An undesired custody battle is now a mess that Paul walker is being unceremoniously dragged into. The war of words between Tyrese Gibson and ex-wife Norma resulted in Walker being made part of the argument and Norma is using Walker’s death to dishonor Gibson.
The actor and singer is being called a bad influence on his daughter and termed as a bad parent. Norma Gibson has gone on to state that Gibson, instead of zooming off to Dubai after Walker’s death and should have stayed back and spend some quality time with his daughter.
Norma Gibson was unable to digest Gibson’s immediate travel to Dubai after Walker’s car accident and ridiculed his yacht parties, pricey hotel stays, night-club visits and sky-diving extravaganzas with fellow artists. That he did not stay back in Los Angeles for his daughter after the latest version of Fast and Furious filming got halted is aptly mentioned in the court documents filed by Norma.
Websites of TMZ and Perez Hilton were the first to report the story of Norma accusing Tyrese Gibson and that Paul Walker’s death was being made an unlikely excuse by Norma to put down Gibson in the child custody battle that she is currently waging against him. It’s being reported that sources who are close to Gibson are of the opinion that its unfortunate that Norma has decided to use Walker in the case.
They are also stating that Gibson too is being made a scapegoat for his actions meant primarily to earn money to pay for child support. Gibson’s visit to the Emirates was meant to be official and for earning money from events and gigs organised there. He also reasoned with the fact that he needed the money and that he was only confirming to his commitments.
However, his updates on various websites don’t seem to find enough credence with his statements. To top it off, a website is claiming that Gibson might have even embraced Islam during his visit to Dubai.
Videos available on the various websites are indicating that Gibson visit to Dubai was for his birthday celebration which fell on 30th December. He may decide to call it a lucky coincidence; however, fans are yet to buy into his excuse. Gibson has even received flak for his constant linkup on the social circuit with Paul Walker’s name.
With his public display of grief even during the partying time in Dubai has not gone down well with many. A tribute for Paul Walker in Dubai left Gibson choked with tears and he talked about how much he missed his Fast and Furious co-star. He also mentioned bumping into Bumblebee, the car from Transformers and that the car made him emotional yet again for his association and friendship that he shared with Paul Walker.
The other news of Gibson adopting Islam comes from a video he posted on his Twitter handle. The Islam outreach video titled The Purpose of Life (HD) | Muslim Spoke Word, was posted on 30th December with a comment from Gibson saying, “This gave me life!” He has also divulged about a meeting with an unidentified best friend and spiritual mentor in Dubai to an audience of a TV show. The mentor was credited by Gibson for changing his life forever, finding a sense of purpose and also saw him announcing an impending big plan.
The video of his talk show also talks about his way of finding God and the way he believes in God as a Christian. He goes on to enlighten the audience about how everybody’s walk may not be consistent with the way they talk about god. So, for the time being the question about his conversion remains unanswered and fans would be waiting for the announcement of his big plans.
Meanwhile, the talk show video has received compliments and re-tweets by many fans for some captivating words from Tyrese Gibson. However, he still has an ugly battle to fight with his wife and fans are hoping that Paul Walker’s death is not unnecessarily dragged into any controversy with respect to his child support battle with Norma.
