And on 21 August 2017, Samantha’s husband Tyrese shared a picture of himself from the hospital bed, where his nine-years-old daughter Shayla was seen hugging him.
While Tyrese shared the image, he captioned it saying that he had a 3-hour surgery where his amazing wife and daughter were by his side. Tyrese wrote:-
“By my side…….. My Amazing wife and Daughter has been by my side every step of the way…. When it comes down to the real stuff no one is ever there but family……”
“Father God I thank you for your extended grace and mercy 3 hour surgery I made it through. I was in the middle of my procedure during the eclipse, I hope one day I figure out exactly what that meant. God has a way of sometimes forcing us to slow down…. When I get up? I feel like I’m about to change the world…… #PrayerWarriors I feel your love…… thank you! #MyLastPort #RecoveryMode.”
Tyrese is surely lucky to have such a supportive family, right?
Talking about Tyrese's past, he was previously married to Norma Mitchell in 2007, with whom he shares a ten-year-old daughter, Shayla. Gibson was bound in a marital relationship with Norma for two years, as they got divorced in 2009.
Although their separation had been amicable, the former couple over the years has developed a tumultuous relationship because of debate over the amount of child support. For about a year, the one time married duo engaged in a public battle since they were awarded joint custody of their daughter.
And then in November of 2018, the tide which swept their once-flourishing relationship turned in Tyrese favor following a ruling by a judge. The stated ruling waived Tyrese of child support expenses incurred by Norma while running non-work errands.
