A judge scolded Tyrese Gibson and ordered him to pay $10,690 a month in child support for his three-year-old daughter Soraya amid his divorce from ex-wife Samantha Lee Gibson.

TMZ reports that matters became tense during proceedings before Superior Court judge Kevin M. Farmer after Samantha’s attorney noted that Tyrese, 43, had amassed more than $2 million in 2018 despite claiming to have been in financial ruin at the time.

“I’m not doing the CFO thing. Here’s a question for you, smart person,” Tyrese said back, according to TMZ.

No spousal support: Tyrese Gibson was sentenced by a judge on Tuesday to pay child support, but estranged woman Samantha Lee, shown in 2017, will not have to pay spousal support

However, he was cut off by Judge Kevin M. Farmer, who yelled at him, “You’re not asking questions! That’s not how it works!!’ The judge would also have threatened to disrespect the singer if he misbehaved again.

The singer also became officially single during proceedings in Fulton County, Georgia when the judge granted his estranged wife’s petition for divorce, according to a TMZ article. He was also under no obligation to pay spousal support to Gibson.

Tyrese and Samantha have three-year-old daughter Soraya together.

“This is not a punishment for you. Put that money where it belongs, in the child!’, the judge said, announcing the amount of child support.

He also advised both parents not to harm each other in front of their daughter.

The child support was retroactive when Samantha filed for divorce in September 2020, meaning Tyrese owes his ex a lump sum of $209,000.

The judge reduced the amount by $46,000 since Tyrese has been making payments on Samantha’s car for two years, reducing the lump sum to $169,000.

Neither side will have to pay spousal support, as Tyrese asked during a hearing Monday when he refused to pay her claim for $20,000 a month in spousal support.

The court also agreed on Tuesday with his request to keep their 2016 Range Rover, with Samantha getting their 2017 Land Rover Discovery.

Samantha filed for divorce from the six-time Grammy nominee in September 2020, alleging that Tyrese had locked her out of the house. He has denied the allegation.

The musician pointed to “growing up in broken homes without any example of what a husband or father is” as contributing to the demise of his second marriage, claiming that “black families and marriages are under attack” at the time.

Tyrese said in a separate statement that he and Samantha, whom he met in 2015, “will remain best friends and strong co-parents.”
