Unfortunately, singer/actor Tyrese Gibson and his ex-wife Norma Mitchell are back at it again. Throughout the past near decade, fans and readers alike have seen the tumultous relationship involving the two and their shared 7-year-old daughter, Shayla. With recent investigations in their child custody battle, Norma finally has decded to air out their dirty laundry between the Fast & Furious 7 actor and herself. The pair have been divided in most recent headlines due to Mitchell now being a citizen of Israel and planning to take their daughter along with her for a upcoming trip, in which Tyrese allegedly feels that if she goes along with Mitchell, she will not return. The courts have now honored Norma’s request as she and Shayla are set to take the trip later this week, however, according to both the artist and single mother, this is nothing new in the world of their divorce drama. Check out a few words of insight from the MadameNoire interview below:
On finally breaking her silence on the situation:
Norma Mitchell: I just have come to a point where I felt that I really want to have a voice and speak up for myself, it’s been a long time that I have been going through this and I just want to move on and move forward.
On reports of her kidnapping her daughter in the media:
Norma Mitchell: I’m not a flight risk. It was sad for me seeing myself called ‘Satan’ in the press. It really hurt my feelings. I would never take my daughter to live in a different country away from her father. And if I were going to do that, I wouldn’t be asking for her passport.
What makes the situation between the two parents more interesting is that supposedly, there’s a clause in their custody agreement which was added on August 28 that prohibits both of them from traveling to countries that are not governed by The Hague Convention in which Israel happens to be governed by.
On her response to the clause:
Norma Mitchell: The Hague Convention protects against child abduction. For me to run off with my daughter to Israel is ludicrous. I wouldn’t even live there. I’m a British citizen. I feel like that wasn’t explained.
On what the 7-day trip to Israel consists of:
Norma Mitchell: I’m just going to see my mom. My mom is from Israel and she’s in Israel with my grandmother who is too old to travel. Sometimes we only get to see them once a year. The last time we saw them was three years ago.
