Tyrese Gibson wants his ex-wife Samantha Lee to drop his last name following their bitter divorce. The “Sweet Lady” singer asked Samantha to “run” him back his last name after she dissed him in an Instagram video.
Tyrese called Samantha out during Joe Budden’s podcast on Nov. 24, after she blamed her friends for talking her into divorcing him.
Tyrese said she only wanted to reconcile because she was being evicted from her apartment.
“She is loving it. Congratulations, you went viral again over something else that you said ’cause you trying to build up your YouTube page and get your followers up. If you had people in your ear at the time, they must be still in your ear because you still trying to get $20,000 a month for a 5-year-old. You make $160,000 a year on your own.”
He said a 5-year-old doesn’t need $20,000 and he called his ex-wife a “narcissist” and a “sociopath.”
Samantha responded in a caption on her Instagram video.
“Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. You can learn a lot about people by how they respond/react to certain boundaries you set. The funny thing is, some people KNOW how they were doing you (probably worse than you even found out about in the moment) and yet you become the horrible person, the villain, in their story because you decided to set a boundary.”
Tyrese re-posted the video and asked Samantha to “run” him his name back.
“She had a whole baby and faked a whole marriage to get the BAG. 3 law firms later… just hear her out guys… Please… Zelie and I are over here decorating this tree and trying to take advantage of these cyber Monday sales to come… Swipe left and just know whoever this person is… She hates my guts and yet her drivers license still says Gibson.”
The singer/actor added that his daughter, Soraya, can keep his last name. But as for Samantha: “Your trash a** birth name is Samantha Schwalenberg,” he wrote.
Tyrese and Samantha Lee were married from 2017 to 2020. They welcomed their daughter Soraya in 2018.
