Exclusive: Tyrese Prayed Over By Fan At Courthouse + What Singer Is Saying About Fight Over Daughter



UPDATE: HipHollywood can confirm that Thursday morning’s hearing family court was very contentious. As Tyrese and his, ex, Norma Gibson, sat before a judge in the very public battle over their 10-year-old daughter, Shayla, Tyrese’s lawyer yelled at Norma’s attorney in anger.

The battle became so heated the judge called for a recess. In the hallway outside the courtroom, Gibson appeared to be visibly upset.


Just nearly 24 hours after posting an emotional video on social media pleading for the court to not take his “baby away,” Tyrese appeared in a Los Angeles courtroom in the nasty fight over his daughter, Shayla.

HipHollywood caught the singer as he headed inside the courthouse on Thursday morning and despite going through a troubled past few months, Gibson appeared to be in good spirits.

While entering the building, a fan not only stopped to embrace the former TGT member with a hug, but to proceeded to pray over him.

Gibson is currently in family court over claims by ex, Norma Gibson, that he has been abusive towards their 9-year-old daughter. The singer unveiled to HipHollywood that all he wants is for this to be over so he can have his daughter back.

He also confirmed that the judge will be going on vacation and things will hopefully wrap up when he returns.

As previously reported, Norma was granted a temporary restraining order against the pop star, who has been ordered to stay away from their daughter.


5 Reasons You Need To Know Daveed Diggs



If you don’t know the name Daveed Diggs you will now! The Oakland native is definitely one to watch in Hollywood. Here are five reasons why.

1. He has already taken Broadway by storm.

In 2016 Diggs nabbed a Tony and a Grammy award for his role as Marquis de Lafayette/ Thomas Jefferson in “Hamilton.” Believe it or not Diggs didn’t even audition for the role. While substitute teaching in Marin County, CA he met Hamilton’s eventual star and creator Lin Manuel-Miranda and director, Thomas Kail who invited him to join their free-style rap group and later helped them craft the fast-rapping revolutionary. 

2. He’s funny. 

Diggs is proving he’s also got some amazing comedy chops with two memorable recurring sitcom roles: one as Perry, the crush du jour for Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) on Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and the other on ABC’s black-ish as Johan, the free-spirited brother of Rainbow (Tracee Ellis Ross). In fact, Black-ish creator Kenya Barris wrote the role for Diggs after being “blown away” by his performance on stage.

3. His first feature film Wonder is in theaters now.

In the film based on the New York Times best-selling novel of the same name, Diggs plays Mr. Browne the fifth grade teacher at the school where lead Jacob Tremblay attends. Diggs landed the role after wrapping his run in “Hamilton” and told HH it was like a crash course in film acting alongside Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson.

4. He’s a rapper. 

His experimental noise rap group Clipping has garnered a major cult following on Youtube. Their LP CLPPNG was an Album Of The Week back in 2014. And in 2016 the trio performed on The Late Late Show with James Corden to promote the release of their six-track EP Wriggle. 

5. He is executive producer of ABC’s The Mayor.  

The show about a struggling young rapper (Brandon Micheal Hall) who runs for local office (and wins) to boost his popularity, debuted this Fall and already is garnering wave reviews. Not surprisingly Diggs and his Clipping bandmates William Hutson and Jonathan Snipes, also produce all the music for the show.
