Hollywood actor and singer, Tyrese Gibson and wife, Samantha Lee Gibson have announced that they would be getting a divorce.
The couple who have been married since Valentine’s Day, February 2017 made the announcement in their respective Instagram accounts.
The couple wrote,
“We have decided to make a statement of a painful and significant development in our lives. After much thought, consideration, and prayer, We unfortunately have made the difficult decision to officially separate & divorce.
Our intention is to remain the best of friends & strong coparents. We feel incredibly blessed to have found each other and deeply grateful for the 4 years we have been married to each other. Our journey together has been a ride of both ups & downs, but it’s a journey that neither of us would have chosen to take with anyone else. We truly have so much love & respect for each other. We both have grown tremendously within this relationship; we have shared so many beautiful memories and moments, and we also look forward to see the amazing futures we have ahead of us individually.
As if 2020 hasn’t already been extremely grueling and challenging to us all we wanted to mutually speak on this now to keep this energy in 2020 and not take this energy into 2021. We would really appreciate your most sincere prayers and to respect our privacy at this time as we deal with the reality of where we are.
Sincerely & Respectfully,
Samantha & Tyrese Gibson”
In a subsequent post, Tyrese shared a video of his beautiful moments with Samantha Lee and their daughter.
In the caption, the Fast and Furious actor said that Black families and Black marriages are under attack because they never got an example of how to be good husbands or father’s while growing up.
He penned that he will continue to be a good father to their three year-old daughter, Samaya Rayas.
“Black families and marriages are under attack.
Pain got me back in the holy grail… [ the studio ] No there’s no album coming this was inspired by the love of my life Samantha…. Thank you for the years I hope you know that I did the very best I could… I truly did… #BetterDays
I’ve wrestled with this question… How can we naturally know how to BE something we were never raised by?
Most of us were raised in broken homes with NO examples of what being a husband, wife or FATHER is….
I repeat…. How can we naturally know how to BE something we were never raised by?
My heart is so full because you’ve blessed me with 5 years of magic…. Samantha Gibson, I owe you everything.
I am a better man of God, friend, and father because of you…
I pray we leave the door open because the God that we serve is a mountains mover and can make a way out of no way…..
My boobie bubby…
Your forever husband,
