Tyrese’s ex-wife, Samantha Lee expresses regret for divorcing him [Video]

Samantha Lee, ex-wife of American singer and actor, Tyrese Gibson, has expressed regret over her decision to divorce the ‘Fast and Furious’ star.

She said that if she had advice from a supportive “pro-marriage community”, she would not have filed for dissolution of her marriage.

Speaking during a recent chat on Hardly Initiated podcast with Ryan Catchngs and Tysean Jackson, the social worker added that she would reconcile with Tyrese if they were both “willing to work.”

The couple tied the knot in February 2017 and announced their split in December of 2020.

According to Lee, she let people influence her decision to leave her marriage and she was “emotionally intoxicated” when she pulled the plug.

In her words; “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, hurt, I was very angry. 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 intoxicated.”

Lee added that she was speaking with her attorney when she made her final decision, and she believes that was the wrong move.

She said, “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.

“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 hurt and I’m on that level, if it’s misguided and misdirected it could go in a bad direction.

“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.

“I’m an extremely emotional person, there will be moments where [it’s] like, ’I’m ready to be done, ’I can’t stand this!’ ‘He don’t do this!’ we’re just focusing on these things, and because you don’t have a certain person in your life to check you and say ‘Sis, what about this—what about these strengths?’”

“You may not be thinking about when you’re upset. You’re only thinking about what you’re mad about, you’re not thinking about all the other positive aspects of this person, so in those moments you need somebody to be that person for that person in those moments.”
