Tyrese Is Calling On Black Fathers

The singer/actor has been held in contempt after being ordered to pay $237,944.15 in back child support for his youngest daughter, Soraya, and nearly $400,000 in legal fees for her mother, according to VIBE. He previously called on “any fathers advocate groups” and legal representation to come to the Fulton County courthouse in support of him, and asked for help from “any fathers advocate groups” or any legal representation to help him get new laws in place. Tyrese Is Calling On Black Fathers for support now.

“I am ready along with a whole lot of other fathers who continue to get f**ked over by the family law court system…. I’ve never been the type of man to sit on my hands quietly b***h and moan at home about everything…. I stand UP and speak UP and OUT about injustice.”

According to TMZ, the Baby Boy actor has to take a significant cut to his bank account because the judge ordered him to pay $237,944 in back child support to his former wife, Samantha Lee Gibson, for their daughter Soraya. The singer must also pay $399,000 for Lee’s attorney fees.

But wait, there’s more! 

The judge ordered that he shell out an additional $17,000 for the special master appointed to the case. If you do the math, that’s more than half a million dollars ($653,944) he has to fork over to Lee Gibson. It’s unclear whether or not Tyrese’s call to action to remove the judge from the case factored into the court’s decision. However, when Tyrese took the stand on Tuesday, he told Judge Kevin M. Farmer that the $10,000 a month he was previously ordered to pay was excessive. The Watts native argued that his ex-wife makes a good salary herself.
