During his custody war with Norma Gibson, the actor/singer claimed he was financially strapped, and even said Will and Jada Smith gave him $5 million to help out. That allegation was later refuted by sources close to the couple.
Many are wondering if Tyrese is really as cash-strapped as he claims because he bought a new $4 million home in Atlanta last year, and now he wants to relocate to Atlanta with his daughter because, he claims, she can live in luxury and attend private school.
But his baby mama has other plans.

Tyrese had his legal team rush to court and stop his ex-wife from taking their daughter to Israel. Gibson appeared in court Tuesday for an emergency hearing, seeking an order to let her take her daughter out of the country.
The “Fast and the Furious” star’s attorney argued that there’s no sound reason for Norma to take the child to Israel and he claims Tyrese is worried about the safety there, especially since more violence has erupted since the U.S. embassy was moved into Jerusalem.
Tyrese reportedly scored a victory in this latest ’bout with his ex, and not only got the judge to shut down Norma’s request, but made her agree to turn over Shayla’s passport.
The judge also scolded Norma’s legal team for putting so much time to prepare a “well-written seven-page request with seventeen exhibits,” but then filing it as an emergency petition.
Norma’s sudden request also comes on the heels of Tyrese trying to modify their custody agreement and move his daughter to Atlanta.
