Tyrese Gibson Ex-Wife Wants Mental Evaluation

11/14/2017 2:38 PM PST

The lawyer for Tyrese Gibson's ex-wife, Norma, just told the court it's essential for the judge in their custody war to demand a mental evaluation of the actor in light of recent, bizarre actions.

Attorney Aleen Khanjian was referring to the various videos Tyrese has posted, referencing Norma and Shayla.

Khanjian also mentioned in court a court-appointed evaluator has referred to Tyrese as having a "mental illness."

Norma is going for a permanent restraining order against Tyrese and she argued Tuesday he's violated the temporary order by posting videos talking about 10-year-old Shayla.

The judge did not order a mental evaluation ... at least not yet.

Tyrese Patted Down By Bailiffs In Bitter Custody Case

11/2/2017 11:11 AM PDT

Tyrese Gibson was cornered in a courthouse hallway Thursday by 4 bailiffs who fully patted him down ... this after Tyrese exhibited emotional/irrational behavior on video Wednesday.

Tyrese showed up at the downtown L.A. Courthouse for the custody case that has been going on for more than a week. His ex, Norma Gibson, is trying to get a permanent restraining order against him which would block Tyrese from gaining custody of their 10-year-old daughter, Shayla.

We're told the bailiffs -- all of whom work for the L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. -- were concerned that Tyrese might actually bring a weapon to court, so he was pulled aside in the hallway and given the pat down.

Tyrese told the bailiffs, "Yes, I understand" when they told him they need to do the security check.

No weapons were found. 


Tyrese Melts Down Rich Friends Won't Help 'Please Don't Take My Baby!!!'

11/1/2017 9:47 AM PDT

Tyrese is coming apart at the seams over his legal battle to see his daughter, and he recorded an emotional breakdown hours before heading to court.

Tyrese posted this video where he just loses it, saying he's been away from 10-year-old Shayla for too long -- 2 months -- and begging his ex-wife, Norma Gibson, to drop her fight for a restraining order against him.

He also said he has millionaire and billionaire friends who just aren't showing up to help him in his time of need. Tyrese references the fact that much of the court proceedings have been sealed from the public. He says no one is hearing his pleas to see his daughter because they're not in court.

Shayla's nanny is expected to wrap up testifying Wednesday afternoon when the restraining order hearing resumes.

Katherine Jackson I Don't Need to Be Blanket's Guardian Anymore

10/30/2017 9:30 AM PDT

Katherine Jackson is bowing out of the guardian biz when it comes to Michael Jackson's youngest child, Blanket.

According to docs filed by Katherine ... there's no longer any need for her to be the 15-year-old's guardian. Katherine had been appointed joint guardian -- along with TJ Jackson -- of all 3 of Michael's kids in 2012. 

Both Paris and Prince are adults now, but Katherine says because Blanket has reached his adolescence ... TJ can handle guardianship on his own. She also points to her own age, 87, as a reason she's stepping down.

Worth noting ... Katherine had not seen her grandchildren for several months earlier this year. It's still unclear how much contact she's had with MJ's children.

A judge still needs to approve Grandma Jackson's request.

10/30/2017 7:53 AM PDT

Jeremy Meeks is an absentee father whose success as the so-called "Hot Felon" went straight to his head ... so claims his estranged wife.

Melissa Meeks filed docs demanding child and spousal support, as well as sole legal and physical custody ... claiming Jeremy sees their 7-year-old son "maybe 2 days a month."

In docs obtained by TMZ, Melissa says Jeremy "basically lives as a playboy with a rich girlfriend" ... TopShop heir Chloe Green. Melissa claims he drives a $150k car and has lots of jewelry now.

She doesn't list how much she wants in support because "I am not yet sure of his income, but I am sure it is more than mine."

She says Jeremy's "success went to his head and he left us." As we reported ... he filed docs back in July to separate from Melissa after 8 years. He filed for divorce in October. 

Tyrese Take Your Daughter to In-N-Out Day

10/30/2017 12:50 AM PDT

Tyrese's first visit with his daughter in 2 months was pretty short ... so he took her to a place that's just as quick with grub that made both daddy and daughter smile. 

Tyrese got to see 10-year-old Shayla Sunday for a monitored visit in a Van Nuys office building. They capped off the visit by going across the street for burgers and fries at In-N-Out.

From the looks of the photos, Shayla and dad were definitely enjoying each other's company.

We broke the story ... Tyrese and his ex-wife, Norma, will be in court this week in what has become a marathon hearing in which she's trying to get a permanent restraining order.  

The judge gave the green light Friday for Sunday's visit.

