Tyrese's ex-wife claps back to 'married for green card' statements

Cape Town - Tyrese was all over the news again, making apparent false claims. The actor who claimed that Will Smith gave him $5 million when he was having custody troubles, has now claimed that he only married his ex-wife, Norma Gibson, so that she could get her a green card in order for her to live in America.

Tyrese made the claim in a recent interview on the Rickey Smiley Morning Show.

According to Page Six, the 38-year-old said, "We had an angel, but I married you to keep you in the country. I never married you because I was happily married."

Tyrese continued to put his relationship with Norma into disrepute, "You're from London. I married you because we had a baby on the way and I had to do whatever I had to do so I’m not traveling all the way to London just to spend quality time with my baby.

"So now you’re running around painting this picture, like we was [whistles ‘Bridal Chorus’], like bro we got married and there was like seven people there. Like, I am the flashiest, most flamboyant dude -- other than Floyd Mayweather. I am the flashiest. There’s nothing about me that’s low-key and quiet. You know that I married her to keep her in the country."

But Norma is having none of it. With the mother of his 10 year old daughter, Shayla, clapping back through sources close to her.

According to BET, a source close to Norma said "He's lying as always. He tried to get her back before they were engaged...He's just furious she wouldn't come back to him."

The source also claimed that Tyrese is gunning for full custody of Shayla.
