According to reports,Norma Gibson alleged that Tyrese Gibson hit their daughter “between 12 and 16 times” in August, and she was granted temporary legal and physical custody. Gibson denied the “hurtful lies,” and over the weekend, child services confirmed that they closed their investigation and would not be seeking criminal charges against the actor.
