Samantha Lee Gibson is dispensing valuable advice about dating famous men. The soon-to-be ex-wife of troubled singer Tyrese Gibson says don't do it.
Samantha, who shares a 2-year-old daughter with the 42-year-old singer/actor, is advising women to steer clear of famous men.
The single mom took to Instagram to explain that famous men are unwilling to compromise because they have too many dating options.
When asked if she would date someone else famous, she responded with an emphatic "NO!"
Samantha confessed that women want to be with famous men for the notoriety, but that's not where your worth or validation comes from.
Tyrese Gibson is already tired of living alone in his Buckhead mansion after splitting from his long-suffering wife, Samantha Lee Gibson.
The 42-year-old Capricorn is going through yet another emotional upheaval in his life.
The "Fast & Furious" star's wife recently filed for divorce. They share a 2-year-old daughter, Soraya.
In an emotional post on Instagram, Tyrese begged God for forgiveness and for an end to the single life:
"With a healing heart I post this..... I am sorry for my sins and sorry for anything I've ever done to anyone rather I'm aware of it or not I just hope you find it in your heart to forgive me..... I have not met my BEST self yet and I know it.... I can't wait to meet the NEW ME!!!!! This single life hits different especially since I could of never ever seen this coming...... Ever.... Back to the basics.... What's your name? Where you from? Who yo momma nem? What you do? What's your credit score? Jesus or Nah? Lol #TheVibes"
The Bible says an apology cannot stand alone. It must be coupled with true contrition, repentance and humility. "The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise."

The ongoing Covid-19 outbreak has claimed yet another Hollywood marriage. Tyrese Gibson and long-suffering wife Samantha have called it quits on their four-year marriage.
The Fast & Furious star, who shares two-year-old daughter Soraya with Samantha, announced the split in a post on his Instagram page on Tuesday.
"We have decided to make a statement of a painful and significant development in our lives," he wrote.
"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."
Tyrese, who regularly documents his turbulent life on social media, continued:
"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."
The actor concluded his post by stating that he wanted not to take any bad energy into 2021.
"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. Thank you, Sincerely & Respectfully, Samantha & Tyrese Gibson."
The girl dad's marriage to Samantha was his second - he was previously married to ex-wife Norma, with whom he shares 13-year-old daughter Shayla.
Tyrese and Samantha shared a mansion in the upscale Buckhead neighborhood of Atlanta. Tyrese showed his benevolent side when his Range Rover was stolen from the driveway of his Buckhead mansion this week.
The luxury vehicle was found 3 hours later and Tyrese bailed the car thieves out of jail to celebrate the New Year with their families.
Tyrese Gibson says Beyonce and LeBron James must be protected "at all costs" because they're such powerful advocates for racial equality.
The 41-year-old singer/ actor just dropped his new single "Legendary" and its powerful accompanying video "8:46," which he says was inspired by the tragic death of George Floyd at the hands of police officers.
In an interview with the Associated Press, Tyrese paid tribute to the celebrities who are attacked on social media for sharing their personal views on the controversial topics.
"Beyonce's 'Black is King' changed my life and changed me forever," he said. "We need to protect Beyonce at all costs. Whatever visions and ideas this powerful Black queen has bouncing around in her mind, we need to be willing to protect her at all costs. We need to protect LeBron James at all costs. He has decided to boldly and specifically step into carrying the torch of speaking up and speaking out."
James, 35, has taken a lot of heat as the unofficial spokesman for the entire NBA. He called for a 2-day NBA boycott to protest in honor of Jacob Blake, the Black Wisconsin man who was shot 7 times in the back by a white police officer while trying to detain him on an outstanding warrant. Blake is paralyzed below the waist.
Tyrese also said he's "so proud" of NFL player Colin Kaepernick, who started the practice of bending a knee during the National Anthem as a protest against police brutality. "Long before it was ever cool to speak up and speak out, he took a knee on behalf of peaceful protest. He compromised his own survival to peacefully protest and speak up and speak out about something that’s on his heart."
A new Internet challenge is sweeping social media. Instagram users are taking the #AgeChallenge and creating pictures of themselves as aged as fine wine.
