Original story (10/27/17 ay 9:53 a.m. ET):
It’s been a rough week for Tyrese Gibson.
The actor’s ex-wife, Norma Gibson, says the Fast & Furious star has hired somebody to follow his former lady and her friends to keep tabs on them.
Now Norma is worried about what her ex-husband might do to her and their 10-year-old daughter, Shayla.
According to TMZ, Norma was in court on Thursday, October 26 trying to get a restraining order against the 38-year-old.
She claimed the rapper has been harassing her since 2014.
The mother of one also revealed she’s scared of the famous star “at times.”
As proof of his violent tendencies, Norma also brought up the 2007 incident where he reportedly punched her while she was pregnant.
Of course, according to the Furious 7 star, all of Norma’s claims are false.

He also believes she’s only requesting a restraining order because he remarried earlier this year.
He also says he hasn’t seen his daughter in over 60 days.
Norma already has a temporary restraining order against her former man because he reportedly abused their daughter.
In fact, Norma claims the father of one pushed their daughter to the ground and “grabbed her hands with one arm and beat her with the other.”
However, according to Tyrese, he only hit her once on the bottom.
Meanwhile, Tyrese checked himself into a Los Angeles hospital on Thursday night, according to TMZ.
He was complaining of chest pains after a long day in court with his ex.
Sources say he was feeling dehydrated and decided to go to the hospital to get it checked out.
He’s now getting fluids to help the dehydration and is undergoing tests to find out the cause of the chest pains.
