TYRESE WANTS NEW JUDGE TO OVERTURN $10K A MONTH CHILD SUPPORT: According to TMZ, Tyrese wants a new judge to overturn $10,000 monthly child support payments. As previously reported, the actor/singer was ordered to keep paying $10k in his divorce case. In new court docs, Tyrese said that Judge Farmer, who was presiding over the divorce, was clearly biased against him. He said that during a pretrial meeting in Judge Farmer's chambers, he apparently told Tyrese and his ex, Samantha Lee Gibson, that he thought $10,690 per month in child support was appropriate based on the financial evidence and that he didn't care if Gibson was a “greedy, gold-digging b*tch.” Tyrese is claiming that the judge already made up his mind on how things should go even before hearing arguments and testimony in court.
