For months last year, courtesy of an endless stream of Instagram videos and Twitter posts, singer/actor Tyrese was melting down for all the world to see. Now, as we near the latter half of 2018, he’s been relatively quiet—but that hiatus is officially over as he has new claims about his finances and his ex-wife.
Things got so bad for #Tyrese
last year that he was dubbed #Cryrese
thanks to his overly emotional videos and online rants about everything from working with #Dwayne #TheRock
Johnson to his bitter custody battle with his ex-wife Norma to the inner-workings of the industry. 2018 saw Tyrese announce the impending arrival of a child with his current wife Samantha and things appeared to calm down, but a new report details his claims that his life is in shambles.
In new court documents, Tyrese claims that he is flat broke. He states that he was previously pulling in $180,000 a month, but over the last year, that number has dwindled to $51,000 monthly. He blames the drop in income on the prior domestic abuse allegations from his ex-wife Norma Gibson and says that because of this he “has been unable to find work in the entertainment field.” Tyrese also says that he currently on has $130,000 left in cash and he spent $200,000 last year fighting Norma in court over the custody of their daughter Shayla. The documents detail that he pays Norma $10,853 in monthly child support and he is trying to avoid paying her legal fees.
As far as his spending habits, Tyrese states he has $113,000 per month in expenses, including over $31,000 of expenses he lists as “other.” Since he claims he has been unable to find work, he says that his money primarily comes from royalties, residuals and personal appearances.
Now, none of us truly know what goes on in another person’s finances, but towards the end of last year and the earlier part of 2018, Tyrese was showing out for Instagram with trips on private jets to Dubai, showing off the Starbucks in his backyard and flexing with his numerous cars.
Is he financially in the hole because of the claims of his ex or has he been living beyond his means?
