Fulton County judge orders Tyrese to pay up in contentious child custody battle

The Fulton County judge that actor and singer Tyrese Gibson publicly called out before his child custody hearing has ordered him to pay nearly $250k to his ex-wife, Samantha Lee Gibson, and almost $400k to her attorney.

Tyrese was in court on Tuesday to address his ongoing child support battle with Samantha. The main issue centered around Tyrese refusing to pay the $10,000 per month he was ordered to pay last August. The singer claimed that the judge was “racist” and biased against him.

“Tyrese feels the $10K is excessive — he claims Samantha doesn’t need that much, because she makes good money on her own.”

Despite his objections, Tyrese has been ordered to pay a total of $237,944 in back child support for their daughter, Soraya, and $399,000 for Samantha’s attorney fees. Additionally, Tyrese will have to cover a $17,000 bill for the special master, a referee appointed by the judge to handle minor disputes during the case.

A Contentious Custody Battle

The custody case has been fraught with tension and accusations from both sides. Tyrese’s public outburst against the judge is just one example of the animosity that has arisen during the proceedings.

While the court has made its decision regarding the financial aspects of the case, it remains to be seen whether the ruling will put an end to the ongoing conflict between Tyrese and Samantha. The couple divorced in 2020 after four years of marriage.
