The judge reportedly agreed to let Norma Gibson take the child overseas during her allotted visitation time, but determined that she has to surrender Shayla’s passport to the court upon their return.
Actor and singer Tyrese Gibson has lost a bid to keep his daughter from travelling to Israel with her mum.
Norma Gibson filed an emergency petition on Tuesday, June 05, seeking permission to take 10-year-old Shayla overseas on vacation.
The Fate of the Furious star’s lawyers objected to her request, citing security concerns, and the judge initially sided with Gibson, ordering Norma to turn over Shayla’s passport.
However, according to The Blast, Norma appealed the decision and on Thursday, June 07, the ruling was reversed.
The judge reportedly agreed to let Los Angeles resident Norma take the child overseas during her allotted visitation time, but determined that she has to surrender Shayla’s passport to the court upon their return.
The court official also urged the two parties to try and resolve a disagreement about their summer visitation schedule between themselves.
Tyrese and Norma have been battling it out in court since last year (17), after she accused him of spanking their child so severely she couldn’t sit down. During the legal spat, Tyrese was prevented from seeing Shayla.
He was finally awarded 50/50 custody and the actor is now seeking primary custody, so he can raise Shayla in Atlanta, Georgia with her baby sister, who is due in September.
