Tyrese Held In Contempt At Court

Judge Orders Him To Pay $638k In Child Support And Lawyer Fees

Tyrese appeared in Fulton County court on Tuesday to continue his child support dispute with Samantha Lee Gibson. According to TMZ, the hearing was held because the singer/actor refused to pay the $10,000 a month he was ordered to pay in August because he believed the judge was prejudiced against him. Tyrese felt $10,000 was excessive while on the stand since he believes Samantha Lee doesn’t need that much because she makes enough money to care for their daughter, Soraya.

Earlier today, he also made a video criticizing Judge Kevin Farmer and requested civil rights lawyers Ben Crump and Martin Luther King III to defend him. On the other hand, Farmer found Tyrese in contempt for failing to pay the required child support charge and was sentenced to pay $237,944 in overdue child support.
