Parents of Soraya Lee Gibson split up.
When people say “I do,” they usually mean for it to be forever. Most marriages don’t last forever, which is sad.
On December 30, 2020, Tyrese Gibson said that his marriage to Samantha Lee was over. He told people about this on social media and said that they were separated at the time and that the divorce would come soon. Most stories have at least two sides, and Samantha and Tyrese Gibson’s marriage problem is no different.
Both people posted about their breakup, thanking each other for the four wonderful years they had spent together and promising to stay friends and do their best for their daughter. But it wasn’t long before a fight broke out, and the public learned Samantha’s side of the story.
Samantha said in a live video that Tyrese Gibson had cut her off about money. She also said that things got really bad between them when he locked her and 2-year-old Soraya out of their Georgia home. People love “tea,” so of course this caused a big stir on social media.
But Tyrese denied all of these claims and said what he thought was true. He said that he didn’t kick out his ex-wife and their 2-year-old daughter. Instead, Tyrese said that Samantha had started stirring up trouble when he got back from a show and that she had threatened to call the police.
Tyrese said he knew things could get out of hand if he stayed in the house while waiting for the police. So, he got up and left. He also said that he did not stop giving Samantha and Soraya money. He said that Samantha wanted him to pay $20,000 a month for taking care of their daughter Soraya. Tyrese Gibson thought this was a crazy amount of money.
