Tyrese Gibson’s much documented money problems appear to have gotten worse after his financial records proved that he is struggling financially.
The model turned actor responded to his ex-wife Norma Gibson’s request for him to pay for her divorce attorney.
Those records show The Fast & Furious star spends about $114,000 a month on bills that includes: his mortgage, utilities, child care and groceries. Add another $10,000 a month in child support payments to his estranged wife and that brings the monthly total to $124,000.
Currently he brings in about $51,000 a month, which translates to a $73,000 a month deficit.
Things have reportedly gotten so bad the 39-year old’s savings account has withered down from $800,000 in cash to $130,000 over the last nine months.
Tyrese has cast blame on his ex for his recent money problems — maintaining that the bad press that he got after she accused him of domestic violence last year made it difficult for him to land more movie rolls.
The former couple have been engaged in a bitter custody battle over their 11-year old daughter Shayla. At one point, Norma requested a restraining order against Tyrese, who she claimed allegedly beat their daughter. A judge ultimately denied the request, claiming there wasn’t an ongoing pattern of harassment against Norma or their daughter.
The former couple currently have shared custody, but Tyrese wants Shayla to live with him at his Atlanta mansion rather than remain with her mother in Los Angeles.
Last year, the LA native tied the knot with New Jersey-born Samantha Lee and they announced in April that they are expecting a baby together. The baby girl is due in September.
Tyrese has been a part of a number of blockbuster films that includes: roles in five of the Fast & Furious action movies beginning in 2003, Annapolis (2005), Transformers (2007), Death Race (2008), Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (2009), Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011) and Ride Along 2 (2016).
