Actor Tyrese Gibson is once again embroiled in legal battles over his divorce case in Georgia, this time seeking to have the judge presiding over the case replaced due to alleged bias. In legal documents obtained by TMZ, Tyrese complains about the handling of the case by Judge Kevin Farmer and is pushing for a new judge to be appointed.
One of the major grievances highlighted by Tyrese is the abrupt cancellation of a court hearing by Judge Farmer, who then ordered Tyrese to come up with a hefty $450,000 bond within 10 days in connection with his appeal of an order in the case. Tyrese argues that he was not given the opportunity to explain how it would be impossible for him to come up with the cash that quickly, citing the Hollywood strikes impacting his ability to work and make money this year.
Furthermore, Tyrese claims that the scheduled hearing was scrapped just a few days before it was set to take place, leading him to believe that Judge Farmer has a personal vendetta against him. This is not the first time that Tyrese has attempted to have Judge Farmer removed from the case. In September 2022, Tyrese alleged that the judge made derogatory remarks about his ex-wife, Samantha Lee Gibson, and belittled him during his testimony.
To support his claims, Tyrese points to a previous instance where Judge Farmer reportedly told him he thought the child support ordered in the case was appropriate and dismissed Tyrese’s concerns about his ex-wife’s financial motives, calling her a “greedy, gold-digging bitch.” Tyrese also alleged that Judge Farmer admonished him during his testimony, making him feel belittled and disrespected.
In addition to his legal battles, Tyrese has also faced personal challenges, including the breakdown of his marriage. Photos of Tyrese and Samantha Lee Gibson together have been the subject of public scrutiny and have added fuel to their already contentious divorce proceedings.
As Tyrese continues to fight for a fair resolution to his divorce case, it remains to be seen whether his latest complaints about Judge Farmer will result in a new judge being assigned to the case. Despite facing obstacles in his pursuit of justice, Tyrese remains determined to advocate for a fair and just outcome, hoping that his claims this time around will be enough to warrant a new judge on the case. As the legal saga unfolds, the public awaits a resolution to the ongoing dispute and the implications it may have for future proceedings.
