Tyrese Gibson’s ex wife Norma Gibson’ lifestyle is seriously drilling a huge hole in his pocked as she refused to get a job with the insistence that living the good life is her job.
The court-ordered child support deal between the exes do mandate that Norma must work to become self-sufficient, but she isn’t doing so, according to legal documents obtained by TMZ.
Gibson’s attorneys asked Norma at a deposition what she was doing on August 21 that required seven hours of childcare support, with Norma responding she was busy, ‘living life.’
Norma also added,
‘I am working. I am working on my book. I am working on my life. I am running errands at home.’
Attorneys for Gibson, 39, believe she feels no obligation to find work and start contributing to raising their daughter Shayla, 11.
The Fast & Furious star’s lawyers believe she thinks that Tyrese will simply pay for everything because he’s rich, but the actor’s recent financial troubles are well-documented.
The site adds that Gibson isn’t fighting child support payments to his ex, but he’s fighting her request to pay her lawyer’s fees.
Documents revealed the actor is pulling in $51K a month, on average, but he’s paying out $114K a month for his mortgage, child care, groceries and utilities, which included the $10K a month he pays Norma in child support.
That report also revealed the $800K he had in savings has now dwindled down to $130K.
Gibson has also claimed that the domestic violence charges Norma levied against him have made it hard to book any new work.
He also also wants Norma to provide receipts for the $25 an hour in childcare costs since she has proven she isn’t working and shouldn’t need child care in the first place.
The actor claims he shouldn’t have to pay for child care for personal reasons and the court didn’t lay out any guidelines for when he has to reimburse her for child care.
Gibson also publicly feuded with his Fast & Furious co-star Dwayne Johnson after he moved forward with a spin-off starring Jason Statham instead of a new Fast & Furious sequel.
Universal will start filming Fast & Furious 9 next year, with a 2020 release date in place, with Fast & Furious 10 slated to close out the flagship franchise in 2021.
He hasn’t starred in a movie since 2017’s The Fate of The Furious, but in October, he welcomed his second child, daughter Soraya, with his second wife Samantha Lee.
