Tyrese’s divorce from ex-wife Samantha Lee is still in progress.
According to documents obtained by TMZ, the R&B singer, 43, appeared in court on Monday for a divorce hearing, where he stated that he does not want to pay Samantha, 31, spousal support and is requesting that the couple’s prenup be enforced.
The actor also asked for joint physical and legal custody of the couple’s three-year-old daughter, Soraya Gibson, as well as final authority on non-medical emergencies involving the child.Embed from Getty Images
Samantha’s request for $20k in monthly child support was deemed ‘unreasonably high’ by Tyrese.
Additionally, the Los Angeles native wishes to keep the couple’s 2016 Range Rover.
He is, however, willing to allow Samantha to keep one of the couple’s other SUVs, a 2017 Land Rover Discovery.
In September 2020, Samantha filed for a divorce from the six-time Grammy nominee, claiming Tyrese had locked her out of the house. He has denied the allegations.Embed from Getty Images
From his two-year marriage to Norma Mitchell, which ended in 2009, he also has joint custody of his 15-year-old daughter Shayla Somer.
The Fast and Furious actor and Samantha, who has a Master’s degree in social work, secretly married on Valentine’s Day in 2017.
According to TMZ, Samantha uses her degree to fight sex and human trafficking, as well as to advocate for inmate counseling.
