Tyrese Sued by American Express for Unpaid Balance of $61K

Tyrese has been hit with a lawsuit by American Express for an unpaid debt.

According to court documents obtained by TMZ, the singer has an outstanding balance with the financial services company of $61,071.35. In November, TMZ reported that Tyrese was having some issues with money because of his ongoing feud with his ex-wife, Norma Gibson.

The Fast and Furious star filed documents claiming that he has monthly expenses of $107,576 but only brings in $105,686 a month. At the time of the report, Tyrese had $900,000 in the bank and property worth close to $2 million.

This legal issue comes amid the custody battle for his 10-year-old daughter, Shayla. Last year, Tyrese notoriously became a meme after crying on video about how financially draining the ordeal has been. He believes his daughter is best suited to live with him in his $4 million Atlanta mansion as opposed to in Los Angeles with her mother, who Tyrese alleges restricts their time together.
