Tyrese Gibson and wife Samantha Lee have announced their marriage is ending. The couple jointly announced on Instagram that they are divorcing after nearly four years of marriage.
“Our intention is to remain the best of friends & strong coparents. We feel incredibly blessed to have found each other and deeply grateful for the 4 years we have been married to each other,” they both wrote on social media on Tuesday.

“Our journey together has been a ride of both ups & downs, but it’s a journey that neither of us would have chosen to take with anyone else. We truly have so much love & respect for each other,” their joint statement continued. “We both have grown tremendously within this relationship; we have shared so many beautiful memories and moments, and we also look forward to see the amazing futures we have ahead of us individually.”
Gibson followed that up with another post and video writing, “Black families and marriages are under attack …
“I’ve wrestled with this question…How can we naturally know how to BE something we never raised by? Most of us were raised in broken homes with NO examples of what being a husband, wife or FATHER is…. I repeat…. How can we naturally know how to BE something we were never raised by?”
Gibson ended his comment with a message of hope that one day he and Lee will reconcile.

“Samantha Gibson, I owe you everything. I am a better man of God, friend, and father because of you…” he continued. “I pray we leave the door open because the God that we serve is a mountains mover and can make a way out of now way…..”
Gibson and Lee secretly married in February 2017. The couple have one child together, 2-year-old daughter Soraya. The Fast & the Furious star also shares 13-year-old daughter Shayla with ex-wife Norma Gibson.
News of his divorce came just one day before his 42nd birthday … and hours after he revealed on Instagram that his Range Rover had been stolen from his Atlanta home.