Tyrese Gibson Exhausted, Depressed ...Leaving Hospital

10/27/2017 6:21 AM PDT

Tyrese Gibson was down in the dumps as he left Cedars-Sinai Thursday night, after checking himself in for chest pains and anxiety.

Tyrese says he's never been embroiled in a court case in his life, and Thursday's marathon hearing that pitted him against ex-wife Norma Gibson clearly took its toll.

Gibson is trying to get a permanent restraining order claiming Tyrese has used excessive force in disciplining their 10-year-old daughter, Shayla ... something Tyrese vehemently denies.

Tyrese smoked a stogie on a bench before his wife picked him up ... she's not into it.

Whatever it takes for a little relief.

10/26/2017 6:27 PM PDT

Tyrese checked himself into an L.A. hospital Thursday night after experiencing bad chest pains, shortly after an explosive day in court with his ex-wife ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to Tyrese tell us he went back to his hotel after leaving the courthouse -- he's currently in a legal battle with his ex, Norma Gibson -- when he started having the pain. We're told he felt dehydrated as well, so he decided to go to the ER.

Our sources say the "Fast & Furious" actor is currently getting fluids for dehydration and is about to undergo some tests to find out why he's having chest pains.

Tyrese left court earlier Thursday in all-black, telling us today was a funeral for abuse allegations against him. As we reported ... Norma accused him of spying on her and claimed she was afraid of him at times.

Story developing ... 

Tyrese Today was a Funeral ... For Accusations Against Me

10/26/2017 6:15 PM PDT

Tyrese believes there was a death in the courtroom Thursday ... and a figurative funeral was held for all the accusations about him being a bad dad.

We got Tyrese leaving the L.A. courthouse with his wife, Samantha Lee, and asked him about his all-black wardrobe  -- a stark contrast from his all-white getup Tuesday -- and he waxed poetic ... saying it represents the "death of a dialogue" of abuse allegations that have followed him for years.

As we reported ... his ex-wife, Norma Gibson, took the stand Thursday to try to get a permanent restraining order against him for her and their daughter Shayla ... and claimed she's afraid of him at times.

Tyrese seems to think Norma's testimony is the last of it and he's ready to move on ... and he's doing everything for his only child, Shayla.

Kevin Dillon Battles Ex Over Kid's Tuition I Can't Afford Private School!!!

10/20/2017 11:50 AM PDT

Kevin Dillon's not going to fork over a dime to his estranged wife to send their daughter to private school, especially since he thinks public school is perfectly fine ... according to new legal docs.

The "Entourage" star says he can't afford to pay his ex, Jane Stuart, any more money for tuition for their daughter Ava -- who's heading into 6th grade -- because he's already paying child and spousal support and living off his savings.

The problem -- Jane believes Ava should attend a private school in Calabasas, where she's gone her whole life, but Kevin thinks a public school in Malibu with a "gold medal" ranking by U.S. News and World Report is more than sufficient ... not to mention more cost-effective.

Jane claims Kevin's out of touch with their daughter's needs ... and she doesn't want Ava to attend the Malibu school because of its alleged drug issues and cancer-causing agents on campus.

As we reported ... Dillon was already ordered to pay $3,174 a month in child support and $7,214 in monthly spousal support to Stuart.

Ralphie May Last Meal Jalapeno Poppers and a Chicken Sandwich

10/10/2017 1:00 AM PDT

It's not exactly a dream ad for Jack in the Box ... Ralphie May chowed down on Jalapeno Poppers and a Chicken Sandwich at 1 AM Friday, and 12 hours later he was dead.

We now know Ralphie's last hours. After performing at Harrah's Thursday night, he and a few other comedians went to Jack in the Box, got take out and went to the private residence where Ralphie was staying with a fellow comedian.

Ralphie took his bag of food into his room at around 1 AM, shut the door and that's the last time anyone saw him alive.

He had a habit of sleeping until noon, so no one thought of checking on him, until Ralphie's assistant showed up just after 12 PM and opened his bedroom door. The assistant found Ralphie unconscious on the floor. We're told it appears he was sitting on the side of the bed when the heart attack struck and he fell over. Paramedics came but said there was nothing they could do. He was dead.

We're told there were no drugs found. In fact, Ralphie famously carried a vape pen, but it had been a long stretch since he used it. One source who was with him nightly says although Ralphie had been battling pneumonia for 6 weeks, he was "80 to 90% better" the night before he died.

We're also told he was in good spirits, although there was one serious source of conflict ... his divorce and his estranged wife. Ralphie felt his wife would not let go of their marriage and was trying to punish him, using their 2 kids as a weapon. 

People in Ralphie's life are extremely upset, because his estranged wife now has complete control of his estate since the divorce was not final. We're told she had closed off many of the people who were close to Ralphie and worked with him.
