Tyrese Admits His First Marriage Was Not For Love: “I Married Her To Keep Her in the Country”

Blogged by @tktrinidad

Singer, Tyrese Gibson  did a “not so smart move” on “The Ricky Smiley Morning Show,” he said he only married his ex-wife Norma Gibson to keep her in the country. Tyrese explains, “I married you to keep you in the country. I never married you because I was happily married. You’re from London. I married you because we had a baby on the way and I had to do whatever I had to do so that I’m not traveling all the way to London just to spend quality time with my baby. You know that I married her to keep her in the country. I’m giving ya’ll the raw scoop.”



Not a smart move on Tyrese’s part because what he admitted to is called marriage fraud, which is illegal and a federal crime (“Any individual who knowingly enters into a marriage for the purpose of evading any provision of the immigration laws shall be imprisoned for not more than 5 years, or fined not more than $250,000, or both.”)



Tyrese and his first wife have been going through it for the last year. She filed a restraining order against him in September, claiming he beat his 10-year old daughter, Shayla.  There was an investigation and the charges were later dropped. The courts later awarded them 50/50 custody, beginning in January and they denied his ex-wife’s request to make the restraining order permanent.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀



The list of the questionable things Tyrese has done and has been a part of, is concerning. Maybe it is time for Mr. Gibson to get a new PR team.

  1. He F’ed himself! Cause if this is what he is claiming then she could easily say she had no idea of his real intentions and not be charged with any crime while Tyrese on the other hand could still face charges. Hopefully he only has to pay a fine because we see how this man acts when you try to take his kid! If he had to go to jail she could take him back to court and win full custody of the child. Then he would be looking real sick!
