Tyrese’s Wife Speaks Against Naysayers To Prove She Was “Successful” Before Him

Posted On : August 2, 2017
Tyrese Gibson and his wife, Samantha

Singer/actor, Tyrese Gibson, is known to speak his mind. So much so, that many of us probably remember when he caught major flack about his new wife, Samantha. A while back, most of Tyrese’s African American female fans were very offended after he referred to his visibly biracial wife as a “Black Queen.” He then proceeded to clap back at those fans, by insensitively pointing out that his wife is “natural” and doesn’t have to wear “weaves” and such, which was like pouring water on a gasoline fire. Later, he stated that he never meant to offend anyone, but the damage was already done.

Well, now Samantha has decided to publicly speak her mind online as well, regarding their relationship. It’s unclear what provoked Samantha to post a lengthy message, in which she’s proclaiming that Tyrese did not ‘make’ her. But whatever the reason, Samantha wants the world to know that she was already “successful” long before Tyrese wife’d her. Here’s what she wrote…

On marrying Tyrese and her prior struggles:

“There’s people who treat me like I’ve made it because of the man that happen to be married to. NO!!!! I considered myself successful before I even gave him the time of day! I worked my behind off in high school, achieved high grades, worked multiple jobs and helped my momma clean homes and have a daycare service to make ends meet.”

On her education,finances, and health:

“I went to a great college, worked multiple jobs throughout school, dealt with abusive, heartbreaking relationships and friendships, serious family problems, economic hardships, homelessness, debilitating health problems, and I still managed to graduate on time, cum laude at UGA with my Bachelors of Science.”

On her hardships, hard work and dedication:

“I had several jobs upon graduating, which became a habit of mine, had a place with roommates, and did very well saving up enough money to go back to school to get my masters. Battled homeless again, exhaustion, emotional hardships Worked at some of the most difficult places in social work, and maintained a 3.98 GPA while hustling on the side as a bartender. I graduated, worked as cleaning woman, a bartender and at a DV / trafficking site while studying for my licensure upon graduating with my masters. I got my licensure and waited on God for my perfect job working within the school system. AND maintained my bartending job for some extra income.”

Okay ILOSM fam,’ y’all got that message from Tyrese’s “Black Queen” loud and clear, right? Good…now, onto what I really want to know: When will Tyrese and Taraji P. Henson be making a Baby Boy sequel? I’d rather be talking about that great chemistry between “Jody” and “Yvette.”
