Three years after their split, actor Tyrese’s ex-wife, Samantha, says she r£gr£ts letting ‘outside influences’ lead to her divorce; admits she’s open to reconciliation

American actor, Tyrese Gibson’s ex-wife, Samantha Lee, has opened up about her decision to divorce him. In a recent interview on the Hardly Initiated Podcast, Lee said that if she had counsel from a supportive “pro-marriage community,” she would not have filed for a divorce. She also admitted that it would have enabled her reconcile with Tyrese if they were both “willing to work”

It would be recalled that the couple tied the knot in February 2017 and announced their split in December 2020 before finalizing the drawn-out proceedings in August 2022.

In August 2023, Tyrese blasted Lee in a song titled, Love Transaction, titled and alleged that their union was a “joke” to his wife while alluding to her requesting $20k in child support for herself and not for their child. Gibson and Lee share a now 5-year-old daughter, Soraya Gibson, whom Gibson was ordered to pay $10,000 for in monthly child support.

He was also ordered to pay more than $230,000 in back child support and a total of $399,000 in legal fees that his second wife acquired during their two-year divorce battle.

According to Lee, she let people influence her decision to leave her marriage and she was “emotionally int%xicated” when she pulled the plug. “It’s very important to seek wise counsel, you have to really decide and make a very calculated decision based on your belief systems. I think we do take divorce very casually. I would never tell a woman to walk through that in the same frame as I was when I did it.

I was very, very, h¥rt, I was very angry,” she added. “I remember when I made the decision I was hysterically crying on the phone with my attorney. I was not in any position to make that decision, I was extremely emotionally int%xicated.”

She added that she was speaking with her attorney when she made her final decision and she believes that was the wrong move. “I would never tell somebody to make that decision when they’re that emotional but of course, I wasn’t talking to someone that genuinely would be for marriage or for reconciliation,” said Lee.

“That’s no slight to my attorney, at the time when I was on the phone and I made that decision, I was livid. I was emotional. If I’m that emotional and I’m that h*rt and I’m on that level, if it’s misguided and misdirected it could go in a bad direction.”

According to Samantha, she was ruminating on all the bad things and not the positive things in her marriage. She added that she wishes she had people in her life who were “pro-marriage” and would “check her” about her feelings.

“The people I had in my ear at the time were not for that.The truth about the matter is that if I had different people in my ear at that time I would not have made that decision.”

Samantha noted that a Tyrese reconciliation is not out of the question. “It’s my daughter’s father so I would say this,” began Lee. “If we were both going to show up and we were both going to #ght for it equally and sacrifice equally, like you know things that I needed and you know things that he knows he needed, I wasn’t perfect. If we were both willing to fight and we were both willing to do certain things, then yes…no one wants a brokEn family.”
