    Tyrese Gibson will now serve as his own attorney in his ongoing court battle surrounding his daughter

    The 'Fast and Furious' star is locked in a legal battle with his ex-wife Norma, who is seeking to obtain a permanent restraining order against him after alleging that he had pushed their 10-year-old daughter Shayla to the ground and beat her in a rage


    And now, sources close to the singer and actor have claimed to The Blast that he will now be representing himself in the trial, as his former attorney Terry Levich Ross, filed documents stating a substitution of attorney in the case.

    The source claims the 38-year-old star will now be “pro per” going forward, meaning that whilst he no longer has to pay legal fees, he will have to make a case for himself to the judge at his next hearing, which is set for Tuesday (14.11.17).

    Last month, Tyrese was granted a monitored six-hour visit with his daughter, which marked the first time the star had been allowed to see her in two months.

    Meanwhile, Tyrese - who was married to Norma from 2007 to 2009 - has filed documents to have the restraining order application thrown out, in which he claimed he believes Shayla had been coached into telling a story while under her mother's care.

    Norma has claimed Tyrese should be kept away from them both as a result of his alleged abuse, but he insists the accusations are false, and his former spouse is just bitter because of his marriage to social worker Samantha Lee Gibson, which took place earlier this year.

    The 'Transformers' star insisted that the only recent domestic violence incident involving them was when Norma texted him saying she wanted to have his fingers cut off, something which she previously admitted in a court declaration.

    Over the weekend, the star revealed he has started a fund to help other fathers fund their own custody battles.

    He said: "Counting the days. And trying to put my mind at ease. #ShaylaRocks.com just went LIVE with LOVE we started a fund and with every shirt sold we're going to get fathers proper representation and the kids need their own lawyers TOO. (sic)."
