Tyrese Claims He’s Unable To Pay Child Support Because Of Writer’s Strike

Tyrese Gibson has fallen behind with his child support payments to his ex-wife, Samantha Lee, and he says it’s all because of the Hollywood writer’s strike.

Tyrese was ordered to pay Samantha $10,000 a month in child support but the actor says he doesn’t have it.

Samantha dragged him back to court using evidence of his lavish trips abroad, which he posts evidence of on social media.

“The years in which he films [a Fast & Furious] franchise movie, his income is the highest in those years,” his attorney writes in the court docs. “In 2022, [Gibson] filmed the franchise movie in question, and he has not filmed any segment in that franchise movie since 2022. Consequently, [Gibson’s] income has fluctuated downward since the trial in this case, and as expected, [Gibson] does not earn the same amount that he earned in August 2022.”

The writer’s strike hit many Hollywood workers hard and Tyrese says he’s still trying to get back on his feet.
