Tyrese Must Take Parenting Classes After Winning 50-50 Custody of Daughter — Report
Tyrese Gibson has come out victorious in his custody battle, but it ain't over yet!
The model won joint custody of his daughter, Shayla, last week, but has reportedly been instructed to take parenting classes now that he'll be spending more time with the child.
Way to kick a dad when he's down, guys!
As Wetpaint reported, the Fast & Furious star was granted 50-50 custody of the 10-year-old on Friday, November 17 after a long, drawn-out custody battle with his ex-wife, Norma Gibson.
Friday was not a win for me, it is a win for our daughter, Shayla. Who unfortunately has been exposed to tension, private and public embarrassment and growing up and feeling torn between 2 parents who are no longer married...... It is a win because she gets to spend equal time with both of her parents in joint legal custody while she continues to grow in a happy and healthy environment this has always been and will continue to be my priority. I hope all of the fathers feel encouraged by this cause if was the real Fathers out there who reached out and kept me encouraged along the way and for that I cant thank you enough... - For 10 years I have been the best father I could be, all while quietly being on the receiving end of constant toxic false accusations by the mother of my child. And of course all the while being thrusted into unexpected social media storms all while trying to fight for my career and stay afloat financially. Today I am proud that the courts have put an end to Normas toxic nonsense, declaring that NONE of her accusations for the last 10 years against me are credible. I did not break any laws; I did not harass anyone; and most important I never engaged in violent or abusive behavior. The physical and emotional violence that Norma publicly accused of were all false and ruled to have no merit, no evidence, and was unsubstantiated in a court of law. I am forever indebted to my attorney Terry Ross who brought my truth to light in supporting me, my wife Samantha and my daughter Shayla and my team who wanted nothing more than for this 10 year nightmare of false claims and accusations to end....... God delivered on his promise that if I stand on my truth and dont bend he will show up for me - Today is the first day of the rest of my life with MY FAMILY, my FRIENDS, my fans and supporters and my business associates and of course my immediate TEAM - God bless you..... broken but I will heal from this #ShaylaRocks.com go there now please!!!!!

Ty called the win a victory for his daughter, as she's no longer torn between her two parents.
"It is a win because she gets to spend equal time with both of her parents in joint legal custody while she continues to grow in a happy and healthy environment," he wrote on Instagram after the judge's verdict.
But even though the logistics have been settled, both Tyrese and Norma have some things they need to work on as parents.
Which is why both parties have been court-ordered to attending parenting classes, according to theJasmineBrand.com.
The classes will instruct them on how to properly discipline the little girl, as neither of them are allowed to spank her any longer.
Additionally, the site reports they'll be attending a "high conflict parenting class," which likely will teach them tactics on how to better communicate and co-parent.
But it looks like the co-parenting thing is already off to a better start, as the 38-year-old revealed Shayla is spending Thanksgiving with her mom this year.
Isn't it so much easier when the court determines a custody schedule and two exes don't have to fight over the kid on their own?!
And while things are great on the fatherhood front for the Transformers hottie, he's still got beef with both Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, with whom he co-stars in Fast & Furious's eighth and ninth installments, and Michael Blackson, who clowned him for his custody drama.
You win some you lose some, right?!
