Is Tyrese Gibson Really Broke as He Claimed?

In November 2017, Tyrese Gibson posted a cryptic message on Instagram where he said he was desperate and broke. According to the video, the musician attributed his reason for being broke as his divorce and daughter’s custody battle with his ex-wife, Norma Mitchell. Meanwhile, the couple was married for two years from 2007 to 2009. Their daughter Shayla was born in 2007.

A few weeks after the post was made, Gibson also made headlines as he filed court papers listing his monthly income as $105,000 which sounds like a big sum; nevertheless, he spends $107,000 in expenses every month. He also alleged that he has just $900,000 in the bank and $1.7 million worth of real estate assets. In addition, he also disclosed that he owes his lawyers around $133,000.

While it is not known if the actor/musician is really broke or not, Tyrese’s net worth has been greatly affected since then as the actor hasn’t scored any significant acting role lately. However, according to credible sources, Tyrese and his ex Norma Mitchell are said to currently share custody of their daughter, Shayla. That notwithstanding, it is known that Tyrese wants their daughter to live with him in Atlanta rather than with her mother in Los Angeles.
