Just last week, Tyrese Gibson and wife, Samantha Lee, announced they were going their separate ways. And although they emphasized, “Our intention is to remain the best of friends & strong coparents,” they have unfortunately hit a road block in that plan.
Although they told the world about their plans just 6 days ago, Samantha actually filed for divorce in September and the allegations in the doc are surprising. According to Lee, Gibson cut her off financially, and locked her and their 2-year-old daughter, Soraya, out of the family’s Georgia home just prior to her filing.
Of course, Ty has filed docs of his own denying that he cut Sam off and locked her out. However, he is challenging her $20k child support request calling it “unreasonably high.”
According to several reports, the two had a huge falling out following Tyrese’s return from a movie set in August. Samantha threatened to call the police and Ty bolted in order to avoid a confrontation with the cops. But, even though things seem to have ended on a sour note, their parting words seemed optimistic when the two posted this same message on IG:
Hopefully, these two can at least find their way back to a cordial uncoupling.
