Tyrese Gibson is not taking his contentious custody battle for his only child, 10-year-old daughter Shayla, lightly.
The Fast and Furious star posted an emotional video to his Facebook page on Wednesday, sobbing as he seemingly tried to get a message through to his ex-wife, Norma Gibson, who alleged in court documents that Tyrese hit and beat their daughter to the ground back in August. Tyrese claims the allegations are false.
In the video, Tyrese, sporting a 'Shayla Rocks' hoodie, exclaims, "Look at this. You take my one from me... I'm not gonna sit here and paint the picture of systematic racism, I'm just going to say the uninvolved fathers has made it bad for the involved fathers because our voices are someway, somehow being drowned out."
“Don’t take my baby," he adds, now fully in tears. "Don't take my baby, please. This is all I got. Don’t take my baby, OK? I’ve been away from my baby for two months. I just want my baby and no one’s listening 'cause no one’s in the courtroom.”
Tyrese continues on, explaining that he's "not doing anything illegal."
"I'm at $13,000 a month, what more do you want from me?" he says. "Oh my God. My Shayla. And ain't nobody showing up for me. I've got all these millionaire friends, I've got billionaire friends. I've been there for you, why is nobody there for me?"
"I don't hate you, Norma. I don't know why you hate me, but I don't hate you," he adds. "But you can't just wake up on Sept. 11 and just decide to accuse me of something I didn't do."
Tyrese also alludes to the fact that he and his new wife, Samantha Lee Gibson, are trying to expand their family.
"Shayla... my first and only pregnancy... 'til this day," he says. "Well, I got another one on the way, but he's not here yet."
Despite what seemed to be a breakdown, Tyrese later told fans on Instagram that he's doing all right.
"Contrary to what some of you may believe, I'm actually OK," he said in the video. "And I'm not putting this up to calm people down."
Tyrese posted another video on Thursday, explaining in the caption, "Visionaries BOLD people of God - I will get back to entertaining you guys as a entertainer soon...... Right now NOTHING I️ repeat NOTHING ELSE MATTERS BUT MY DAUGHTER."
He revealed in the video that he was on his way to court and asked fans to pray for him and his daughter. Watch below:
In response to the Facebook video Tyrese posted on Wednesday, Norma’s attorney, Aleen Khanjian, tells ET, “He had a court ordered, professionally monitored, dinner visit with his daughter last night. He knew that since Monday. His emotional outburst yesterday was nothing more than a means of misleading and manipulating his friends and fans."
Additionally, a source close to the situation tells ET that Tyrese showed up late to the scheduled dinner and spent about five minutes with his daughter. The source also says that, at this time, Shayla has not testified in court. Shayla gave an interview with the LAPD that sparked this investigation, and instead of Tyrese’s legal team allowing that to be brought into evidence, they prefer to put Shayla on the stand and cross-examine her in open court.
The source adds that, due to her young age and the fact that it's not a closed court, Norma does not want Shayla to testify.
