Tyrese is now officially single and has been ordered to pay $10K in child support to his ex Samantha Lee Gibson with no spousal support.
Before the ruling, the ‘City Bus crooner’ almost got himself in some trouble with the judge when he attempted to ask a question in court.
According to TMZ The judge got super heated during some of Tyrese’s testimony — particularly when Samantha’s attorney grilled him about his finances, and Tyrese tried to fire back at him.
Samantha’s lawyer pointed out Tyrese made more than $2 million in 2018, a year when he claimed to have been in financial ruin. Tyrese responded, “I don’t do the CFO thing. Here’s a question to you, smart person …”
He didn’t get to finish the sentence, because the judge cut him off and shouted, “You don’t ask questions! That’s not how this works!!” He threatened to hold Tyrese in contempt if he tried any more funny stuff.

During the ruling the judge addressed Tyrese directly, saying … “This is not a punishment for you.
Put that money where it belongs, in the child! The judge also advised Samantha and Tyrese not to bad mouth each other in front of Soraya — and said Tyrese should be happy if his ex moves into a nicer house, because it means a better standard of living for his daughter.
Now, the hitch for Tyrese is the judge said the $10k/month dates back to when Samantha first filed for divorce in Sept. 2020 … which means he owes his ex a lump sum of $209k.
However, Tyrese got a credit, noting he had been making Samantha’s car payments for 2 years, the judge knocked off $46k … bringing the lump sum down to $169k.
More good news — at least for Tyrese — the judge said neither party will pay spousal support.
Tyrese is already paying $10,690/month in child support for his teenage daughter, Shayla, who lives in California with his ex-wife Norma Mitchell.
