On Tuesday, Tyrese shocked the world when he dropped news that he secretly tied the knot. The singer/actor told fans about his Valentine’s Day nuptials with a sweet video post on Instagram, and a follow-up post about the couples pre-marital counseling with Pastor Creflo Dollar.
But, he left out one important detail — who is this woman. Many who follow Tyrese on social media know he’s been praying for a (second) wife. Now her identity has been revealed and some interesting details that may shock you.
The new Mrs. Gibson’s name is Samantha Lee. Sources close to Tyrese revealed her identity, and get this, she isn’t some video vixen / or IG model. Lee, who also goes by Samantha Lee Schwalenberg, is an accomplished social worker with a Masters Degree in social work from University of Georgia.
She also is Black! Despite Tyrese calling her his #BlackQueen on Instagram, many of his followers questioned her ethnicity. Lee is a native of Dayton, New Jersey, and is of Ecuadorian, African-American and Jamaican decent. According to her Facebook page, she resides in Athens, Georgia.
She also makes her own money. According to sources, she brings in a hefty salary working for the Division of Family and Children Services in Georgia. She mainly handles sex and human trafficking cases and counseling for inmates.
Gibson also confirmed her identity on his Instagram page Thursday afternoon. “TMZ actually got it right! This Time!” the Fast & Furious actor said, referring to a story the site posted detailing their romance.
Apparently the pair met through mutual friends back in 2015. Gibson attended the UNCF Mayor’s Masked Ball in Atlanta with Lee this past December.
The couple will honeymoon in Egypt.
Gibson, 38, was previously married to Norma Mitchell for two years before splitting in 2009. The pair share a 9-year-old daughter, Shayla.
