A source close to the ongoing legal battle between Tyrese and ex-wife Norma Gibson confirmed to Page Six on Monday that Tyrese’s lawyer, Terry Levich Ross, is no longer representing the actor after Ross filed for a substitution of attorney.
Tyrese and Norma are expected at another hearing Tuesday, and our source said it wouldn’t “be a surprise” if the “Fast & Furious” franchise star appears with a new attorney. But, as of now, Tyrese will act as his own lawyer.
Norma is seeking a permanent restraining order against the actor, who Norma claimed beat their 10-year-old daughter Shayla. The ongoing court proceedings have taken a toll on Tyrese, who recently filmed an emotional breakdown on social media. On Saturday, Tyrese blamed “psych meds” for his meltdown.
“This s–t is completely out of my system,” he wrote. “I flushed these psych meds Down the toilet and I’m already back at 100% – please don’t chalk this up as “oversharing” a lot of people were effected by what these psych meds did to me over these last 2 months and this is my public apology I’m so very sorry guys.”
An investigation into allegations of child abuse has been dropped, but Tyrese is accused of having skipped court-approved visits with his daughter.
