shayla must enroll in joint therapy with a psychologist. Shayla must also undergo individual counseling.

According to the order, Tyrese has Shayla for both Christmas and New Year’s — and all of his visits with her must be spent in Southern  California until April 30.

The Fast and Furious star took advantage of his custody victory and spent Saturday at the beach with his daughter. Wearing his customary “Shayla Rocks” sweatshirt, the two also dined for lunch and nearby Nobu, reports The Blast. 

He previously slammed the child’s mother in an Instagram post for not taking the custody battle seriously, stating that she was sitting in court complaining about her nails:

“While waiting on the judgement I was broken and on edge and I overheard NoRMA and her lawyer in the courts room casually discussing getting their nails not being done?? They’ve been in court and have had no time for Nails?? Really?? That casual..?? Me without Shayla for 80+ days and it’s about your nails?????,” he wrote.

Meanwhile, Tyrese has issued an apology to Will and Jada for stating on Instagram that they promised to give him $5 million to help with his legal fees. Gibson blames the anti-depressant Rexulti for causing him to spew alternative facts:

“Me and Jada was just exchanging text messages today. I just asked them to forgive me, man. I took that medicine and we had some real conversations about them helping me out. But it was that medicine that made me put it on my Instagram,’ Tyrese told TMZ. “A little word of advice for anybody out there, somebody ever say they’re going to help you out, wait until the money come in before you Instagram about it. Forgiveness, forgiveness for all of the embarrassment I caused to the Smith family I apologize I was not in my right state of mind, man. Them psych meds had me f***ed up. My business is all in the streets. Everybody know, financially, I’m in a tight spot and it’s because of all these legal fees.”
