Norma Mitchell Gibson, ex-wife of Tyrese Gibson, previously accused the crooner of being physically abusive towards their daughter Shayla. This led to the mother filing a temporary restraining order against her ex, which she soon hopes to make permanent after her latest damning testimony.
The concerned mother took to the stand Wednesday afternoon, sharing disturbing accusations about the Fast and the Furious actor. Blast reports Norma claimed in 2007 that while pregnant with Shayla, Tyrese burst into their bedroom after midnight, poured water on her, and then eventually punched her 8-10 times in the body.
She also claimed the Baby Boy star punched her in an elevator while she held their daughter in 2011.
The Watts, CA native reportedly kept his eyes fixated on current wife, Samantha, during Norma’s testimony.
Headed into court and we just want you guys to know we’re not here to win……. We’re here for Shayla no one wins in the end cause our angels is feeling all of this…… Please parents that are currently going through issues keep this in mind…… When parents go to war we effect the kids deeply……. But in everything me and we wife go into.. We go into it rather GOOD or bad we count our blessings, are stand WITH each other and pull from each others strength and power……… When my queen prays her words are so powerful and beautiful the queen kiss on her crown follows……… Sending love and light around the world…. #FamilyFirst

The ex-wife also called out Ty for violating his temporary restraining order by flying an airplane over their child’s school, a move he admitted to on Instagram.
She previously asserted that the “Sweet Lady” artist hit their daughter “between 12 and 16 times,” leading the child to allegedly later tell her mom that she couldn’t sit down due to pain, saying, “Mom, Dad beat me so hard that it hurts when I sit down,” according to documents obtained by People.
Tyrese denies all abuse allegations.
