The divorce battle between Tyrese and his estranged wife continues as he has reportedly filed a motion to block her “unreasonable” demands.

The Fast & Furious star claims that Samantha Lee Gibson has hired three lawyers and is demanding that he pay high attorney fees, according to court docs reportedly obtained by Samantha, who is Tyrese’s second wife, was married to him from 2017-2020. They have a three-year-old daughter, Soraya, and she is requesting $20,000 a month in child support, plus 100% of the child’s expenses, including medical bills, private school, nannies, etc.

The couple announced they were seeking a divorce in December 2020. Samantha alleges that the 42-year-old singer/actor cut her off financially and had locked her and Soraya, out of their home in Georgia.

Tyrese is now involved with model Zelie Timothy, and as previously reported, last month they faked they were breaking up to promote her YouTube channel. He made the admission in a nine-minute Instagram video, with Timothy laughing behind him.

“It was my idea,” Tyrese confessed. “We just want to apologize. We broke up for a good three-and-a-half minutes. We did it for the ‘Gram.'”
